Wife, Chicken Mommy, eBay Seller and Walking DIY Disaster

We went on a long baseball tournament. I sewed a lot of hexagons. BY HAND!


Today is my chicken baby girl’s birthday. She decided on a room makeover. Now, I don’t know how most people go about a room makeover, but I don’t have a few grand to throw at a 14 year old’s room, so we started small. I bought a few thrifted and clearance items to get us […]


If I could rip out walls and windows and re-do my entire kitchen I would. But I can’t, so I won’t. The next best thing is messing around with what I have. So be it. When we bought our house there was no hardware on any of the cabinets. Still isn’t. I’m going to change […]


Just phoning it in today to say how little there is going on around these parts. School is back in session, people are sick, Ski club started for the middle school, the cats are cute as hell and I’m still pinning more quilts than I will ever make or need in 4 lifetimes. Being sick […]

I bought a serger last year on eBay. Almost a year to the day. I’m too scared to use it. I don’t even know if it works. All the jumbled up strings of thread are so complicated looking that just walking into the sewing room gives me anxiety.   So I’ve tucked it into a […]


I have so many things swirling around my head to write about. Sometimes dumping it in one spot helps me clear my mind enough to move forward. There. I admitted it. So here are the posts I’d love to do, but haven’t found a way to gel into coherent thoughts. My hope is that I […]


While I was in Memphis I busted ass trying to help my mother get her house in shape. I emptied out cabinet after cabinet of stuff, cleared out the fridge and scrubbed what I could. While I did some of the more down and dirty jobs, my mom diligently got rid of boxes and boxes […]
