So last night I took a deep breath and was happy for what I had. I may not be perfect, but at the same time, I'm pretty sure there was another reason Donna Reed was filmed in black and white (aside from there being no such thing as technicolor.) As we all know by now, … Continue reading More Introspection…this time with Rabbit Holes.
As I look at my daughter in her brother’s hand me down Buzz Lightyear T-shirt, her punk plaid skinny pants, and super poof grey mini tutu; with hair she hasn’t let me brush since yesterday and a wild look in her eye like she’s about to take over the world. I think to myself: "is … Continue reading Introspection
YouTube has been on my to do list for a while, when we originally started coming up with ways to make my little home-based business into an empire (if you're gonna go, go big.) One of the things I'm passionate about is cloth diapering, and much like my crocheting, it makes my husband grind his … Continue reading New YouTube Requirements

After some of the usual comparison shopping, a new washer would have cost me, literally, a month's rent. My husband … Continue reading Laundry List

Ordinarily I would post about something besides my Etsy store, but I'm particularly proud of this. My husband and I spent a few hours last night creating new products for Valentine's Day and the upcoming St. Patrick's Day. My husband has been after me for some time now to move some of the hats I make over … Continue reading Crochet Crossover

This is the excerpt for your very first post.
