Welcome & Disclaimer

Hello & welcome to SuthrnPrincess Tuts. I am so excited that you stopped in to see what I have made with the gorgeous tubes and fabby kits that are out there. You will find FTU & PTU kits as well as FTU & PTU Tubes are used in my tutorials. If you run into a problem on a tut please feel free to email me and I will help if I can. My use of a FTU tube does not give you permission to use it. I have obtained permission either from the artist themselves or through a group to use their artwork. You need to personally contact them to obtain permission before using.

**Disclaimer**

The tuts contained within this blog are my own creation. They came from my brain and were created by my own hand. Any resemblance to the works of others is completely coincidental.

postheadericon News....

Oh wow! Blogger sure has changed since the last time I was here. I am so sorry that it has been this long. There has literally been a ton of things happening all at once in our family. First we found out at the end of February that George's (my live-in boyfriend of 4 years and father to my littlest) oldest sister Elizabeth was losing her fight with cancer. A week later (the first week of March) we said good-bye to a beautiful woman and mother who was 32. The week following her memorial service the father of Julie, my best friend for the last 20 years, and I hope the next 20, passed away. The very next week my 11 year old had surgery. He was born with a cleft lip and palate. The surgery took over twice as long and we found out today that the results failed miserably. He now has a huge whole in his palate all the way into his sinus cavity. He has been on a liquid diet since his surgery. Today we got the go ahead for a little bit harder foods but still nothing like a real meal. He is not allowed to return to school because of this diet. They will be fitting him for a prostetic palate and doing another surgery in 6 months.

I just really wanted to update everyone and say that I have NOT abandoned my blog. I also took over a cub scout den recently. This has been taking up some of my time as I had to do training and I had to make plans as to what to work on with the kids. It really and truly is a blessing to be able to work with these boys.

I wish you all a blessed week. BB)O(
