safety first

Always my cautious little girl - ever since she got this package of knee pads, elbow pads, and fingerless gloves she doesn't get on any of her moving playthings without them.

Hopefully this will continue well into her adult years!

when i grow up

Here we are in 2010, I'm now almost 40 and I still don't know what I want to be "when I grow up." And it seems that at the beginning of every year, I struggle with the thought that I'll never find my passion. The beginning of this year was no different, until my husband had enough of hearing the same speech. He said something to me that made me realize that I've known about my passion all along, but just haven't had the ability or confidence to do anything about it.

Crafting. Creating. Planning.

Over the years, I've done some crafting here and there, I've also been very diligent about researching and planning out the little details of things that interest me - like party planning. Since Dylann was born in 2005, and since I've been a stay-at-home mom, I think that I've been able to do a bit more of that and I really enjoy it.

Here are a few of the creations I've put together in the past few years:


Flower Hair Clips


Fruit Flower Bouquets

Barnyard Party

Little Bo Peep and her Sheep

Now, if I could just figure out a way to market myself and start making some money!
