A good time was had by all!



We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We traditionally take a family pic every year. This year was no different. However, for some reason we could not all seem to take a good pic at the same time! :)

I made pumpkin pie with a homemade crust for the first time ever! I am not a fan of pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin bars, pumpkin spice custard ;), pumpkin smoothie... but not pumpkin pie! I think they turned out great though!

I hit some of the Black Friday sales and was home by 830 yesterday! :) Awesomeness!

I finally got around to sewing a new cover for my camera strap. The old one was kind of grubby and not my best sewing ever.

Old vs. New

I love how my new cover turned out! I'm thinking of making one to giveaway...

I love fabric, but I'm a lazy seamstress, so if a project is quick and easy like the strap cover, I'm all over it! I've been wanting to make a quilt for years. So far I have purchased the fabric and cut it into strips! Progress, right? :)

Not much running going on here. I've been feeling lazy and homebodyish. And yes, my treadmill is in my basement. Shush you. Tomorrow. Tomorrow. Tomorrow!

  1. I love pumpkin pie only if it's covered in massive whipped cream...and come on, that's just way too many calories and I could never do that (hahahah. I ate about 3 slices). I do love all that other pumpkin stuff, too!!

    Thanks for doing the blog gift exchange - will be fun. I hope. :) Can you email me your mailing address so I can give it to the person who gets your name? I won't post on the blog, only your blog buddy gets it.

    Thanks!! Have a great week - and get on that treadmill, girl!!! :)

Dreams...

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 …

Finding My Way

Mike finished the upstairs of his shop for me. For my space. To use as I wish.  It's been finished and painted for a year.  Last night I finally felt the urge to begin to sort through and organize.  This is the beginning of my new studio space and I couldn't be more excited!!  I haven't created much art or jewelry over the last few years and until last night, I didn't realize how much I missed it.  Obviously, I still have a lot of work to do up here, but my work table is up and towards the back you can see my completely awesome blueprint file drawers that I won't be using for blueprints ;)

I've been feeling a little "off" lately and I think I've finally figured why.  I am a creative person at heart and I've been stifling my own creativity to conform and to make time for everything else.  I've decided it's time to fly my own flag and be who I am.  Who cares if one day all I think about is running and the next I am so engrossed in a pro…
