I am so sorry I have not been able to come out and leave my compliments very much lately but I hopey you know it is not because I have not wanted to it is just the 3 kiddo's schedules are keeping me insanely busy these days and I am still keeping up with your gorgeous creations through my google reader, but I know that does not mean as much as a comment would I just want to stress that I adore you work and your spirit and your creations so much!!!

Chris you have a knack for paper and the way you choose your colors and arrange all the elements that I have never seen another crafter have the amazingness that you possess!!! I love every thing you have ever shared with us and I adore you as a person and a friend and my only regret is that I have had so little time lately to keep up with you in words my sweet kind treasured friend!!!


Carolyn said...

Prayers to your hubby and your girls. You must be exhausted trying to care for everyone else. I hope you are all better and back to normal very soon.
