Dearest followers and friends,
I am sorry for the long pause between posts.

Things have been unusually busy
 in my little corner of the world.

Creative endeavors always seem to take a back burner
to making sure stockings are filled and presents are wrapped.

Especially when trying to fit it all in between the end of the workday 
and bedtime stories.

And getting the week off of work between
Christmas and New Year's Day 
does make me quite happy  :-)

I intend to use it well with a few large beautification
projects around my house.  

I will post my accomplishments.

May this week before Christmas
nourish your soul and fill your life with happiness
-wherever you may be-
