Two Hats
It didn't happen

Not too much

I really like blogging in the morning.  I'm not sure why, but that is when it feels right to me.  Today I didn't have time - Tuesday is the Iactuallygotomyparttimefivehouraweekjob day.  And in reality, I don't have too much to report.


The light is nice this afternoon - finally!  I took this photo of myself in the carpool line.  I didn't even have to crop it - nice, huh?  The necklace was made by the ever so talented Kristen. It was a gift to me from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  Heather bought it from Kristen in person without knowing that I already have some of her jewelry.  Serendipity?  I think so.  Anyhow, I love it.  You can check out Kristen's other baubles at her own little web store, Mood Swing Studios.  I bet you like what you see.


I squeezed some knitting in, too.  Maybe about five minutes worth.  Better than nothing.  Tomorrow is the day I conquer the sewing room.  I left it a huge, gigantic, really horribly bad mess after my bout of Christmas crafting.  I think the twill from Fatty's apron is sitting on the floor next to leftover patchwork strips from the blanket.  When will I ever learn?  Apparently, um, never.  I must get it spiffed up, though.  I've got something in the works.

I prefer the morning blogging too. I need to get things setup for better photos so I can get back to it.

I tend to blog at night for some reason. So who is this Fetching for? You?


I'm wearing one of Krisen's necklaces right now, too! I adore it and get so many compliments. I like yours.
A lot. :)


Is that an item of clothing I see in the works? Lovely emerald green?

I am a total morning blogger! In fact, if I miss the morning I will usually just wait until the next day to post.

That necklace is awesome!

lovely necklace! =)

my craft room is in desperate need of a good cleaning after my Christmas crafting as well....unfortuantely I have just pushed the fabric scraps to the side and now I'm making new messes, oh dear...


oy... that craft room storm strikes here too whenever there is making going on.


the fact that your family really knows you and your taste is just fabulous! the necklace is beautiful.

every minute spent knitting in the car is a good thing! love the mitts.
always a pleasure to stop in to see what you are up to morning OR night! :)


That's where I do most of my knitting---in the car waiting for my kids.

Oh, I have to say I miss your little mitten banner up there----not that I don't like your current one ;-)!!

Good luck with the craft room and knitting. I am curious what you are knitting with the lovely red yarn!

I am a night time blogger. When the kiddies are in bed and the house is quiet. For some reason I feel guilty blogging during the I should be doing something more productive with my time! For some reason if it's late at night I can justify blogging, all my chores and responsibilities are done. It doesn't really make sense I know!


love the necklace. i am off to check out her site. right now.


I wish I could blog in the morning, but I just can't manage it.

I seem to be terrible at blogging in the morning, I prefer blogging at night when I should totally be asleep in bed :) Good luck with the sewing room! Can't wait to see what you are making with that green fabric!


5 minutes of knitting is better than nothing, isn't it? I get crabby on days that I don't have enough time to create. (I don't know what I will do when the kiddies get older and I actually have to leave the house and work. it will be a harsh reality.)

That is a nifty necklace. As a jewelry designer myself, I always like to look at interesting pieces and see how they were put together. You never know where a spark of inspiration can come from!


ohh! i love this. everything about it is beautiful... it's definitely calling my name. thanks so much for sharing. it's wonderful!


I wish I was an evening blogger--usually my evenings are spent putting kids to bed and getting the house put back together, then, if there's time I read blogs...

I love that necklace. absolutely beautiful. the link to your project in the works didn't work for me..i'll have to check out your flickr...

The necklace is beautiful. I also meant to comment on your hand made holidays. You all did such wonderfully creative things. Again, you amaze me. I am totally adopting your concepts for next year for my own family. Thank you for sharing.


That is a beautiful necklace.

I have a few pieces by Kristen. I love her designs.
