Catching up!

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for all of your kind and caring comments while I took an unexpected blog break. Your thoughtfulness is genuinely appreciated.

We're getting back on what for us is an even keel (though life has a way of straying off keel on a regular basis :-). Our Thanksgiving was busy... but good. We enjoyed our families and friends... and lots of good 'ole Southern cooking. I've started back walking on the treadmill and am on a half-hearted diet. What a crazy idea. Who diets in between Thanksgiving and Christmas?!

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful too.... now it's time to plan for Christmas!

P.S. Laure at Painted Thoughts blog gives a neat idea on how to use a piece of art as your blog header - and customize it without changing the original art. It works great... I used it on my new header! Thanks, Laure :-)

Great to see you in the Christmas spirit Teresa.
Your a Star. Have a wonderful Christmas.
Blogs will be fairly quiet from now until after Xmas. we can all take a well earned break. A break with a blog friends still in mind through the festive season.
You will be in my thoughts. Have a good one.
Hugs. Dors.

The new look is lovely! You've done a great job. Glad your Thanksgiving was nice...on towards Christmas. (Oh, and I'm watching what I eat, too--it's easier to keep the holiday pounds off in the first place than lose them after the festivities!)

Wow...your site looks so beautiful and festive. Your art is looking wonderful. Glad you had a great thanksgiving.....ugh, I need to diet, don't need to put on more, thought of waiting til January but not sure I can stand myself!!!! You go girl!

Candy said...

Welcome back! I love the new look. It's helping me get into the spirit of the season. I'm so happy that your Thanksgiving was good. I wish I could get inspired, even a little bit, to behave myself food-wise:)

Hmmm... maybe I'll do a little Internet Christmas shopping.

Kat said...

Hi Teresa, I am on a diet between Thanksgiving and Christmas so far no good! LOL!
Thanks for visiting me back! it was so nice to hear from another creative person. I love to craft and make and sell many of my crafts.
I am hosting a free give a way and I know what you're thinking I don't have time for this but this one is quick and simple and so I wanted to stop by and invite you to join in the Christmas fun.
I hope you're enjoying a wonderful Christmas Season! big hugs

Welcome "Home"! I like the changes on your blog..

Gary Keimig said...

Just a quick note Teresa. I ee you are still sluffing off doing your painting or at least posting your art. I do hope all is well and it is just the busyness of the Holiday season. It has been a great and fun year checking out your site and I look forward to what you will be doing this next year.
God bless and keep up the great work

Kat said...
