Let’s Talk About Why I Haven’t Been Blogging…

I’ve said it before but it so true, when I am busy doing fun exciting things there isn’t time to blog.   When I have free time, I have nothing fun or exciting to blog about.  That is all to say, I have been having lots of fun and no time to blog, heck I haven’t had time to even sleep I’ve been having so much fun. 

It was a beautiful day at the Barn House Season Finale.

  A couple days later I removed the few things left from the

Fall Show at Monticello’s.

  And a couple of days after that I packed my bags and headed to Lincoln City for Art Camp.

What a great time I had with my 37 new best friends.

What a treat to have Jo Packham come to Art Camp with the Fanciest Farm Girl I know.  Tiffany taught a class on how to make a crown.
