Happy ACEO HUMP-DAY


So here is the scoop.. well two scoops. One I am sooo sooo soo soo sooo sorry I haven't been making my usual rounds. There is a little hiccup in my life right now and a whole lot of uncertainty. Unfortunately the hiccup is keeping from visiting all of you on a regular basis. Don't worry I am fine… but the hiccup is directly connected to the thing that I cannot talk about. DRATS I know I know. I am sure at this point some of you are getting very curious what this thing is. If you email me privately I will tell you all about it. Believe me it doesn't make me happy, but then again you can't control everything in life.

Please know that I think about you all constantly and can't wait until things are back to normal. Currently I am trying to rearrange my time so I can fit it all in, but as I said before with a full time job, creating, Etsy, advertising, and a personal life, it doesn’t leave my blog much time. But please stick with me. I want to hang onto these wonderful relationships!!!!!!!!! My goal is to post every other day and make my rounds twice a week. I love seeing everything you all create.

Okay onto something different. Soooo……Please excuse this latest ACEO not my finest, but I have an okay excuse. As I said previously two days ago I was fitted for contacts. I know I am getting old. I have reading glasses and contacts. Anywho… Like a baby learning to walk for the first time I haven't acquired my contact fingers yet, and managed to cut my eye. I know, can anything else go wrong with me.. shh.. Don't want to jinx it. So needless to say I was one-eyed last night with no glasses at all and she is what was born out of it. I think she is adorable!

Hmm what else.. Well .. My b-day is coming up Feb 7th. And with that , that is the day Adam and I scheduled to get our engagement photos done!!!!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this moment.. well.. FOREVER! For some reason I have always been more excited for the engagement photos than the actual wedding.. ODDDD I know, but then again I am a little unusual. We are running into some issues though. First it is the dead of winter here in upstate NY and that means fridged temperatures. Second we need an inside location and well… just can't seem to find a nice one that we don't have to pay for. I am paying so much for the pictures that I don't want to pay for a location as well. AHHHHHHHHHH. Worst part about it I have Adam complaining because he doesn't want to get his pictures taken that long. Please understand he is definitely a man's man and doesn't like anything that involves aesthetics. ANYYY IDEAS are welcome. I wanted to do ice skating but Adam wears a size 16 skate so we can't afford or have time to have one made and ordered. Then I thought about tobogganing but we don't have a toboggan. I do have a few other ideas but I will save you the time. But if any of you have any cute thoughts for inside or outside I would love to hear about them!

Alright I am off to brave the cold. REAL COLD..

Smooches,
Steph

Wouldn't it be great to add a few more hours to the day, oh, not for chores and other stuff, but to sit and do what we enjoy? Sounds like you got so much going on right now.
I think your valentine ACEO is just adorable, even if you did it with one eye, lol! try and stay warm!
