I want to be a clean desk person.
What a Messy Desk Says About You assures me my cluttered workspace is good thing. Messy desks generate more creative ideas. They inspire you to break free from tradition. They produce fresh insights.
All that is good, but secretly I’d like […]
I found my daughter’s scarf. It was on the lost and found table at school. She’s no longer wearing it, though, because she likes the fleece scarf better. You saw that coming, didn’t you?
Of course, I had just started working on a cowl to match her hat and mittens. Will […]
This week I crocheted a little flower bookmark for a friend. I mailed it to her “just because.”
I wish I did things like this more often, but I tend to get wrapped up in my own little world. I’m going to try and change that.

In my creative space today I’m working on the border for the wagon wheel baby blanket. It’s been almost a year since I started this project. Yikes! I really lost momentum when it came to seaming the squares.

I really love the pattern and the design would probably “pop” more with a solid color yarn.
I’m no longer ripping back tiny […]

Unlike my point-and-shoot, I’m going to have to read the manual for this one.
But that hasn’t stopped me from just diving in!
It’s picnic season and I’ve started thinking about snacks that are easy to pack when we’re going to the park. I’ve always loved scones, but I like them light and fluffy, not like some of the hard ones you find in coffee shops.
I’m also kind of picky about their nutritional […]
