Align Center So I've been absent from the craft world for awhile now. I took on a lot of responsibilities this summer and haven't been able to keep up with them! Life has also been throwing lots of curve balls my way and with a husband and 2 kids you can always expect things to get derailed from time to time. I feel the need to apologize to my customers and those that support me for my lack of communication. I do hope that in the end everyone will leave satisfied and understand that I am a full time working mom that crafts on the side! So far everyone has been absolutely awesome and understanding and I appreciate it so much!

My goal is have things settled down in the next month or so. I hope to be able to re-fill my etsy store and be able to take on more custom orders. I have hated turning people down in the past few months but I just haven't had the time! If I have missed anyone or need to respond to a questions please feel free to e-mail me at I will be trying to tie up all loose ends this weekend. I will be taking a few weeks to take a breather, regroup, and get back to the creative drawing board. I look forward to bringing you some new and fresh designs.

Kindra ... life can get overwhelming. Family always comes first and it should.

I personally know from experience how difficult it is when we get so much on our plate (platter if you will) and try to make everything work. Sometimes it's just impossible.

Your customers/friends will understand your need to take some time away to regroup, reorganize and just have some "you" time. I have learned over the years that most everyone truly does understand. The folks we have the pleasure of knowing ... they are not only customers but they do indeed become friends. I have found them to be the most understanding, warm and kind folks I could ever imagine.

You will get everything settled down and your beautiful, creative energy will resurface with the most amazing creations ever!

Take good care,

OMG, Kindra I know that you have always been so busy with family, work, your online shop, the blog and the forum. I always wondered how you did it all. I would sit here and wish I could be like you and have the energy that you have. You do have too much on your plate like you said. Whoever is friend they will & should understand why you have been away for a while. I myself was missing you, but totally understands that your family comes first no matter what and than your job. You need to take a breather, regroup & you will figure it out. You really can't do everything. A lot of women feel like they can do it all, but than realize that they can't and that is not because your family and/or friends expect that of you, it is because you expect that of you. I get like that also & my husband will tell me to slow down. You will get everything worked out & the dominos will fall into place. I miss you as a friend. You take as long as you need. Your friends will be here waiting for your return.

The photo of you holding Kamryn is beautiful along with the b&w with Kerry & Kambel.

When you feel ready, please send me an email, so I can keep an eye out for you.

Your friend,
Denise (Dee)

Life is always unpredictable for everyone, but all your friends and family understand when you have to step back, take another look and reroute your steps. Hang in there. :)

Kindra, What a beautiful family you are. God has surely blessed you all. Your family is and ever will be your first responsibility. It's admirable that you understand this. Be well, my friend, and follow your joy. xoxo, Sherry :-)
