I'm ALIVE!

Hey YALL!!! I am soooooooooo sorry for the unexpected break! My foot has been better for a while now but I decided to take an impromptu vacation from the blogosphere. I've been SO busy online and off and I think I just plain wore myself out! But I feel refreshed and I'm ready to get back at it :)

A few things you should know:

The Cool Kids Support Local challenge is NOT over! I figured the easiest thing to do would be give you guys the rest of the prompts all at once and then give a deadline. I'll figure out the details and post more on this Wednesday! Thanks for hanging in there with me..the last few prompts are going to be so much fun so please check back :D I've put together a HUGE goodie bag and I can't wait to see who wins it!

Another exciting thing I have to share with you is that my friend & amazingly talented artist Carla Thursday is sponsoring a giveaway for Cute Stew, YAY! She is going to give away one of her amazing prints so please keep checking back this week if you want to enter :) I hope to have it posted by Friday...

BEST NEWS OF ALL: I got my FIRST commission for a customized Blythe doll, woooooooooooooppeeee!! I am SO excited! It's one thing of ME to buy a doll, customize it, and then sell it, but to have someone like my work so much that they are going to buy the doll and send it to me to be customized is insanely awesome. *happy dance* Thank you so much Laura! It really helps me believe I can do this :D ('cause some times I just don't feel "good enough" yuck!)

I think those are the main things I wanted to share with you guys :D I've got a ton of pictures and stuff to share. I've been dog sitting, hanging out with good friends, and I even threw a dinner party while I was away from the blog. I'm having a GREAT summer so far and I hope you are too!

so glad your foot is doing better! I think everyone needs a blogging break- especially in the summer when there is soooo many things to do! Will you be showing us any of the work on your commission? I just can't get enough of your Blythe work!
