Thank you very much for your kind comments regarding Owen, I'm happy to report that he was smiling when I picked him up yesterday :D The school, and in particular, Owen's marvellous Form Tutor, are monitoring the situation so I am allowing myself to be cautiously optimistic.
I hope you like my assortment of cards today...

I'm feeling blue today, Owen is having problems with another boy at school, which for a mother, is just heartbreaking. He is kind, gentle and respectful, albeit overly sensitive (like his mother!) and the thought of him being unhappy is simply unbearable :(
I need to apologise again for the lack of activity here on the blog and on all our other social media outlets, I'm a terrible host! I can only reiterate that Clearly Besotted is an extension of my hobby and not a fully fledged business. My full time job is being a mother and I am ashamed to admit that I neglected this role when first getting Clearly Besotted up and running. I made the decision to cut back on the non-essential elements of Clearly Besotted after a very severe ultimatum from my husband several months ago, blogging and social media was unfortunately part of the cull! I love that Clearly Besotted is very small and manageable, which makes me appreciate my few valuable customers all the more! In light of this, I hope you can forgive me for being an absent blogger, thank you :)
Back to business, there are eight new stamp sets, all with coordinating die collections on the way this month, and here's a little peek...
