Where has the time gone?

2016 was kind of a blur. After living in the same house in Virginia for 33 years, we decluttered, packed up, renovated, and sold it.  We moved to Texas. Right after moving, some family challenges occurred, so getting unpacked and settled took a bit more time than we'd hoped. Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays were busy, busy, busy, and we put some of the unpacking on hold. We are mostly unpacked now, although there are still boxes in the garage where my husband's car needs to go. My craft room was mostly set up, but then I realized the shelves were sagging and needed replacing. I bought some new shelves, and had to pull everything apart as I replaced sections of shelving, so it went from a "ready to craft" state to a "chaos again" state. Our two youngest sons both moved in for the summer, too, so I went from being an empty nester to being a mom again, complete with cooking for two young men with healthy appetites. At least they do their own laundry. I haven't had much time for crafting. I've made a card or two, and a few pieces of jewelry, but my papercrafting has been put on hold for the most part. I am hoping to get back to doing some major crafting soon.

For Mother's Day this year I got a heat press. I am recovering from Shingles, so I haven't felt up to doing much, but I have done a couple of t-shirts. This could be a lot of fun.

Once I figure out how to post pictures here again, I will add a few photos. It's been so long that I can't remember how I did that in the past. I'm not seeing any option for uploading from my iPad.
