Could it be true? Tara posted an update?!?

I can hardly believe it myself!
Not a day goes by that I don't think about my blog
How it's sitting all alone, left in the cold
Probably crying itself to sleep at night
Feeling unloved and neglected.
Wait, am I talking about my blog or my scraproom?
Probably both!
Things have been busy, I know, same story, different post!
While I have been insanely occupied I have still managed to crank out a few artistic creations
This is a piece I painted with Golden acrylics on watercolor paper last week
At first I didn't like it but it's starting to grow on me.

Here's a banner I made with the GCD Studios "Homespun Chic"
They had a design team call that I thought I would try for and then I forgot the deadline and missed it! How typical.

Here's a fun layout titled "Flaky Fun" that I made with some My Mind's Eye and Jenni Bowlin
I used some Maya Mist and Maya Road snowflakes as a mask, such fun!
Mia and her Daddy had a blast sledding back in January (even though they broke the sled! LOL)

Mia celebrated her 6th birthday in December and here's a layout I did using Jen Wilson's Life Stories paper, I LOVE this paper!!!
Of course the adorable Sassafras just adds cuteness to the page.
Do you like my misting along the edges?
I misted over some doilies and really am pleased with the way it turned out.

Another birthday layout I quicklyput together using some of the new MME Quite Contrary line
The stamp is Studio Calico and it is a new fave of mine
My best bud, Tina lent it to me
If she thinks she's getting it back she has lost her mind! LOL

This is another quickie I made
I challenged myself to use scraps/materials that were on my table and nothing else
This is the result!
My Koby was missing his 2 front teeth for months but one is finally growing in!
He is thrilled, to say the least

I saved my favorite for last...
This Homespun Chic line is one of my favorites I have seen in a while, anything retro is right up my alley (Being that I am the Head Housewife of the Bored Housewives!)
The black and white letters are K & Co and I have stocked up on them, LOVE them!

My family has been going through a lot lately
If you wouldn't mind saying a prayer for us I would appreciate it more than you could know.
I have total faith that God will see us through this storm
Thanks for stopping by my blog today
I have missed you all!
