Crafty Christmas Gift

Well, my last crafty Christmas gift is done for this year. I'm so excited that I got all my shopping and crafting done early this year :D. It gives me more time to wrap up the gifts really pretty....hummm, maybe, we'll see, LOL.

Man, though, did I want to take my coffee and cuddle up on the sofa with my daughter this afternoon after I was done making this throw blanket but I resisted well.

Crafter Mojo is back....

Well I kinda lost touch of my crafty/artsy side and threw everything on the back burner. Even, sadly, my Etsy shop and this blog. Which thanks to my cafemom team they pointed out some fixer uppers to make the shop better. I just still need to take the advice into action...but procrastination and whatever is keeping me from doing so. UGH!. I really need to straighten up and get out of this funk. But I think the mojo is starting to come back....

Well the mojo seem to have started coming back in the spirit of making my daughters Halloween costume. A tutu and butterfly wings. She was just to cute for words (I know a bias mom moment, LOL). Then also due to the holidays in trying to save a little money and also to make gifts more personal I've decided to throw my hands into making those neat felt food I kept seeing online. They were so simple and fast to make, it got me excited again to be crafting. So here's the recent project I did. I apologize for the horrible photos of the felt foods but right now I can't find my USB cord for my cam. so I took these with my cell phone. (man I would like to know where that cord is!!! LOL)

Well since my move i just haven't had much time, desire, let alone any good updates to blog. I'm also thinking on cutting out my childrens blog and just keep this one. I have other networking groups to keep the close family and friends updated on em'. I mean hey, in great news, I have made 2 sales with in a month time :D.

I should really get involved with the public world more so I can really get some cash in these pockets. I also need to get out of this rut...get back to crafting which I'm sure will get me back to blogging here :p

My RockStar :P

So I've been meaning to give a little promo to my hubby's recent now mastered CD. With the years he's been working on this project and it is finally finished. I'm very proud of him and yet glad it's done, LOL. Now his next step is productions for sales and getting notice in the public. If any of my readers are interested in listening to his sound here is his link . Feel free to leave a comment and share your critizism (good or bad).

Hello Virginia

So, We made it cross country and what a trip it was. Exhausting as well. We left WA. April 4th and took 2 weeks road tripping with seeing family on the way. Getting us here April 20th. 2 little ones and a dog...I'm sure you can imagine the trip. Though I swear my bigger problem child was my husband and his crankiness with the kids when they would get into it....

The trip was fun though. It made the move feel more like a vacation for awhile there. The kids got spoiled with lots of Easter candy (being Easter was the holiday on our trip). Which I'm still getting sick of seeing all the candy, LOL. For this mama who needs to loose weight, it's hard when you have chocolate eggs and rabbits over taking your kitchen pantry. On the trip it seemed we drove threw nearly the 4 seasons with Washington, Cali, and Colorado spring rain, Oregon, Missouri and Tennessee had the hot summer like weather and we even dealt with Snow in some was crazy! Man did it mess with my Allergies and Asthma but I did good staying on top of my meds. Now though the trip was fun, reality hit when we walked into our new home. A beautiful home at that but to have moved was hard on me emotionally. To leave so many great friends and the best supportive command my husband was stationed to yet. To have to watch my 5yr not understand why he had to leave his school and friends. It's hard to start all over and be peachy about it. But so far we are doing our best.

the new house

Now almost 4 weeks here we are now settling in more. Still have some minor decorating to do around the house like window treatments and picture hang but those are so easy to get done. We've found a church. I've transferred my Curves membership here so I can start loosing all the travel weight plus more. I've also joined a few local groups online so I can hopefully meet folks around here (I've made some of my greatest friends online in the past so maybe I can make new ones again). This weekend should prove interesting as Matthew has invited a co-worker and his family over for dinner. I truly hope it goes well. Though I'm sure it will and if it doesn't OH WELL cos my life will go on.
Which, meanwhile, as life goes on I want to get back to my crafting. I've been itching to do so... especially painting this time around. I need to also reopen shop, so I set the date of May 30th for my Grand Reopening! I'm hoping to get new items in there and get business up and running like crazy :). So with all this in mind I will sign off and get to crackin' on some craftin', LOL.

So with all the stress and busy, busy,'s been the reason I've been very quiet online. Just haven't had the time but to check and reply emails. Crazy. In the mean time though I wanted to share that all items in my shop has FREE SHIPPING till the 27th. Well readers gotta get back to my reality....See you in VA next month.
