Whoops!

Well, I jumped the gun and posted the Monster Buddy blog without the PDF pattern link!  Whoops!  It is all corrected now and can be found here, Monster Buddy.  Sorry for the confusion!   Claire

Monster Buddy

Softly chirping birds on a spring morning, the crash of waves as they roll upon the shore, peals of laughter around a kitchen table, what do these have in common?  They are all melodies of life, more than just sounds, they evoke feeling and memories upon hearing.  To children born deaf or with severe hearing […]

January 2016

2015 has come and gone and 2016 is here! We had quite a lovely Christmas and a busy, but peaceful New Year.  So peaceful in fact, that as I sat knitting yesterday with a friend, she asked about this month’s dishcloth and I had to admit I’d completely forgotten to start it!  Not that I’ve […]

A Shot in the Arm

A Shot in the Arm

14 days until Christmas!  Today I took a break from all the Elf-ly duties and had a ‘physical’ health day!  This morning I had my third, (in a series of 6), vitamin infusion.  This treatment was prescribed to combat the incredible fatigue and malaise I’ve been experiencing for the last several months.  It is working […]

1Year Old!

Work-in-progress Wednesday has quickly become one of my favorite blog topics!  It is always fun to show you what I’m working on, with the hope that you will be inspired in some way to progress with your own projects!  However today, I want to share a work that I’ve had in process for 1 year […]

Not Cute, But Neat

Not Cute, But Neat

I had every intention of sharing all the home organization I’ve been doing this month, step-by-step.  It hasn’t happened, oh the organizing has, but not the sharing.  For a couple of very simple reasons: Number 1 – It’s embarrassing and mess is ugly.   Stuffed drawers and closets do not take pretty pictures. Exhibit A- […]

Thirteen

Today my sweet daughter is a teenager, 13.  On this day, 2001, my life was forever changed, I became Caroline’s mom..   Her huge blue eyes seemed to stare straight through me, and question me all at the same time.  I remember ‘chatting’ with her that first week, (I really thought it was my job […]

Hello Old Self

Hello Old Self

This afternoon I attempted to tackle my craft room.  It is a small little room stocked with all kinds of crafty goodness, but it has fallen into major disarray.  Disarray to the point that it has become ridiculously difficult to get anything accomplished in there!  Not to mention difficult to find things.  I have had […]

A Rough Job

A Rough Job

You won’t ever hear me say I’ve had a bad day at work.  Owning a yarn shop, how bad can it be?  Without a doubt, our customers are what make the shop amazing.  Lots of comfy chairs filled with knitters of every age and demographic.  It is NEVER boring, and usually a whole lot of fun. […]

Good Work

The other day I was out for a long run, on an unseasonably warm, muggy day.  As I rounded the corner for home, a UPS truck zipped by me and stopped.  I was plugging along, ready to be done, when the driver hopped out to deliver a package.  “Keep up the good work, girl!  Keep up […]
