Happy New Year!! I am BACK!! Yippee!!

Hello and Happy New Year crafty friends!! I am back!

I seriously cannot believe how long I have been gone, seems like I just blinked my eyes and my life fast forwarded 6 months! 

High school cross country is no joke and it required 100% of my time. My schedule was insane!  It was worth it, my team qualified for the Arizona State Championship and we had an amazing season! I already signed on for next year so I will be working hard to squeeze everything in!
Sadly my craft room sat dark and quiet all this time, when I finally got in there I just could not make any decisions, it was overwhelming and I missed it so much! 

I will be working to once again find a balance between my responsibilities, my jobs, running and crafty time! I have a lot of catching up to do and I have to pull a winner from my last challenge! 
The DoubleClick Skittles are still up for sale in my shop and I can't wait to dig my hands back into them! I have updated the stock and lots of colors that were not in stock are now available!! I will be closing out the special release colors (I only have 1-2 sets left!)

Thank you crafty friends for your comments and emails, I am doing great and looking forward to catching up with everyone! Winston is still fighting his Valley Fever, it has been such a sad situation to watch our puppy fight for his life. He is so loved and we are grateful for this time that we still have with him.

My resolutions/word for the year is Balance. I have written out all my goals and hope to succeed in making them happen! Leave me a comment telling me your word or your goals for 2017 and I will send a lucky winner some DoubleClick Skittles! (sorry US only due to shipping fees) but I would still love to hear your goals for 2017 if you are outside the US!

I have to give a shout out to my bestie Georgiana for encouraging me to get back to blogging!

It felt great to pull out my supplies and get crafty!

Updates, News and some Tough Decisions! DoubleClickSkittles information!

Hello Friends! It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to close down my challenges. This was a really tough decision, I didn't feel I was able to commit to the time my challenges need and didn't think it was fair to the people taking the time to enter. I have hosted over 50 challenges and LOVED every single project that was created for my challenges and have always admired all of the entries. My current challenge; stars and/or stripes will be my final challenge. I will draw the last winner soon after the challenge closes on July 5.

Thank you to all of you for making the challenges such a successful adventure! 

My life, as with most of you has its ups and downs, years begin to blur together and time becomes a precious gift. My girls are in the last few years of high school, and my time with them is becoming more and more important. I accepted a position at the high school as the girls head cross country coach. I am very excited to be starting this new adventure! 

Sometimes we have to pick and choose our hobbies even when we don't want to. I love crafting and hope to be able to craft more freely without time restrictions that the challenge schedule put on me. 

My puppy has also been recovering from Valley fever. He has permanent heart and lung damage. He has struggled with his illness and we have been taking care of him. It has been very hard on all of us, especially since we still have not recovered from loosing Kimber. My little buddy can't run with my anymore, but he still waits by my running shoes:


I will be keeping the DoubleClickSkittle line alive! I have given this adventure many years and I want to keep it up and running. I hope to get some new colors released and I have also updated my store with a shopping cart so you can now pick and choose the colors you want! 

You can check out the store HERE! 
 

Thank you all for your support and understanding!
