Well, I made it to December in more or less one piece. The last major draft of my book is finished. It’s with a friend now who is editing it for grammar and mechanics, but the story is done. No more changing it, at least not until a publisher gets a hold of it and… Continue reading Happy Christmas
Yesterday my husband kids and I went and walked through the downtown lights. I love lights, it’s so sparkly and warm and magical. It’s been unseasonably warm here. There’s no snow and the grass is still kind of green. The kids actually played in the park while Brian and I sat in the midst of… Continue reading A Perfect Christmas…
My dear Aunt Clause. She’s too cute. When you have a mother who sews you get a lot of perks. For instance you might get a special visit from Mr. and Mrs. Clause because Mrs. Clause needs a new apron and she has some unique specifications (as you would expect). Most children would consider this… Continue reading Santa Came to Visit
This is amish peanut butter. If you’ve never had amish peanut butter it’s homemade peanut butter mixed with marshmallow cream. It’s fantastic. This was made and given to me, along with some other amazing treats from a coworker of Brian’s. This woman is pretty great; she homeschool’s her kids, works two very demanding jobs and… Continue reading

I know it’s suppose to be Pinterest Wednesday but the project I was working on took quite a bit longer then I anticipated. What you see below is an ordinary Altoids tin… Or is it… It’s actually a tiny little mouse house! Because it’s so little I expected it to go a lot faster but… Continue reading Pinterest Monday.
Christmas has come and gone and it was beautiful and full and crazy and warm and cozy all at once. I enjoyed it immensely and loved all the sewing projects and got so much pleasure out of seeing people open them…. Now I’m done. We still have one family Christmas left and Brian asked me… Continue reading New Year.
Every year around this time I start seeing all the “Don’t take Christ out of Christmas…” posts on Facebook. Which, prompts me to write a post about it on my blog. I’m sorry if you feel you’ve read this before but it’s important. Whether or not a sign in a store says “Happy Holidays” as… Continue reading
Years ago when I first got my sewing machine I made some stockings. A couple were for Brian and I and I sold a few in my Grammy’s shop, I gave a couple away as gifts and that was that. Then I had a son and it was cool because I had an extra stocking,… Continue reading A New Stocking.
