Yes… I am still alive, and I am very sorry for neglecting my blog lately. I haven’t given up and do intend on returning shortly. The truth is, I’ve had some things going on in my personal life and unfortunately had to put my blog on hold for a little while. Hopefully I will have the issue with the pictures fixed soon, as well as some new stuff to show you. I sincerely thank all of you that have emailed me…sometimes a few kind words can really make a huge difference!
