...I know I've been Missing In Action from posting and all things computer since the holidays.
Reasons being ...
it's a busy time building up and coming down from the holidays + being in Los Angeles for design work and the LA Gift Mart + getting back into a regular routine once it's all calmed down...and the big + is ...
I think I technically got a little burned out on everything technical!
While I love the creative part of blogging, Etsy treasuries, social networking, etc...it takes so much time, and that is time away from painting, sewing, scavenger hunting and just being out there and creating...what I really love to do! That along with my New Year's resolution of spending more time with family & friends...I'm still trying to perfect my balancing act! I'm surprised how others make it all look so easy...how do they find the time? Really...how do they? I'd love an answer to that question.
In the meantime...
...let's talk about Love!
I'm lucky that the apple of my eye, Taylor (son), married a wonderful and talented young woman, Lucinda ( daughter in law), and we get to spend time creating together.
Our latest project has been making Valentine gifts to add to my shop at Leaping Lotus. So we both got busy and came up with loving boxes, mini birdhouses, vintage hanky lavender sachets and more as our contribution to the celebration of Love...
...and hopefully creating reminders to celebrate it everyday!

Hand painted mini birdhouses with love music & poems
Then we spent the day kicking up the dust, resetting + merchandising the whole Cerro Home shop to give it a fresh + romantic feel.
SO...if your near Solana Beach ...come visit Leaping Lotus in the Cedros Design District. It's a great place to spend the day shopping and having lunch right next door at my favorite little cafe, The Twisted Tart.
Come enjoy...and feel the LOVE !
...meanwhile, I'll keep working on that balancing act between life & computer.
