Many Thanks


Gosh, it has been so long since I last wrote a post of my own that I almost forgot how to do it...

I hope you all are having a wonderful Summer.  Things have heated up considerably here in Texas... thank goodness for neighborhood pools!  Is it me or is there a gusto for life in the real world when the weather gets nice outside?  Blogging is best enjoyed in colder or rainy days...

My Mister Darcy has been gone for a good month, globetrotting while I was taking care of the fort solo.  With his return, I have had time to do some major housecleaning which is now extending to a little bit of dusting around here at The Shiny Pebble as well.  Nothing major.  There will be a couple of fun announcements soon, both related to the Designer Challenge.  Come back Friday for some sneak peeks.

Today, I would love to thank all of my lovely readers and friends, who have kept up with me thru these past few 'absent' weeks.  My heart is filled by the generosity of the lovely bloggers whose efforts filled these pages with such fabulously creative material.  Thank you to all of my designer blogging friends and artists for their talented work portrayed here. I am also thanking my dear friend Kelly at Out of Colorado for a couple of fun awards she has sent my way.


To thank you all, I would love to pass along these awards to all of you fantastic bloggers who have helped me thru these weeks.  You may choose not to pass on the awards or not to post them in your sites, but I just want to acknowledge you all right here.

Please, pick one of these links from my list and go visit them.  Tell them I sent you as a way to say thanks to them - spread the love.  You are all wonderful, creative people.

Hugs and Kisses!
Catherine

Life gets very busy! I find it harder to blog in the summer too...kids home...warmer weather...etc!

I am glad to hear from you and happy to hear all is well!

Enjoy!
