I received a beautiful handmade card for Christmas from a Fiskateer friend. Since the closing of Fiskars' social community we rarely stay in touch so this card means a lot to me. One thing he hoped for me was that I was still crafting.
I have been away from my blog for a little over a year. Honestly, I had/have "blog burn out." It is a lot of work to create a crafty blog post...writing, taking and editing photos, products, editing, online events, promotions and getting the word out.
Now I have another grandchild. Our first little boy: MJ. I spend a lot of time "making memories" for me and for all my grandchildren. I hang out with my grandchildren at music, (now violin) ballet, tap, recitals, performances, museums and many other adventures.
Little's Brother MJKnowing some of you I can hear "...and what's new?" LOL I know I seem as though I am always busy. Maybe I am to one degree or another.
After the last 12 Days of Home for the Holidays I made a choice to cut back with online presence. My presence with my family is most important to me. I am blessed with 4 beautiful children, 3 awesome in-law children, and 6 grandchildren.

I'm almost finishedSo why this blog post?
I want to answer Don's inquiry. Yes, I do craft...a lot. I scrapbook, work on yard art type projects and I am learning new and exciting art forms and new techniques for the things I already do. Something the Fiskateer community taught me to strive for.
I would love to have you come on this journey with me. I don't know how often I will share. My unofficial goal is once a week. With everything out there on the net that is crafty this is more than enough.
I made 40 light-up snowmen for my grandchildren to give as gifts to their dance friends and for a party with Santa.
These were a lot of fun to make.
I created 48 boxes and 48 hand made pom-poms for two advent calendars for the grands.
This little tool for the boxes was a life saver.
Until next time ....
