Explanation of My Absence

Has it really been 1.5 months since I posted?  Where does time go?  Actually, I’ve had a lot of time but “Old Man Winter” has not allowed me to spend much of it here in the dungeon.  It has been soooooo cold in NYC this winter.  Brrrrrrr!  I can’t remember a winter that has been this cold since we moved here 22.5 years ago.

If you have been a blog follower for a while, you know that my computer is in our basement, which I affectionately refer to as “the dungeon” because it’s dark and cold.  We have a portable electric heater that I could use, but because the electric service is so old in our house, I’m afraid to use it.  Most times I just stay upstairs where it is at least a bit warmer — although, I think that we have swiss cheese windows because it’s cold up there too!

You may remember that I took the summer off.  Well, it ended up being more than the summer.  This fall was rough.  We’ve been dealing with some issues at the house (it had gotten so bad we had to call Terminix), we had a car accident at the end of our week long celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary and ended up getting a new to us car (with only 1 week to do it), we took a trip to Virginia to get said car and that was all in October.  I won’t bore you with the rest of the fall and beginning of winter.  Suffice it to say, I was burnt out.

But I’m back with new kit ideas.  In fact, my newest kit, “Be Still My Heart” is now in the MyMemories store and will be added to my personal store very shortly.  Here is the preview.

In addition to the main kit, there are two additional packs of backgrounds.  The first is a set of 10 polka dot backgrounds.

The next is a set of 20 plaids.

My wonderful CT has stuck with me all this time.  A few of them are currently working with this kit and I can’t wait to see what they come up with.  I’ll be sure to post the layouts when they do.

I hope that you have stuck with me too!  I hope to be posting more regularly and also hoping to offer some freebies for your patience with me.

As always, please share your layouts with me if you use any of my kits.  I really do want to see what you do!!

Keep scrappin’,
