I found this image in a google search and it made me laugh...another blogger used it for the same kind of "Sorry I Dropped Off The Radar" post that I'm about to do. Great blogger minds think alike?? (Thank you to Jay Garrett on GadgetyNews.com for the image and the laugh!)
So, yes, I've been a slacker blogger, but not without good reason...isn't there always a good reason? I went on vacation! Isn't that the best reason of all? I took a two week road trip with my cute little family in our new VW Vanagon...well, new to us...Bob is 30 years old, after all. Yes, we did name our van Bob. I wanted to name her Charlotte, but after driving her once, I decided she was most definitely a HE. So Bob's Your Uncle! I ended up naming the sewing beast Charlotte instead. (In case you missed my FB rants a few weeks back, I was sewing curtains for Bob using my husband's grandmother's (grandmother-in-law??) sewing machine...a vintage (obviously) Singer Featherweight. Quite a beauty, but all sewing machines are beasts in my mind...I have a true love/hate relationship with all of them...but that is another story all together.
So back to my slackery...I am so sorry to keep you waiting on the edges of your seats for this most dazzly of "I'm Back!" posts. I have lots of great stuff planned to post...whether or not most of it is ever released to the blogosphere at large is anyone's guess. I can tell you that my very next post will be a printable PDF of the Thank You card I did for my daughter's teachers at last year's Oh, The Places You'll Go graduation party. I've had so many requests for it, that I'm going to make it available to anyone who wants to print it out for their teachers, because they damn well deserve our recognition and undying appreciation. And if anyone cries more than I did reading it out loud in front of 70+ people, I'll send you a cookie. (I have video to prove it, so you'll have to share yours first...LOL.)
And with that, I will wrap this up and get off my slackery blogger butt to start working on my next post. And P.S. I just re-opened my Etsy shop yesterday too, so if there is anything you are looking for or wanting designed, let me know. I do graduation invitations, announcements and pretty much anything you're willing to pay me to design, so don't be scared of all the gorgeous vintage jewelry and accessories and custom wedding stuff in my shop if you're not planning a wedding. ;)
Thanks for breathlessly waiting my return! I appreciate your undying loyalty! If you want to stay more reasonably caught up, try following me in one of my other online hangouts:
