Aunt Crafty

Part of being an aunt means that I am now able to rain hand-made gifts down upon yet another recipient. Halloween was always my favorite holiday, so I shall make it my tradition to send my niece Molly a Halloween package every year.

Here she is sporting a Jayne hat with cat-ears, a toddler-sized Dr. Who scarf, and a pumpkin.



Resetting the Pace

There’s been quite a bit of slow-down in my life in all areas due to school. As the last year of school approached and I set my sights on internship and finally having a Masters degree, hobbies and exercise alike dropped off my radar of priorities. I feel somewhat bad about this considering I had an increase in people following my blog right before this happened.

Desert Bus for Hope season approaches again (busing begins Nov 14th!). I have not participated in two years, which makes me a little sad. I hope to make a come-back in that area next year. My brain is full of nerdy crafting ideas!

Now that I have graduated and hope to find a new job in my career field, I look forward to setting a new, steady pace of working out, creating things, and drinking beer. I hope to add hiking to my list of hobbies soon. If all goes well, all of these things will fall into place and begin to feel normal.
