To catch you up...

My computer has been on an involuntary hiatus for a while now... my laptop isn't working and I've not been able to find my camera card... or time to create anything in my stamp room. Life has turned upside down around here... things have changed, and so have my priorities.
I've gone from days filled with ink and paper, pictures and embellishments, creativity and relaxation to days of schedules, time constraints, responsibilities, and 3 KIDS IN SCHOOL!
The next phase of life has begun for Brandon and I. Our boys started 2nd and 3rd grade in August and Kailynn started pre-k the first week of September. When Kailynn started pre-k, I started my search for a job. A month later, after submitting hundreds of resumes and applications, I started my new job at the Carteret Publishing Company. I am the Classified Ads Manager for the local newspaper. I deal with all classified ads, as well as all the legal notices for the paper. I really like it. I work Monday through Friday, I get to have face to face interaction, I get out of the house, and I'm earning a paycheck too!
My kids are adjusting... Ethan, very well... Kailynn, with a few bumps in the road... and Clayton, with quite a few mountains in the way. We're taking it one day at a time, and I think in the end, it will all work out for the best. I'm excited about the venture into the next stage of life. You may be hearing more about our everyday lives, rather than my everyday creations, here on my blog, but I'll do my best to keep you up to date on my creative doings. Thank you all for your support and patience (Mom) in my search to find a plateaued ground to walk on.
Love and kisses!

Wow.. All I have to say isssss bravvvvoooo! Honestly, most people look @ life and really see that there is just sooo much to accomplish that they don't even know where to begin. And then, years down the line they end up regretting not taking the first steps to help them excel in their career. But you, you are the definition of true efforts and really, I think you got to where you want to be by 'planning'
Planning is something that sounds so simple, but while in Oxford, we learned that if you want to make it big in life just like those wealthy people, you have to A) Start Young (and) B) Plan ahead
And literally planning ahead got me to where I want to be in life with a six figure income and I bless every day that I live, really. All I have to say is kudos to another individual that lives his life successfully like I do :)
