crafting journal

so after thinking and talking to other I have decided that I desperatly need to make a crafters journal to put all the ideas in my head. I am going to make a fabric cover for a composition book. I will work on that today and then I will post how it looks and all that fun stuff tonight or tomorrow.

happy crafting

christmas time

so its getting to be that time of year and I thought I better get cracking and make some cards to put up in my store. So I made a rough draft. whatcha think??? I personally lean toward the non-traditional colors of hot pink, black and bright green but I don't think I did to bad!!

my table

I have a rather long table in my craft room. its 7.5 feet by 3.5 feet so one would think that i have more then enough room to craft. Nope I don't. one side has my sewing/embroidery machine and the serger and the other side I set up to have a cutting area/paper craft area. On this rather large table as I stand here and type (yep stand no sitting for me) I count 7 projects started and this isn't even counting the many that aren't on the table. If I dig around in the many piles I have scattered through around I am sure I would find more. This is were the obsessive part comes into play. I can't decide what to do. I have way to many ideas and not enough time in the day to do them all. What I really need to do I think is write these things done but then I would be organized and I can't craft organized. I need to have a chaotic mess I think. I hope I am not alone on this one.

I have a slight obsession for Etsy. I love that I can go to etsy and find something that I can't find in the store. I can actually find cute things to wear, use, or play with in colors and patterns I like not what some big wig at some company likes. I especially love the stores of my fellow cafemom etsy street teams store. We have such a huge variety of items. Everything from diapers to sweets, bows to ties. You need I bet we have it.

Don't forget to look me up.

Single coaster

So last night I started a quilt with this Amy Butler fabric and I ran short so that project is halted for a few days but I had some scraps left over and not wanting to waste them I decided to make a coaster. I then wondered if anybody would want to buy just 1 coaster. See I have enough for another but not sure if I want to make the match for this fella because then it's not one of a kind. I could probably make 3 more then have a set of 4 but what if a person doesn't need 4. What if there is only 1 person in the family and they never have company? See there really could be a person out there for this 1 coaster!!!


So I started this blog as a shameless promotion for my etsy store, ( by the way its but then realized that maybe somebody would like to here the ramblings of my obsession!!!

First a little intro about myself. I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 little men. Noah is 2 years 8 months going on 5 and Julius is 14 months going on 3. These little boys keep me busy but when I have a spare minute I am crafting.

Right now other then the boys life is crazy. This past summer our house got flooded. We got a whole lotta water. A full basement and 6 feet on the main floor. So I will probably be sharing some of that with everybody since it's a major part of my life right now and we are finally getting to the fun part (you know when its getting soooooo very close to being normal)
