3 Good Reasons for being AWOL
{and LOOK at what is coming my way SOON!}

Being absent from my blog for too long always makes me feel antsy!  
I kinda feel like I have an obligation to share, but in a good way that is.  

Well I have nothing new to share this week nor have I created anything! 
 But for very good reason!!  No.  1 :-

My babies are home for the holidays!
  They are on vacation from university & I haven't seen them since my 
daughter's graduation (yes she is a post-grad student now can you believe it?!) 
so I am relishing every moment with these "little ones"!  
Aged 21 & 19....ahem...

Reason 2 :-

I am sorting out my scraproom!!  NIGHTMARE!!!
But the good news is that I have already sold off enough stash to buy the complete
set of these beauties!!  You can read all about them HERE & see more lovely
images of them too!  I cannot WAIT for them to arrive!! 

So I have been hard at work every evening this week packing up orders 
& sending out goodies to homes where they will be well used & well loved. 

Reason 3:-

I have a top secret new venture underway!!
I know, I know, it's mean of me to give you a tidbit & not share the whole
story but you know how these things are...It's just not possible, but I 
really suck at keeping secrets.  All I can say is that I am excited about it
& it's a new venture/undertaking that will be a bit like this...

I always think that it is worth saying something or doing something if you think 
that things could be better.  Not as a way of criticizing but as a genuine way 
of helping to implement CHANGE.  Because really, that is how change happens. 

 It's not one big thing, it's a series of little things, and I am committed to it in all
 aspects of my life, irrespective of whether I am rewarded financially for it or not.

So that is it folks!  I am still very much alive & kicking away wildly over here!!
I will be back as soon as I have something else worth sharing :)  Keep well xo

Your children will always be the very best reason to be AWOL from your blog ;-) I am super excited to see what reason 3 is going to turn out to be.

You will LOVE your new Color Mists, just be careful when you first use them. Give them a good shake and never forget to tap the nozzle before spraying. It comes out in a gush, so a light press on the handle. Very good coverage, dilute with water if you're after Tattered Angels sheerness. Happy spraying! aaaand cannot wait to hear your happy news!! xoxoxo
