Hellooooo, Sweet Friends~

I made a card.  My close friends know what a big deal this is.  My paper crafting mojo has been gone for soooo long... but good things are happening in my life now, and this resurgence of creativity is bringing me so much joy.
My break from blogging has been quite trans-formative.  So much has happened in these past six months.  So many good things are happening in my life right now.  I feel so very blessed.
Several months ago, I cleaned out my studio-- with the help and encouragement from a dear friend.  It has lifted my heart.  (I had no idea that absurd amounts of ribbon and crap stuff could weigh me down so much.)  I've been able to have my friends over several times to play, and it's been so fun!  

My studio is my playroom again... and this girl is ready to play.

OXO,


PS:  Jami, if you're reading this... this was your Christmas card!  It was returned to me because I used your old address.  Next year's card will get to you safely... I promise!

Wooohoooo...she's back! I have missed reading your blog, and keeping up with all your goings-on, but it makes me so so happy to read that good things are happening in your life right now! Thrilled to bits to see your paper craft too (LOL How long have I been asking for you to share some?) So worth the wait...it is classic, pretty, beautiful...just like I knew your style would be :) Having friends over to play is so much fun...yay for you!

Welcome back -- missed you! It is amazing how encouraging and inspiring a little studio housekeeping can be. I'm in the midst of it myself.

Wishing you all the best in 2013 with an extra dose of joy. :-)
