I just wanted to drop in and let you know why I'm so horribly AWOL at the moment...(I know my blog is happening slowly, but my commenting has dropped off to almost nothing - I apologise!!)
I know that there are many people who talk about having a dream. I have had a dream too - and the funny thing is that my dreams are usually pretty dry to other people :0) For a while I have been studying hard - partly because I teach my kids and partly because I love to learn. A couple of months ago I expressed my deepest dreams to my hunkadorus about having the opportunity to study personally, under the tutelage of a couple of my favourite historians/authors/teachers.
In the weirdest Cinderella story that dream has come true. What I never expected to happen has happened. Like an unbelievable novel, where the protagonist just HAPPENS to be in the right place at the right time, and just HAPPENS to bump into the right person, and everything just HAPPENS perfectly ... life really happened and the offer to do JUST THAT was extended without my ever having to request anything. I have always believed in the hand of Providence - but can't remember ever experiencing something so unexpectedly wonderful!
So the point of this post is that my crafty life is having to take a back seat right now. The studying to participate in the course has started. It's hard. It's thought provoking and it's good. And I am *unspeakably grateful* for this opportunity!
I will be playing the next few challenges at Wee Memories because I promised to be there this month - and I'm sure that when the books get too heavy in between times, I may make a card to vent some of that pent up creative frustration ...
But overall, I do need to take some time off - and I'm so sorry to be such a bad blogging friend. You've been so wonderful to me over my creative endeavors - *THANK YOU*!
I don't know how the next while will pan out. But wanted to let you know where things were at.
If you actually read to the end, bless you :0)!!
Have a totally and completely WONDERFUL DAY!!
