Commitment issues

If you ask me for my favorite color, breakfast, food, movie, book, author, season, song, number, place, person, and so on you might be frustrated with my answer. I don't have a favorite and even if I do it is only for a short amount of time. I like to dabble in everything, try it… Continue reading Commitment issues

Thrifty Finds

This month I turned to Nextdoor and Facebook Market for these gently used or unwanted items. Why thrift?

Baby Blankets

I began to crotchet when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, a little more than 18 years ago. My first serious project was a baby blanket of a light pink color.

It… Continue reading Project Jewelry Day 1

Mosaic Tree: Part 3 Before the Grout

Tree Mosaic by canelaajena I've obsessed over these two mosaic projects (the tree and the bottle in the back) since I started them earlier this week. It's easier now to contiouslsy work on a project since I set up a work place in my bedroom. It isn't ideal for cleanliness, but it's secluded to a… Continue reading Mosaic Tree: Part 3 Before the Grout
