Hi Everyone!!!!

I am just checking in to say hello and to let you know how appreciative I am for all the personal well wishes I have received. They have made me smile!
I have enjoyed my break and am feeling a bit rejuvenated, and it won't be too long now before I am back to posting, but I want to show you what I have been doing on my break! I love gardening and have been so remiss over the past two years. But the recent time off has allowed me to be in the garden and have some fun! My gardens just like my card designs are clean and simple,..... green and white! I am off to the beach today so maybe I'll have a picture or two of that tomorrow. Thanks to all of you for being so patient and supportive. See you soon!

Donna, your garden is gorgeous! I hope you are enjoying the break. Sometimes we all need it. I have been at the point where creating was more of a task than a pleasure and needed a break. I think that's why I've taken a blogging break. I have spent a lot of time creating and less time posting about it and it's been so nice! I've been working on lots of projects and this is supposed to be fun. When it's not fun, it's time for either a break or stopping all together. I hope your break isn't permanent (I'd miss you too much) but I do hope you get the time you need to recall what you love about stamping and that your mojo seeks you out and finds you! Hugs.

beautiful garden! I hope mine looks half that nice next year!! I haven't had one this year since I haven't actually moved in my new house yet! Awesome work, it definitely inspires me!

Donna...your landscape is impeccible. So serene. Thanks for stopping by my blog last week. I'm just catching up on my posting as well--it's been a busy year. And yes, I'm from the Whitman area. ;-)
