I am back!!

You know Christmas time is so busy with work and business and family....I needed to take some time off. I know that I have been a bad blogger lately. I am sorry. I do appreciate you coming back again and again to see "what's new".

So "what have I been up too?" you ask....well, just before Christmas I have an uncle pass away suddenly, my Mom's oldest was a shock. (Rest in peace Uncle Wayne.) His family decided to wait until after Christmas to the "visitation" and all that. So things got busy. It was really nice to see all the family, just not the kind of circumstances you want to bring us all together though, you know what I mean.  My Mom's side of the family used to get together every Christmas....then kids grow and get their own lives and it becomes this incredible feat to organize and synchronize everyone for the holidays. Like I said it was really nice to get everyone together.

Then my Dad's oldest sister and husband came to visit for a couple days...lots more visiting there!!  My Husbands brother and wife were also in town for the hanging out with them. We have this tradition of going bowling on New Years Eve day....lots of laughs! And very sore muscles the next day...have you ever heard of "Bowlers Bum"? Well I always get it when I bowl...unless I am bowling in a league and bowl every week! (which I haven;t done in a couple of years).

Then came New Years Eve....we spent with the kids at their Godparents house with all of their kids to play was a great time for everyone!

So now we are up to the kids going back to school... : (   They were so good over the Holidays and I really miss them when they are at school. But I was happy to get the house back in order....tree down and decoration put away for another year. I took the whole week to just clean at a leisurely pace. And keep it that way!

In all of this cleaning though, I realized I was avoiding my studio. I was not feeling creative one bit. I lost my mojo. Sad. It makes makes me very sad to loss my mojo. But guess what...I found it was hiding in a stamp set called BRING ON THE CAKE (from the New Occasions Mini). I made a couple of cards....then I moved on to another stamp set called BLISS (from the Sale-a-bration Mini). I am excited to share these cards with you...just one of them the others for throughout the week, just in case my mojo hides again. Hee, hee. I will also get the Occasions Mini linky thingy put on my blog here to so that you can browse though it.

Sorry for rambling. Here`s my card. This one is for an upcoming Birthday Card Stamp-a-Stack....

My masculine Birthday card. Hope that you like it!!

See you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping in!
