Hi Mom!

Aren't you always supposed to give props to your Mom when you do something great? Like get on TV or win an award or something? Isn't a computer kinda like TV? It looks like one right? LOL! Ok, maybe not.

Anyway, Hi Mom! I'm sure you'll be the only one reading for awhile anyway :-) That and my two followers....who have followed faithfully for months despite the fact I have posted nothing. Aren't Flickr friends great? Speaking of which, it was those Flickr-y friends that encouraged me to get this blog as well as an etsy store to sell my polymer clay pins. I'm not there yet....the learning curve is great....any tips, tricks or help for both blogging and etsy is appreciated!!

I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Christine. I'm a 38 year old SAHM. {Why does this feel like a personal ad? I don't want a date. I promise!} I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world ;-) We have two kids ages 12 and 17. I love to sew, quilt, craft, make things.... (Did I mention I love ellipses? I think I have a punctuation commitment problem....ellipses solve all that! I use them correctly, incorrectly, and way too much! Just FYI. I also can't spell.) I collect and hoard fabric in an organized fashion. (No hoarders show for me!!) I start many, many crafty things. I'm a great "beginner" of quilts but finishing isn't always my strong suit. LOL! Lately, I'm into making polymer clay pin toppers for straight pins. They are fun and a small enough project I can finish them :-)
I am in the midst of a remake of half my garage. I'm turning it into a studio. I live in Base Housing it is kinda like building a fort when you were a kid. It has to be really cool and functional but you need to be able to take it all down and return it to its previous condition before you leave. I did paint the whole garage aqua tho....much to my hubby's dismay ;-) It is an inspirational color for me. But we will be painting it  before we leave!
I guess here is where I put some eye-candy for you to ooooh and aaaaah over. I guess I better go figure out how to do that....hope you can edit these things! LOL!


  1. This will be your first comment...
    I too like to use ellipses... They are easier to use when you're not sure which punctuation is correct.
    This will be great!

  2. Oh yeah... Thank you for including me in your first blog message. Moms appreciate acknowledgement in our old age :-)
