My First Blog!

Ok, so this is my very first blog ever and I'm super excited! I've wanted to start a blog for a while now, but haven't gotten around to it. Been too busy with life and all. You know how it is.

But now I'm here and committed to post on a regular basis.

So what's up with me now? I'm just getting ready to start planning for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer again this year. It will be my third on the Teachers for Ta Ta's team. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to do it again this year, but I was convinced by several people that it was important that I do it. And I finally agreed. I'll hopefully start training soon. I've been pretty much a slug all winter. I've become addicted to the heating pad and as soon as I sit down on the couch, the cat jumps on me and it's an instant "kitty sedative" for me. I zonk out.

I've also been able to finally put together a crafting area for myself in the spare bedroom. This is now to be called the sewing room or crafting room. Hubby wanted it to be a neat and tidy third bedroom, but that just wasn't gonna happen. I couldn't work on crafts down in the freezing cold basement. My fingers were going numb. So here's my new crafting corner. I actually just got a new table which is bigger and more sturdy, so it looks a bit different now. It's great. It's amazing how much an organized space can inspire you to create.

I've just been working on a baby bag for a friend who just had a baby boy. I altered a pattern to make it more baby-bag-like with lots of pockets. I hope it works well for its purpose!

That's about all for now.

Hey! Yesterday I was thinking I need to call you. I also decided to start a blog. But I didn't have time to get it started. And this morning I get an email from you that you just started one. Too funny. So I went off to start mine. It's called House of Krom. I look forward to keeping up with you, and I still have your present and Christmas card ready to mail - ahem.

Shannon, you make me sick how crafty you are because I neither have the patience or talent, so keep it sister. Also, I think your monkey is cute and I don't think that it looks scary, so keep it on the couch staring at EB. You know the name letters that you made for Claudia are her favorite activity center when she wakes up or doesn't want to sleep she just plays with them. Also, would love to see more pict of the house and still waiting for an invite (Claudia loves cats!!!)
