I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and Winter Blessings. This has been a great year for me and my family. The children are growing and learning at an amazing rate and my husband and I have to adjust. It is a big change to go from innocent, cute babies to intelligent, head-strong children and pre-teens!
I plan on making many resolutions - as I always do - and I will get those out soon. But in the mean time, I wanted to look back at the year. I learned how to let go of friends who don't want to be friends and depend on my family, who is always there for me. I have learned how to work without letting my job be who I am. And I have learned how to savor the moments that make me proud, instead of beating myself up over all of the things that could have been. Of course, these are things I learned this year but have to practice everyday. These things have been a large part of who I am for so long that changing my train of thought will be difficult.
Blogging and following all of the inspiring people out in blogland has been very rewarding. I intend to do more of it this new year. Of course, I am cleaning out the craft room and refocusing my hobbies...Happy New Year! SUE
Welcome to Octobergirls! My daughter, Sydney and I are October girls. We love decorating and crafting for Fall: Halloween is our favorite! I love interior design, sewing, rughooking and blogging! Thanks for stopping by. SUE
I am a bonafide fabric-aholic! I love wool, homespun, wool felt, wool applique and primitive rug hooking. I spend my days reading about my craft, thinking about my craft and if I am lucky, doing my craft.
My friend Danielle and I have a craft business called Fabric Confections where I am Sew Cute and she is Sew Sweet. We do local craft shows and get together to create our fabulous fabric confections.
I have been married over 18 years to my high school sweetheart, Scott, and have three beautiful children: Nick, 9, Jacob, 7 and Sydney 3. The boys play Club soccer with the TNT Dynamite which keeps the whole family very busy. I work full-time at the Lansing Indoor Sports Arena so I can be at all the practices for soccer too.
Soccer and primitive wool crafts - isn't that natural? It is to me.
