Wow, I think this is the longest I've gone without blogging since I started back in 2007. Well, I have lots of reasons why, but I won't be able to get it all in this post, so there will be some more soon. At the end of this free graphic post are images from the Valentine swap I participated in with Janelle from the "Sweet Bee Cottage." Our host was my good friend Sandy of "521 Lakestreet," and unfortunately Janelle had some family issues that delayed my delivery in time for Valentines Day. I then got sidetracked with many activities and some family issues of our own. So anyhoo, after you scroll through the graphics, please take a moment to see what Janelle sent me. Thank you Sandy for hosting the swap, and thank you Janelle for all the goodies......I got pretty spoiled.
In other news, we had a scare with my newly pregnant daughter yesterday. She had an emergency appendectomy at the delicate stage of 13 weeks. She had been up the night before with cramping and vomiting and knew it was either the flue or something other than pregnancy issues. With her awesome hubby by her side, we rode the emotional roller coaster of getting my baby taken care of while worrying about dangers to her baby.
I know many of you out there have experienced similar situations, and very sadly worse. My prayers continue to go out to you who suffered loss. My heart was in my stomach all day yesterday, and my daughter was so brave.
Many things have been happening lately, some very emotional and others just exhausting. I'll try to let you into the exciting art adventures I've been participating in soon, as well as updates on more. Until then, God Bless you all.

There were also chocolates, but we all know that those are
the first items to be opened and disappear.
