"Nobody trips over mountains.  It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble.  Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain".  
~Author Unknown~

Greetings, friends!  I hope you are all happy, well and enjoying these beautiful early Autumn days.  Yes, it's been a while and I love this quote because it is so true!  It would seem that I have been stumbling over some small pebbles the last couple of months, and although I have been distracted from my true passions (you all know what those are), I have been busy here and there, creating a little, researching a little, and yes....I even have a new blog design which I'm so excited to share with you!  I still need to organize my sidebar, but I'm so pleased with the new layout and artwork.  Karen from Valentine Design built me a beautiful and unique design - she was able to take my very elaborate explanation and bring it into fruition.  I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking custom blog design.

Oh, yes, Gallery in the Garden was a magical and wonderful event I'm hopeful to be a part of for years to come.  Not only was I able to contribute to an incredible cause, I made some equally magical friends.  May I just say, I've admired Leanne Emory's work for several years (Triskele Moon Studios).  Her designs are so unique;  delicately and precisely detailed.  I had the opportunity to meet Leanne and Kelly at Gallery in the Garden, and I feel blessed and honoured to now call them friends.  So many positive things about participating in this event; I'll definitely be back in 2012.

Now, for a few things I've been "slowly" working to complete.  I've also been working on some custom projects, all of which should be completed soon (fingers crossed).  Thank you for visiting my special little place of whimsy.  My goal (I always have a few) is to ignore those small, annoying pebbles and GET SOME THINGS ACCOMPLISHED!!! Oh, I miss it so when I'm away...
