I am NOT just a sewing machine

Looking back at my blog posts over the last few months it might seem to you that I do nothing but sew cute cuddly create-a-creatures.   And although that part of my life and business seems to have grown exponentially and taken up a larger portion of my time – I really have been doing…

Is it really February?

Some people say that as you get older, time seems to go faster.  Well, I am not that old, but I can’t imagine a month flying by faster than this past January.  Despite the weeks of cold weather, in a month that often drags by, I just looked at the calendar and can’t believe that…

Taking a Different Path

I love blogs. I love getting to know people through what they write and post.  I adore tutorials and Pinterest is my new best friend.  But I am also, admittedly, a bit of a scanner. I am sure you are too.  When you read at least 20 blog posts a day, you start to get…

Taking Time to Rest and Recharge

I am a busy person. Most times, if you ask me how things are, I will reply with “busy!” I have endless ideas, often feel like I have endless energy, and I hate sitting still. My idea of a relaxing day is to get in the kitchen and make something, or to go in the…

Meet The New Additions!

There has been a lot of sadness around here lately, but even sadness comes with a measure of joy.  And these two have been my joy:   Meet Albus (above) and Minerva, (also known as Minnie.)  If you are a reader of a certain series of children’s books involving a boy wizard you will probably…

Having More, With Less

We live in a society that constantly tells us that we need MORE.  We need more stuff.  We need a better house.  We need a new car.  We need to upgrade our computer.  We need the newest hand-held tech thingy that everybody else has, and we need to get it BEFORE everybody else does.  We…

The Last Three Weeks

It has been at least three weeks since I have written here, maybe more.  And as hard as I try to keep this blog an integral part of my weeks and days, sometimes life happens. And, after all, it is real life that matters, more than the recording of that life on this screen. The…

The Guitar – and being who we are

There are times when I just can’t sleep.  When that happens, sometimes I read a book.  Sometimes, I clean out my email inbox or Google reader (mind-numbing, right?) Sometimes, I just lie in bed and toss and turn. Other times, I do things like this:   I can only imagine what it would have looked…
