Fly Lady Day 2

Day 1 went well!

I washed the dishes and shined my sink!

Well, its not shiny, but it is clean!
(we have an old scratched up white sink)

A little excitement happened afterwards too...

Fly Lady Day 1

Anywhere I go, people say,
"Wow! You have your hands full!"
And then they ask,
"How do you keep up with all of them?
How do you get anything done?"
I just smile and shrug.
What I really want to say is.......

New Banner and Logo!!

I was looking to re-design my banner and logo for my crocheting business, it's nice to have matching facebook page, blog, etsy, business cards, labels, etc. I needed something I could re-size without losing pixels. I probably could have designed something myself, but I just don't have a lot of free time right now. So I went in search of a graphic designer, hoping to get e decent price.

Wedding Veil

Made a stunning veil for my little sister's wedding.
(Found the pattern in the Interweave Crochet Summer 2009 issue)
The first time I saw the pattern, I knew one day I would make it.
3 years later I offered to make it for my sister and she loved the idea!

Pinterest Project {and more}

I know I'm not the only one who is addicted to pinterest and pins away all sorts of project to do "later". And like many others, I have plenty of DIY projects on my boards to last me a life time!
So I decided I need to actually start making them.
And here is the first project that I made today.
Vintage Lollipop Flower

Baby Legs

Keeping my little chickadees in pants is a feat in it's own.
So I thought some leg warmers would solve this problem.
But they are a bit pricey and hard to find in colors and patterns that I like.
There are plenty of skulls and skeletons around, which I can't stand.
So I figured I could make them myself and found lots of tutorials online.
I liked this one and gave it a try on a pair of socks I already had.
(I skipped steps 2-5)

Aquaponic Garden Update

Mr. Chickadee planted some strawberries, tomatoes and cabbages in the garden yesterday...
He bought the starters at a local street side market,
cleaned the dirt off of them and planted them right into the gravel.

Oodles has happened!

I can't believe how longs it has been since I blogged!!

It has been busy busy busy around here with school, holidays and preparing for a new baby.

I will quickly catch you up to speed on what I've been working on:
  • Moved our "school area" from the living room
and turned one of the bedrooms into an actual school room.
