2010…Finally

2010…Finally


Posted on Jan 1, 2010

Let's face it, last year was a bust.  It was the hardest year of my life.  It was also the most un-crafty year I've ever had.  I completely neglected my blog with only 21 posts in all of 2009.  Crafting is such a big part of my life, that I missed it when it was gone.  But sometimes in life, you have to buckle down and take care of other priorities first.  I've been looking to 2010 as a...

This past year has been the hardest year of my life.  The main reason for this was my father-in-law's battle with esophageal cancer.   He was diagnosed just about one year ago.  His battled ended on December 2nd.  This loss has been hard for me.  I've been a member of my husband's family for 16 years; pretty much my entire adult life.  My father-in-law was truly my father figure in...

Chapman Swifts

I first saw the Vaux's Swifts back in 2005 when my cousin was visiting.  It was a very serene peaceful evening of about 30 people watching the birds retire for the evening.  This year I got to see them again and it was a very different experience.  Each September the Swifts sleep in the old chimney at Chapman Elementary School for a few weeks.  We are one of their many stops on their migration trail. ...

Topol in Fiddler on the Roof


Posted on Sep 3, 2009

Fiddler was the first play in Broadway series this year.  After having such a great experience with our season tickets last year, we opted to keep our seats for another year.  Being born in the 1970's,  I grew up with Topol.  I've seen the movie a zillion times and can sing along to every song.  Getting the opportunity to see Fiddler with Topol was just incredible.  Every word, every gesture...

Pilgrimage to Bimbach


Posted on Aug 24, 2009

I just got back from a week long trip to Germany!  This was my first real trip in a couple of years and I was definitely ready.  My husband was born in Germany because both of his parents were in the military.  They returned to the US when my husband was about 2 years old.  The main adventure was to find the house where he used to live.  He lived in the tiny hamlet of Bimbach, just outside of Fulda, and...

Bachelorette Party

Bachelorette Party


Posted on Aug 7, 2009

I only have one sibling, so when my sis finally got engaged I wanted to do something really special for her bacherlorette party.  I decided to make all 'penis styled' appetizers (a term, I think I coined).  The possibilities are endless and it was great fun buying supplies at the store.  The most obvious thing that came to mind was of course little smokies.  I also used carrots, cheese, olives and...
