It's About Time!

Well here I am again.
Minus many of the photos and files I once had..
Life moves on though.

By the way, thank you for all the kind thoughts and comments.
I am lucky to have a husband that works on computers for a living so I knew that everything possible was being done to save my computer.
In the end he bought me a new hard drive and we're back in biz.

I know I owe you about a weeks worth of pool updates but I thought I would take a break from that for a moment.

I recently had the opportunity to work on a special order for one of Derek's coworkers.

I had fun creating them even though (as always) they took me longer than anticipated.

The edge is more casual but gives it just the right primitive touch.
I was so inspired by these that I actually made a few more other styles for my Etsy store.

I also made this family sign as a thank you gift for someone named Freeman.
(Yes they got it already and I'm pretty sure they don't read this blog:-)

I had a blast creating this and trying to give it just the right Texas flair.
A little stretch for me since I don't do Texas decor at all.

They were happy.
I was happy.
There was happiness all around.

It's great to be back Minions!
(I've always wanted to say that and when I try it on my kids they just stare at me blankly and Derek for sure does not appreciate it. Odd.)
Let's carry on as if nothing happened to this poor ol' hunk of technology.

Carry on.

Do stop by my Etsy store!
(I'll be adding some new signs to it this week too. YUP!)

Glad you are back and yes, we missed you.

Lovely pillows and I'm really admiring the sign. Do you use a projector for your signs? Glad you are back and that you now have a means to back up your photos. I really need to look into this.

Please, I for one am dying to know what the pool is looking like. Although the pillows and sign were nice to look at too. Welcome back.
From a faithful minion.

I am so glad that you got your computer up and running...that is always such a mess. Too bad you lost all your files/pictures/etc. Well, Onward, as they say!

Love the pillows- xo Diana
