Well Hey, There.

Remember me?

I hope so.  If you're seeing this, you used to be one of my readers.  You know, back when I had readers--before my life got crazy and I had time to blog.  But that happens, right?  Things don't go the way you planned, and some things fall by the wayside.

And that's why I'm here. It happened again.  Let me give you the short story.

Two years ago, I was a part time nanny and part time housewife, and also a part time blogger.  I was vaguely interested in going back to school, but it was on the back burner.  We were a little strapped for cash, and fertility treatments were making us even more strapped.

Well, sometimes things line up exactly as they should, and life changes.

I decided to go back to school.  To do this, I sadly had to quit my job as a nanny.  I signed up for EMT school, got a new job at the local hospital, and we got serious about fertility treatments with my new doctor. Things went along that way for a while, and then, happily and miraculously, I got pregnant.  Now, another ten months later, I'm a new mom, and life has changed again.

This is my beautiful new life change, my daughter Evelynne Grace:

Born 04/02/15 at 7:51 AM, weighing 6 pounds 13 ounces, and 19 inches long.

Due to changes at the hospital, I won't be able to return to my job after maternity leave.  So now, here we are, strapped for cash again, and with a newborn in the mix. What's a crafty girl to do?

Craft, of course.

My mom (who, you'll remember, is the original reluctant and crafty housewife) and I have opened an Etsy shop.  We both crochet, and we've whipped up some pretty cool baby crochet items, and also some things for grown ups.  I'll be selling some crafty type things I've made for myself--bow holders, button earrings, etc.

I'll also be getting back to blogging on the regular.  Scouts honor.  Newborns sleep A LOT.  Once again, I find myself with lots of time on my hands.

So, check in once in a while.  Visit the Facebook page.  Have a look around our Etsy Shop.  Most of all, keep your eyes peeled--you'll be seeing a lot of me!
