These New Cards are the Bomb Diggity

These New Cards are the Bomb Diggity

I finally ran out of business cards, and it’s like my birthday and Christmas all rolled up into one. I’ve been itching to change up my business cards for a while now, but budgeting reasons made sure that I finished the ones I had first. I wanted to make sure that this batch could double as cards for the business and also for packaging for my cat butts and other smaller items… working smarter and not harder here.


6 Reasons Crocheters Should Bring Knitting on Everyday Adventures

6 Reasons Crocheters Should Bring Knitting on Everyday Adventures

I took Kiddo to the orthodontist yesterday, and brought my knitting with me. I’ve been doing that lately. I do a lot of running around and have been making sure I have some knitting with me. All I wanted to do was finish casting on 92 stitches and use the long tail cast on (because I can finally do it, but mess up the length on the tail every time…). I was hoping to not mess up. (I did.) The waiting room was packed full of kids with braces and their parents. I felt simultaneously awesome and awkward just knitting away.


This Monster Puppet Doll Is Now a Floating Head

This Monster Puppet Doll Is Now a Floating Head

There is so much laughing and funny looks around here. This puppet has been pretty fun to make, and it’s cracking me up. She’s been out on the coffee table for a few weeks now. No matter how many times I see her, it’s still a little unsettling that there’s a head just laying there. She’s waiting for a body… I have to make her a tentacle body like the original puppet, and I think I’ll add a human body too (I’ll figure out how to make them interchangeable). It’s going to be awesome. But for now, she’s just a floating head; hanging out on the coffee table for us to play with.


There Was Working On The Weekend, And It Was Sucking My Life Force Dry

There Was Working On The Weekend, And It Was Sucking My Life Force Dry

Weekends are a really important for resting. Working through the weekends wasn’t resting. Never taking a day “off” until I absolutely had to… wasn’t resting. Always feeling behind because there was no resting… isn’t resting. I have kids that need me to taxi them everywhere. We have Mondays off of extra curricular activities. Trying to work through all of that without a break makes for stress and incomplete work. Taking a break is a good thing.
