A Time to Grow

Wow, its hard to believe that it's already the 15th day of 2012.  Time certainly does fly. Anyhow, I finally have some free time to reconnect with my poor, dear neglected blog. I am surprised to see that I still have followers here!!! Thanks for sticking around. So, you may be wondering what I have been up to lately. Pictures speak louder than words, so this pic should explain why I haven't had much time to blog lately.

No, she is not mine, although I wish she was. This is my niece, Isabelle. Isn't she adorable? So anyhow, my little Sis is a young Mom and needed a lot of help with her new Bundle of Joy. I was more than happy to pitch in. Now baby and Mom are settling in quite nicely and I can spend more of my time beading and blogging and less of my time changing diapers ;)

So what to do with all this new found time on my hands? Well I decided that 2012 will be a year full of growth for Abracadebra Designs. There is so much more I want to do with my beading, my Zibbet shop, and this blog, too. What little free time I have had has been spent on Pinterest (which I have become addicted to) and I am amazed at all the craftiness and creativity out there. I am truly in awe of the beautiful creations posted there daily. So for 2012 my resolution is simply to stop looking and start Learning and Growing and DOING. It is absolutely amazing how much can be accomplished in a short time, and  if you don't believe me, just ask my niece, Isabelle.

And yes, I have done some beading, nothing too new or creative, but inspired by the white and gray of winter.

So there you have it. Your latest update from the absent blogger, named Abracedebra.  I am hoping you will stick around and watch as I learn, grow and create in 2012.

TTYL and make it a good night,

I also took a blog break and recentered myself, re-entering the blogging world recently. It was a really good thing to do for myself, it made my direction and path clear once again, and I'm delightfully refreshed. Sounds like your "break" did much the same for you ~ can't wait to see some more beading creations! :) Oh, and your niece is precious!!

hi. I left a comment, but then something weird came up so not sure if it went through. So, if you get two messages that is why.

Thank you for your sweet comments. I have also been neglecting my blog.

Your neice is adorable, and a perfect reason to neglect your blog. All of mine are back in Michigan so I don't get to see them as much as I used to. They grow up so fast! SO enjoy every moment you can with Isabella she will be all grown up in a blink of an eye.

Your winter pieces are beautiful!
