Hello my crafty friends! Long time no craft! It has been far too long since I have posted on my blog and I have missed it. This past year I have experienced so many ups and downs, challenges and changes and found myself on a path to minimalism and it has changed my world. With less stuff, less aggravation, less of the activities that I was participating in that did not bring me happiness, I now find myself with bits of free time to pursue the things that make me happy. With all that life handed me this past year it wasn't easy for me to find my way back to crafting. I feel like I am not the same person I was a year ago and struggled feeling comfortable back in my craft room. I had to actually dust off my equipment!
I have missed you all so much and I cannot wait to catch up with all my blogging friends!

Hey Carri~ OMGosh it was like forever since I last connected with you. All is good here, I just need to get over re-organizing this cave mess and get into my room where I can be more comfortable. Glad you stop by, missed you too. Love your pretty project those lashes are styling and to dye for. LOL! Will try to be back again, I'm sort of laying back from blogland until I can get my crap straighten out. Take care!ReplyDelete

So sorry Julie, thinking about youDelete
Hi! Welcome back! I was thinking about your skittles the other day. Glad you are back to doing a little crafting. I too had to slow way down at the end of last year. The things posting to my blog this year are all made from earlier in 2018. I think I've only actually crafted 1 thing so far this year. So I totally get what you are saying. Big hugs to you!!ReplyDelete

Hi Carri! So happy you are back. I have come by your blog a couple of times while you were gone, I wondered where you were. Life can be so complicated, it has a way of turning your world upside down when you least expect it. I think our struggles are there to change us and put us on the right path.ReplyDelete
This card is super cute!
Hello Miss Carri...so happy to see you back in blog world, you have been missed! I totally understand that at times you need a break and regroup! Your card is simply adorable, so happy you had a some free time to play again! Sending hugs your way.ReplyDelete
Welcome back Carri!!!! I so understand what you mean, I too have had a hard time with being crafty since my husband passed in 2015. I do it here and there as it strikes me. I also have been cleaning out and trying to go more minimalist. Just need to clear the clutter in my life! Nope, I'm not the same person either-things have a way of changing you don't they?! So happy to have you back though. Loving your first project too, how cute is this card?!! Sure to put a smile on someone's face for their birthday! Hugs, BrendaReplyDelete
Welcome back, Carri! I would normally say I'm sorry that you have been through trials and tribulations last year, but you sound so charged up and positive that it has to have been a good year in the end! I don't know why we have to go through the fires to find enlightenment, but there you go! I look forward to seeing more of you!! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
