…toasty coco…

One of the biggest gaps in my me-made wardrobe, is a lack of dressier options in the cooler months. I had big plans during May to work on this and just…didn’t. My mojo went awol. Last week though, I hit the ground running. I had a party to go to and nothing to wear. A couple of weeks back, I […]

…EMBRACE June…

What a month May was! Daily selfies and a full focus on wrapping up season two of the podcast left little time for crafting. I also had a video class due, and wrapping the final chapters on that also took a decent chunk of both time and headspace after my camera let me down and lost half my footage. It […]

…EMBRACE May…

When I set my April mini goals, I mentioned in my post that I found it hard, and felt unfocused. With April done and dusted, “unfocused” could have been the word for the month. The two long weekends and three short weeks definitely didn’t help. I did zero clothes sewing to prep for winter. I’m behind on the new classes. […]

…the day after the long weekend before…

Two long weekends in a row and the crafty hangover is in full force. It’s been a 10 day long craftapalooza, and real life had hit with a rather spectacular thud. Not helping the situation is a sleepless night thanks to an unwell (but not plague unwell) child. Somehow I’ve gotten to the Wednesday of the third short week in […]

…EMBRACE April…

March has been and gone, in a whirlwind of quilts and crochet and books and school work and school break. I’ve held reasonably well to my March goals. I managed to keep my scrolling to a minimum, and aside from a wee bit of a Bridgeton mini binge the last few evenings, I’ve stuck to my desire to avoid regular […]

…EMBRACE March…

How is it only March? It feels approximately 300 years since New Years! It feels almost as long since the beginning of last month, when I last sat down to break down my word of the year into manageable monthly focuses. While I set mini goals in February, I only shared them on instagram, and not here on the blog. […]

…EMBRACE 100 days…

I have a conflicted relationship with the 100 days project. I’ve vaguely sort of considered the idea for many years, and given it a half hearted attempt. In 2020, in the depths of that long first lockdown, when life revolved around pressers and zoom and wiping down the groceries before they came in the house and setting up outside hand […]

…12 days calendar…

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my podcast partner gave to me…. quite possibly one of our coolest projects ever. It all began back in November, when we saw all these amazing advent calendars popping up all over the place. They were all so fabulous, but also niche. What if, went the theory, we DIYed it? What if we made […]

…EMBRACE the new year…

The last two years, my word has come to me, almost on its own. This year, not so much. I’ve got a bundle of things I want to work on, and projects to focus on, and no matter what word I played around with, nothing seemed to fit it all. I felt a bit of pressure to come up with […]

…DIVE into NYE…

What. A. Year. I didn’t quite know, back in January, exactly how much DIVE would come to mean to me. I took it literally. I found so many opportunities to DIVE into projects and down rabbit holes. Most notably, in 2021, I decided to DIVE into a podcast idea that has existed in some format since April 2019, and took […]
