I fell off the face of the Earth again...

Hi All! Sorry there hasn't been a ton of new stuff lately. I have been SUPER busy getting ready for the 7th Annual Hearing Impaired Family Camp at Lions Bear Lake Camp in Lapeer, MI. I am the Program Coordinator, so I've been doing all the activity planning and preparing all the materials needed for the games, decorations, and art activities. It's a BIG job, but I love it!!!
(To give you a little backstory, I was a Teacher of the Hearing Impaired before I created Maria Rose: A Prime Collection.  Teaching is still one of my greatest passions and, for now, I get to put all that love and creativity into HI Family Camp.) 

Please forgive my absence and I will try to share some new stuff with you soon!  Thanks!

Little Garden Visitors

(Ok, so I know this one is not from the garden, but this little ladybug kept landing on my computer the other night.)

Exciting new additions to my Etsy shop!

I'm sorry there hasn't been much new stuff lately. I had a super busy week last week finishing up a wedding invitation calligraphy job, applying for teaching jobs, and keeping up with my two-and-a-half year old.  The weekend was very full of activities and went by very quickly as well.  And yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary (Hooray!  I love him SO much!).  
So, I apologize.  Will you forgive me? Please?  Here are the newest items listed in my Etsy shop:

 And for all the cat lovers out there:

I have LOTS more photographs to share with you during this week.  I promise to post more regularly :)  Thanks for checking out the blog!

My first Treasury on Etsy!

The Female Photographers of Etsy (fpoe) are having a treasury blitz from noon to 2 today, and I decided to join in and make my first treasury (EVER!).  Here's the link for my "For the love of flowers..." treasury.  Please check it out and show some love to my fellow Etsians!  There are SO many talented people on Etsy!

Almost missed posting...

I apologize for blogging so late on Sunday.  My family and I had a busy weekend...we went to the zoo on Saturday (it was SO stinkin' hot!!!) and church, an art fair, and grocery shopping today.  So, posting was set off to the side, until now...

I have one image to share, and it is my newest listing in my Etsy shop (it's part of my BLACK AND WHITE Sale, so it's 10% off).  I took it last weekend while visiting my Mom.  Enjoy!

I have some more photos from my Mother's garden to put up on the blog and, then, some new "projects" to share with you in the coming days.  Keep an eye out for updates at Maria Rose!
