re-surfacing! re-surging, re-minding.... wow. big big changes around here! we have a new baby girl! It's so exciting and lovely and wonderful. LOVE! sooooo...i have been very busy nesting and renovating, but we got it all done. I have a new craft room on the main level (pics soon!) and the big girls have their own rooms upstairs (much happier mornings!). A new living room, a new couch, a new baby! Everything fresh and open and bright. And here are some goodies, slowly making their way to etsy...

Being home with feverish children can be tiring, but I think I've more been feeling the push to get things done before the thing hits me!! I got a ton of stuff made, being stuck in the house, and some sweet snuggle time, too. It hasn't been the nicest outside (it's still winter here!) so, that wasn't too bad either. I've made it out the front porch for tea a few times this year, and my eldest daughter was out there today having lunch -- things are getting warmer for sure.
In the midst of mad makingness I found time to do some housework, too, and even a project for the girls. I had my last shift at my part-time job last week and it feels like my days are WIDE open now - and I have much more time, which is perfect. Good timing too - since I would have had to cancel out of many shifts seeing as someone's been sick since last monday. One or the other, not me, yet...although I did start to coughing. Hopefully check that with some heavy duty smoothies, ginger and garlic tomorrow...
Here are some goodies I've been working on. I have big dreams, but am learning to take it a day at a time, right now....
everything will be available on etsy soon, if not now! Check it out...and become a fan on facebook to qualify for an ongoing draw...or you can sign up for my newsletter, too (monthly) to get entered in the next draw. The prize is 100$ worth of humble home goods...yummy! Cheers!

after turning my living room into a disaster zone for a few days of making, it's tidied up again and feeling clear. although i'll have to rummage around (as it wasn't ME who did the cleaning) to find my well-organized piles of things i have to SHIP this week, it's still rather nice. i sat by the fire and made after a much needed yoga session. decidedly slowing down and waking up today. i didn't sleep very well at all last night. adjusting to belly-weight and strange digestive patterns. no more eating right before bed, i think. also have to watch the tea in the afternoon thing as my sleeping seems to be easily affected these days. the disturbing dreams don't help, either. grrrrrrr.
i was feeling absolutely blissful, though, most of the week. i made some fingerless gloves this week, and am going to focus on more in the coming weeks. along with some other new designs i have in my mind. these are some pics of what is and will be posted on etsy very very soon.
also going to have a mitten making session this week as i have some i want to make as gifts and stock up for the coming year.

I guess I went a little bit crazy making cowls the past months. It's just so much fun. It's a messy business, yes, but so spontaneous and adventurous. I love playing with the colours and textures and mixing and making. Here are some of the creations that have emerged. I am putting most of them on etsy presently.
