dear readers,

{digi mask by katie Pertiet of}

If you’re looking at the above photo and thinking “how cute! E is sorting buttons while the dog sleeps next to her, aww” well, yes, that’s true but you’re missing the bigger picture here.

I’m swamped.

Button sorting is one of my simple pleasures, and I’m bribing Elizabeth to do it for me because the week has been that busy. INSANE.

Now I’m not going to do that blogger cop-out and tell you busy is why I’ve not been posting. Though I will apologize for my absence and tell you the reason- I chose sleep. I’ve gone to bed before 10pm every night. I’m exhausted by the end of the day and when asked “stay up 30more min and blog, or sleep now?” I chose sleep. Every time.

Am I sorry? Well of course I feel bad that you visit my blog and there’s nothing new here. But it had to be done. I’ll spare you the minutia of my week – just know it’s been a hum-dinger with a load more today and tomorrow. Imagine huge work deadlines mixed with loads of personal appointments and obligations combined with adopting a new dog (who had worst timing to enter our lives but is worth it).

Come Monday? I’m back to blogging business as usual. Better than usual really because I’ve got some surprises, prizes, sneak peeks, and more. I hope you stay tuned-

  3. Glad you chose the sleep too! Although I always learn from your creative heart-I with stick to using my imagination when visualizing what those “May-embellished Toothpicks” would look like that you had to use to prop open your eyes 🙂 Blessings on your busy, busy weekend.

  5. No worries. Take care of yourself. We don’t need a post everyday so don’t feel like you need to. You have a real life, much more important than the virtual one. I am enjoying the Hybrid class!

    I love your posts and visit your site regularly to energize. I am always amazed at what your creative self inspires me to do!
    Take care and snooze when you can!
