Hello ScrappinCookie Fans & Followers,
Its been a little bit more than TWO years since my last post. Things got a bit hectic for me and I needed to take a break. At one point I was on 3 to 4 Design Teams - although I know a few designers who do the same, it was just too much for me at the time. I wasn't meeting deadlines or posting projects, my work quality wasn't as before, I was letting my fellow Design Team Members and Followers down, and what was more important I was neglecting my family. I knew I had to do something about it and thought that a short break would be the answer, but little did I know that it would be TWO YEARS before I could sit down to write up a blog post again.
A few things have happened during these two years. I went from being a CITY GAL straight to the COUNTRY - with chickens and all!! Its been a life change - not drastic, as we have some of the amenities we were used to within a 20 minute drive, but still a life change. We are surrounded by several farms and open space. Schools have a better rating and classrooms are so much smaller - the kids went from having 30+ classmates to 15 classmates! We are so happy here!
Not only did I become a proud owner of a country home, but I also became a PROUD MOM to a new bundle of joy! In June 2015, I gave birth to my 3rd child - a precious little boy. That's right, I'm now a proud mom to THREE BOYS! They are now 12 yrs old, 9 yrs old, 13 months and growing ever so fast!
Life is starting to settle back down a bit - although with THREE BOYS there is always an adventure around the corner and with a country home there is always something to do - I felt it was time for me to slowly start making my way back into paper crafting - some of you might have already seen some of my work on Facebook. It has always been a passion of mine and I have so much fun doing it. And now that I have a space ALL TO MY OWN, its all that more fun! During these two years, I have not been completely gone. I've done some lurking around and tried to stay up-to-date with trends. I've also worked on a few projects for the kids' teachers and a few random things.
Before this turns into a HUGE novel, I'd like to end it with a BIG THANK YOU to all my fans & followers for continuing to follow my work and blog. At least I hope there are a few of you out there, but if I'm talking to myself - I understand. I'd love to do a giveaway, but at this time I don't have anything to offer - sorry. I do have some fun things planned for the blog in the upcoming days. I can't promise I will have a project to share with you everyday, but I will have some spread throughout the month. So be sure to sign-up for the email newsletter to be updated of when I do.
