Taking time to smell the roses

I just wanted to let you know that I'm taking a break from my etsy shops and blogging for a short while.

I'm having surgery late this week and I am taking the time to prepare for my recovery.  The next several weeks will be spent recovering and spending time with my family.  I'll be glad to have this gall bladder gone and hopefully get back to myself by this time next month.  There are so many things that I've missed while I've been feeling not well.

I look forward to returning with some beautiful creations - perhaps some edible delights that maybe I'll be able to indulge in once again, new designs for WoodstreamPapery and WoodstreamDream, and photos of the lovely things growing in my gardens and at the patch.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!
Have a blessed day!
