Absent like whoa!
I am decidedly embarrassed that it has been almost a year since I last posted. A great deal has happened, then unhappened, then new things happened. I know that makes no sense but I doubt you really want a play-by-play of my year! The important thing is that I am *almost* at my final destination — January 24 my husband moves from Australia to the USA (remember how I was moving there instead? Didn’t work out for a variety of reasons although I did live there for a big chunk of 2011), and then when he finds a job we’ll be settling down for a good, lonnnnng time.
This means that the Sword of Damocles is almost gone above my head. I know what is going to be happening in my life, more than in the past two and a half years of trying to get a country we are both allowed to be in but which has better weather for my health than the UK. Now I can breathe again, and start taking my life off of the HOLD it’s been on for too long.
I’m going to start with this blog. Obviously, I don’t expect you to believe me, as I was saying the same thing almost a year ago. But I am posting this for myself. I’ve been crafting up a storm lately and have many things I am willing to show you. I’m going to start photographing again by the end of the week.
If you have hung in with me this long and want a holiday card, I’m getting ready to send them out. It’s my first foray in digital card making and I had a lot of help from a digi kit but I hope it may still make some people smile. Just send me your address using the contact form and I shall send you a card. If I run out of the digital prints I may even make some by hand! (I did make 25 for my mother, just need to photograph the leftovers I still have on hand.)
Thanks for everyone’s support over the past year and a big shootout to my Twitter peeps who have kept me mostly sane.
Obligatory photo: While in Australia, I started teaching my nieces how to crochet and loom knit. And looked silly in the process.
