I've been MIA for awhile....but you've GOT to understand....I SWEAR I've been busier than a one-armed paper hanger!

**NOTE** When grandma and grandpa used those sayings, they gave a really good mind visual as to how busy they were. Today, it just sounds so....well...crass? Wow. It's a REALLY good thing I don't give a rat's behind about being PC, huh??

When I began crafting in December of 2012, I had no idea I'd be sitting here, 2 years later, covered in sawdust from my Dremel and bereft of my gel tips (because I kept knocking the &*&% things off while messing around with chipboard and metal) and whining...I mean, 'blogging', about being busier than an "upper extremity/phalanges" challenged person.


If you don't believe me, check out my pinterest. Here!!! Here it is!!! Just look! LOOK, I SAID!


You'll see all sorts of things I've created since October that aren't here on the ol' blawg! Why is that, you ask?

Because the majority of my creations have been as a member of the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen design team, all all the info/tutorials, etc. are for Splitcoast fan club members! That's right...the people that pony up a WHOLE TWENTY_FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR to have access to all sorts of awesome tutorials, templates, sneak-peeks, special challenges and everything a growing artist will ever need.

When I joined Splitcoaststampers.com 2 years ago, I immediately joined up. The main reason was because it's a place where a whole lot of talented people were available to help me grow as an artist and, while SCS is free to anyone, that 25 bucks I paid was a commitment to ME. To MY growth as an artist and MY commitment to art. Besides, it was a small amount to pay to support a site that gives more tutorials and support than thousands of dollars in art classes. Seriously. If you don't believe me, just sign up for free and check it out.

Now, while 99% of the other girls have the wherewithal to juggle DT duties, their blawgs and other challenges, yours truly isn't quite that talented. Coming up with and putting together six projects in 3 weeks (before having all of 5 or 6 days before the new theme and it starts all over) is one of the most demanding DT requirements I've seen. And I love every minute!!!!

My projects are pretty time-consuming (as you will see when you GO TO MY PINTEREST ACCT!) and until my stint is up in March (I swear...this 6 months has flown by) I may just pop in here and there to say hi, OR-if I'm lucky enough to be chosen for another DT, I can resume regular posting since my DD days are coming to an end) but don't think for one second I've gone anywhere.

Whew. I feel so much better now that we've had this talk!!! I'm sure that you feel the same. All 5 of you.

I'll sign off now so you can GO TO MY PINTEREST ACCOUNT, which I'm SURE you've been dying to see. And if you haven't, just keep that to yourself and let me wallow in my normal, delusional state. MWAAAAAAH!
