Let’s just pretend that the entire month of January is appropriate for talking about resolutions and goals, ok? It still counts as the start of the new year, even if there are only three days left in the month… Once again, I didn’t make a long list of resolutions for the new year, but I… Continue reading 2016 Crafty Resolutions

At the Music City Modern Quilt Guild meeting last weekend, we had an open sew and were encouraged to make name tags. I definitely appreciated an excuse to get my sewing machine up and running again, and a simple mini project was just what I needed. I brought some scraps to make a name tag… Continue reading Polaroid Name Tags
Before the move in December, we noticed that Cora was leaving messes in odd places, but we chalked it up to anxiety during the packing process. When we noticed blood in her urine, we took her to the vet but they agreed it was probably stress and didn’t have enough time to get a urine… Continue reading Meow Monday: The Many Misadventures of Cora
