I'm Back Up and Running!!!

I'm so happy to be back!! I have missed everyone very much and I've missed not being able to sign in and go blog visiting any time I wanted to!

While away from the computer, I did a little organizing and cleaning out of my craft room. I came across a large fabric scrap that I had left over from a laundry bag that I made awhile back so I decided to make a new library/market tote for myself. My old canvas bag that I always used for hauling books back and forth to the library was getting so worn so I decided to make another instead of buying one. This was the perfect solution!!
I think it'll do for the upcoming summer farmer's markets too!

On another note...
I have been doing some serious thinking these past couple of months and have decided to start something new and exciting. I can't wait to reveal what I've been working on so stay tuned!! As I get closer to completion, I will give you all of the exciting details so please be sure to stop by and visit often!!
~~ I'm thinking sometime next week (wink, wink) ~~

Until then, xoxoxo and I thank you all for your warm, thoughtful comments while I was away! I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely Spring weather and all of those pretty flowers starting to pop up everywhere!

God Bless,

Hi Kathleen, this is my first visit here. You have a lovely blog. I love the dandelions in the mason jar. It never occurred to me to actually treat them as flowers. I'm 51 and look what I have been missing! I'm going right out and pick some! Blessings, Celene

I just went through the same thing. My kids have myspace and I think that is where our troubles come from.

That canvas bag you made it perfect! I love the color and who could not ever love roses. I will look forward to what you will be up to.

I look forward to seeing what you are working on. I just got my own bouquet of dandelions from my little girl:-)
