Where Have I Been?

Hi, blog friends!

If you follow my blog or are used to seeing me participate in blog hops and challenges, you might have wondered, "Where did that quirky girl go?"   I do still exist, however, my life has changed quite a bit since I last blogged.  I'll give you some highlights:

  • I'm now living in Michigan!  I came here in January to perform at a wonderful theatre for 8 weeks, and that turned into a 6 month gig!  I performed in Smokey Joe's Cafe, Godspell, and this week, we open our production of Nunsense!  I've been having a blast!  This was just supposed to be a temporary thing, but I love it so much here that I'm relocated permanantly!   I just need to find a place to live after Nunsense wraps up June 10th.  Wish me luck with the apartment search!
  • I met someone!  EEK!  I have found the most amazing man, and he makes me soooooo happy!  Life is great!
  • Unfortunately, I was not able to bring all my papercrafting supplies with me to Michigan (yet), so that's why you haven't seen me creating anything in a while.  I'm currently living in housing provided by the theatre where I'm working, and there just isn't enough room for all my stuff.  Speaking of my stuff, before I left for Michigan, I took some pictures of my craft area in Indiana, and I'll post those next so you can see them.  When you see the pictures, you'll understand why I couldn't bring it all the Michigan with me.  I have A LOT of stuff, and if you're like me, you'll understand that I can't just bring a few things with me.  Once I'm working on a project, I have to have access to ALL my stuff because you never know when you'll need that ONE thing that you don't have with you.  Am I right?  LOL
So, that's the brief update about my life.  In other excting news, my good friends here (one of whom I went to school with in NYC, and we were roommates after graduating) are opening their own theatre soon!  I'm excited because I will be working with them once it opens, so that's the future of my job situation here.  Just waiting for paperwork and stuff to be approved by the city, and then we can get to work creating an amazing theatre!  WOOHOO!   In the meantime, while that is getting worked out, I'm looking for a part-time job.  Any suggestions?  LOL

Well, I just wanted you all to know that I haven't forgotten about you!  I'm still completely in love with DeNami Design stamps!  I've got all sorts of card ideas swimming around in my head, so rest assured that once I get all moved and settled in here, I WILL start blogging again.

Until then...happy crafting!!!

Love,
Amy

P.S.  In the meantime, let me recommend 2 amazing blogs with phenomenally talented women:

Confessions of a DeNami Addict:
The incredibly sweet, funny, and oh-so-talented ladies, Tina & Wendy, are as obsessed with DeNami Design stamps as I am, and their blog has really blossomed!  It's GORGEOUS!  Their cards are fantastic (adorable AND elegant!!), and they're now hosting a monthly challenge!  CHECK IT OUT!!!

Kismet, Art, and Life:
Dana is a true jewel of the blogging world.  Her creations are jaw-droppingly gorgeous and creative.  She inspires me all the time, and I'm sure she'll do the same for you!
