Playing Catch-Up

It's been a while and I have so much to catch up on! But for the last four days, I've been thoroughly enjoying being home and on break, and I couldn't bring myself to do anything responsible, haha. Now it's time to whip my internet life into shape and get back into the swing of things! I have some major plans for the next few weeks (I don't go back to school until the 23rd or so), and I doubtlessly will run out of time to execute them all, but hopefully I'll be able to surprise you guys with some special stuff to make up for my absences this fall.

How was your Christmas? I hope you all had a lovely day spent with your families. I certainly did! I think my favorite part of the day was after all the festivities and eating and extended family visiting and such. My parents, my brother and I all sat down, and after a devotion, we listened to Loreena McKennitt's latest Christmas album and were just together. My mom was sitting at her spinning wheel, I was sketching, and we finally got to spend some quality family time. That sounds so tame, but it was really the best of times.

  1. so glad to hear from you and hope you get all your wonderful ideas finished. you should show some of your sketches, I bet they are awesome!

  2. We thought we'd be spending Christmas as a couple in Kansas City, but we ended up moving back to Indiana a week early and spent the holidays with my husband's relatives. It was so nice to be with family, surrounded with Christmas decor and yummy food instead of by ourselves.

    I also don't return to school (last semester, yay!) until the end of January, and I have so many plans for things to make in the meantime. I always have more ideas than time to make those ideas happen, so I know exactly what you mean. Best of luck in your creative endeavors!

  3. Ruth - Thank you! Aw. I'm still learning to draw, but I'll for sure scan some in!

    Amber - Oh, I'm so glad you got to be with family for the holiday! That's so important. & congratulations on being nearly done with school! Hope you get at least a portion of your projects completed... that's my goal, anyway!


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
