Followers........Where are you hiding?

When I go behind the scenes, my followers are all sitting there nice and pretty, but today they are no longer visible when I open my blog!! Does anyone have any idea how to correct this? Very disheartening.......I love when readers/followers post comments on my FB wall, but please also post remarks right here on the blog.......it would make me so happy!

Well, after 1500 miles on the road this week, I needed to look the other way at the disarray in my house and head to my studio to create for a while tonight. Can't quite decide which room in my house requires the most attention, but I do know that it must look perfect in 2 weeks for company! I need to wait about a week before posting my LO from tonight though.

I will soon be posting info on some classes I will be teaching in the fall in Lancaster, NY. I'm excited about preparing for them and looking forward to meeting new people and having some creative fun!

Well, 5:00 a.m. will come early tomorrow, so I'm going to tie up a few loose ends and call it a day!

WOW! It has been so long..........

Can't believe I have not blogged in so long! Life has been incredibly busy but I think often that I need to post a new entry......and then I get caught up in something or other. It is heavily on my mind today after getting home from my first ever CHA in Chicago.

I am exhausted from seeing so many awesome products that I absolutely must have, meeting people who I have connected with on FB, sitting in business seminars and classes and well, that heat could tire anyone out! Special moments included watching Dyan Reaveley demo while working in her art journal, watching Tim Holtz do his magic and meeting Linda Cain while at Tim's booth. I did wish I had the ability to bi-locate so that I could also be in my art room to create!

This spring and summer have been crazy busy: a trip to NYC, several trips to NJ and Philly, helping to organize a brain cancer walk in May, and a surprise visit from my son 2 weeks ago when I turned 60. The rest of the summer looks to be just as busy: a wedding this weekend, a family reunion picnic, and a house concert by the incredible Vance Gilbert to celebrate my birthday in early August......and wonderful projects at the St. Jude Center.

I have alot of artistic ideas weaving through my brain and will spend a lot of time in my art studio translating those ideas into art pieces or layouts. I have 6 classes to create samples for and a huge project to prepare for. Whew!!!!!!!

I do commit to stopping here on a more regular basis so.......check in!
