One year and counting…..

Well, a year ago today, I started this blog.  Originally, I started the blog to only talk about my little business…selling woolies to go with cloth diapers.  But it didn’t end up exactly that way.   I guess, like anything else, it evolved into something else….a little bit of everything.  I’m not sure what my blog is about…a little bit of everything…sort of like my life, my talents and my goals.

A lot has happened in a year…I just turned 42…wow, 42…that seems old.  But I guess it also seems young.

Anyway..the painting of the Starry Night Walls continues…as does life….

Starry Night Continues….

I’ve been working on a large mural in the stairway.  It is going to be a twist on Van Gogh’s Starry Night.  I fear it may take me a very long time to finish..but I am progressing slowly.  The tricky part is the very large wall going upstairs….it is very hard to reach and will be quite a challenge.  I will have to get creative with different ways of painting it.  I’m hoping a paintbrush taped to a long stick may do the trick, though I don’t think that will be the best option.  I don’t want to have to mess with scaffolding or anything like that….we will see….


Somehow I always seem to end up sewing monkeys.  When it comes to my woolies, monkeys definitely seem to be the most popular design.  And I do like them.  And they are fun to make.  And they are cute.  So, monkeys it is…


We have finally had a snowstorm worth writing about!  This is probably the biggest storm we have had since we have lived in our new house!  No school today!  And no time to sew or do any laundry!  Oh well…we played outside for about two hours and then Christopher took the kids sledding!
