I Miss You, Too...

To My Fathful Followers,

I am ever so sorry that I have been MIA for so long. The truth is that between work and being a mom to three (lots of familial obligations), I have been holed up in my room getting ready for a craft fair that is coming up in October. I still have so many things I need to make before then. The good news is that, as soon as I am done, I will take lots of pictures and have many blog posts. So, if you can forgive me, just this once, I promise you will not be disappointed! Until then, stay crafty, my friends!

Blog Candy Winner and Olivia

Awhile back, I was offering some blog candy in the form of 8 Christmas cards. Well, I finally got around to drawing a name from my 26 followers, and the winner is…….


Congratulations, Courtney! Fittingly, it was my own little Courtney who drew the name from the bucket. If you could please get me your contact information, I will get your cards in the mail.

I got to play with another new pack of paper and it will be a great one, as we are having our family pictures done in the fall leaves this year.


I used the paper to make a couple of tags.

A Sad, Sad Day!

Why am I so sad? My little girl stared Kindergarten today! She was fine with it…excited really, but I am not sure that we, her parents, were ready. I can tell you who was NOT ready…her little sister, Alex. She sobbed when Courtney got on the bus today. It is a traumatic thing to lose your playmate. I am sure she will adjust, when she realizes that there are advantages to having Daddy all to herself.
