Wow....been gone too long!

Wowzers! I have been away from my blog for too long. Well, I do have a good excuse. We are currently in the process of moving. Where? I don't know quite yet. But we are moving and in fact have to be out of here by March. Yikes! So, I have been a busy little bee and have been getting rid of junk and things we no longer use.  But, since I am an artist I need to create. Otherwise, I get cranky and miserable. No one wants a miserable momma. So, I made the excuse to go to Hobby Lobby.  I actually had to go to get posterboard for a project my son has to do. And I figured why not pick out a few things to work on?! I have been drooling over those primitive rosemary topiaries. I see them all over people's blogs and websites. But to me, they are way too expensive. I figured I could make one. No prob. I will just look around the web to see if anyone has a tutorial on how to make one. Nada....nothing. Oh, poo. What am I going to do. I really want to make one and if it turns out awesome make one for my sister. Thank goodness for Prim Sistas! My friend Debbie over at Prim Pals came to my rescue! She sent me great links on topiaries. Following what most of them said I came up with my version.

It's not the greatest. But I like how it came out. And best of all it cost me less then 20$! I am hoping to get a tutorial together to show you all how I made it. It was really easy peasy. So, when I get a chance this weekend I will post it. Thank you all for your prayers and thoughtfull comments! They mean the world to me!  And thanks again for reading! Can you believe it? It will be almost a year soon since I started blogging! Wow! I never in a million years would have guessed anyone would want to read my ramblings.  But thank you all who do! You get a big hug from me! Oh, almost forgot. I finally did get that pie safe! Yay! It isn't in the greatest condition but it has good bones and my husband said he can refinish it. When that will be is another post. LOL. I may have to find a place that will help me accomplish that. But I will post pics of it in another post. Right now it is in our garage and I can't get in there. It's a maze of boxes.  But I promise to post pics as soon as I can get in there.

Hello, stranger! Isn't moving exciting? There's so much going on and all your everyday life to boot! Oh, but think of all the fun you'll have putting things away!
But seriously, a new place to decorate! Lucky girl!
BTW~ I love your topiary. It is prim! I was skeptical, at first, but it turned out great!
