I am a young creative minded mother of boy/girl twins. When we decided to start a family, twins were never in the mix. They have proven to be a blessing and joy and it is a wonder to watch them grow and take in the world around them. I currently work outside the home full-time and find that working along with raising an active (read= exhausting)little family of 6 (can't forget the doggies)can be a bit of a challenge. I decided to purchase a sewing machine to give my creative side a much needed boost. Over the past 6 months I have been teaching myself to sew through my own trial and error and reading of blogs and books. It seems that I have a knack for this sewing thing as I have taken to it like a fish to water. I look forward to sharing with you a little on my life and crafting projects as things take shape!

So much for keeping up with this new blog. With the holidays fast approaching I was being kept busy with crazy kids, a huge family order of 7 aprons for Christmas, various birthdays that required a quick stitching up of one thing or another. In between that we had a huge snow storm, a couple of sub freezing temperature filled days, and a bought of the cold that's been going around and is still lingering. I put my finishing touches on my last sewing projects before Christmas. I made a few things for my sister's but I can't post pics yet as they may read this blog. So I packed up the ole' sewing machine and put everything away which for me means I cleared the dining room table (my "space" as I don't hace a sewing table or room of my own)and piled my goodies in a neat pile in a corner. Ahhh... one day we will have a bigger home and not just a two bedroom townhome and I'll have my own craft space. In the mean time I am ready to relax a bit before Christmas hits. I'll actually be going to sleep on time instead of sewing into the wee hours of the night which is the only time you have with twins. So I will leave you with a few pics of some of my latest and greatest. The Bears Apron is a set of three. Daddy's (pictured) and two sons 6 and 1.5 will all these matching pieces. I can't wait to get a pictureof the three of them together!
