Busy Little Bee

I am really missing working on blog posts, but all of my free time seems to be consumed with preparations for Stitch Rock.  Have I even mentioned that I'll be selling there this year?!  I've been working like a mad woman to have lots of cute stock!  I promise to update soon, but for now, the best place to get updates on my work and life is Instagram.  Be back soon!

What a Journey!

I completely missed my blog's birthday, but on the 2nd of this month, this little blog turned 3!  I can't believe it's been that long and I feel like it's a good time to look back and reflect on how much things have changed since I started.  I was scrolling back through old posts, when I came to this one from September 6th, 2012.  This post explains sort of why I started blogging to begin with and where I was at personally during that time.  Fast forward to early September 2015 and the same doctor's office I mentioned in that old post, the one where I unloaded on my poor sweet doctor.  At this check up, though, I was able to speak candidly with my doctor about how happy I've been and being back in that room reminded me of my journey to get where I am now.  I went from this sad girl who had lost her glow to this seriously bubbly strong woman.  That doesn't mean I don't have bad days, but I have learned some better ways of coping with them and the stress in my life.  The depression in that old post did get worse and there was a time when I stopped doing all of those things that helped me stay healthy.  I eventually got back on track with the help of counseling, medication, and an amazing amount of support and hard work.  I am probably the happiest and most healthy I've ever been.  I've even been able to stop the medication and counseling, although I wouldn't hesitate to pick either or both back up if I needed the help.  I'm always a bit of a work in progress, but I have to say that I've made some great strides since starting this blog.  Here's to many more happy years of sharing with you all!
This makeup-less late night iPhone selfie in a poorly lit bathroom is really the perfect depiction of just how happy I feel these days!

Go Team!

This post isn't at all about sports, but when I think about pennants, I imagine fans waving them at games.  These pennants are way cooler than what I'm imagining, though, and would look great hanging on my walls.  Click the corresponding number to check out the details and purchase your own!

Science Fiction, Double Feature

So originally I was going to do a music post about Steel Train, one of my favorite bands.  They were fronted by Jack Antonoff who's also a member of a few other bands you may know, like Fun. and Bleachers.  While looking for a video to post, I found Jack doing this cover from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and I had to share.  It's one of my favorite movies and shows to see live.  If you've seen it, you'll recognize this as the opening song sang by the pair of red lips.  I've been super busy working on Halloween themed doll faces, so this fits perfectly with that theme.  Enjoy and Happy Labor Day!
