That's right, my friends; the end of my self-imposed sabbatical... IS NIGH.

[And there was MUCH rejoicing... I hope?]

This post is not my official return, but I wanted to check in to assure you all that I am well - very, very well, in fact - and this little break has been everything I'd hoped for and more.

John and I have used this time to take on some monster projects, so I've actually been busier than ever during my "down time" - but in a good way. I'm looking forward to showing you all our accomplishments, along with step-by-step DIY tutorials for a few of the ones I'm most proud of.

It's been my unofficial goal to resume posting here in time for Dragon Con, assuming I was ready and finished with everything I wanted to do, and so far we're right on track. I hope to debut my finished costume (which I am frantically working on now) within the next two weeks, just before DC, and you can expect my usual marathon posts during and after the con with all my official coverage. (Who's excited? THIS GIRL.) After that, at the beginning of next month, I'm hoping life and posting here on Epbot will be back to normal - only better.

Thank you all for being so patient and supportive during my time away. I admit I haven't read your comments on my last post yet, and I've been completely ignoring e-mail (sorry!) - but from the snippets I've seen over on Cake Wrecks and Facebook and Twitter, I'm going to be a sobby sob-fest when I go catch up. Between those and the snail-mailed notes and little surprise gifts and the occasional e-mail John makes me read, I've been reminded many times these past weeks why the Epbot community has been my joy and passion online from the start, and that I could never stay away for long.

SO, just a little while longer, k? And then we're gonna par-TAY. Promise. ;)

'Til then,

- Jen
