I'm Backkkkk .......
is anyone still out there????
Oh and Baby printable

Where the heck have I been!... I know, I know! When I went to California to move my mom and sister to Idaho I thought I could get them packed and ready to go in two or three weeks... and I had this stupid idea that I was going to be able to post from there. Little did I know that they had turned into HOARDERS! Not the filthy type you see on TV but the pack rat type that has stuff everywhere. When I was growing up my sisters room was always decorated very minimal, neat as a pin. Mine was the huge mess... boy have times changed. I have tried to stay close over the years but a lot of day to day life is missed over the phone. I think they had at least 5 of everything and my sister did not want to let go of anything. We just could not move all that stuff! It was like pulling teeth to get her to put just one of each 5 into the donation box. I worked from the time I got up until the time I went to bed. The only breaks I took were to fill orders for my little etsy store. I even ate most meals as I packed. After about 5 weeks we were ready for the movers. When I got home I slept for about a week... literately :)) When I finally woke up I discovered while I was gone my computer mysteriously defunked. I had all my graphics saved to flash drives but I did not have my programs to work with them.... I got that fixed and then life got in the way once again.... baby watch! However things are coming together now... my mom and sister are here in Idaho, my computer is working and my grand baby was born today. Of course I had to post a picture of our new little JJ!



So I am back and I will try to make up for being gone over the next few weeks!

To start with I am posting this darling little baby graphic to celebrate the newest little member of our family.

Be sure to click on the little thumb to go to the larger printable... Enjoy!

I'm so happy for your new baby. They are so much fun. I love your graphics and have purchased some. I love the stages with the players. Have you though of doing a ballarina one and makes the Christmas "The Nutcracker"? That would be awesome.
