A dear friend of mine was coming to Christmas and I wanted to do something very special for her. I hadn't done any needle felting in a long time and knowing how much she loves and appreciates the fiber arts I thought it was time to dust off the old felting mat and tackle my first 3D sculpture. I invited her over for an afternoon lunch, while trying to be subtle I asked her what her favorite animal is? She thought for a moment, with a smile she replied, "an Impala". immediately I tried to hide the internal panic/shock of all the creatures on this planet, an impala?!? you have got to be kidding me. How in the world was I going to pull that off! She then went on to explain how she fell in love with the way they gracefully move through the grasses and their energetic leaps and bounds are incredible to see. After our lunch, I was still a little puzzled on what I was going to do, my husband asked me so what's the project going to be? a dog? a cat? an owl? his face was about the same as my internal reaction, "a what?" "an Impala? that's kind of like a gazelle, right?" yes exactly....
I started working on a special Christmas present. I knew I wanted to do something incorporating my 3 boys as well as our back woods that the boys love to play in. After some research and inspirational searches, I decided to create the 4 seasons of the year with each son in the season of their birth.
I'm a baker, a crafter, a personal concierge, a website builder, and above all else, I am a mom to 3 rowdy boys. I'm not a stay-at-home-mom, I'm a Homemaker.
Living on a shoestring and making the most of the lemons
Life is not easy, we all know this by now, but life is what you make it, no matter how corny that sounds (rhymes and all). Some days you can't wait for them to just be over and others, why can't they last longer. So let's make the most of it, make the shoe string budget as long as you can and make the best darn lemonade you've ever had!
