Wow, has it been a year (almost)?...

I can't believe how time flies! It was almost a year ago that I called it quits on the ol' blog and took a much needed break from crafting.

Around the first of the year last year I got pregnant with our second. The second pregnacy, in some ways, was much more difficult than the first. I was just sooo tired all of the time. Growing a little person and chasing around a two-year-old at the same time is hard work! On September 22 we welcomed our new baby girl Aya Olive. :-)
Now that the baby is here I seem to have so much more energy (believe it or not!). I've found it difficult NOT to craft. So, among other things, I've been working hard to restock the shop .

I finally formatted my "Dot Dolly" pattern:

And a the little "Buzzy B. and Berry Bear" crochet pattern that I started working on eons ago:

I've also found myself recently addicted to knitting socks (something I thought I'd never have the patience for). Here's my third pair, in progress:

I just LOVE how those nifty stripes and patterns magically appear! And, surprise, this sock yarn is now available at Michael's.

Here's another tiny one that I made for Aya (below). Only it's too tiny for even her itty bitty foot, so I guess it's going on the Christmas tree!

If there's anyone still out there, I bid you a fond farewell...

Hiya. Well, my "make break" has gone on a little longer than I had planned. And although I wish I could report that all this time I've been secretly working on lots of exciting new items for my shop, alas, no. I've been chasing my little guy around the house, going for long relaxing walks, enjoying the freash air, catching up on celebrity gossip, and getting snuggled into bed BEFORE 10 p.m.. It's been dreamy. So dreamy, in fact, that I've decided to call it quits on the old blog (not that I was ever that on top if it anyway).

I'll still be around though. I've got loads of fabric and materials out in the studio that need to be used up, so I'm going to work on a shop listing from time to time. If you have any questions for me, want to chat, or just say Hi, you can always shoot me a convo over on Etsy. :-)

Thanks for all the support over the past few months. I wish you all the best in 2008!!
