Ya.... so this is awkward.
Hi friends! :)
I've obviously taken a sabbatical from my blog.
Number 1: I want to say thank you to all of you who have commented, emailed, and "facebooked" me. It's been a rough year and I have felt so supported by the blog communtity. So, thank you for that... I mean it.
I am a real person, sitting here in my real house, with a real family who needs me as a mom and wife, sister and daughter. So, that's where I've been for the last few months. Being me.
Number 2: My blog and shop have need to be on a backburner for a long while. I've tried really hard at keeping it afloat during this year... I was just trying to keep vital signs, to be honest. I've gone back and forth as to whether I should close the shop and delete my blog altogether. I just didn't like doing it half way. It's not good to let it sit and collect cob webs... I am totally aware of that. I just don't have the heart to close up shop... I can't do it!!! I haven't made any decisions yet and I may just take it one month at a time for now.
I am looking forward to the Holidays and I have some things in mind already... I will be offering my Snowy Chaples and Christmas Cottages again this year... I will make as many as I can. Right now I have 12 in the works, hopefully I can make more than that!
So, If you are out there and reading this... thank you!
My life has changed so much. In good ways.
I just started a new job. I'm working 32 hours a week. This has been hard for me to do as I haven't really worked this much (away from home) in over 13 years... since my first child was born! I really like the job and think it's a good fit for me.
Actually, I think it's helping with my creative slump... I FINALLY FEEL LIKE MAKING SOMETHING!! This is big for me. The last year has been no good for making art... no good at all. But, I'm coming around.
Recently, I was honored to be a Sponor at Jenn Hayslip's event Once Upon A Dream (TOTALLY WISH I COULD HAVE GONE!!!). I sent a Kanzashi flower clip to each attendee... They are hand sewn flowers that are the cutest little embellishments or clippies! I hope the gals enjoyed them, they were really fun to make! :)
Well, I feel like I've rambled. Sorry, I forgot how to blog.
Ehhh, you don't mind do you??
Here is a pic of me at a recent masquerade fundraiser... good times.
My sincerest thanks to you all,
