About Me

I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

Feels like springtime

It's been such a long time for me away from the blog. But lately I've been lurking on everyone else's blogs, and decided it was time to post again on my own. I've had a busy busy year with the birth of our third child just this January. He is adorable but with seven years between him and his closest sibling you forget how much work newborns are. Well worth it though.

Here is my large project for the year Mirabilia's Santa. I am doing this for a friend in exchange for her tutoring my oldest child in math. This is about 2 months worth of work on it. I like it so far and I'm saving the beading (and all the white) for last.

And this is my small easy project that I work on just to relax. It is Bent Creek's "Quaker star". The outer star part of it is giving me fits though and I hate hate hate frogging, I'm trying to figure out a way to avoid having to rip out the top point of the star.

That's it for now. I am so enjoying getting back to reading everyone else blogs. Forgive me if I don't comment as much as I should. Most of the times I'm reading them on my phone while feeding new baby. And after posting this I realized my photos were all out of order and I can't get thrm to move so forgive me ths too...sigh my laptop was down and I was trying to use my phone but I'm not loving said phone right now. ...Grrrr!

Glad to have you back!! Congratulations on the birth of your baby. I know what you mean. My grandson turned 8 in August and his little sister was born last June! You are working on some great projects. Your friend better be a good tutor for all the work you are putting into that beautiful Santa.

Both of your projects look great. It does look like you could fix the top of the star I bet. Congratulations on your new baby.
