my apologies

oh, i have been such a bad blogger!

but not to worry –  i have excuses:

– school just started and my feet are definitely NOT firmly planted underneath me!

teaching 2 feels like i have plates spinning in the air and i have to keep running around and making sure everything is spinning!

– i have been prepping for the creative connection.

i leave on tuesday to head out to gussy’s.

since i’m selling there as well as attending there have been many very late-nighters pulled (think 2 a.m.) – yikes!

this will be the longest i’ve been away by myself, and that makes me a little sad.

– and to top things off, crazy me thought last night would be the best night to have a boutique at my house.

despite the mild chaos to get prepped, the night was successful and we had a great turnout!

many thanks to emily and dondi for cleaning my house with me – you are awesome!

so here is a little glimpse of my house last night.

it really was beautiful getting so  many crafty ladies together!

    Beautiful. I am amazed at what you get done in the same 24 hours that I have. Do you have more hours in a day then I do?

    I have been staying up way to late as well getting ready for the Market. I hope I finish everything:/ My husband and I have never been away like this from our kids either. It will be sad leaving them, especially the youngest one. I know that it will be nice for us to get away though.

    When I read that you were doing that at your house, I thought where does she get all that energy and can I have some:) No wonder you stay so slim. You are like an energizer bunny! Can’t wait to meet you and the other woman I have grown to admire:)

    PS. I love how your business cards are so different. Do you have them printed online?

    great issues altogether, you simply won a brand
    new reader. What would you suggest about your put up
    that you simply made some days ago? Any certain?
