Working On Returning ..

Hello my dear friends,

my paths are not all cleared yet but at least some of the branches have moved a little.

These past weeks have been like a roller coaster ride for me with ups and downs and not knowing if I wanted to get off the ride early. I'm working on returning to blogland but I am not sure how fast I am going to be able to do so.

I would like to thank all of you for your kind words to me. Knowing you were thinking of me was so heartwarming and I really needed that so much and I am sorry I didn't answer any of your thoughtful comments or e-mails. You are all so kind ... thank you again from the deepest little corner of my heart!
Just to let you know, I wasn't sick or anything like that but there were and unfortunately still are a few things in my life that just took the wind out of my sails including all of my strength and focus on anything. My heart has been so heavy since some time now and I just had to take a step back and that included no Todolwen. That also was something that took me by surprize... how easy it was not to be creative and work on Todolwen, something a month ago I didn't think would happen. You see my blog and creating is a part of my life that I love so much. Right now I am working hard on getting my heart and soul to a better place.

Very slowly I am also returning to my creative part of my life. Ideas are popping up again and I am feeling the want to create again too. I have started working on a new creation for Christmas which I am hoping to tell you more about soon.

I have so much to share with you ... my daughter got married and it was so beautiful! I have tried to be busy in the house and with other things too. I am hoping that in the next few weeks I will be able to share everything will all you lovely bloggers.

But for today, again I would like to thank all of you kind souls out there that wished me well and kept me in your thoughts ... it means so much to me.

It would be so nice for you to visit me soon again, it always brightens my day.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

Many, many heartfelt hugs,

Karen B.
