So it's been awhile...

Wow, I'm shamefully embarrassed at how long it's been since I've posted. Nearly 3 years seems ridiculous, so I must have been so busy right? I guess so, but aren't we all?

So, what have I been so busy with over the last 2 1/2+ years? Most importantly, I am still a stay-at-home Mommy first. But, now I'm also a homeschooler. We tried our local public school, but for many reasons, it just wasn't for us. We took the plunge and tried homeschooling for the second half of Kindergarten for my older daughter. The verdict:: we loved it!

I also formed a local homeschool group last fall, so that has kept us in touch with other like-minded families. We also take super fun monthly field trips to local parks, farms, mines, etc. It's a ton of fun, but also keeps me pretty busy.

Over the last year, I also took on an online job as an "Internet Relevance Judge". Translation: I spent 10 hours weekly judging horribly boring information to ensure that when people search on Bing or Google that their searches find what they want. I made it about a year, but my husband and I both agreed that my time would be much better spent focused on my true love: Art.

So, I'm back. I will throw myself back into this full-force. I have lots of new ideas, and I'm excited to really do this! Here some of my new things below, and I recently opened another shop on Redbubble. Check it out on the right of my blog.

I will do my best to make an awesome effort to blog regularly. To start, my goal will be to blog monthly. I can do this!
