It has been quite awhile since I've been able to post, or even create. I have been busy packing, having a garage sale and losing my mind... just a little. As some of you know from my post on flickr I am moving home to Arizona, after 2 and half years of living out here in Mississippi with my boyfriend. Just me and my daughter will be moving back and it is so hard to say goodbye. But I know it is for the best, for both of us. He is a good man and my daughter and him have such a strong bond (they share the same humor!) but our relationship isn't as strong. And financially I am unable to make it out here, I havent been able to complete school or even find a full time job. It has however given me some life lessons some good and bad that I have learned from. I will be on my journey in a budget truck cross country pulling my car the first week of July. So until then I will not be able to post very often if at all and most likely will not find much time to create or keep up with anyone elses blogs! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoys the wonderful summer ahead!

I am a 28 year old single mother of an amazing and inspiring 7 year old little girl with a huge imagination. If I could I’d spend all day creating and playing with my daughter Rosalinda. I just moved home to Arizona from Mississippi! I am so relieved to be home I have missed the beautiful weather. I am hoping to make new friends and become more involved in this amazing handmade movement. I am always inspired by fellow artists and am excited to see everyone’s creations.
