If you are happy and you know it…

I found myself smiling last night.  Was it because I was driving in the car that I bought recently that I feel super safe in, perhaps.  Or was it because I just finished crafting with my friend, making ornaments for our Christmas trees, possibly.  I was heading home to my home, which is my safe… Continue reading If you are happy and you know it…

Numerous times, I have sat at my computer over the last month to write.  I started with a few words on the page, but ended up with a pretty much blank page.  It has been frustrating that words have been escaping me over the last month or so.  In the past, words have come so… Continue reading Bella Babbling

The Crafting Duo

I spent most of the weekend buried in fabric and thread.  But most importantly, I had my daughter by my side. Friday evening, we unburied the sewing machine from hibernation. It is an heirloom piece, a gift that was given to me by my mother-in-law when she received an upgrade a few years ago.  A… Continue reading The Crafting Duo
