Okay, so I may or may not have accidentally deleted all of my blog decoration images from my Photobucket account. Ugh. That was only 4 years of work.

I hope you didn't come here and see it all naked and think I'd thrown in the towel. Although seeings how long I have been gone I wouldn't blame you.

In April, my friends and I once again crafted our little hearts out and held our semi-annual handmade craft bazaar. I started "crafting" in early March and kept on going all the way through the 2nd night of the bazzar. I'm still working on a few lingering special orders as well.

I made watch pendant necklaces, watch pendant keychains, beaded interchangeable watchbands, and a few mini paper scrapbook pages. Here are just a few examples.

Immediately after wrapping up the bazzar, the entire digital scrapbooking community started gearing up for this weekend's once-a-year big event iNSD (International Scrapbooking Day). I may be a bit prejudice, but if you're into digital scrapbooking you may just want to have a look at the amazing, incredible, fun challenges and events happening over at The Digichick.

I do have several pages I need to upload here, but I don't want to do it all at once. So I'm just going to up the two tonight - two that I made with new releases coming out this weekend.

This first one is of my son an my parents' sweet kitty cat. My son is definitely a cat-person - much like his mom.

I had a lot of fun making this second page. I used so many different designs by ViVa Artistry.  I love to layer and layer and make it look deep and "real." The kit won't be on sale until the 3rd so this is just a sneak peek.

I thank you all for sticking with me. Thank you always for stopping by and taking a look at what I've been up to. There's a lot more to say, but this is all I can manage for now.

And that is all for now. I can try and promise to update again soon. I promise I'll try. I promise I'll try to find the energy to update my blog decoration images again. I'm tired and I'm really looking forward to this 4-day-weekend Golden Week in Japan.

Oh bummer, Holly! Well, think of your new blog look as extreme minimalism. ;) I love your journal template page! I just bought those, so now I have a sample. :)
