Hooked rug

Many long years ago I started a project. I then had a baby and another. Then one day while out digging in our 3 car garage that doesn't house a car because it's so full I found... the project. After some youtube to remember how and some mistakes I started again. A little creativity everyday is all I ask. Today it was accomplished one strip at a time.

A year

It's been a year since we lost my mom. Cancer is the hidden enemy.  Lost my dad to the same menace.  It's hard to fight an enemy you can't see.   Life is a river to fight is to swim up stream.  I choose to go with the current.  The lessons mom taught me was to love well, accept others, and to look for the best in every situation.  Of course the most important was to eat cake.  It was her final meal, white cake with raspberry filling, and buttercream frosting.  So in her memory we did a little baking ;) Cheers Mom and Dad.

A bag a week

My new years challange is a bag a week to the garbage or the second hand store. So far I am on track!

I love that when I look in our messy hat bucket there are a few momma made hats and mother-in-law AND sister-in-law gifted ones.  Love from the needles.

What could happen if...

What could happen if you made the decision to do a little something creative everyday?

Would a doodle on your work calendar while you are on hold count?

Would a stitch on a embroidery hoop?

What about a poem or a quote?

A photo a day?

I dare you?

Mama made star wars for the win!

Made a headband and some leggings for me and my girl.  Fabric found randomly at Joanne's. Peg legs for the win found at patterns for pirates!

A day to do legos and float some dreams up to the stars. Cold and snowing, I would love to say I cleaned house and I am ready for the week but I didn't and that's ok.
