Valentine Freebie s + Update On Blog

Pin It

I thought I would update everyone! I have not disappeared!! + Freebies I noticed a few people visiting here as I popped in to check on things. I haven't posted in so long. It's been a wild time since last summer. Lots of ups and downs....but, that is what life gives us sometimes. Right? I wanted to say hi to all you lovely bloggers and let you know I am around and things will pick up on the artsy end! Here are two Valentines Printable  Freebies I am sharing today. This one I created I kept it quite simple and neutral print it for yourself or someone. This is the smaller of the two.

With that being said. I did start my website and have a blog / journal with it, although I haven't posted much due to life, my craft and inspired living website taking a lot of my attention. But, what also happened is this past summer Sammie got hurt riding a scooter at a neighbors house. The dr.'s weren't sure it the two breaks in her wrist would heal right. So she had surgery and recovered, and seems to be good as new. The healing took several months, she needed extra help unable to get it wet when bathing or showering, dressing was a challenge without help, not to mention entertainment since playing like normal wasn't an option.....after that school started, lessons, drama club extra driving.....Then there was getting ready for my sons wedding and in Nov. he got married. Ya! Now my second youngest is having a baby in May. Of course there is all the between our dog of 10 years passed on. Leon is playing more music and I am holding down the fort more evenings solo. (his creative outlet)

Hasn't she grown? She turns 11 yr. in May!

Which means I can share some new journaling, sketching and painting again soon.
