No, I don't make cupcakes for Punxsutawney Phil every year. Today also happens to be my
It's hard to believe that this little mama's girl has been a part of our family for an entire year now. It feels like we just welcomed her yesterday.
My husband and I figure that we'll only be able to get away with a Groundhog Day birthday party theme for one or two birthdays, so we took full advantage.
Happy Groundhog Day and Happy 1st Birthday little one!
On an entirely different subject... I would like to thank all of my readers who have been hanging in there with me for the past month or so. I haven't been posting or creating as often as I used to. About mid-December blogging started to feel like a chore and wasn't as much fun as it was when I first started. I was taking it way too seriously, literally staying up all night on occasion to get a post written or a project done, and I was burning myself out. I love blogging, but I needed to take a step back and reevaluate and prioritize. I was feeling down about not having any projects to post about when I read this post by Erica at B is for Boy. What struck me is when she came to the realization that she doesn't always have to post about crafting. Hello?!? Why didn't I think of that?!? If I don't have a project to share, that doesn't mean that I can't post anything. There are plenty of other things I can post about. I haven't really posted much that isn't craft, sewing, or decorating related before, but I think I'm going to start. This won't turn into a personal journal or anything like that... this blog will still focus on craft and sewing projects and handmade in general. But if I have something on my mind, I'm going to blog about it. And if its been a few days and I haven't had time to sew or create anything, you may get a recipe out of me or a story about something that happened that day. To get to the point, I'm going to stop stressing and start posting. I hope that's OK will all of you.
I have been sewing, and I will be sharing those projects with you in a post later this week. Thanks for sticking with me.
