Hey there, everybody! Have you forgotten about me yet?
Not completely, I hope. I'm sorry that I just disappeared like that.
Life had gotten so stressful with going back to work in the evenings, and end of the year school stuff for both my hubby (college) and the boys. Every single moment of every day was accounted for and then some. There was no down-time whatsoever and I was completely miserable. Something in my life had to give, and since it obviously couldn't be my family, and I needed the job, the only thing left was the blog.
For those of you who keep one, I'm sure you know how much time and effort goes in to each post -- from the choosing of a topic, to the photographing of it, the editing of photos, uploading, and then the actual blogging itself, and editing. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. And I've been missing it. Missing YOU. Missing that interaction, the sharing of ideas, and the support of other ladies out there who are just trying to do their creative best like I was (am) every day. But at the time a break was absolutely necessary.
Now that summer vacation has started and hubby is back to work and the kids are out of school, there's a little more free time. I'm still working four nights a week (and the other three are spoken for as well with various activities between the five of us) but the mornings are a little less hectic, a little less stressful. First on my mind was testing the waters again here and seeing if anyone is still around, still interested in the amateur creations and ramblings of an average housewife, mother, and friend.
I likely won't go back to posting five days a week as I did before, but I will try to update regularly. I've still been making cards and things in the time I've been "away" -- not every day, but as often as I was able. So I have some new things to show you, and I'm eager to get back into creating more often, and living a more balanced life.
As I said in my very first post, creating is what makes me happiest. This last month I've been sad, stressed, and full of self-doubt. I know why that is, and I don't want to fall back into that.
So, forget-me-not. I'm back with a new look, new crafts, and renewed energy. I hope you'll come along with me for the ride.
