Sharon!!! Thank you so much!! So awesome that you landed here from a search!! And yes! I do know you from IG and I'm so glad you got to see my finished product, because I don't think I posted it there. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will again!
We're officially in the Christmas season, which makes me beyond giddy. I mean, Thanksgiving is fantastic with all the food and pumpkin pie and all....but, Christmas. Lately, I've been stitching some seriously big pieces, and I needed a break from all that. So, I decided I needed to incorporate some... Continue reading

Did anyone else have the same reaction as I did when I turned my planner page this month? "Wait. What?!" That's what I said last Monday. Aloud. At my desk. At work. People stopped and stared. As if Mondays aren't bad enough. I mean, clearly, 1 November comes after 31... Continue reading

Thanks, Cat!! Haha - my legwarmers are awesome. Just sayin'. :-)
Thanks, Robin!!
Thanks, Beth! I'm SO happy with how it turned out!!
Thank you, Marie! These are wonderful, and I look forward to seeing your DD album this year! Yours is always one of my favorites.
Well, friends, it's officially fall, which means it's almost hibernation season. It was downright windy and chilly last night, and I'm not happy about it. The only thing good about fall is the clothes. Well, and pumpkin spice bread. And boots. I wore my black boots on Friday for the... Continue reading

I think most of the world calls this Italian ice, not water ice, but really, it's wooder ice. I'm from Philly, and that's how you pronounce it, otherwise no one knows that you're talking about. In fact, since I've moved from the Philly area, it's the one word I say... Continue reading

Hello everyone! Very quick post today to let you know that I'm over at The Indie Chicks with a few fall and Halloween DIY projects that I did with one of my best friends, Julie. She is one of the owners and writers for this online magazine. I hope you'll... Continue reading

Well, I found my f-up, and I'm not happy about the amount of work i'll have to do to fix it....but i can't leave it!!! UGH. the trials and tribulations of OCD tendencies!! haha! Seems we all have at least one airport that gives us trouble!!! Yours are Dallas and Charlotte (I've never been through either), and mine is O'Hare. I never have a good experience at O'Hare. Ever! And, this was the second time in the last 5-6 years that that same scenario happened to me. So irritating!!
Thanks, Robin!! I don't think I've ever had a pumpkin roll - but I saw that Starbucks has their pumpkin scones out already, so I might have to make some gluten-free ones for myself!!
Thanks, Beth!! I'm so glad you stopped by & got a laugh today!! I hope you had a great day!!
You guys! September is upon us! It's Africa hot out there....and I just choked on a cubic foot of humidity. But fear not - the stores are filled to the brim with pumpkins and witches and black cats and skulls, so cooler weather is on the horizon. Well, hopefully. At... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! O'Hare is seriously the worst. I have never had a pleasant experience when I have to go through that airport. I hope you can avoid it forever! I used the called for DMC for the grey of the roof - the silk that I'm using for the patches/holes is the one I'm obsessed with - it's called Acorn Woods. I got all the Silk'n Colors that are listed on the graph, but they're not all really necessary.
Here we are, at the end of August. Next week is 1 September. I could cry, if it weren't for the fact that I love fall clothes (but not the cooler temps), and that flare jeans are coming back in style. Thank Jesus. I love me some flares (Gap Long... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin!! The stores really are pushing the seasons, aren't they?! It's kinda out of control. I've been seeing back to school commercials since right after the 4th, and I cried for all the teachers and parents who still had their entire summer left before having to worry about that! Stay cool!!

How how how how HOW is it August??? HOW. I saw this in Michaels on Friday and wept. I mean, I get it. We crafters have to stay a season ahead, and I tend to stitch Christmas things year-round which is ironically ok in my brain, but for some reason,... Continue reading
