First off, I have to apologize for disappearing on you guys for half a month (yikes, was it really that long? Sorry…) My family had a bit of a crisis, but thank God everyone is healthy and happy once again. I was constantly thinking about getting back to my readers during my absence. But day after day was continually filled with chaos, and I never got the chance.
I hated leaving you for so long. But imagine my delighted surprise when I (finally) got the chance to log back on, only to see comments and followers galore.
Thanks you guys… I totally needed that. =} Your support buoys my spirits more than you know. Ok, let’s get on with the tutorial before I start blubbering over my keyboard. I could just see myself shorting out my laptop. No bueno.
Anyone who knew me as child would tell you that growing up, I was convinced that I was Ariel from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. My mom was a model back in the day, and it definitely didn’t help with my delusion imagination when she had a professional mermaid costume created just for me. There was even a phase where I refused to enter the bathtub unless I was allowed to wear my rubber flippers so I could flop around like a mermaid while bathing (Dear God, please refrain from repeating that particular behavior with my daughter).
