Well, I called my Mom to complain about my sewing machine breaking. She is the one that gave me the machine (when she got a new fancy one) She got the green machine from her mom, who got it from her sister. That girl has been around the block! I'm talking about my sewing machine, not my Mom. :) ANYWAY, my Mom had some tricks for me to try and they worked! I got the green machine working again, which means I will be able to get my project done much sooner! It would have been done today, but on top of all the technical difficulties I've had today (did I mention that I also dropped my cell phone in water?) my sweet baby decided not to take very long naps today. I think he knew I was trying to get something done. :) But I still managed to get half way done, so hopefully I can show what I've been working on soon!
I do it because I love to make cute things. I do it to relax. I do it because it is therapeutic. I do it because life just seems better when I'm surrounded by beautiful things. I do it to escape. I do it for many reasons. But mostly I just do it because I can!
My name is Jennifer. I've been married 8 years to my perfect match. We have 3 awesome boys, 5 and 6 years old, and we recently welcomed Andrew to our home through the miracle of adoption! I love to craft, obviously, why else would I start this blog! I have tried about every craft imaginable, but I especially love to scrapbook, making things with vinyl, making jewelry, taking pictures of my kids, and decorating my home. I wish I could sew better and I never could get the hang of knitting! But I am willing to try anything! I also love reading, the color pink, white hangers (don't ask!), anything with chocolate and peanut butter, space heaters, Chinese food, kids, babies, going on dates with my husband, The Office, Anne of Green Gables, college football, and cheesecake.
