Hello, 2023

I’ve covered how my crafty resolutions went last year (the TL;DR was not well, but I’m still feeling good about what I did accomplish!). Now, I’m looking ahead to this new year! First off, I’ve decided 2023 is my year of apparel sewing. No SMART goal attached to this. I just want to put that […]

Goodbye, 2022

I hope your year went as well as mine did. Certainly had a lot of love and growth, even if my resolutions didn’t go entirely to plan. I never did publish anything, and I never even got started on the knitting machine. However, I did take some of my winter break to begin setting up […]

Spooky Halloween Wreath

Y’all. I am thrilled. Long time readers know Halloween is my favorite holiday (which I find mildly ironic for a person with a GAD. That’s my secret, Cap. I’m always scared). The idea for a seasonal wreath resolution actually started with my idea for this wreath, and I think it turned out even better than […]

Hello, 2022!

Took a bit longer of a break than expected, but I think it will be well worth it! Got some great ideas and goals for this new year. But first, let’s start with the old. I won’t prattle on again about how the year made me feel, but I am going to cover what I […]

Goodbye, 2020

And I hope the door hits it on the way out. I also hope that you’ve made it to the end of this collectively horrid year. I’d say “I hope you’ve made it well,” but why add extra requirements? It was hard enough to make it here at all. So if you did, I’m proud […]

A Happy New Year

I checked in with you all a year ago about my new year’s resolutions for 2019, and if I’m being truthful, I failed most of them. I didn’t knit the handspun sweater, or finish any sweater for that matter. I wasn’t able to write for myself like I wanted. If you’ve been reading any of […]
