Stitchy update!

I have made progress on my Bohemia piece

I have also started on her face so my next photo will be a finish!
Hopefully by the end of 2011 as this one just shouldn't have taken so
long but I haven't really had time to stitch sadly.

After the holidays when I actually have 2 days off from work,
one day will be my cleaning,grocery and laundry day.
The other day will be stitching and gaming day :-)

I'm addicted..

I'm addicted to I have discovered so much. You choose your interests and with the click of one button, you are transported from one the the next.

Of course mine are food and crafting related..but I threw in some nature because I do love looking at beautiful photographs of places I'll never go.

I am also addicted to it's a way to see gifs and photos , share them. You can also post your own blog, photos, videos,etc. It's neat. A great time waster.

Also..there is Facebook.I love that I can log in and see what all my friends and family are "like" and move on. I work so much and am so busy that really is the only way I can stay in touch...sad..but true.
Most of the working world is the same. At least one can hope I'm not the only person.

Has it really been 4 months?!?

Since my last blog? wow. I used to be an every day blogger..or several times a day blogger more like it.
I've been so busy with my job and trying to keep up with the domestic stuff that I've been bad at getting here.
Well that and the fact I can quickly sum up my thoughts with a short and sweet facebook status.

I know...I used to really enjoy blogging when I was over at I had lots of subs and met a lot of wonderful people. I started my xanga blog about 15years ago and still are friends on facebook with them to this day.

I do plan on getting here more often though as most have moved on from xanga and use facebook. But I love blogging. Even if no one reads it.

I have made progress on my stitching. I have baked some. I've had lots of stuff I thought about coming here to blog but just didn't make it that far. Habit of sitting down to the computer and as soon as the internet loads, Facebook is my homepage. I get lost in all the shared photos, games,etc.

I do promise, since I don't go into work until late tomorrow..that once the kids are off to school and I have refilled my coffee mug, I will get here with photos of updates that I have posted on facebook to get everyone (not like anyone reads this blog yet because well mainly I haven't been out there networking) caught up from my last blog (August 17th, yikes!) until now.

Until then, I'm off to watch my recorded episode of Dexter and then get to bed.

A day in the life...

Had today off..the next few days I'll be home late from work and some of those days I close,
getting home around 10pm.
So on my day off I decided to cook a few meals.

I made buscuit pizzas for lunch,making my own red sauce.
 I saved half of that sauce for spaghetti later in the week.
Made drop buscuits in my babycakes.

I also browned ground turkey,adding in taco seasoning.
Half for tacos tonight, the other half will be frozen for quesadillas later in the week.
Spanish rice and corn as sides for both.

I have a few chicken breasts with a marinade in the crock pot..two dinners worth.
cheesey broccoli and some fruit as sides with one, mac n cheese and salad for the other.

I'll have off mid next week to cook a few more dinners...

Now I'm here blogging then later I'll figure out what I'm stitching.

First post!

I figured I'd start with some introduction for my very first post at my new home.
I'm a married mom of 2. 14 year old girl and 5 year old boy. I refer to them as "Girlchild" and "Boychild".
I've been married for 8 years. I refer to him as "Manchild".
I'm in my mid 30's and work full time in retail as an asst. manager.

In my "spare" time.. I hang out with my kids doing random fun activities. I bake. I cross stitch.

Here you will see stories and photos about all of those things.

I also have an etsy shop so you may see shop related news,sales, and additions.

I'll start with my current WIP's.

First, Joan Elliott's Spring Fairy. I'll have a progress pic up soon..

Second, Bohemia.

and Lastly, Cupcakes by Lucie Heaton
