2012: A Look Back

I can’t believe that 2012 is almost over. I can remember back when I was a young girl I thought a year took forever. I would dream of being grown up and the life I would have. Now that I’m in my 30’s it seems like a year goes by in the blink of an […]

Pink Cookie Cutter Challenge

If you know my friend Cristin of Cristin’s Cookies then you know that she loves pink. It’s only fitting that the cookie cutter she made for her challenge would be pink. She sent each participant a cutter and none of us knew what the cutter was or even if we were getting the same cutter. […]

Inspiration Challenge: December {Winter Wonderland}

I’m back! I’m sorry it’s been awhile since my last post. I have a tendency to think that I can do lots of things at once & it is becoming more & more apparent that I cannot. I may have mentioned it before but I like to sew. I’m kind of a newbie to sewing […]
