What's New

I have lots to share! And I am so excited to be back in the crafty/inspirational swing!! I know that I have been pretty silent this year but it has been quite eventful year and I feel like I am riding a roller coaster!

Here's a recap of my 2012 so far:

-I tried to cut my finger off...

-I quit my dance teaching job, which was so hard because I love teaching and the kids so much! (I'm so thankful for Facebook and email! They have allowed me to keep intouch with so many families.)

Teaching <3

-My husband and I moved to Chicago

Happy St Patrick's Day! 2012

-Received The 'Teal Spotlight Award' from the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio, for my philanthropic work with Miracle Dancer - the annual benefit dance concert I founded and direct.

I'm sure the list goes on, BUT let's just say the roller coaster is a rockin' ride with lots of twists and turns. I am holding on tight and hoping for the best.
