Where Have You Been?

Hello? Anyone out there? I am hanging my head in shame, embarrassed that I have neglected my blog so badly.  I've kind of lost my motivation to write here.  Plus I've been feeling well lately and thus keeping busy. This is what I've been doing...

1) Life is busy, y'all! I've got this going on and that. A lot of this...

(We're not sure what's going on with the youngest son's hair. Hmm, he got it cut really short, and now it's growing back STRAIGHT up. Like, not laying down, no matter how long it is growing. Any tips?)

And some of that...

2) I've been helping a good friend with a big project. That's all I can really say right now, but I will be more than excited to share it with you at a later time. :-)

3) I've been hanging out with some really cool Jr. MYF'ers from our church. Have you ever googled "MYF"? In my world, it has always meant "Mennonite Youth Fellowship," but apparently the urban definition is "miss your face." HA! That's funny, can't wait to tell the Jr. MYF'ers (who probably already know). Woot woot! That's for you, guys! 

But seriously, I am a sponsor for the middle schoolers at our church, and they are great kids (all 4 of them)! We talked about blogs at bible study last night. Good stuff.

4) It just seems strange all of a sudden that I put my life out on the world wide web (Remember when we used to call it that?). In all honesty, I never would have started a blog if I didn't have an online business. But since I do, I feel like it's necessary for me to have some way of connecting with my customers, whom I appreciate very much. :-) 

Well, it's late. Although not if you live on the west the way, I can't believe I haven't blogged about our trip out there this summer. But well, you know, I've been busy with this and that...

One more thing...happy birthday today to my amazing and dear niece Liz! You are beautiful in so many ways, both inside and out. I love you more than you know! 

In honor of Liz's birthday, take 20% off all items in my Etsy shop by using this code when you check out:  LIZ20. Yep, she's 20! 


  1. Love the shot of the boys! So, I guess it's a good thing when you don't post because you are feeling well and busy . . . and when you don't feel well you don't feel like posting, so I'm glad to now know the reason. ;-)
    You niece is beautiful!

  2. What a beauty she is! I get the too busy to blog thing! Sometimes I forget I have one anymore!:) It sounds like life is good for you!! So glad to hear that!

  3. What a beautiful girl! Unfortunately, my youngest son had the same hair issue. We just had to gel it until it was long enough to start laying down. Lesson learned here, we will no longer be buzz cutting his hair! :)

  4. Beautiful jewelry. Great work!

    With three sons who have double crowns, I understand hair angst. :) Thankfully, being boys, there's no drama/tears/hysterics about it. The crazy things are just - up there on their heads. LOL. We work around them as best we can. Best wishes on finding a solution.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. It's a pleasure to hear from you!
