PLEASE EXCUSE MY ABSENCE...

Hello everyone.  I've prayed, and hope, all's been well in blogland; and although I sincerely hope it not to be so but to anyone, the families and/or friends who might have possibly been affected by Hurricane Sandy, my thoughts and prayers have went out to you and are with you yet.

I apologize for my absence without an explanation until now.  However, my family is going through a very trying and troubling time which has left me with no time for anything other than dealing with first things first priorities  Unfortunately, although things are looking ahead, we still have a way to go.  Because of this, I haven't been nor am I  able to do any crafting at this time and/or the probability to give much attention to my blog for at least the next several weeks to come -- I'll just have to see how things go from this point on.  I trust you'll all understand and know I'll be back to you just as soon as time/situation allows.

Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to read/respond to post comments or emails but will, again, time permitting.  With regard to my kitchen, it is now complete and I'll post pictures when I can.

Please know I love you all and keep you in my thoughts, and I'll be back with you once things have settled.

I appreciate all the prayers and they are returned tri-fold.  I miss you much and look forward to being back with you all very soon.

Love you, hugs, and...

I'll be seeing you.
