Back to Blog and Happy Darwintine's Day!

Well, hello there! It's been a darned long time!

It's nice to be back. It's been 3.5 months consisting of a bajillion projects, 1,000+ unread blog posts on my Google reader (seriously), hundreds of softies sewn, stuffed, and sold, about 5 trips out of town, 4 birthday cake projects, 3 friends engaged, 2 friends with new babies, 1 family illness (all is well now, thank goodness!), 1 mugged friend, 1 newly gained iPhone, and sadly, 0 blog posts. 

So the gist of it has been craziness + busy-ness. But I'm back. Ahhhh!

I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Year time, and that all finds you well on this lovely Darwin Day

To celebrate, here's a little last minute Darwin inspired valentine I sketched up about a year ago, and decided to finish up as a quickie for today's special occasion.

It's not every year a dead scientist turns 200, you know. Happy Darwintine's Day!

And happy Darwin day to you as well! And don't forget that it's also Lincoln's 200th birthday! I only just realized they're celebrated on the same day ;)

I'm glad you're back to blogging. I started following your blog months ago only to realize I never had any updates! Welcome back and I hope your busy schedule allows you a little time to recooperate before Spring fever hits!

Glad that you're back at it Alicia. Sounds like you've been pretty busy, so I'm looking forward to seeing more projects.
