the comeback kid!

today is a big day for me- besides returning from my little bloggy hiatus, i'm today's featured blogger on sits! so welcome and hello to all my new visiting friends! 
i feel so much pressure to show off my entire personality in this little post- but instead of trying too hard, how about i just link a couple of my favorite posts so you can get to know me on your own?
a little about my life: la boheme
one of my favorite crafty posts: christmas stockings
my thoughts about: girlfriends

and you can always click on any photos in the right column to read more.
i'm so excited to be back, and i'm so excited you're all here!  i can't wait to catch up with you all and say "hello!" {plus, i've got lots of things to show you. and did i mention i missed you?}

  1. Oh, can I relate to your post about girlfriends! Wish I couldn't. I don't know why we can't be more supportive of each other as women.

  97. Happy SITS day and congrats!

    Ok, I WISH my husband could get behind the concept of not exchangng presents for Christmas or birthday, like you and your husband did. I think that is awesome. Recognizing that it's not important, just being together is. Good for you! I totally get the poor artist thing too, my husband is finishhing his degree in Theatre, and my degree is in music theatre performance. I teach voice, hegoes to school, we're poor. Ahhhh, the life.

    Anyway, hope you enjoy your day. I enjoyed looking around your cute blog.

  126. What an insightful post about girlfriends! I hate that girls are so competitive. "True" friends are few and far between, but when you find them... hold on for dear life! I have a handful of girls I know are true friends. The rest can be sketchy at times, but I try not to let it affect me too much. :)

    Happy SITS day!!!
