Nice to meet you!

Hello and welcome! I thought for my first little post I would just introduce myself to you. Yes, you've read my profile, it's all there, what you need to know anyway, but I just want to get a little more in depth. I'll still keep it brief...promise!

I began blogging in 2009 over at My Lazy Apples. It was very enjoyable, I started it while pregnant for my first child and continued until two things happened; As it turns out, having children is very time consuming and there became more and more space between posts as I started back at work and was juggling school (yoga teacher training) and a toddler. And the other thing that happened is that my blog began to take on a life of its own. I think that I let my blogger envy get the best of me and in my efforts to publish what I thought my readers would like, I lost the true meaning of my purpose. So I stopped.

Since then I have played with the idea of blogging again so many times. I have some fun projects and experiences that I really want to share. So, at last, I am back, in a new space with only the intentions of sharing what I love with the hopes that you enjoy it too.

I've been sewing for about 10 years now. I always seem to gravitate towards it. Over the years there have been times my hobby was been placed on the back burner for whatever the reason at the time was, but I always come back to it. In recent years I've really stuck to it. I find it to be therapeutic and a completely satisfying hobby (or addiction depending on your point of view). Several years ago I sewed my first quilt. It was ugly as hell but it sparked an interest which has grown into a passion to learn to quilt. Only several months ago did I learn that I can actually quilt my own quilts on my machine. Duh! I don't know why it took me so long to figure that one out but I am so glad that I did because I LOVE it. I absolutely consider myself a beginner...I think I always will as there are so many methods and new things to try. I have made the choice to commit to my sewing and to make every effort to create a career out of my passion. You will find that these pages are mostly filled with sewing, some tutorials and DIY's and maybe some fun family adventures. It's so nice to have you here!

Thank you for visiting!
