Something new cover

I really missed blogging consistently over the last few months. Our days have been filled with a steady stream of home improvement chores which are now at a trickle instead of a raging new river.

I appreciate you for sticking with me through all of this! It makes me feel good to see you here in what can sometimes seem a really monotonous time in our lives.

I've started a new art journal and I have been working on some canvas projects here and there as time starts to slow down and become more enjoyable.

To celebrate my new beginning, as promised, I would like to offer a couple of pretty neat-o blog give-aways this week. Up for grabs first is a brand new Cavallini "Birds and Nests" stamp set! If your name is chosen (at random), I'll ship it out to you when I get back from vacation.

edit: Congratulations, Heather Bradley! Heather wins the Cavallini set! Send me an email Heather and I will ship it out to you!

Yes...vacation. I've been saying all along that I wanted to re-open the blog artfully on August 1... I forgot I was heading up to the Pacific Northwest on August 2nd. Sheesh. So, I'll be posting for the next few days in advance..I won't be here...but I've made lots of pages for you to enjoy while I am gone!

To enter into the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post (one per person please). That's all! Entries will be accepted through Monday,  August 4th. The winner will be announced when I get back from vacation.

Have a great weekend, friends! See you on Monday!
