I am officially back to my blog! And where have I been? yep you guessed it...busy...which is kinda getting old to write about on here! But I have gotten lots of projects finished-for example- revamped my website with a new look and current stuff, FINALLY put some goodies in my etsy shop, filled some orders, began work on Christmas ornaments that I make and sell every year at a few different venues, created new classes that will tie to my book release and began submitting proposals AND THEN split up Thanksgiving between San Diego and Colorado and now finally I am back into my groove! Thank goodness it is Friday and it is raining- yipeee- this means I will be extra productive this weekend (something about the rain makes me work harder!).
And last- I will leave you with some info about a class I will be teaching in my lovely hometown of Seaside, Oregon after Christmas at our family gallery/studio- Burke Design Studio. Please check out the details below!

I have been such a bad blogger lately...yet again! But as usual things have been crazy and I am just trying to catch up! Thankfully I have been able to start back in with my gym routine- slowly but surely I will be working back up to my normal routine (i hope!) and I actually went with my hubby to beach one early morning this last weekend to walk and to take pics of him in the water, this was just what I needed before starting the day! Other than my typical stuff, I have been working to make class proposal deadlines, projects for a few different publications, completely revamping my website and opening an Etsy store and these are just the big projects I am trying to tackle before the holiday weekend....AND...to top it off I woke up with a strange rash on my arms this morning- it looks like an allergy-and I cannot for the life of me figure out what I am allergic to. So I am now all looped up on benadryl trying get rid of it...argggghhh!
After Thanksgiving everything is going to hit and life is going to get even more INSANE making stuff and filling small orders and project requests. Check back soon because I will be posting all kind of fun stuff and opportunities!!
