I've just returned from Las Vegas to see the overwhelming response I'd received on my give-a-way. I now have 115 followers, and I am so thankful to each and everyone of you for taking the time to read my blog and to be interested in what I am doing here.
Unfortunately in the blink of an eye, life can change and it is so important to live your life to the best each and every day. While in Las Vegas my fiance's uncle suddenly passed away. He was deeply loved by everyone who has ever met him, and he was a wonderful man. We meet so many people in our lives who are confused with our choice of hobbies, and then you meet those who are absolutely impressed and in awe of what we do. Jim was one of those people. He was a retired engineer and completely understood the skill and talent required to do what it is we do with our miniatures.
Jim passed away in the place he absolutely loved, his cabin, doing what he asbolutely what he loved to do, fly fishing. It's a sad time for everyone, and tomorrow we leave to go to his hometown for the funeral.
Unfortunately I will have to delay the draw for the give-a-way until I return on Sunday. It will give others a few more days to enter if they choose to do so. I apologize for the delay. I also have to apologize to my fellow swappers because I had hoped to get the garden swaps mailed before I left for Vegas, but paint had still not dried on a couple of items and this task will also have to wait.. I am now back just long enough to unpack and repack to leave again. I hope everything will be worth the wait once you receive them.
There are far too many new followers to list right now, but I promise to do that at a later date. I have tried to keep up on my blog reading while in Las Vegas but the time difference for me (4.5 hours) made me extremely tired, so I am still three days behind on this as well.
I am leaving a picture of another project I am working on, my bakery, and a peep into the front door to see all the shelving on the back wall. More to follow on this project in the future.
