When blogs go silent.


What does it mean...when a blog goes idle?  The silence.

At times it simply means life happened.  Nothing more, nothing less.

Reality creeps up on us, and sometimes we stumble and fall.  Last autumn we bid farewell to a dear friend and JunkFest partner as she made her journey from this existence to the next.  Her creative touch, business sense, and way with words will most certainly be missed.

So the silence comes as a need to be more involved in our own personal priorities.  And along the way we have picked ourselves up and marched on, and planning for the next JunkFest is well under way.  Whether there will be tons of blog posts...well, we make no promises.

Are you Ready?


Woo Hoo!
Seriously.

Or your trailer!…Get your trailer ready!

... AND maybe your friend's car or your husband's truck!
Make it a long box, just to be on the safe side.

See you soon!   ;)
