a little blog about crafting, sewing, nothing, & everything.

So fresh and so clean, clean.

So here it is mid-winter in beautiful Tennessee. I'm over it. We don't get snow, we get rain and mush. Occasionally we get ice on our unsalted backroads. It's gross and mean.

My skin, hair, and nails are so dry that no (however copious) amount of lotion or product is going to fix this. It's lame and I'm sick of it. And: Glee is not back on until April. April?

I've decided to start thinking about Spring so I'll be good and ready for March 20th, the official first day of the season. This includes first and foremost: the ever appropriate cleaning. Our house has not gotten as untidy as I would have expected for three ADD crafters like ourselves, but it does deserve a good wipe down. I'm probably going to be putting some supplies for sale on our etsy site in order to declutter.


In other news, I got a cat, who's awesome. Her name is Samwich, or Sammy. This crappy photo is courtesy of my blackberry!

This is what I've been up to lately.



There's a few other embroidery things I've done that aren't pictured. Maybe I'll win the lottery and buy a sweet camera and upload the new pics!

Up next:

Baby stuff for 2 babies I know being borned soonish. I think one is a girl and I know the other is a boy. I have no idea what to make. Suggestions?

Stop me oh, oh stop me. Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before.

Wow, it's been a while since I've updated this thing.

January has been an exciting month for many reasons, but work hasn't been one of them.

December was a great month, full of holiday cheer (booze), parties (booze), and the usual festivities (booze). In light of this, I decided that January would be a detox month, on the way to drinking less during the work-week. That was my new year's resolution.

This has gone pretty well on the days that I've not been stressed out at work. The boo on this is that I seem to be constantly stressed out at work, or have been more so this month. I've had a few irate customers, a few idiot ones, and a co-worker that makes me want to cut myself so far. It seems that the last..8 or 9 days at work have made me want a vodka tonic more than air.

In other news, I'm working on a sweet art project involving embroidery and bleach! Maybe pictures soon (If I can get it in gear!). TheCraftateria has also been doing better this month. I think and hope we're getting more traffic than we did when we first "opened shop". We've got more plans up our sleeves, so stay tuned for that!
