Hey there!!

For those of you who haven't completely given up on me....

So much change has transpired over the last few months that I'm not even sure where I'd begin or that I could hold your interest long enough to get through it all, but suffice it to say that I'm a stronger person for having experienced every second.  
Unfortunately, my little family is still wading through all that comes with a difficult (and expensive) divorce.  I have faith that we'll rise above (eventually) and in the end be better for it.  Faith is the only thing I have left that hasn't been sacrificed, walked on, taken advantage of, or manipulated.  
And my girls.  I have my beautiful girls.  My constant.  They remain the only inspiration I need to move forward in grace.

On a happier note...the girls and I have been taking little adventures and doing our usual summer activities.  Visiting the coast and it's beautiful beaches and monuments.  

I also took my oldest to her first rock concert!  It was a blast!!  We saw Papa Roach, Slash with Miles Kennedy, Seether and Godsmack.  It makes my heart sing to know that we share a love of music.  

We haven't been able to travel much (to camp) because of cheering/tumbling schedules, but in a few weeks we're heading south to Water Country in New Hampshire with my sister and her boys for some fun.  I can't wait....we love water parks!!

I have to admit that I haven't been very creative as of late, so I don't have much to share in that respect.  My hands are getting worse, and as soon as summer winds down and we're back onto a more structured (school) schedule, I'll take the required next step....surgery.  I just can't put it off any longer.

But here are some of the projects I've managed to finish...in fun or for Reverie Creations customers.

I'm currently working on some Grandparent's Day (September 13) greeting cards and masculine birthday cards.  I'll have them listed in my shop soon so be sure to check them out.

In lieu of paper crafting, I've done a lot more mixed media painting...so much easier on my hands, but because it's so personal, I don't show any of it.  Maybe someday.

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
