Why hello there!

Hi everyone!! Man have I missed you guys! I'm so sorry I've been away for so long. My husband and I are in the process of buying another house, I got hit with the stomach flu that's going around, and our lawn maintenance company for our home in Jacksonville decided to shut down so I've been on the phone all week finding a replacement (which I finally did last Friday). On top of all that, I was finishing up my project for our upcoming Sweetheart Hop :) I really really love how it turned out and I can't wait to share it with you guys!! :) I hope to see you all hopping along with us!! There will be lots of blog candy along the way so don't miss it! February 5th! The day after I finished that I came down with what I think was my first not fun! I was pretty much stuck in bed for almost 24 hours straight because of it! But, I am happy to report that ((knock on wood)) it is gone and I am feeling much better.

Oh yeah, there's some more good news I've been wanting to share with you!! Jen over at has invited me to be a guest designer for her!!! :) It's a new thing she's starting this year and I am so incredibly honored that she asked me! :) This will be my first time being a guest designer, and I've got to admit I'm nervous, but super excited too!! Please be sure to check out and follow her blog when you get a chance. You won't be disappointed :)

Another super surprise I got this week was the Stylish Blog award from not one, not two, but THREE of my bloggy buddies!! A huge thank you to Erin, Norma, and Karen!! :) All of these ladies are incredibly talented and inspirational to me, so when you get a chance please be sure to check out their blogs as well.
