In The Mail! {photo of the day}

Look what arrived in the mail today! Is it terrible to say that I kept having an awful paranoia that they were going to suddenly call me and figure out I hadn’t done something, and that I really hadn’t graduated, right up until I opened this? Now I feel like it’s finally real! (after going…

Graduating…..

I am going to get a little personal for a second here, I hope you will indulge me. This post is a scheduled post, I am actually not writing it today, because I am at the Colosseum in Richmond VA, graduating from VCU with my BIS in Historical Craft and Costume Studies, with a minor in History.  My mom…

Emmie’s Bed

Oh my goodness, this week……. I was working on a project for the sew along for Project Run and Play for last weeks theme of pattern remix, and then my sewing machine died…….. Well, it didn’t DIE die, but it started acting up and I just can’t make myself sew something badly (the lower looper…

Midterms and Spring-break {photo of the day}.

This morning I overslept, got the kids to school tardy, was late to my fieldwork/senior internship, and had an all around harassing start to my day. Now I’m sitting in class (having arrived 20 minutes early) knitting and waiting for my LAST MIDTERM EVER!!! to start. The house looks like a bomb hit it, and…

Milestones and a Mom’s "Running" List….

*warning, long-ish mommy ramble. (photo credit here, this is my gym’s track, but not my photo) Paul and I have been training for a 10K we are running in at the end of March, and since we started 3 weeks ago, Isaac has been trying to run with us. Week 1, Isaac looked like a…

Finally Done.

Whew, I’m finally done with all the stuff I was trying to do for Project Run and Play! I should have definitely started sewing earlier then I did, since all told I only was able to dedicate a couple of days to it with all the other stuff I have to do. I just kept thinking…

This week is CRAZY

I have had such a week, and the next one to come isn’t promising to be much easier. I spent time dyeing lace, only to not have the fabric I ordered arrive in time, so I shifted into plan B, and have made a completely different top for Project Run and Play, so now no…

Saturday mornings…

So I’m fully back in the swing of school again in weaving, (tapestry weaving this semester,) psychology, history of film part 1, and consumer choices. This is just a sample, not a perfect mushroom by any stretch……. The kids have been back at school for 2 weeks now, (Emmie’s sporting her Disney outfit in this…

School is out for Winter!

I just finished my last projects for school this semester, I am so excited for winter break, the kids and I have a ton of crafting planned! My final project for Pre-Columbian Peruvian weaving was a discontinuous warp and weft woven purse – I have step by step photos of the weaving, but not the…

Back from England

Well, to be honest I have been back for 2 weeks, but wow did it kick my butt being gone form school for so long – I have felt very behind even though I am actually only waiting for one teacher to come back from a trip so I can do a makeup test. (I…
