Dying for a new post?

This summer before I went on vacation I was frantically trying to get posts ready for when I was going to be gone. My mom asked me why I was doing that. She said "No one will die if you don't post for a week." But I didn't believe it. I kind of thought you might die. Or maybe I thought I might. =)

But then this fall hit and it might be a bit of an understatement that I was quite overwhelmed keeping up with it all. I kept repeating to myself "No one will die if I don't blog." Turns out I didn't die and neither did you. I lost a few readers, but I'm okay with that. Hopefully some day they'll come back. I am hoping in the new year to have a little more time to hang out on here since I am cutting way back on business. Hoping to spend some more time with my fam, a little more time sleeping, and a little time learning to play the guitar I got for Christmas. I'm hoping for a little more relaxed 2010...knowing you will be here when I write but won't die if I don't!

This is a little late, but that seems to be just my speed these days...

Avery's birthday party is this weekend. Lots to make...lots to clean...lots to blog! Be back tomorrow!

I can completely relate! It's so hard to do everything! Now that people can follow, I doubt you lost any readers!

I love your Christmas card!

Welcome back and bring on the parties! Carson and I were just talking about a baseball party in June! I can't wait! I still want you to make zebra cupcake picks for Kam's birthday in August too!

Hope you have a great week!

I know the feeling. Feelis like I can never get it all done and meet all of my own expectations... I always say "there's not enough of me to go around, I need a double!"

having lots of kiddos is a full time job alone, not to mention trying to do anything else and stay satisfied creatively :)

love the color combo on your christmas card- too cute!!


I don`t die, mas i surelly miss your posts!

Welcome back!

Wow, you do it all! No wonder you had to take a break from blogging!

You are soooo creative and talented! I love your daughter's CUTE skirt she wore in the Christmas pic and for her birthday! Do you mind me asking where you got it from?
