Why So Quiet?

Yes, I know. That is the question I keep getting. This is by far the most I've ever let my poor little blog be ignored. Let me see if I can give a little accounting and then you might understand. 

These past two months I've created 52 different layouts for either Creative Memories, F&W Publications, Carta Bella Publications, and I've also created another 40 duplicate layouts for Queen and Company's Board program. I've designed 13 digital Christmas Card Templates, 24 layout sketches, a 2012 digital calendar, 6 regular (non-digital) cards, 2 gift bags, 1 mini album, and 10 other miscellaneous items (home decor/calendar/display stuff). 

To say that I've been busy and a wee bit sleep deprived would be an understatement :) So that is my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

The bad part is that most of it is stuff that I can't show here on my blog until after it comes out for publication, the good parts are (and there are lots) 1. That I'll have a lot of books and magazines that I can give copies away of in future months. 2. That this is an unusual number of projects for me to be working on at once so now that I'm finished I'll have a lot more time for blogging. 3. I have 8 new layouts to share over the next week or so. 4. I can now focus on getting mini photo sessions organized--in fact tomorrow there will be information posted here about dates and booking info--as well as an email going out to those of you who have done a session with me in the past/and or expressed an interest in having one done this year. And lastly 5. I have have an announcement to make--not tonight, but hopefully all the i's will be dotted and the t's crossed soon so that I can share, all I can say at the moment is that I'm very excited about it and hopefully it will give me more things to share on my blog down the road a bit :)

So thanks for your patience during my "absence." I'll try to make it worth your wait, and I'll start off by sharing my favorite layout that I did for this month with the super fun Nightfall line from American Crafts:

Ready For Magic
