I am still here and Missed you ALL!!

Well Hello everyone, how have you all been?  I have fallen off the blog band wagon since...DEC. 14th!!
As some of you know, I have a series A Craft a Day While Colt's Away.  Had made the commitment to do a craft every day till he gets back from Iraq.  WELL, life and daily doings overtake us and this has turned into something I cannot do.  Yes, I could totally avoid laundry, meals, errands, bills, etc...and craft all the time, but this isn't possible.  I was avoiding things and family trying to keep up with this crazy idea I had.  I had things in December to do, you know Christmas, parties, church, gift buying, Christmas Dinner and all and my blog and projects were put on hold.  I am now going to do the crafts when time allows and get back into the enjoyment of it, instead of it being a struggle.  (I can do the craft, but then there's the picture taking, editing, posts and that is a job in itself!) 
We have also made the decision to sell our home which we built 3 years ago and is too big for the hubby and I to take of with the five acres and especially since our last little child will graduate in a year.  I have been getting ready for the Realtor and boy, you live in a house differently than when you show it.  So closets have been gone thru, rooms painted and those dust bunnies!  I had a pack of them living in places you wouldn't think off!  We are going to downsize from a 4300 sf house to a smaller one and get an RV and drive the country with our dogs, remember Angus and Winston?  My husband's job requires a telephone and computer, so we have decided to trade the big house and all the work that goes with it and get more simple.  Isn't spending your time doing something enjoyable really important?  So in 2011, we are making big changes and looking forward to them.  So, Happy Belated New Year to you all.  I will be posting the projects as they come to me and what I have missed most is your company and friendship.
And remember, don't get stuck on something that doesn't work!

Blessings,
Denise

  1. Hi, Denise - great to hear what's been happening with you. Here's my take: your crafts are so adorable, each one counts three times! So you're still not behind. Good luck on the house stuff - not the most fun thing to tackle. Thanks for the picture of Junk Dawggie, cutest thing I've seen all day!

  2. Hey Denise! Love your blog, love your crafts, love you more! Jealous of your talent. I so wish we could buy your house! But, not really in our budget!! It would be fantastic to have that much room with the 3 boys! Best wishes and have fun!!
    Hugs and Love,
    Laurie
