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.



The Looking Back

I’d be surprised to know anyone was actually following my blog anymore. Hasn’t really been much of a smash hit lately, has it? I would apologize for that, but I would honestly rather say nothing for weeks on end, than talk about nothing of any importance to me day after day.

I think I’m back now, no guarantees, no promises… I’m working on a big project that I’ll reveal in a few weeks but for now, just looking for a place to write, and that is what blogs are for. I recently added a few online friends to my Facebook account. I had met these lovely ladies on The Mommy Playbook quite a few months ago when Logan and I started trying to conceive. It’s a great site, with free membership and a wonderful sense of community once you’ve been around for a month or two. Before joining, I never really believed you could make “online friends”.. but I like to believe these are the type of women I would want to hang out with, if they lived anywhere close to me. None of them do, but we all find ourselves going through the same thing.

Anyway, added them to my Facebook account and took a look at my profile through their eyes. I have a zillion profile pics from over the years. Okay, only sixty-six, but still, they date back to 11/7/07. Looking through them all, it’s like a mini-review of the last five years of my life. And for the first time, I didn’t mind looking back.
