The Long Winter

 Greetings everyone,

It has truly been awhile since I've been here.  Seems like time is flying right by.  It has been nearly six months since I took my new full-time job.  It has given me many ups and some downs, but the work is interesting and I am passionate about promoting the work we do.  However, it does leave me little time for my other pursuits.  So, I am still trying to find a happy balance.  When I get home, it is time to care for the pups, prepare dinner and relax.  I try to pack a whole lot of living in on the weekends!
 We've seen our fair share of storms this winter - a never-ending stream of them, it seems.  So I man my camera and take photos!  This sweet photo of a squirrel and his little feathered friend ended up on the local news this morning!  Of course, I missed it - but my hubby and a few others managed to see it!

 Normally, this time of winter is not my favorite.  But all the wintery white makes everything look so beautiful; however, I will admit that I am looking forward to spring, the sun, and flowers!
I like to roam about the yard searching out natural beauty.  I thought this moss (so surprised it stayed green!) on a broken tree limb covered with snow looked so beautiful.  I've had a lot of fun with my camera this winter, taking photos of critters, birds, landscapes, and whatever else caught my eye.
I also had some health issues recently, from which I am slowly rebounding.  I've taken a renewed interest in whole, healthy foods.  I recently made these amazingly delicious almond butter brownies from Food Babe.  It's hard to find time to prepare healthy meals when you get home late, so I've been searching out easy, delicious and good-for-you meals and snacks that are quick to make.  Working on my health has been a priority, which is one reason why I have not been here much.

I've been slowly working on some art, which I hope to share soon.  I haven't let go of my true passions - just trying to evenly channel all my interests into one happy place!

Glad you have not forgotten about me!  I hope to be back soon!

Til next time,

It's a Sale!

 Greetings everyone!

Hope that everyone who celebrated had a nice Thanksgiving holiday.  We enjoyed the day celebrating with family.  The hubby and I were the hosts this year, and we created quite the spread between the two of us.  Lots of hard work - but the end result was worth it.  My young nephew declared that my pie was delicious!
So, to usher in the holiday shopping season - I have decided to hold a mini-sale in the shop.  From today through Monday, you can save 25% off all goodies in my shop - no coupon necessary.
You'll find several holiday themed pieces, like the earrings (last pair ever!) and woodland deer and cardinal.  You'll also find a number of beautiful treasures like this autumn-toned moth necklace.
This original inspirational art piece is also included in the sale - along with other prints and postcards, too.

Remember, the sale ends on feel free to stop on by the shop and pick up a special little something for yourself - or someone you love.

Til next time,

Thank You for Stopping By!
