Apologies . . .

I'm so sorry that I've been absent for so long. In September, I came down with Shingles and while the rash disappeared overnight due to the anti-viral drugs, the nerve pain continued for 5 weeks. And it just happened to be in my neck, shoulder and collarbone . . . just the areas that make you feel like you have a constant neck/shoulder ache.  It wasn't fun.

 (Side note: no, I didn't get the Shingles Vaccine; my doctor said I was too young ... and I was healthy ...  and I wouldn't be a candidate to get shingles ... and ... famous last words, right?)

I'm just getting back to where I can focus on cardmaking and sitting at my work table for any length of time.  However, our Community's Annual Art & Craft Fair is this Saturday, and I'm the Chairperson.  Since I fell behind on my responsibilities during those 5 weeks, and right now I can only work a few hours a day without the nerve pain returning, I had to focus all my energies on this event the past two weeks. 

But, beginning next week, I'll be back to blogging and sharing crafting projects with you.  Stay tuned.
