2017 and I'm Back!

Monday, January 16, 2017



Hello stranger! Happy 2017! I already have a feeling it's going to be a great year! How have y'all been?

I know, I know. I've been the stranger for the past month. Or two. Well, lets be honest, probably the past whole year! But between cooking dinner, doing laundry, trying to keep the house straight, going to work for at least 40 hours every week and trying to have a bit of a social life, things can get really crazy and sometimes things have to give. Unfortunately the blog was that thing. I had decided to put the blog on the back burner to focus on life and my job and just having an awesome relationship with the people in my life. If y'all are anything like me, 24 hours in the day is not enough.

But now that the holidays are over, I think I am ready to jump back into blog life! I've missed it so much. My creative juices are flowing and I honestly feel like something has been missing in my life. Like I couldn't show my creativity as much and, well, that made me very sad.

I can't promise y'all that I will be back 100% posting 5 days a week. I'm going to start a crawl before I run! My goal is to post once a week. I'll see how that goes and if I have so many ideas I'm busting at the seems, I will increase it. But as for today, I figured I would start off small and dip a toe or two into the blogging water. Enough to tell you that I'm back, give a small holiday recap and let you know I'd be pleased if you still follow me and were on the lookout for new posts to come!

NPG and I had an awesome Christmas and New Years though! It went way too fast! Did anybody else feel that way? I felt like I was just getting off of work on Thursday before Christmas, I went to sleep and it was already Christmas day! And then back to work! Where does the time go?

We had a really nice Christmas though. NPG and I spent time with friends and family visiting everybody and just having a grand ole' time. We went to look at Christmas lights with some of my friends and then visiting my family Christmas eve and Christmas day.


Christmas was really about giving for me this year. I wanted to make sure I gave really thought out gifts. I think I did a superb job because NPG was elated with one of his Christmas gifts. Most of them were practical like warm winter clothes or heated gloves. Because really, who wouldn't want that when you get over a foot of snow at a time! But his biggest gift, and my personal favorite, was his biggest surprise! He had no clue what he was getting!


Texas String Art! He loved it. He had no clue I had been working on it. I'm happy we will finally have something on the walls besides my temporary Christmas decorations. Though NPG wants to put it in his office with his other Texas stuff. But baby steps y'all!

Thanks to Pinterest for the idea and getting down to it and making this cool project, I've come up with some of my next blog posts. I've decided to use my creative juices for getting back into blogging. Making this state string art will actually be my first real post back!




I've had the urge to create a vlog channel for a while. So I need your advice.

Would having blog posts and vlogs with tutorials be something you're interested in? 
Would you be interested in watching craft and recipe tutorials instead of just reading them?
