It’s been awhile. Thank you for all the kind comments on my last post about being in Artful Blogging. With vacation and coming back to reality I didn’t get to respond to everyone’s comments…but I did see lots of new names and visited lots of new blogs. I haven’t made it through all of Artful Blogging myself yet (I like to take my time and savor each issue) but I’ll tell you, the pieces I’ve read have all spoken to me in some way. It’s amazing how each issues seems to have bloggers that have a similar style and feeling to their pieces, it never feels disjointed and I love connecting with other blogs that resonate so strongly with me.
I haven’t gotten to do any sewing since we’ve been back, but I did get a few pictures edited. It’s taken me longer than usual to get to them, usually getting to just one a day, and sometimes not even feeling it’s worthy of posting. I love having photos to edit at my leisure, so I’m sure I’ll be working on them for months to come. I found a really great landscape photography book last week and I think I’ll share about it in the coming weeks.
Brice’s birthday was yesterday. I officially have a 3 year old on my hands. Tantrums and all. He’s taken to screaming at the top of his lungs when he doesn’t get his way. I just calmly pick him up and deposit him in his room when he does this. I honestly don’t know another way to deal with it. He’s taking lots of time out’s and having to do lots of apologizing.
In other news, we have a new puppy around. He’s wonderful! I’ll let you read more about the situation over here. We should return to our regular crafting goodness soon…once I feel I have a chance to breath a little.
