Where do I begin…

All I have to say is that it's been a while…. Where do I begin….. When we have tough moments, we tend to let go of certain things, even if those things matter a lot to us.  I need to apologize to my blog readers.  I am so very sorry for leaving you behind. My life had been so unstable since the separation with my husband in 2012 that I needed to focus on the not so fun stuff… Although it took what seem forever to settle things, we have always been good parents.  Do we disagree on certain things?  Absolutely, more than ever!!!  The important part to me, is that our girls are ok. They did not choose to have separated parents and  we need to make it work as much as possible. The girls will be my priority forever.  As a mom, it was my job to insure they were ok throughout the process.  There is always two side to every story, let me just say mine has been a rough one.  I  lost my hair, cried my heart out, couldn't sleep etc…  I have moved from my matrimonial home which had my studio in a 1200 square foot walk out basement.  Let me tell you, in 6 years, I had accumulated lots of stamping supplies and it was no fun to pack all  of my stuff from a 6000 square foot home.  I only had every second week to pack because we shared the house for a long long while and we, the parents would  leave every week.  Our girls always stayed home…   When moving day got there, all I can say was it's about friggin' time.  I left my house key on the kitchen counter and never looked back.   On a positive note, the girls got to keep the house with their dad.  So at least they get to stay in the house they grew up in.  And they come to stay with me in my new home every second week.  It might not be a mansion but I have made it "home".  "Love grows best in little houses, with fewer walls to separate. Where you eat and sleep so close together, you can't help but communicate. If we had more room between us, think of all we'd miss.  Love grows best in houses just like MINE!!!"  That is what it feels like, HOME!!!  Ironically, I feel more like home in the new house then in my old waterfront home.  I go back there for the girls from time to time and it doesn't even bother me.   It never felt right… 

Let's fast speed to the rest.  I returned to work full time so I can provide for myself and the girls.  I commute to work 1.5 hrs back and forth daily.  So now you can see, I briefly resumed a couple of stressors…  I didn't even share the juicy stuff….  I could write 3 novels to share the ups and downs of these past 4 years.   It's been a heck of a roller coaster…..I'm surprised I haven't gone cray cray…. Major stressors can affect you pretty hard ( separation, moving, new job)…

If I am writing to you today, it's because things are a lot better now.  For the first time in a very long time, I stamped. My girls and my hunk of a guy have been encouraging me to get back in the studio.  I was scared that I had lost my mojo!!! Today, I would like to dedicate my projects to Chris and my lovely daughters.  Thank you for pushing me back into this. I miss my stamping friends dearly and I hope I can reconnect by blogging.

I created projects from the new 2015-2016 Holiday Catalogue… On p. 7 , item #140969. I love and adore the  witching decor project kit. I used the kit to create not only the witch hat but I had enough products to make a page and a card.  And I still had leftovers:)  So I hope you like my projects and still feel I have my mojo.  All  I can say is I'm back;)

If you want a Witches Hat Kit, you better buy it NOW.  The inventory is LOW and Stampin'Up!  will not be replenishing the inventory once it's gone. I'm excited to be hosting a class in the first weeks of October.  Seats are limited.  Therefore, reserve your spots.  This is a perfect decoration piece for the home or if you are a teacher, at school. The kids will adore.  It's one of my favorite projects:)  I love that we get to create extra projects with the left over pieces.  Order on my site item number #140969. click HERE to order.
