Where have I been!

Hello everyone! I have to apologize for not posting as much as I use to. I have been so busy with my real jobs that I have had a difficult time getting to the computer and posting topics on my blog.

I work 3 days a week and try to craft in between that time. I don't know where all the time goes anymore. It seems like I am working full time lately. I have had a difficult time managing my time during the day. I hope to start on Easter creations this week. I have a special order to do for a customer first and then I hope to get some items in my Etsy store and on Ebay. But my time is so limited these days.

Here is my latest commission piece I did for a customer. I think she turned out cute. Her name is
"Little Miss Cupcake Queen"

So sorry about the lack of posts. I hope you all don't give up on me. Today is cleaning out the basement. Which is a huge task in itself. Trust me you would not want to tackle this job at all. But I know I feel much better when all the junk is thrown away and things are a little bit more organized. The garage man is going to hate me this week.

I hope you all have a great week. Kim

Hi ya Lady!

Have missed you & glad all is going well. Working almost full-time leaves little creative time, I know.

Nice to see a new post from you!

Take Care,
Chris :-)

hi kiM!

Here's hoping cleaning out the basement goes quickly and what little time you have for creating is super fun and productive!

The cupcake queen makes me hungry :)

So glad to see you back Kim!! Love the new piece, and hope to be seeing more new pieces when you have time.

I hate to hear that it is getting more and more difficult to find that creative time right now. I understand, but I'm sad because that means we don't get to see your work as much. :(

Have a great weekend!!

Hi Kim! I've missed you in EHAG!! Glad to read what's been going on in your life. A job, crafting, and now cleaning the basement? Just the cleaning part would be a major undertaking for me, let alone squeezing time in for all the others. Look forward to your spring pieces. Your little miss is adorable. Take care and hugs...Iva

Kim, I know what you mean about "time." Last time I blinked it was January! Hope you're doing okay ~ Summer's coming; maybe you'll get some vacation time to rest, relax and create!
