OK enough...

...already!!!  I've been gone for a LOOOOONG time and even though I try not to worry about what people think, I have been wondering.  You all matter to me.  Especially those of you who have emailed, CALLED and left messages on SB.com and Facebook screaming WHERE ARE YOU???  I didn't want to disappoint you but I did anyway.  I really started experiencing something at the end of last year that I can't explain.  I had to step back from everything and get my mind right.  If it wasn't for God and my husband I really think I would be in St. Gabriel right now.  But I'm getting better and I thought I would just jump back into things...I THOUGHT.  The devil starts creeping around and telling you that things won't be the same...that no one is paying attention anymore.  And that really started to gnaw at me and, even when I was ready to return...after I promised my girls that I would...I still didn't.  I know I've angered some people because my sabbatical included not sending some packages out on time.  But I had to tell myself: all I can do is apologize and DO BETTER.  So after I uploaded my assignment for SOC tonight I decided to just DO IT...type a quick blog post and go to sleep.  Tomorrow  I'll see if there are welcomes or a lynch mob.  But for tonight, I'm kinda glad to be back!!!

Arms wide open sending you a cyber-hug!!! I have missed your blogging and kreating so much, but totally understand that God, family, and health and well-being take a front seat to everything else! The world would be a much better place if more people realized that. Happy you're back and sending hugs and prayers your way!

It is sooooo good to hear from you girlie! :) I'm glad to see you and hear from you! but I'm more glad that you know what's most important! I've been there....last time we talked I felt that maybe you were getting a bit over-extended...I've been there. and when it stops being fun....you have to re-align those planets! :) and remember why you started doing it in the first place! You owe us no explanation!!! We love you!

Welcome back! No need to apologize for anything. You need to do what's good for YOU. If it means taking time for yourself, then the people who care about you should understand.
Blessings and hugs to you, my sister!

I am definitely glad to see you're jumping back into things. I've been wondering where you've been and what's been going on. And no need to explain anything. I can soooo relate to taking a breather and stepping away. I've done it. Heck... in a way, I'm still doing it. I don't think I've touched my blog or gallery in months. I think it's inevitable for all of us. Over time, we reevaluate what's more important to us. Glad to see you back though. I've missed seeing you and your amazing style and creativity around. Take care of yourself - you're one amazing person and you know that I love you. :)

I think I can honestly say that we women juggle entirely too many things and people think we are Wonder Woman..so when a break is needed, at least you were smart enough to step back and do what was best for YOU...I'd rather somebody give me 100% some of the time then 50% all of the time if that makes sense....we missed you and were worried and are jsut glad you are slowly making your way back to blogland...go catch up your etsy orders and then show us some new fab creations girly!!

I seriously SERIOUSLY missed your blog posts and projects gurl. I needed the voice- the laughs- the fabulously simple and original takes on everything you do.
I was worried about you because you are always so prolific and open- I thought the worst! I am looking forward to all your new stuff and yes- I completely understand the need to get away and regroup- that's what all great artists do.
