Everyday is an Adventure

I just thought I would touch base with everyone on a more personal level! I was looking through my photos and I was being drawn to the beautiful blue skies, that I am so lucky to have about 90% of the time. Of course just with everything~ it holds many different looks. That BLUE though…..no […]

Quilters Unite To Grant Wishes To Each Other.

This is a Instagram event that usually happens in the Fall every year. I have participated in the last three years, well I guess since I started on IG. It was one of the fun events that brought me new friends and wonderful scraps and UFO projects that needed love. I am always so touched […]

Red Feather Project

March has been a very busy month for me and I have only just had the time to really sit down and catch up on so many things. I realize that with the changing of seasons comes the changing of my schedule. I am the most productive in the cool of Fall and the cold […]

Where has the time gone?

I cannot believe how quickly time has gotten away from me. I remember the snow taking forever to melt and Spring coming so late. Then BAM it was Summer and the never ending smoke. I know that I told more then one person “This must be how a ham feels in the smoke house!” It […]

Kindness

I found this in my the local dollar shop awhile back and it got me to thinking! Always heart warming to see kindness being shared. Not for the sake of glory or brownie points but from the kindness of ones heart. They were placed all over the store. How refreshing it was to see this […]

Reuse, Re-purpose and Recycle….

I have been an advocate of this philosophy all my life. I have at ever opportunity implemented this lifestyle. Most often it has popped up in my crafting; whether for a school drive or as a Librarian: with everything in between. I came across this swap on my Instagram feed and I could not pass […]

But definitely my first finish. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was so looking forward to getting the book and joining in. I ordered the […]

Winter is here in full force

I love this photo! It is so peaceful and yet ominous……like I can feel the cold wind as it blows. I am a person who loves all my seasons, yes even Winter. I have Winter babies so we have in the past done lots of wintery things. I am actually really happy with all the […]

Instagram Swaps. How many is too many?

I have found that I have a lot ofย  Instagram Swaps going and a QAL……. what have I done. Bahaha ( insert evil nervous laugh ). The beautiful pillow in the above picture is one that I received in the #owlswap. This is so beautiful! The workmanship in the cross stitching is just prefect. I […]
