Blogging Time

Wow! Finding time to blog is a lot more difficult than I remember. I really want to get back on here regularly. I need to figure out how to incorporate it into my daily life. Anyone out there have suggestions? I am always coming up things I could post about but never get to it.

I am in a Spring Basket Swap. I am really excited about. I saw it last year and wished I had been in it. I'll post a link to it along with pictures of the baskets I make and receive.

Have a Blessed Day!

hugs, Ellen

Where Have I Been Hiding?

I have been missing my blog, along with all the friends I made. Life had just been so crazy that I had to put blogging and my sewing aside. I now live in California. My husband, our two little girls, and I drove across country from Connecticut and arrived here this past June. To say we downsized would be an understatement. We had a two day estate sale and sold everything that wouldn't fit into a 5' x 8' UHAUL. Let me tell you that was hard! Most of my antique and vintage treasures are gone along with family pieces. I am still getting use to living in a small two bedroom apartment after living in a five bedroom house. But, I really wanted to live closer to my sister and brother and their families. Plus, who can't deny the Cali weather. I am glad I am here right now instead of in CT. My husbands parents reported that there is nowhere to put the snow. My brother in New York and my parents in New Jersey say the same thing. Shorts and flip flops in January....CRAZY!

I am getting the creative itch and am getting ready to start setting up a crafting corner our apartment. I really miss my crafting studio on the third floor in my former house, but I will make do. Sewing and crafting really made me happy and I look forward to getting back to it. I miss selling my handmade pretties and vintage goodies on etsy. So keep watching. I will be posting new items that I will be putting in my etsy shop in about a month.

I am glad to be back and look forward to reconnecting with you all.
