The new year has started off on a very busy foot for me. Although there have been a lack of posts in the recent weeks(s) thanks to a super full plate work-wise, parenting-wise, and almost three feet of snow outside, my last blog
has made its way around the internet via Facebook posts… Continue

He was a lonely inmate, I was just trying to sell some crap on Etsy... and now some creep has my personal info. A cautionary tale, with of course a bit of humor.
Let's just say, I won't be doing Etsy anytime soon, and if I do I'll be following my rules.
Thanks for… Continue

Ok, so I finally am caught up in the Angry Bird madness. My husband and son have been playing for months, then my youngest joined them, and now I am hooked. What is it about those crazy birds? My oldest has already decided that his birthday party will have an Angry Bird theme, and is wanting some kind of cake with the birds and pigs. Yea right. I'll get right on that. Because I sew and don't bake, I could have a problem. But I did make these cute party favor masks that have been a… Continue

Why Organic Clothes?
You may be thinking, the baby wont eat the clothes so why pay more for organic? I know the trials of choosing which items to pay more for when you are shopping for baby. As I have stated in my other blogs I am a bargain shopper and love a good deal. However, when it comes to the cloth your baby sleeps on or wears I ask you to consider not cutting corners. Organic clothes are not only… Continue

Feels like I haven't I haven't posted all weekend. Oh wait, I haven't. Sorry wonderful people who read my blog. I've been working on a little side project that took up most of my free time this weekend. Continue
But today I thought I'd give you a tutorial on how to take some "product shots." You know, pictures of things like jewelry or food or anything that you want to take a photo of but you want it to have a white background and to be sitting on a white surface. Does this make sense?…

So it was the day before my very first craft show. In the morning I meticulously.....okay who am I kidding.....I obsessive compulsively checked and rechecked my lists and boxes to make sure I had everything I "needed". Not knowing what to expect, I had compiled lists using suggested guides of "what to bring to…

In opening my new store on Etsy (MooseandWormy), I decided that I would give away all my designs for free on my blog. I am a firm believer in free crafting. Most of us have more skills than cash, and it seems dumb that we all have to reinvent the wheel every time we try to make something new. Silly. So, I give away all my designs for free.… Continue
