Since I haven't posted since Nov 1, 2011, I'm not sure if anyone stops by anymore, but if any of you do......thank you!

I've had a rough year; been sicker than usual.  I have been hospitalized 7 times this year and then there were many, many times in between when I probably should have went to the hospital, but as I really dread doing so, I managed to suffer through at home.  I was even transported by ambulance one of those times to Thorton Hospital in La Jolla, which is about 200 miles from home.  To make being sick and away from home even worse, it was a couple of weeks before Christmas.  Luckily, the doctor was able to release me on Dec. 23 so that I could be back home for Christmas.

Unfortunately, I am temporarily removing my website/store (Nutkitten's Handcrafted Jewelry) as I do not have the energy right now to constantly maintain it.  However, I plan on putting the site back up very soon.

During the past year, I have made a couple pieces of jewelry here and there but not like I had in the past.  But, I trying to get back into the swing of things.   So..........

Here is my first step:  Back to my Blog

My second step:  Participating in Lori Anderson's, 'Memories and Thanks Blog Hop'.  If you would like to participate in this blog hop, you may do say by following this link, or by clicking on the button on the left hand side of this blog.

My third step:  Participating in Lori Anderson's, Non-Blogger (and Blogger) "Season of Joy" Participation Event'.  To view this event and/or sign up, follow this link.  You can view pics of the items created as they are posted by following this link.

Steps to come:  Get back to making jewelry on a regular basis, revamp this blog and give it a fresh, new look, get Nutkitten's Handcrafted Jewelry site back up, and anything else I can think of.

That's about all for now, except that I will try to visit everyone's blog in the very near future and do my best to keep in touch and up to date.

Luvs to all!

  1. Hi Tracy,
    So glad to see you back. Wow I had no idea that you had been that sick. I can not wait to see what you create for the challenges coming up and your new look for your blog.

  2. Thank you Therese! Of all the blogs I follow, I missed yours the most! (Honestly) I think I am going to need help. My blog looks awful. I really don't have a clue on how to set it up, backgrounds, themes, etc. I just know that I look at it and think, Yuck! Thank you for welcoming me back. Hugs!
