Hi Friends

Sorry my blog posts have been so sporadic lately. I've had a lot going on. It's all good stuff, but it's still be a lot on my plate. I'll tell you about it below. Before I do that, I thought I'd share a card I made using the fabulous Lawn Fawn set Blissful Botanicals.

I just love this set. There are so many options with it. I have focused on the leaves before, so I decided to give the flowers some love.

So, here's what has been going on. I've recently resigned from my job. I've been at this company for nearly 13 years, so this was not a decision that I took lightly. I had an incredible opportunity come my way, and after a lot of prayers, Carlin and I decided that I should pursue it. I am overwhelmed with how good God is to me. Friday is my last day, and I still cannot believe it.

I am so excited about this new job, but I am sad and nervous too. I have a lot of friends I've made over the last 13 years, so it's hard knowing I won't be able to meet up with them easily for coffee or lunch. (I am going to be working from home, so I can meet up with them for lunches, just not so easily). Thus, while I am excited, happy, it is also bittersweet.

I've not slept real well because of my mind racing. I've also got some other things unrelated to work that I'm working through that have me preoccupied. It amazes me how God blesses me despite all my flaws. I am so grateful.

That is just a little bit of why I've been inconsistent here at the blog. I want to let you know that the friends I've made while blogging are a huge blessing to me. I am amazed at the friendships I've made through this little blog. I thank you all for stopping by. I do apologize for not commenting on your blogs lately. For some reason, I cannot comment on google blogs when I'm using my internet explorer (I've not taken the plunge on my laptop to switch search engines, but I'm getting close). The only time I can comment on blogs is when I'm on my iPad using Safari. I do stop by and ooh and ah and the amazing creations.

Just one more thing, remember there's a super fun Lawnscaping challenge going on right now with a great prize package from Jenni Bowlin.

Have a great day, hugs and blessings
