Well....

What's my excuse this time?

I was on such a good blogging roll...posting regularly, sharing a good mix of life and work. And then about a week after my last post (almost a month ago- ack!), we experienced computer meltdown.



No computer (with the exception of my I phone, which made replying to emails possible, but to do anything online proved challenging) for close to two weeks. Try it sometime- not easy for someone like me, let me tell you!

So after the purchase of a NEW laptop (ouch), I was back online again. But the chores had to get done before the play could begin, so I have been tending to my Etsy shop, getting ready for the holidays, and filling an increasing number of custom orders. On a side note, I am so enjoying the bridal market! Such a happy time in life, and I love hearing each bride's story.


And NOW I can blog again....

You would think that such a long absence would mean I had a mountain of post ideas, but the case is the opposite for me...

So in the meantime, I will share a few photos, maybe a recipe or two (have a fantastic pumpkin bread recipe that you need this time of year) and slowly get back in to the groove again...

Until next time,
(which won't be a month from now, I promise)

Beautiful blog.

I wandered over to your blog. Found you on the 2009 One World One Heart Giveaway site. After watching the movie Julie and Julia recently, I've decided to try and go through the ENTIRE OWOH list, from beginning to end, in 90 days and connect/reconnect with all the artists and blogs that truly inspire me! Your blog is amazing and really resonated with me!

A bit about me. I'm a mystery writer, jewelry artist, and college professor. Yes, and a Gemini, if you couldn't tell! Here is my blog, where I blend my mystery writing and jewelry craft:

My first mystery Keeping House: A Madame President mystery just came out on Amazon.
Take care and as Julia Child might say, "Bon Blogging!"

I found your etsy store today and then wandered onto your blog. I love your creativity; it makes me wish I was planning my wedding all over again. Wow, have things changed in the last 16 years.

Hey Steph!

I feel for ya, with the computer meltdown. I had mine earlier this year and it is never a good time.

Your wedding and save the date pieces are wonderful and so different from what's "out there." I've done lots of wedding stuff in the past and it is fun.

Welcome back to blog~land.

Ciao bella,
Suzanne
