HELLO, Hello, hello…. 
is anyone THERE, There, there….
Hi everyone!  So it's been awhile, um ok months, since I posted.  
Oh dear….I'm so sorry!   
Essentially things got ridiculously CRAZY in my life.  I took on a few too many things.  And something had to give, it ended up being my blog.   (I feel like I'm apologizing for a bad breakup or something, ha).  Anyway I've missed it so, and I've missed the entire blogging community.  I haven't even had time to enjoy other blogs.  My google reader ticked way beyond a thousand months ago.  Whoops.  Then I gave myself a new years resolution to start up in January…  and I made it, with a few hours to spare;)!
So here I am!  I may not be the most consistent blogger.  I have so many other things that need more attention, like my kids.  But when I show up I'll try to make my posts worth while.  Also, to those of you who have written me the sweetest comments, and I haven't responded, please oh please forgive me.  I hope I haven't offended anyone, I just had to step away from the whole blogging gig until my life seemed somewhat more manageable.  
Bless you for sticking around!

Now I'm so excited to blog some fun stuff.  I've got a couple parties and random happiness to share.  I'm even going to slide some of my summer stuff in the mix… think of it as some sunshine in the winter!   

I'm also so excited to announce that I'm going to start selling my 
long stemmed fabric roses.
  (If I can ever figure out all this etsy stuff).   I had quite a few darlings ask if I'd be willing to make them some.  I love making them, and I love the idea of someone actually wanting something I've made.  I'm excited and nervous all at the same time.   I won't have them ready for a few more weeks, but my studio is currently filled with twigs and yummy fabric!  So here goes nothing!

So folks… I'm back, and so excited to be!  Thanks for not giving up on me!
Kisses, hugs and lots of love to all of you!!!
