Absent from Blog but not Creating

My blog has been seriously neglected by me!

I have had every intention of posting since June but for one reason 
or another I have not found the time and now -
it's been almost 6 months since my last post.

This will be a post of more personal highlights.

Since my last post I participated in the July A Paris Street Market - 
a change in my normal schedule but happy to of had 
my daughter Laura help me at that market.

A few days after the July A Paris Street Market, our family embarked on
 a two week road trip 
to Texas.
This summer, all four of us visited my family in El Paso, Texas (3 days),
then off to Houston, Texas  where we spend 1 day & 1 night with our dear friends, 
The Heddens Family.
Our next stop was Austin, Texas (3 days),
to visit the Wagner side of the family.
Then to Rockport, Texas where we spent 2.5 days
relaxing and pier fishing in this little town which sadly
was devastated by Hurricane Harvey a month or so later.

From Rockport we went to San Antonio to spend a few days with 
my dear friend June and her husband David.
On our way back home we visited the Sonora Caverns.

Just before we left on our family road trip,
my daughter Laura got a job with Hobby Lobby In Loveland.
Previously she worked for Hobby Lobby in Littleton during last summer;
But this time she wanted to keep working when she returns to  
CSU in Ft. Collins in the fall.

The day after we returned home - Laura started her job and occasionally came to visit 
during the rest of the summer.  

I was a vendor at the August Old House Vintage Market In Loveland.

It was great to see my former Houston neighbors and friends Cindy and her daughter Hayley
at Old House Vintage Market in August.  

My son Alex returned to school - 8th grader!
We are so proud of him.  
He has matured as a student.
During the spring semester (7th grade)
he earned ALL A’s!!!
This semester he continues to make us proud.

Laura returned to CSU -Junior year!
Very proud of how she continues to work hard at school
and work.  She has continued working at Hobby Lobby
and doing well this fall semester.
    Very proud!

In September, I had a great Birthday.  
My friend June and her husband came to visit.  She helped me at A Paris Street Market and 
help me celebrate my birthday with my family.
LOVE the handmade card my son Alex made for me❤️!

My friend Lisa purchased tickets for Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars at Red Rocks -September 18th,
I have to say; this is one of my all time favorite birthday gifts I have ever received.
Absolutely Loved this concert - the best!!!

During all these months I have been busy creating.
I continue to work as a substitute teacher.

Although I have neglected posting on my blog,
I have continued posting on Instagram

My next post, I will highlight
Creations from the last 6 months
Including a post on being published in the
Winter issue of 
Sew Somerset❤️
