The Great Craft Room Reorg

The Great Craft Room Reorg

Remember when I told you as part of my 2014 Things that I would pick a room each month and organize it? And then I wrote that post about The Great Declutter with a plan of attack? Last month I had enough of the chaos in my craft room and got to work. Folks will try to tell you that it’s OK for a craft room to be cluttered and chaotic but it was putting […]

I’m Still Hexed – A Work in Progress

I’m Still Hexed – A Work in Progress

A little over a year ago I shared a new quilting project with you–a project where I will handsew the entire quilt top. I have to admit that I’m a bit shocked that I’m still creating these hexies and how far I’ve come. Lisa is also working on a hexie quilt and I think that this is what has kept me going. Plus it keeps my hands busy while watching mindless TV in the evenings […]

Pin It and Do It October – Again

Pin It and Do It October – Again

I had planned for this second Pin it and Do it post to be a crafty post but then I ended up going back to Pinterest for some dinner inspiration. Sorry for the lack of pictures–I did take iphone pics, but you’re better off without seeing them. Sirloin Beef Tips from Texas Roadhouse at Home (My pin).  So the picture looks a bit like a mess but these sirloin tips were absolutely delicious, easy to […]

Right Now I Am… [7.28.2013]

Right Now I Am…  [7.28.2013]

Didja miss me? I started thinking halfway through last week that some of y’all who don’t follow me on other social media outlets might have wondered if I went into labor but my phone died and I couldn’t be bothered to turn it back on to tell you differently. In short we took a roadtrip to Taos, New Mexico and Durango, Colorado. It was awesome and I hope to blog about it soon. You know–right […]

Pin it and Do it Progress – May 2013

Pin it and Do it Progress – May 2013

I had big plans for May. I swear I did! So far I’ve finished five pins and put a few more into motion, which doesn’t feel like much, but I keep reminding myself that there’s still a few more days left in the month. Nevermind that we’ll be out of town for most of Memorial Day weekend. So it goes, right? May Pin it and Do it has been mostly success so far with a […]

On A Day To Myself

On A Day To Myself

With Mother’s Day around the corner, possible Mother’s Day gifts have been on my mind. I don’t normally ask for much in the way of gifts and since becoming a mother one of the things that has popped into my head is “time to myself.” But then I immediately feel guilty for wanting to spend time by myself on a day that is celebrating my bond with my daughter? And if you are a mom […]

Project Life 2013: Weeks 5-8

Remember when I told you guys that I started Project Life and it was going to be a super duper easy solution to all of my scrapbooking problems? Bahahahaha. Honestly I think I have a good excuse given what happened during the last week of January and the first week of February–how do you carry on Project Life when your family’s insides are aching?  But I printed the pictures, I even cut them up, and […]
