Commit or Quit

Hello Blogland!!

WOW.  I can't believe I've been gone for SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long!  I can't believe this little, old neglected blog is still running.  What caused my absence, you say?  Am I still crafting, you ask? ;) 

Well, long story short, life has gotten in the way.  Part of it is that I got burned out on the photo taking, photo editing, & posting.  But the other major reasons are that we didn't have internet for MONTHS; I was working beyond normal hours and not giving myself crafty time; we spent the holidays visiting family members in the hospital; I lost my grandma and uncle within 2 weeks; we had 2 funerals in less than three weeks; and now my health has taken a nose dive.
Consequently, there hasn't been much crafting going on.  But I have done little things here and there.

I debated on quitting the blog & asked myself if it was worth continuing.  I decided that my main purpose for the blog at the moment is to share my family's memories.  I'm the documenter in the family, and I LOVE having my scrapbook pages of our memories.  The problem with that is that my family doesn't always get to see them.  Besides, I'm sure I'll be sprinkling in other projects here and there.

No, I don't have any projects to show at the moment.  (Hopefully, soon!)  But why don't I leave you with links to some awesome blogs?
