I just wanted to let you all (I know a few people read this!!) that I'm still here... just trying to get healthy again after a wicked cold that's still lingering after two weeks, and keep my head above water getting everything done for Christmas. That wasn't much, actually, in the grand scheme of things- we're staying here for Christmas, so we needed to get our presents wrapped and sent off to the Midwest. I did work on a couple crafty things (that I can't show till after Christmas), but other than that, haven't done much crafting... it was a hard decision, but I finally decided that I wasn't even going to make the Christmas cards this year. I've made my cards for YEARS, and it was difficult to admit that I wouldn't get them done, but for some reason this year it just felt like a chore, not a fun, creative process, like it should be. Not sure what it is- the cold, the overtime I've been working at work, or having to put Cleo to sleep, but something has been sapping my creativity this season... I'm still reading blogs, checking out Flickr, and browsing the Etsy forums, but not doing much myself. I'm taking some time off from work over Christmas, so hopefully I can get in my craft room, do some cleaning, and then get back into a crafty mood. Until then, please excuse my absences and the sporadic posting!
