what's this....two days in a row???
hey thanks for welcoming me back to the blogosphere with open arms (or open laptops as the case may be), it really did make me feel good to realize that I was missed.
Also big thanks to those of you who sent me little emails wondering where I had gone to and if I was coming back. I did receive a funny one from someone saying that the Internet rumor was that I was with child and that is why I was not blogging.
in answer to that question.....NO, NOT WITH CHILD.
my body and babies are like oil and water, they definitely do not mix.
so the burning question being, where was I? Why the blog sabbatical?? Well to be truthful many of you know about the nasty comments I was getting on a regular basis, well they got the best of me and I stepped back for a while.
Not to get into it again but the breaking point was when "someone" left a mean note saying that they hoped my sick dog was taken away from me because it was obvious I did not know how to take care of him.
it sort of broke my heart, my dog was sick for months, it was hard to go through and a constant worry in my mind and to have that said to me...well, you know.
So I became a blog recluse, I did a lot of reading ( I plowed through the whole Twilight series in no time....I am really obsessed and counting the nanoseconds until the movie) focussed on art, and even started drawing again, hell I even opened a new etsy shop for my illustrations, it's called Painted Sketchbook.
But...though I kept busy, I missed you, I missed my blog. I found myself saying things like "wow if people were filled with the icing that you put on Toaster Strudel, I would totally be a vampire"...and after saying such profound/ridiculous things I realized that I should be blogging those things, not pestering my bubs at 6:00 in the morning with them, right?
so there you have it...a little of this and a little of that.
see you tomorrow.
PS- I have tons and tons of new stuff in my shop, including new blank note card sets, you should go look.
