Why I have been missing...

The following photos will explain why I've been absent the last few weeks from the blog.
I got new flooring throughout my house. Seriously I call this experience moving without having enough boxes! We're still getting the house put back together. We had amazing contractors that worked super quick! Floors look amazing! We got wood luxury vinyl tile and new "pet barf proof" specialty carpeting. And since a cat immediately threw up on the carpet once it was installed, I can attest that the carpet performs as promised! Whoop! (Just what you wanted to know, right?)

Right after the floors went in and before I even touched that hoarded out bathroom, I dashed off to San Antonio for a Close to My Heart event where we previewed the new Workshops Your Way program which launches in January! Had a ton of fun on the river in downtown San Antonio- all the Christmas lights were up.

It was chilly but fun!

Got home from that and have been organizing/giving away stuff from my craft room. Look for an upcoming post and video all about that.
And now, here's where I'm at: I have a wicked bad cold! Yuck! 

I hope you are doing well as we fly into this next busy week! I love you! Hugs!!
