A New Start

IMG_0168I have been away from the blog and crafting altogether for many months now. I have decided that instead of going back to school so I can re-enter the rat race that I am instead going to “retire” early and just enjoy myself. I have the huge blessing of a supportive husband who likes me being a housewife and who works in Corporate America so we can have a good standard of living without me contributing financially at this point in our lives. I have decided to accept this wonderful gift and get back to doing the things that bring me joy. Both of my children are now out of the house, one to the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and the other to the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado, so I have plenty of time on my hands. I enjoyed a wonderful summer of traveling to see my family and hope to continue to do that in the future. I have visited Colorado a few times which was so beautiful and inspiring. I have many photos to work with at this point. This will be the first Christmas that I have not been employed or overcome by family crises and I am so looking forward to it. I have spent the last month cleaning out and reorganizing so that I have a usable work space and am ready to get started making Christmas gifts for family and even putting some things in my etsy shop. My heart is warmed by thoughts of bringing my family back together for Thanksgiving. Time to say “Welcome back!”oventurkey
