Slipping...

I've been slipping lately, very much so, with posting here. Should I blame it on Twitter or Facebook, or etsy, or Artfire, or any other venue that takes sooo much of my time? Nah. I went to Sweden to see my mom who is 91 years old. Went for two weeks and it was really good to see her! She still lives alone, but it's a worry for me. Thank God I have a brother who lives locally, or I don't know know how I would cope with the situation.
I just got back home to FL, made some more mosaic tiles and now I'm trying to catch up on the Christmas opportunies for sales in my various online shops. I have to tell you I sent out some big waves of gratitude for the warm and delicious weather we're having 'cause I can't cope with the slush, the grayness, or the fog that I experienced over in Sweden. It gets dark at 3:30 this time of year, and it's one of the reasons I always looked for a sunny place to "perch."
I'm behind on my Christmas things, but it'll all come together and there will be pictures to follow!
