I am Still Here....

Hi Everyone..

I am still here...not much creating has been going on...so my poor Blog has been VERY neglected...
actually..it's more like it was "abandoned"...temporarily...

I spent the first 2 1/2 weeks of December in bed with the flu..and then 3 more weeks out of bed..but housebound...feeling "not too great"....Gary and Chelsea stepped in and kept things going and i give each of them an A+++...and am grateful for their willingness to do their best at keeping up on things while I was in bed..so December is a big blur to me..with 5 weeks of being home..going nowhere and not doing a thing. (no cards...no housework...no big hullabaloo for Christmas here at our house..NOTHING)...(I did venture out one Day mid December thinking I was feeling okay....and did a Cards Only Daytime Workshop for 3 hours..but realized at the end of the day that opting to do that was a BIG mistake...and so back to bed I went for another week...

Finally last week..I realized that I am feeling a little bit more like my usual self..and have started to get back to normal..

I had my first all day monthly workshop of this new year on Saturday (had to cancel December)..and it felt SO good to be back in the creative mode...

Now I am anxious to start digging thru some of the things that I had ordered in December...while home sick.. I have unopened boxes here filled with lots of goodies..everything from 2 HUGE SU orders...to dies..nesties..stamps..card stock..gorgeous paper..lots of BG 6 x 6 pads...embellishments... a great order of Ornare piercing templates... copics...and lots more that I can't even remember...

I'll feel like its Christmas all over again when I finally open everything up...and have time to try things out...

..I hope that this fresh New Year brings only good and wonderful things to you...and I'll look forward to sharing some creativity with you here on my Blog....and to get back to visiting each of your blogs...

PS..the card pictured here is a simple very basic card that we made at the Monthly Cards Only Workshop this past weekend...this was the basic card..and then variations were made starting with this fold and basic sketch
