I am BACK....


Have you missed me because I sure have missed YOU. It has been way too long since I have had the enjoyment of crafting. I have to admit I colored this image three times before feeling happy about it. I was a little rusty but I guess that is what 7 months will do to you.

Well today I am getting crafty with Concord & 9th: Hello Lovely Stamp Set and Technique Tuesday.
Which can be purchased at

I colored this gorgeous image with Copic markers.

If you are a little behind I will catch you up. I left Colorado and moved back to California. We are so happy to be back. I thought we would find a home right away when we moved here but it was really hard. Most of the homes here are old and need work. Some need ALOT of work and my husband and I just did not have the time or energy. We fell in love with a home that did need some work and we bought it. We have been here for 30 days now and we have since redone all the flooring, painted every room and ordered a new kitchen. The kitchen just came yesterday so we have some more work to do. Once this is done we get to enjoy our home. God has blessed us in so many ways we are just so grateful. 

I know it has been a long time but I hope you all are still following me. I look forward to stopping by your blogs and leaving you some Bloggy love. 

So happy to be back to the normal.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Crafting.
