Knock, knock....anyone still out there??

Wow, almost exactly a year since my last post.  I have signed up for a whipping and flogging to perhaps remind me that I started this blog for a reason.  The reason was to learn from others and share what I have learned.

This past year has been very hard.  I have suffered great loss and setbacks, but I have also become employed again and loving my job.  They trust me enough to work from home 3 days a week so it can't be all bad.  It is amazing how much can actually change in just one year.

In this past year I have also seen an amazing decline in Blogs and posts.  I can remember logging into Blogger in the morning and having so much to catch up on that I would sometimes have to pick and choose.

It seems everyone is turning to Facebook and other social media to share and learn.  I have to admit that I love a good YouTube session of video watching, but there is surprisingly few miniaturists making videos.  I am not a huge Facebook fan.  I really don't have the time to spend trying to follow along with everyone individually.  I have yet to really see the point in Twitter honestly.  I have a Twitter account, but not sure what my login is.  HAHA

Anyway, I guess the whole point of this was to just say "HI" again.  Hopefully there are still some of you around.  I hope everyone hasn't given up on me.  I have some minis I really want to create so I hope to find a bit of time here and there to work on them.  I loved sharing with you all and I need to get that back in my life!

Till later!


  1. Were still here, i had not posted for a year either on my blog, but was still around in blog land. lol Glad to see ya back!

  2. Hi Dale! I am still here... posting away.... but sometimes wondering where the heck everyone else went??? I am not too active on facebook... it doesn't have the depth of blogging. So here I am! Come on by and visit my latest still not completed project! I look forward to seeing what you will be building!

  3. Welcome back! Not all of us have gone... I don't even have a facebook account. *grin* Sorry to hear you've had some hard times but it's great to hear you're employed again. Hope to see you soon again in blogland.


  4. I agree about the impact of FB but I do still like to read blogs, though I am very bad at my own. Glad to see you bacK!

  5. There are some still here, a lot on FB, but I divide the time between here and there! lol

    Glad to see you back! :o)))

  6. Hi Dale,
    Great to see you are posting again, I love your blog..

  7. Hi Again Dale! I am so excited to see you back and I have to say that I have missed you very much! I agree that blogging is perhaps not what it use to be but since I have only been at it for a year, I can only go by what other "old-timers" have said. It does take longer and is more involved but that is why I enjoy it like I do. I signed up for F B but then never activated my account. It would be just one more thing and I have too many things on my plate as it is.
    I am sorry that life this past year was trying and full of loss. That is very hard be it a job or a loved one and trying to keep it together is always a challenge. I am glad that you were up to it and that you now have a job that you enjoy! God has a way of working things out I believe. I look forward to visiting you and your Blog and sharing in your Many talents once again.
    Welcome Back! :D


  8. Yay! I was hoping you'd return. I still love reading blogs--the best way to show lots of pictures and stories--and miniaturists love photos! My own blog ( isn''t scintillating, but I like it to keep track of my projects and share as many pics as I can.

    Sorry to hear about your tough year, and here's hoping things are getting better.


  9. Oh dear me! You've been AWOL for a while now. Hope everything is okay.
