I’m back! Kinda.


I’ve been gone for much longer than I intended.. but for a very good reason! Decided to re-open my craft shop, CrochetBabyHats¬†on Etsy. Need to think of a new name, because I’ve expanded my inventory beyond baby hats. I am not also making crocheted headbands for mom and baby, crocheted hats for moms (and dads) as well as my newest creation, knotted nursing necklaces!

CollageNecklaceI am loving the ability to be creative every day!

And I’ve decided to do a give away just for my blog readers! I’m just starting up again.. so all orders placed now through 9/7 will be entered into a drawing for a $15 credit to my shop. Just leave a comment mentioning this blog post at check out.

I have so many other things to update on.. including Elliott’s tongue tie surgery, which went well! …but those will be saved for a day I’m not up to my elbows in fabric scraps and yarn.



Out of Sorts

I’m almost officially old, and still find it ironic that you can have a cold in the middle of summer. My immune system has really taken a random hit lately, and I don’t quite understand it. I had tonsillitis for the first time, ever, about two weeks ago and now am dealing with bronchitis as the unfortunate aftermath of a very short, borderline bizarre cold. Thank goodness for breastfeeding otherwise the little would be coughing up a storm too.

Not that anyone reading this is likely to be interested in the details, but in case you’re wondering why I haven’t posted any of the things I’ve mentioned wanting to post about…here’s why. Soon-ish. Cloth diaper update/mini series, craft projects I’ve been working on and my top tips for painting wood furniture.
