I have been somewhat remiss in posting recently, and for that I apologize. I'm trying to be a better blogger...

However, the reason why I haven't had any posts recently is twofold. First, I'm working on three swap packages that I want to keep semi-secret until my partners recieve their goodies. There's the January Jamboree IYP 5 Swap with the lovely raina.storms, a personal swap with Karin (!!), and a personal swap with Craftster user chloeiscrazy.

Chloeiscrazy sent me an awesome stenciled t-shirt and fabric headbands. I sent her package out aeons ago, and it still hasn't arrived. I am beginning to suspect that it disappeared somewhere between here and Canada. Thusly, I'm working on a replacement package for her. I can reveal that she's getting a purse and some Blythe dresses from me. Pictures soon, I hope!

The second reason why I've been a bad blogger is this cryptic image:

I am working on a Large Surprise. Only, I don't get to decide when I am giving it to the recipient. They do. But they don't know it. I am actually very nervous about giving this gift, and I'm sort of on the verge of not giving it at all. It is a large undertaking, and I will finish it regardless, and I know I will have a home for it if I do opt not to gift it. Confused yet? Pictures coming...well...whenever my recipient dictates that the time is right for me to gift this gift, if in fact I do gift it at all.

In other news, I have some terrific linkage for you today. As a former photography junkie, I am pleased as punch to point you in the direction of my cousin Elizabeth's photography gallery. Just more proof that arty runs in the family.

Oh, I did finally cut my hair..about three weeks ago now.

Before:

After:

I do sort of miss my long hair, exclusively for ponytail-related reasons, and I am unfortunately once again a slave to my blowdryer, but overall I like it a lot! Even the boy, who professes to have a preference for long hair, admitted that it's pretty cute. :-D

In closing, I just wanted to say how nice it is to have garnered a small following for my silly little blog. I find writing here very fulfilling, and I'm so glad to share it with you all. Ciao, bellas!

Yes, I'm quite confuzzled lol. I know our swap is long running. Life just keeps coming in the darned way of things! I wish blogger were nicer to us though, because I want to see all those pictures it's not letting you put up lol

And yes, I'm still confused :P
