Happy New Year and so glad to be back! I bet alot of you are wondering where I've been and what I 've been up to!?!? Well to tell you the truth~ A whole lot! I had to get off the crepe carousel for a moment to catch my breath and deal with alot of life's little jabs. I recently received a note from someone near and dear who was wondering if I was OK and my whereabouts? I had to stop for a moment and remember that I forgot all about the colorful things that made me tick in my crepe world like my art, my blog, and the most important you! Most of you know I normally don't post my daily happening with my personal life (family) but I felt that this post is important and necessary. I would like to share with you some very life changing events that may reflect in my work and hopefully shows my growth as an artist, writer, designer and most of all as a person.
First, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, stage I. She had a double mastectomy and is now cancer free. She was lucky and we were Thankful! I love you mom! Second, my daughter has been experiencing difficulties in school and were left to home schooling~rough endeavor, hats off to all those moms and dads who can do it~ she is now back in school and this too is a rough road we're traveling. I love you Kendall! Third, my children are very lucky little people and have the pleasure of being able to experience life with their great grandparents , however their drastic decline in health and emotional state has brought us to a point of placing them in a nursing facility and this has been very hard on us all. They are very special to all of us and we pray for them each and every day. Last, the flu has hit our family hard, whatever this particular strain is comprised of, it was highly contagious and super icky! It started with my four year old worked it's way to my husband then to each one of my five children and then of course, ME! ugh......sadly it turned into a sinus infection and now is lingerly like a old cold gone bad! So believe it or not, all this has transpired during these past two months of my bloglandia absence! Ooohh woe is me!!!
BUT!!!!! I won't let any of this get me down........I had much time to reflect and appropriate... not appreciate but appropriate, appropriate my all of this energy to bigger and better things for the new year!
I thought long and hard about my web cam and the possibilities of using it to teach you the ins and outs of creping. Sounds exciting, huh? All I have to do is figure out how it all works and I think I shall have a go at it! ahhhh, sounds like something to tune in for! I have begun to get ready for Valentine's day, one of my favorite times of the year! LOVE, oh how I LOVE LOVE!
Oh, I love my hunky husband especially, tee hee!
I hope this explains alot of my absence and I apologize for any voids I may have caused but I do look forward to the new year, new crepe creations and most of all, thank you for listening and caring!
