Two weeks ago we said "goodbye" to Von who has been a stalwart of Artful Times since its conception. Thank you Von for all the hard work you have put into this blog and for commenting to the very end. I wish you well in your new venture and hope it all works out for you,
Well, the prospect of running a challenge blog on my own was a bit daunting to say the least. Von had given me plenty of warning that she was going to finish, in fact she extended the date by another month to give me even more time to think about it. Do I carry on alone, I can't let the followers down, do I get someone else in - what? Who else will put up with me and my last minute postings?
Perhaps I should not have put in that last sentence. Why you ask? Because someone has offered to help me out for a while and I am sure you will all be as delighted as I am to welcome (fanfare of trumpets) ... Sam.
