let's try this again

Where did the time go?  School started, Thanksgiving and Halloween flew by and now Christmas is right around the corner!  There has been a lot of activity in the Little Papercuts house these past few months, and while none of it is directly work related, a good chunk of it is craft related.  Which in my books is a good thing and a step in the right direction.  First of all I'd like to say a very big thank you to everyone still following this lil ole blog of mine.  I've left her deserted for quite some time, but I'm ready to give her a bit of much needed love and attention.  So where do I begin?

I could ramble on for pages about our summer, reminiscent of essays written upon returning to school about 'How I Spent my Summer Vacation', but I won't.  Our summer was relaxing and filled with very little things to do on our list.  That's it.  The kids were happy to return to school, and believe me, so was I.  You all know me well enough by now to know that work is still on hold.  The miniest papercut is still at home, making messes and getting into more mischief as each day passes.  But I wouldn't miss a second for anything.  I'm really lucky.  I have had the amazing privilege of staying home to watch all of my kids grow up and be hands on.  So work can wait.  It's only until next September, and I'm sure the time will pass quicker than I'd like. 

So what else have we been up to?  I'm happy to say there has been quite a bit of sewing and a whole bunch of paper craft in the works.  Halloween and the mini papercut's 3rd birthday provided me with a HUGE artistic outlet.  Pictures and stories will be following shortly, but for now it feels good to be back.  Dipping my fingers in the creativity pot has put me in the perfect frame of mind to get back to work.  Happy and excited.  Yup, that's about right. Hope you guys are ready for what should be a great year :)

empty pockets

Yikes!  Today I realized that all of my contacts in all of my e-mails have been deleted!  I'm sure I inadvertently did it somehow (darn you iCloud), but now I'm left with empty contact lists.  I had hoped it was just a little bug, but it looks like all of my contacts have been completely wiped from all of my devices...cell phones, laptop and iPad.  Poop.  To anyone who is currently on my e-mail list or has requested to be updated as to my working status, please click on the link in my profile and get in touch with me.  I apologize.  Technology is not my friend :(

playing catch up

Hi everyone :) Did you miss us? I've missed you all, but am glad to have returned to this little old blog of mine. It's been a really long time since I've blogged about anything! I feel so busy, but also feel like I'm doing nothing (if that makes any sense at all). Is it possible to not have a minute to sit down to relax and catch my thoughts and at the same moment feel like I haven't gotten off the couch all day? Even now, as I try to write to all of you my mini papercut is trying to serve me tea on top of my laptop keyboard :)

So, Little Papercuts artwork is on hold at least for another year. I would like to get back to it earlier than that, but the realist in me knows that with my tiny little terror still in the house any kind of paper artwork will have to wait until she goes to kindergarten (thankfully when she starts, kindergarten will be full day as opposed to half day or alternate days!). However, all crafting has not ceased in our house because that would just be crazy :) I can't wait to show you all what we've been up to, but it'll have to wait for now...the mini is talking to me on a play cell phone and waving something in front of my face. I guess some things never change;)
