Happy Holidays & WHERE did the time go?

It has been far too long since my last post, but a crafty project I was working on for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary took over my life for quite a while.  Fifty years of photos (5,000 scanned slides plus a couple hundred recent digital photos narrowed down to a MERE 800+ photos), 2 hours of 8-mm video from the 1950s -60s (painstakingly digitized and edited frame-by-frame down to about 30 minutes), a couple of hours of old family gospel music from when I was a child, and some very old audio of my grandfather reciting a Bible verse, singing a lullaby, and reciting the Gettysburg Address were all brought together in a near-2 hour DVD that I presented to my parents when I visited them in November to help celebrate their BIG accomplishment. 

It was lovely and my dad was a weeping mess.  Mission accomplished! :) 

My point is that I will soon be back to the blog, and I have high hopes of creating wonderful and crafty things.  Be patient with me as I try to take care of my son, clean my house, prepare for Christmas, run my ebay store, and try not to go completely insane along the way.  

I pray the year 2011 holds in store wonderful things for you and your loved ones.  Have a blessed holiday season, whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, or any other sacred day, may the Lord be with you and keep you safe.  Happy New Year, too!!!
