The weather here hasn't been great, however, my absence the last week has been due to summer activities definitely catching up to me before I could catch up to them... lol!!! We are preparing for several reunions and a family picnic. And, already out-of-town family are making unexpected "surprise" visits. So, as far as a fun-packed summer, we're all set; as far as crafting and blogging, we have so many events it's probably going to be more of the same... lenghty absences. Fortunately, all's well and everyone is doing great! At least (for now) no drama -- thank God!!!
Although it's been great fun, I've been running around like crazy helping to get things ready/finalized for a family reunion next weekend (including getting additional port-a-pottys for our reunion... heeee-heee!) and just couldn't find the additional time to really relax to visit or do much crafting. However, I did start several projects, one of which I plan on completing as my DT project for over at Pam's on this Friday. I'm really excited about one of my projects; so far it's coming along great and I can't wait to complete it to share but it's going to take a bit longer depending on my schedule. I also have a couple of quick jewelry projects I'd like to share with you, hopefully, in a couple of days. Anyway, I've been trying to "sneak" in a bit of crafting here and there but it's just that there are so many other wonderfully "summer" busy things to do, I just haven't completed any of the projects I've started!!!
In the meantime, I promised you I was getting another little blog candy package together -- which I am and haven't forgotten; but in the interim because I want you to know that no matter where I am and what I'm doing, I think about you, and now I'd like to offer this little token of appreciation for your being the best family-friends in blogland:
I couldn't resist how the paper and flowers matched so perfectly, so I knew one of you lucky enough to receive this would love it too! Just leave me a comment on this post and random.org will select a recipient. This is open to everyone, and I'll announce the winner tomorrow (Thursday) before 5 p.m. central time.As I had my poor sweet Sandy so worried about me, I mentioned to her that I was going to leave somewhat of an itinerary for you just so you'll know where I am if/when I'm not posting. When I left you "hanging: last week it was because I'd totally forgotten about some planning obligations -- which is why I said summer activities caught up with me. With all the drama I've had lately, I wouldn't want to worry anyone else, and for now I'm happy and enjoying life! In the event it becomes difficult for me to get to you, here're some of what my plans are so far:
- Family reunion # (mine) 1, June 24-26
- Family 4th of July Picnic, July 3
- Family renuion #2 (hubby's), July 7 - 10. As this reunion will be held in Atlanta, GA., we will be leaving on July 6 and not returning until July 11 or 12.
I've dropped in on some of you and although I don't want to make any solid commitments (life's been too full of surprises for me to make any commitments right now) but I'll be around to see to those of you I haven't as soon as I can! So, good luck on the "sweet" little candy gift.
Thanks always for stopping by, hugs and I'll be seeing you!
