It's true what they say ...

... deaths come in three's.

Sorry for the absence lately. To be blunt, we've now had 3 deaths in the past month. My cousin Aaron was killed in a tragic hit and run in Oregon about a month ago, which has left us all with good and bad days. It's been very hard to deal with, mostly due to the tragic nature of the death and being so far away from it all. Closure is such an important thing with the death of loved ones, and it's difficult when you don't get that. Also, my great-aunt Norma passed away this past Wednesday, and my mom's neighbor Don passed away yesterday. There will be two funerals this weekend, in the midst of birthday celebrations for Lily. My sweet girl is turning 9 today, so I'm a proud mama even with all the sadness surrounding us.

Just wanted to let you know I'm still around and busy crafting. I have two blog posts (almost) ready for you. One will showcase photos and instructions/template links for the goodies we made in my Snazzy Scor-Pal Creations class last weekend. The other will be my list of new classes booked for April-June. Bear with me ... will try to post those tonight or tomorrow. They will be worth the wait ... thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, check out the other A Muse Creative Team member blogs. There are lots of goodies out there today ... it's amuse bouche time!
