auf wiedersehn [till we meet again]


many of the st. louie pix (like the wordless wednesday post) were snapped here {blossom & toile}…an extraordinary & enchanting antique shop…

it’s time now to begin my little r & r from my blog…you may, however, still find me each monday this month at CaC, as i am guest hosting the CREATIVE CRAFT SWAP in honor of national craft month…there’s still some time left to sign-up folks>>>you have until this saturday march 3rd to do so…& you may also find me here, where i’ll be starting to pair up partners for the tea swap my sis & i are hosting…

this month is a wicked BUSY time for me>>>lots of never-ending wips, work& personal commitments as well as  conferences (like the country living women entrepreneur event on the 10th & a 4-day speech pathology conference at the end of the month)…i’ve got so many things going on right now that i don’t know whether  i am coming or going…& i need to slooooooooooow it the heck down.

so i’m going to take a much needed break [though i promise you it’ll be a brief pause because i get such wicked withdrawals] from my blogging adventures… just until my offline projects/commitments/obligations/etc. quiet down some…

know that i will be thinking about all my dear blog pals, sistas & vistors on my little time away…& also know that i’ll be sending all the postive karma i can muster your way…

it’s not goodbye, you know…just a brief intermission, if you will.  i’ll be back, perhaps lurking a bit here & there, but most assuredly, i’ll be back rested (i can only hope!), rejuvenated, reconnected & revved up to go 🙂 !  i’m sure by the time i resurface i will have LOADS to show & tell!  

just a few pix taken from over the year of my artwork, family, friends & adventures to tide you over>>>



& one last thing,


shine on my friends 🙂

affectionately, mary ann xoxo
