Because it’s Draw a Bird Day! I know, I know – totally random. But, it’s fun and sweet and there is a great story (or urban legend) behind it. Read more on how the day got started over at the Craft of Laughter blog, where you can also download a copy of my bird to color in yourself!
Hey guys and gals! Just a quick note that if you’ve tried to make purchases from my store in the last few weeks and the Paypal end of things failed, it is all FIXED now. 🙂 Back to your regularly scheduled fiber-browsing!
The New Year is here and with it comes so many hopes, ideas, dreams, and goals that renew in my heart. I’m not one for “resolutions”, or even new goals for the year, per say. Instead, I am frequently (monthly and weekly) re-evaluating what my goals regularly so that I am continually moving towards where I want to be, chasing that “future self.” One thing that I do love, though, is choosing a theme for the year. At the end of the
With all the Holiday Event planning, Thanksgiving, upcoming Christmas, school holiday activities, etc, etc, etc, etc…. I’m starting to feel the drain. It’s exhausting trying to keep up with so much! Now that Thanksgiving has moved to the past, I can start looking forward to the rest of the year. I had been ahead on my holiday gift knitting, but in the last week, I’ve fallen woefully behind. But, I refuse to let the external crazy make me internally nuts.
Head over to the Facebook page for a sprinkling of giveaways all day!

I’m up early, ready to start my day of baking and slaving in the kitchen. But, oh how I prepare my meals with love and joy, my way of saying thanks to my family for putting up with me all the rest of the year. But, I wanted to take a moment today, my dear friends, to thank all of you. Your support of my work, your sweet comments all this past week, and the constant love you show me
I was reading over on the Craft of Laughter about giving from the heart with handmade love or simple acts of kindness; it is definitely what has been on my mind this week. With the holidays approaching, it can be overwhelming, to say the least, thinking about all the stuff that we need to do, what we need to buy, what to give, etc, etc. But, just like that blog post says, giving can be so beautifully simple and sweet
My holiday and work plans have not … well, gone as planned. Back on October 27, my husband decided to take a little fall off his bicycle which resulted in, what I fondly call, a dum-dum wound (you might recognize that phrase from Lethal Weapon 3). Basically, the dear man fell and tore every ligament in his thumb meaning that he was in surgery three days later. While that in and of itself hasn’t been difficult, the short-term disability he
It was fun having a Q&A with Kara Gott Warner, executive editor of Creative Knitting magazine, about my studio space and workflow. We chatted about how I keep things straight, what inspires me, and how I flow through the work day. Go read that blog post and then come right back! I thought I’d expand on that a bit for you guys and show you the down-and-dirty details of my entire space. As an editor, writer, designer, and hobbyist photographer,
