As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu
Contrary to what it may seem.. I'm still alive and around. I'm SO sorry for not updating my blog for a while now. Many people have asked me to continue.. and insha'Allah I hope to. And thank you to those who have continued to drop by, and left comments.. I will get to them!!

Here are a few things I hope to post about in the very near future:
- a new swap (around Jan/Feb)
- a project to help some orphan boys in Africa (I may go there in the summer, so this it the perfect opportunity to get things rolling)
- I've finally opened an Etsy store, and hope to get more things on there: Like custom (meaning my own designs) abayas, skirts, dolls, etc.
- new recipes! I already have a snowman one I'll post soon, insha'Allah
- crafts/activities for children, now that I have my nephews back to have fun with
- I have a request for Islamic book reviews, so I'll get to that too
- continue my Friday Hadith

.... and to read all those wonderful blogs I used to!

Bwahhahahahaa @ Lazarus!

Yay Farhana! I love your blog! I still refer to some of the older posts for craft ideas and recipes.

I kind of flaked out on the last swap :( but I'm looking forward to the new one!

Hope you are well sis
I was just going through the comments on my blog after ages, and thought to check out if you were still blogging and to pass a salam.
Subhannallah, a suprise to find a fresh faced post!!
Hope all is well with you inshaAllah :)

Asalaamu Alaikum

I met sketched soul in real life! lol It was so funny what you said about RIS and Journey of Faith having such different clientele. I would have bought one of your cupcakes but I don't use straight pins for my hijab, they were adorable. Its good to see you back in the virtual world too.

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dearest sisters,

Wow.. you guys keep me busy huh..haha Thank you so much for the comments :)

LOl Aishah.. I have returned, alhumduliLlah.. now hopefully I can stay! I totally miss you *still praying you move to Canada!*

Aww thanks so much Hijabi Apprentice!! I look forward to having you join us next swap. I'm still enjoying the tea you sent me (it's for special days)

Under Cover Sis.. alhumduliLlah - isn't it great when Allah just makes things happen that way. So you're definitely someone I don't wanna lose - insha'Allah I see lots more of you :)

Eva thank you, thank you. I am SO delighted to finally have met YOU! (and sister C).. what's weird is I've seen C so many other times.. if only I knew!! I look forward to meeting you again insha'Allah - are you up for a get together? Maybe a sisters party around April?

LOL Fruitfusion..thank you dear! :) It's wonderful to see you too.

C... haha, it's true though. I love the different people - usually it depends on who the speakers are.
Thank you.. I'm glad you liked the cupcakes. AlhumduliLlah they did pretty good..I sold 22 (which is 21 more than I though would go).. so now I have to make more for the online shop. - but I do have fun making them.

Wonderful to see you posting!! I'm up for the next swap whenever you get it going! I'm also back to blogging over at amira's kitchen... I have been super busy with babies and domestic life in general but I really want to get back into the community that was so supportive when I converted. I hope to be blogging daily insha-Allah :-)

As-salaamu'alaykum AMIRA!!
OH my.. I have been wondering where you've been! AlhumduliLlah, it's SO nice to 'see' you again! And I'm very glad you're back to blogging too.. I shall check things out.

Thanks for the visit! :)

Love Farh
