I am a crafty girl who is inspired by the world around me. I craft, read, bake, watch movies and tv shows, and kick butt in video games. Oh and I sometimes have little dance parties. I believe we all hold the key to our own happiness. *There's nothing better than to sit back and take in the beauty around you* *The world is our playground*

Craft Life
It's been ridiculously hard getting back into sewing since Emma arrived. Between being tired, mentally and physically, having less free time, and feeling drained creatively, it's tough to go into the craft room and create things. So what got me back into th...

It's been a while since I sat down and wrote anything. September is in full swing and it feels like fall is around the corner. The weather has cooled significantly and the stores are filled with all things pumpkin. The summer flew by with visits to Hamilton...
