Catching up...


I've had a few people asking where I've been lately, and I'm sorry! Life has been extra hectic lately with Mark working tons of hours, me doing some income tax prep (yay for "adult time"), the start of swimming lessons for both kids, ultimate frisbee for Mark and me (SO much fun), and a million other things of course!

I have been working on a few projects, but one of the other things we've been dealing with is the water issue in our newly-finished basement, more specifically, right underneath my sewing area! We did have our wonderful plumber come in, and he seems to have fixed the problem, but we had to rip up some of the (8-month-old) carpet... So, for now, my sewing desk is in the rec room, in front of the tv, which proves to be a bit distracting when I'm working on things...

Today, I just wanted to share a couple of things for Easter, since next week will be too late! First, remember the lovely Subway Art I've been raving about? Well, I found this amazing Easter one here, printed it on 8x10 photo paper, and put it in a frame... Every time I see it in our front hall, it serves as a reminder of why we celebrate Easter!

Second, I wanted to do something fun with my two-year-old, and was inspired by the amazing cookies this lady makes (and look at these ones!)... I found some cutters at Zehrs (egg, bunny, flower) and away we went... It turns out that it was a much bigger process than I anticipated, including 2 hours for the dough in the fridge, so right now I only have the cookies baked... Hopefully we will have a chance to decorate them today or tomorrow...

Anyway, that's all I have for now, but I hope to post soon about the orders I've been working on, as well as a couple of other projects...

Thanks for reading!
