The Depot

Located only thirty minutes from me, open seven days a week stands a big place called The Depot. I mean, it’s only 88,000 square feet of antique heaven. They even have a fabric shop inside, which makes it all worth-while. I literally have to plan a day just to go there. My thirty-minute commute turns…

Earthhhh dayyy.

Oh, how we need to take care of this big blue and green we live on. Somethings don’t last forever. Days as beautiful as today remind me that not everything is promised. We need to take care of what we have in order to cherish it for years to come. Mother Earth needs love too!

I am not a shoe girl.

Let’s face it. I am not a shoe girl, at all. The fact that I have shoes on is probably because it’s required by society. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate them nor do I refuse to wear them. I am just overall not a feet person so you see where my trouble begins….

I’m back

My biggest apologies about my absence. I’ve been in and out of the trenches. Wether it be work, sewing, family, and health. I now have four holes in my mouth. My wisdom teeth were finally removed thank goodness. That pain was no longer welcome. I’m still on a soft diet due to healing. It’s a…

Little devils in my mouth

Let me start by saying I am sorry I have been absent for about a week. Life has put an obstacle in the way. Two words to sum this up: “WISDOM TEETH”. When I was younger, we were told “oh, they will be fine”. All four came in early during childhood, and apparently those little…

Spring is here!

Screaming “Hell yessssss!” to this warmer weather. I’m so glad I can start taking layers off of this chocolate skin. The sun is out and about sharing it’s rays. As of now there are no showers on standby – I couldn’t ask for more. Feeling the sun on my skin makes the day just that…

Learning your role

What roles do you play in the life you live? I have been logging different examples to explain and understand the different roles we play in this life. I am currently a woman, sister, daughter, auntie (as well as other family roles), friend, partner, coworker, and the list builds. We need to focus on some…

flower power!

I grew up rebellious against femininity. I was determined to be stronger, better, tougher, taller, and more compared to a man. Early on I saw a man as a competitor, someone I always had to prove myself to. I’m telling you this because because of that, I didn’t like girly colors, flowers or anything associated…

Bowtie anyone?

I made seven bowties for my partner, who hasn’t worn them one time. I’m not the type to force something new on someone. They were originally a love gift on one of our anniversaries. So now, many years later, I am gifting them to a dear friend who I know will rock them well. She…

Relationships can work.

Relationships are tough! All of them — friends, coworkers, partners. This is going to get a bit wordy. I apologize in advance for those gasping at the length. However, I plan to share how I think all relationships can work. Now I’m not saying the meanie you know will learn and grow to be great,…
