I am just getting the hang of it so bear with me! Next up Twitter????




Sorry to be so lax with the blog this week, but with the finishing up of our kitchen renovation and just general "sprout" preparation, I've been pretty wiped out. But here is a treat! Today we had our last ultrasound and the sprout was in such a good position that the gave us a 3D peak! Pretty awesome huh?

In beautiful Mt. Vernon Square between Charles and Cathedral Streets. Don't forget your Mama on Mother's Day! Come to the Art Mart for perfect handmade gifts. Hope to see you there!


The Summit was AWESOME Indeed!

So much info, so much craftiness, and so much support. It was really nice to be part of such a great event. From the workshops and speakers, to the hands on activities, to the screening of Handmade Nation, I don't know how anybody could leave and not be truly inspired. I only have 3 regrets- I didn't take enough pictures, I didn't have the energy to stay the entire weekend, and given the "state" I am in, I can't dive head first in to all the new ideas I have. Sigh. My plans will have to wait a bit till the little sprout is here and settled in. But hey, I have to sort of think of it as THE ULTIMATE CRAFT PROJECT, right? My workshop went well, I hope I was able to help out some of the eager crafters with their photo questions. I was just flattered to be included!
