Weekend Makes – Earl Grey Wrap

Happy Sunday, friends!  I hope you all are doing well! I had a good week.  It was a very quiet week at work, the quietest since...I can't even remember.  I am grateful for it.  Yesterday we decided to go for a little hike in a nearby park, since I desperately needed a change of pace… Continue reading Weekend Makes – Earl Grey Wrap

New Weekend Routines

Happy Sunday friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Yesterday was Husband's birthday.  I made him a special birthday dinner of baked chicken (coated in spicy breadcrumbs, yummm), Parmesan and spinach orzo, and a cake!

This is a Studio MME kit (she's since rebranded as Poplush Embroidery and has retired her skylines/landscapes kits.) I purchased this kit from the Elliot… Continue reading Going Inward

Tiptoe From the Comfort Zone Cowl

Early February, Husband and I had to make a very quick trip to Texas. I've mentioned here before that I don't love flying but that I've worked really hard to overcome my fears.   I can get on a plane now without thinking dark thoughts of our fates as I settle in my seat, and can… Continue reading Tiptoe From the Comfort Zone Cowl
