Bits and Pieces to Catch Up

I have indeed been missing in action...however, I am back. There were some family things to attend to last week...one of which was seeing my grandparents whom I haven't seen in several years. After Mom's accident and the health difficulties of my other grandmother, there has been a great desire to visit my other grandparents. They are in their mid-80's and not getting any younger. Life is short! We must do what we can when the opportunity arises. It was a wonderful visit and hard to leave since they are far away, and we aren't sure when we'll see them again.

While away, I received an email from Sadie that Lollishops will be closing its doors. Was I sad to hear this news! I had signed up to be a part of Lollishops before it went live on line. It was great to be a part of Sadie's vision. There were opportunities to do press kits, craft challenges, advertise in major magazines, and be a small part of a larger group of very talented people. Many, many thanks to Sadie for the opportunity. I will miss Lollishops in the new year.

Also, many thanks to Cap Creations for the Distal Funk cookie stamp giveaway...I actually won! I was able to choose any two cookie stamps that I wished from Distal Funk's Etsy site, and I chose the snowflake pattern and the teacup pattern. Also included was a little recipe booklet. I can't wait to make up some cookies and stamp the top of them then enjoy with a hot cup of tea. Yum!! Please, visit Distal Funk's store. These stamps are of exceptional quality and beauty.
