Truly cool peeps!

This blogging world never ceases to amaze me. There are sooo many talented, generous, kind people out there. Without blogging, I would never have gotten the chance to "meet" them. Throughout the coming months, I'd like to introduce you to some of my favorite people and places out there in cyberspace.

The first people I have the pleasure of introducing you to are the gals at Boojiboo. It's a team made up of a mother and her two daughters. I can think of nothing better than homemade goods coming from a family effort! They carry beautiful aprons:

Gorgeous drink coasters:

And the cutest kitchen towels ever:

Recently I had the opportunity to enter a giveaway on their blog. Boojiboo was looking for input about their blog, shop, etc. I of course, never one to shy from a challenge, entered. I was not the winner of the fabulous clutch from their other shop, Boojibootique. However, generous people that they are, they did offer everyone who entered (and didn't win) a free mini wallet/coin purse. How AWESOME is that??

Here is the one I chose:

So head on over to Boojiboo's blog or their fabulous Boojiboo shop right away!! And don't forget about Boojibootique!!
Thanks again to Boojiboo for their generosity! You guys rock!
People like this have restored my belief that good people do exist and they are all around us, if we only take the time to look!!
Be on the lookout for a new giveaway, celebrating the first sale from my new Etsy shop, Sewin !!

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Proof that I occasionally finish what I start...

New throw pillow covers I made a couple of weeks ago! Finished and started the same day :)  (Sorry the pics aren't the greatest.) I love making these.  They are super quick and easy and are an inexpensive way to change your decor.  Yes, I realize that they don't match each other and yes, they are all on the same couch.  We have a sectional and they're spread out. Besides that, I am eclectic and my home reflects that about me! I'm going to try to take pics of my quilt top tomorrow (read: bribe Mike into doing it for me).  It's been sitting folded up in a drawer since last year. :(  I need to quilt it because: A. It's my first quilt and B. I love it and can't wait to use it!! I've been throwing a lot of love out there in the quilt world the last couple of days, because I am flat out with an injured back.  So to all of you whom I've visited or will visit, thank you.  You're keeping me sane!!  Trish
