welcome to my holidays

When Tiffany and Dylan asked me in November to do a Christmas House spread for the December issue of Eclipse, I thought, “No Problem! I’ve got plenty of time!” What I didn’t take into account was I was also just going back to work after being home for months dealing with my health. Once back to work… let’s just say it’s been one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever dealt with. I don’t know myself as someone who can’t anything. And most days, I just can’t a LOT.

Some of you may have noticed I haven’t posted as much. I’ve had to suspend most all blogging for now, as it’s taking all I’ve got just to work. Nights and weekends, I’m pretty much toast after working all week. I didn’t expect this. I thought I’d keep getting stronger, but it’s not going that way.

It took more than I thought it would to finish this Christmas House. I decorated a WHOLE house. It’s probably the biggest decor piece I’ve ever done. It’s my love of blogging all in one post, probably the last big post for a while. I’ll be around, and post when I can… but for now, Happy Holidays from me to you. Love the ones you love and love them well. Be grateful for your blessings, and please, take care of your health.

This whole issue of Eclipse is amazing. Give yourself a little gift and spend some time going through it. There are some gorgeous pieces, all celebrating the amazing people, creators, and photographers in Second Life. I’m so proud to be a part of this community.

Welcome to my holidays…
