Back in the bloggy saddle

Thanks for being patient with me y'all! Boy starting a home-based business is A LOT of work on top of my already busy schedule so I had to cut out on a lot of my blog memes.
I know that I have lost a few readers from that and I am so sorry! I am hoping after this craft fair in November that I will be back on my regular bloggin schedule!
Anyway here is something for Friday :-)
