long time no blog

Oh jeez...how I've neglected this poor blog. Well, I'm back, rested up, and ready to start doing this thing again!
Here's what you've missed in the past few months:

-I got married!

-I went on a wonderful honeymoon to northern California with my lovely husband!
-I returned back to Chicago where it was HOT HOT HOT for the last 2 months!

-I attended some really great concerts : Arcade Fire, Rogue Wave, and Hanson (yes, I'm not afraid to admit I love them!!)

-I finally took up cooking, and have actually really started to like it!

And now things have drifted back to normal, domestic bliss. The weather is starting to cool down, and I can feel fall just a few weeks away. I've been very busy with my crafting lately, finishing up a throw blanket, 2 hats, and a special gift for my best friend (which I can't reveal yet in case she sees this).
I also have a few new projects in the works and many more on my mind after my trip to the craft store last weekend.

(throw blanket - completed after weeks of work!)

(a work in progress - granny squares to be sewn together to form a pillowcase)

(new hat just posted in my shop)


  1. I'm loving your etsy shop. I found it through Meg over at Meg's Musings. I look forward to buying a hat when fall weather rolls around.
