surfacing from Oct madness

I didn't mean to fall off the face of the LJ world! I knew October would be crazy but really it's been insane. Fun but insane.

Last weekend I was in Myrtle Beach for our annual Mary Kay Fall Retreat. It was great fun and I took some much needed time to get away and get quiet with God. It was cool, the MK speakers throughout the weekend reconfirmed some of the things He'd been speaking to me at the Women's Retreat a few weeks ago. I feel like I have some good preservative on my life now, a direction and purpose that I've been missing lately. I came back feeling very refreshed. Life has since hit but I'm slowly getting caught-up and moving things off my "pending list" which feels great.

Sadly in the midst of the madness, the thing that has totally fallen by the way-side is costuming. So no, you haven't been missing anything because I haven't been working on anything. My projects are so far down the list it's a little discouraging. I have 5 quilt signatures, a "gift" project, then 3 pending commissions, plus 3 half finished modern skirts I desperately need.

When I will have time for my costumes I don't know. I'll just have to make time because it's starting to drive me crazy. First on the list - new 18th century stays. I need to order the supplies though - that is on today's to do list!

Welcome back, Jenny. I'm glad you could catch some peace and quiet and definitely mental refreshment before the madness hit.

The photo of you is stunning, has a very cool 1940'ish feel to it. You are beautiful :)
