LONG time...

It's been a VERY LONG time since I posted here. A year and a half ago, I ex-patriated from Canada to the beautiful tiny Latin American country of Ecuador, and now live happily, high up in the Cajas Mountains.  Relocating to another continent is complicated, to say the least. I still don't have all my precious crafting supplies, but try to use what I can find here, and what I find on my travels back to North America.

I'm posting a current card...doing beading and embroidery these days...and hope I'll be more active in blog postings as time goes by.

I'll enter this card for these challenges: 

Alphabet Challenge Blog "L" is for "Lacy"  
Inky Chicks Summer Colours
That Craft Place "It's a Girl Thing"
 "One Stop Craft "# 236 challenge..."flowers and ribbons" 

THANKS for the challenges, and THANK YOU SO MUCH for still coming to visit! Hope you'll let me know you were here.
