Well, hello there. I didn't mean to take that little break, but you know, things happen. We had a fun holiday, despite the fact that almost every person caught the nasty little virus going around, including yours truly. When we weren't sick, we were busy playing Rockband on Playstation, which was seriously fun. This is one of my favorite shots of John and his sister. Hilarious. I don't dare show the picture of myself here, for fear you guys might stop reading ;) Although if you're my friend on facebook, you might be able to catch a glimpse of it.

I also finished up the doll dress for my niece just in the nick of time. I didn't get a picture of it actually on the dress, but it's still very, very cute. She seemed to like it.
We've also been busy preparing for John's upcoming bone marrow transplant, which is where honestly all my energy has been the last few days. Between yesterday and today, we're heard some bad and relatively good news. Basically John's tumor is becoming resistant to the chemo, which is obviously not an ideal situation. The good news is that he is still a candidate for a bone marrow transplant. So, as you can imagine, we've been feeling a little up and down the past few days. I just remind myself that things could be worse and at least there are options for his treatments. John has described the situation in a little more detail on his blog.

Lastly, if you're in the MD, D.C., VA area, I'll be doing a craft fair at Washington & Lee High School in Virginia. I'll be participating with other members from CREST, the D.C. area Etsy team. Be sure to stop by if you come!
