Hello???  Hello???? Is anyone still out there?!!

It's been a loooong time since I last posted!! I had to just walk away from it all.

Walk away from the mess created from moving from my craft room to a corner of my bedroom.

Walk away from the overwhelming task of downsizing.

Walk away from trying to figure where to put everything.

Walk away from blogging and looking at blogs.

And then  literally, I started walking and exercising again.  Which takes up quite a bit of my "free" time.

The mess is still present.  I'm ready to start dealing with it again.  I need to deal with the clutter so my messy creative self has room to throw paint, pull out papers and make a whole new pile!! LOL!!

Yep.  I'm ready to get back to my creative journey.

That journey starts today.


I am very excited (and a bit nervous!) to be joining once again with the E-Team as a Guest DT blogger for the month of April!!

Head on over to the eP blog  to get more details on how I used these products-----


to make THIS!!!


She's BAAACCCCKKKK!!!! lol!!

'Till next time.................make a mess!! Explore some creativity!!

Well, how wonderful to see you creating once again! It's always difficult to downsize but sometimes it is just necessary. Good luck with all that. But how gorgeous is this? Such great use of color! Hope to see more of you in the future!

Yay, you! So glad you are back. I get the whole walking away thing....it takes so much time to do what we do.....Off to look at your EP project!

Sylvia said...

Such a beautiful project, Starla, love the colors and all the stenciling! We all need time away and with a family and work you definitely need a break. but I am so glad you are back in the blog world. You inspire others and that is good. Take care, enjoy your life and have a wonderful Friday!
