First I must apologize for my lack of blogging. I am a very busy girl with 3 little boys running wild through my house. It's not that I can't squeeze some time in the day to do a quicky post. It's Murphy's Law, sit down to do something and the entire house needs you for something. Then by the time I'm finished with the needy ones, there is dishes, laundry, vacuming. Then off to run errends. Then I have forgotten all about my blogging.
With this said I am off for more coffee and to clean up crayons and finish the laundry.

The Great Escape Attempt

Well the weather here has been beautiful. The boy have been out playing and with having 3 boys it is hard keeping a constant eye on them. The older 2 can play outside as long as they play in the yard. Sometimes for 1 of them it can be difficult. Today he was busted running up the ally way so he was sent to his room. His life nearly over!!
To his rescue comes the 6 yrs old. We caught him breaking into their ground floor bedroom to bust his younger brother out so they could play together. Daddy caught him halfway in the window or out the window.
Isn't it amazing that they fight like crazy but are the best of buds when one of them is in trouble.

No Wheels

Finally a blog update. The last week has been crazy busy.
The etsty team I belong to had a massive sale, so I was busy tweeting and posting away.
Last week my others truck broke down, so he took my beloved mini van, for 2 weeks. It is very difficult to get around on public transit if you are not well acquanted with the new city you live in.
So I pulled out my pouch sling and braved the bus with 3 little boys. They have been surprisingly well behaved and the people that are often on the bus are interesting. All in all it has thus far been an OK experience, It does take forever to get a simple task done like 3hrs for getting 2 bags of groceries. Making it difficult to get anything accomplished at home.
Only a few more days until I get my van back so I'm sure we will all survive.

Fur kids

Hi all I just thought I would update on the kittens. They were 4 wks on the 9th. They are climbing in and out of their box home and playing together. Here they are being sneaky.

Bad Dog Beautiful Day


It has been beautiful here the last couple of days. Yesterday the older boys went to a friends house who lives just a couple houses away. being the overprotective mother I am, I walked over with the baby just to make sure all was well. All was well so i came home to find my dog had eaten the metal blinds and stuck his big fat head through our bedroom window screen. Boy did he look happy big head and paws hanging out the window. Now I have to buy new blinds and posibly a new screen. He is such a brat, 9 yrs old and still he acts like a puppy.

ugly little owl clips

Awwwww! They are so darn ugly they are cute. I can't help but giggle when I see them. I just listed them in my etsy shop.


I have been trying out pattern drafting. I usually just wing it but I have a few things I want to make alot of and they have been stuck in my brain. So I am drafting and actually completing my daydream projects. Stay tuned I will post pics today.

New Pattern

I recently purchased a pattern from a wonderful etsian.

Here is what my Boo Bears look like. Please meet Snowflake and Misty Mints.
I had made a white one first a polar bear if you will in honor of our never ending snow but he was snafoozled by my youngest. He lugs him around and gives him hugs and kisses. He is so cute.

We had snow this morning but it warmed up and went away. YAY!!!

Then i was informed we are due for a snow storm. Oh well. It is pretty!!

I have listed a bunch or new cards in my etsy shop.

Here is a link.

What fun to step away from my usual sewing and into something a little different. I still apply the basics with color and layouts but with paper. The boys are getting into it aswell. It is nice to do something together I really do enjoy it.

Well off to bed and sweet dreams of creating.

Well it is march first and a slight sign of spring here in central Alberta. The snow melted and I was able to shovel it off the deck. No sign of grass yet but I'm sure a few more warmish days like today and it will pop up.
We are in our new home now and are for the most part set up. I have managed to set an area in which to do paper crafting. My new hobby! It was tough to get inspired as I have been trying for awhile. My sewing machines are not set up as my basement is occupied at the moment. So maybe it is easier for me this time around. NO distractions!!
I have found that creating with paper is very much like sewing but of course with paper. Layering, color combos and best yet my kids can join in. the boys seem to enjoy it and the baby can join in as well. He tends to color on everything (himself,the walls, the dog) Thank goodness for washable marker. LOL.
I feel that most of my cards are decent enough for a stroll on etsy.
So please take a peek in the next day or two and I will have them posted.

What the heck my blog does not update itself? LOL
Things have been crazy busy here and to top it all off we are moving. 3 sleeps and 4 days away. I am excited and worried of course. I pray everything goes smoothly. We did hire movers as hubby is away at work. Nothing should get broken this time.
This is by far the longest i have not created something. My house is a disaster as I go through all of my crap. I don't know where it came from but man there is alot of it.
Well i'm off to bury myself in some chaos.

Brain Freeze!!

Well my blog is not being updated as much as i would like. I have good intentions but kids and work seem to get in the way. Oh and I TWITTER!!! Hehe.
I have decided to take a mental break from work (sewing) and do some creative sewing. I am currently working on some patterns for critters and such. I'm not worried about when they have to be finished and i seam to accomplish more.
Post pics soon of the boys and their monsters.

Well my New Years has had a sad slow start. Bummed out after the holidays and still no ability to pull money from my ars. I have made zero resolutions for the New Year and have stuck to that with no problems at all.
But alas I have been brain storming as I lay quietly with my boys at bed time. They still want everything as apparently christmas was not enough for them. Unfortunatly they have to eat and they haven't got the idea that food costs money to.

So I have some brilliant new ideas for my etsy shops and I still have to finish the baby slings I have been plugging away on. After 80+ slings they tend to be manotonous.( did i spell that right?). Only 14 more to go and then 10 nursing covers that were just ordered.
Maybe the new year won't be so slow.
So now I'm going to clean the living room there are toys everywhere.
