It’s been awhile. You probably thought I fell off the face of this earth…but alas, I did not. I just needed a little break to deal with other things in my life.
I spent most of February house-sitting for a friend, thinking it was perfect timing. Winter in Illinois. Her house is 4 minutes from where I work. Mine is 65 minutes. I assumed I’d be avoiding many days of icy roads. As it turned out we only had 2 days of snow during the entire time…and both of those times the snow disappeared almost as quickly as it came. But it was still a nice break from my usual daily commute.
Staying somewhere else also made scrapbooking a challenge. I tried to take a bunch of my stuff with me, but you know how it is…you never have everything you need. My studio at home is 12’x11’ and I use every inch of it. There, I was “working out of a box”. The biggest obstacle though was the fact that I had no internet access! Ouch! Thank God for my iPhone or I would have been totally out of touch.
Gotta love the irony of it all though….February was the busiest my business has been in a long time. Lots of orders coming from several different venues. Which is why my shop has been a bit…well, shall we say…on the empty side lately. I’m trying to fix that though. Four new items were listed today and more to come this week. Here’s a little preview of what’s new…
