Welcome Back!!!

Hey there! Are you out there, at all?? I am back.... 

Lots has happened in the last year and a half. First off, I had another baby. That's right. I now have 4 boys. I think some of you were here for that. I think I was, right?
Baby was born Sept. 2011. It was all I could do to keep going until it happened and then two months later, we moved to Singapore.
Yes, you heard me. Singapore. As in, Southeast Asia. We have been here for almost a year, and I tell you what, my head is still swimming. 

But I did get a bit of a craft space carved out of our EXTREMELY tiny apartment though. And somehow I have managed to level off my hormones to the point where I can actual DO some crafting!
Don't get me wrong, I love babies, and having babies and all my babies, but WHEW! Its about time I get to feeling normal again. 

So without further ado, here is my first card after 18 months:
Sending you a Happy (and crafty!) Hello!
(please ignore the extremely ugly green cutting mat. Still trying to figure out how to photograph these things in this EXTREMELY tiny apartment. Plus my new camera after leaving my old camera in a cab the second week we were in country. Oh, how I cried then.)

Now, I am not vain enough to think that people are out there just waiting for me to get back into the crafting game. Indeed, unless you are doing this professionally, its impossible to have people stopping in here everyday. But let's be honest. I'm doing this more for me, right?  But I would love to have some friends along for the ride, if you are out there looking for some crafting inspiration.

Now that I am feeling a bit more on my feet, I am getting to know Singapore and its crafting scene. So far, I'm just on the outskirts but I hope to get to see and do more here. There are some local craft stores that might have some space for a little western girl and her craft supplies. Maybe I will try to teach a few classes? 

Regardless, I will be logging onto the ol' blog here and updating as regularly as I can.
I have been feverishly preparing Christmas cards and ornaments for my tree. So stay tuned. I am going to be decorating my house right after Thanksgiving (which is just a regular thursday here) and then I will share pictures after that. So make a visit in a week or so if you want to get into the Christmas spirit.

Until then, if you are indeed out there, please stop by to say Hello! I hope all my blogging pals are still alive, well and crafting like banshees.

Happy Crafting Hello.... See you soon ; )

Wow, was I surprised to see your blog name pop up to the top of my list. Welcome back. You have been missed.

Singapore..what an enormous change and with 4 boys in tow. You must be a dynamo to even think about crafting again.

Lovely card and looking forward to hearing about your new life and crafting.
