It has been far toooooo long since I have written on my blog. I apologize for my lack of blogs these past months.
It has been a busy and hectic few months, but I am hoping that we are now settling back into a routine and fall schedule and that I can get back to keeping in touch with you and to my video tutorials.
In June, my computer crashed – taking with it my tutorial programs, completed tutorials, pictures of finished projects, blogs and much much more! I was devastated! I backed up things as I began having problems, but I still haven’t been able to find all of my programs and/or content. But I believe I am back to a place where I can begin moving forward again. I spent long hours trying to retrieve lost information. Today I received help from HostGator.com and they now have me up and going again!

Our son, Steven, is now in China to begin his new adventure! He will be teaching English to 3 – 7 year olds. His main reason for traveling to China is to meet and get acquainted with his beloved, Jiaxuan’s family. She is a sweetheart and we dearly love her. She and Steven worked together for a year at the YMCA of the Rockies. She has been back in China for a year and now Steven is there learning about her family, her culture and those things that are important to her and her family. I am so excited for them both! However, getting him on the plane was quite an experience! There were detours at every turn! Each time we thought he had all of his paperwork in order; some new curve was thrown into the mix! But he has safely arrived in China and is with Jiaxuan and her family. He has been training for his job and will begin teaching in just one short week.
Over the next weeks, I will show you some of the cards and other projects I have made this summer. Some of these projects are with retired product – I apologize for that, but will share them because you may also have some of the same retired product – OR – my project may spark a creative moment for you the product you have on hand.
I participated in the Farmer’s Market in Goldendale this summer. It was each Saturday May through September. I found I really enjoyed the experience and already look forward to next summer. The good news, I have 7 months to prepare this time! Since I started late this year, I felt like I was constantly playing “catch up”. Each week I had to re-stock what I sold so each week was so busy, busy, busy getting ready for the next Saturday. Now I am looking forward and planning ahead.
I will be sharing some of my Farmer’s Markets projects with you in the weeks to come!
