Here We Go...Update Time

 Please don't forget to visit and link to Creative Things Thursday

So I do believe I owe it to everyone to explain where I have been....
It has been a REALLY rough few months for me, so without going into too much detail, all of the stress has caused several health issues and depression which I am trying to bounce back from.

Two more of my pretty girls were snagged by coyotes which has broken my heart.

I have started back on a few projects slowly but surely, I am trying to get back to my healthy self with my peaceful mind.

My ex husband moved back into the craft room which means it has gone back to being a guest room. So all of my crafting things have been shoved to a tight little corner where I can't get to most of it. 
*Sad face*

I am currently working on both of my daughters rooms. 

This is about as far as I have gotten and taken photos of thus far. I promise a big reveal hopefully some time soon!!

I had plans to create my own magazine, but once everything started taking it's toll on me I just couldn't get the energy up to put my all into it that I felt it deserved. So for now I am letting that go, but I do hope to get back to it at some point. I still feel that there are so many of you that do so much and do it so well that you deserve to be featured in a magazine! ♥ 

We had snow dumped on us this morning...

How is the weather in your neck of the woods?

Also last but not least, I am planning a rather large indoor yard sale {SERIOUS need of downsizing around here} so if you are local and interested in coming please email me at for more info!!
