Hey guys! Now that I have a small business, and am tyring to appear slightly more professional, and wish to make myself more easily found on the internet, I have started up a new blog! Find me at . I really loved the anonymity this blog provided me in relation to my real life, but the time has come to just be me for all to see. Hahahaha, I'm cracking myself up. My new blog will be geared more toward the creative side of my life, but I'm sure my whole life will peek through too. I hope that if you followed me here, you will head over and follow me at the new space. I know basically this is a personal invitation to my one reader (you know who you are!) but just know that I am super excited for my new space and content and you should be too!

it's been a while

Here's some of what I've been up to for the last few months! This Christmas season has been a great one so far, and my business is finally seeing a little growth, which is so encouraging.
This beautiful photo was taken by my amazing friend Katie Decker, she also took my family photos which are flipping awesome. I made the mermaid tail using a fellow crafter's pattern.
The basketball headband is one of a kind as far as I know. Gotta represent, GO CATS!
The Baby Necktie is a pattern I wrote myself, and you can find it here!
Buntings are so festive!
Camo Owls, perfect for deer season in Kentucky.
This Baby Shark photo prop is also a pattern I wrote myself! You can find it here.

Had to throw a picture of at least one of my kids in here!

I hope to be back in this space at least a little more regularly, but I'm sure it will be after the new year before I have time! On the other hand, I have plenty of time for Twitter and Facebook, so you can find me there instead for now! No, Really. I need more love on twitter. I only have, like, 7 followers. It's really sad. But totally fun.

Chain Four

It has been forever since I last posted, but I just had to share this! My crochet business Chain Four is really moving this summer! I finally have a facebook page and my website is sort of in the works (I have my domain, but it's going to be a while before it's up and running--hopefully before the end of the year!!) I am concentrating on children's accessories and photo props right now, with plans to add new items very often. Come "like" me on facebook!
 If there is anything I can crochet for you just let me know! I am just beginning to take orders in addition to selling at a couple local stores--Kentucky Soaps, and the Little Butterfly Bowtique--two really unique and beautiful stores in Stanford and Lancaster.
Let me know if you have any questions or orders. I am so excited about my business growing!

flowers for fun

After last weekend, I was worn out with painting! But today the mood struck, so I sketched some flowers and used some brighter colors than I got to use during beach week :) We had a very nice morning outside and are all playing quietly for rest time. (it doesn't always happen that way!)

(Lest you think my life looks idyllic, a mere 30 minutes after these photos were taken I was cleaning vomit up off the kitchen floor.)

In other news, it has been a good week at our house. We have been keeping the house pretty neat, and I have been organizing. Now if I can only keep the momentum up through the weekend! Here's hoping that basketball and fun and church searching don't leave the house in shambles by Monday!

mural completion

The mural is (mostly) complete!! What do you think? I didn't paint the birds but did paint the ocean and the trees. There is also a tiki hut in progress on the other side of the kitchen. I'll keep you updated on the progress:)

original artwork thursday

Still working on the beach mural... I dragged in an old piece of drywall to practice with acrylic paint on a larger scale. I think I'm going to be ready by this weekend to paint that mural! I'm really excited. This has challenged me to work outside my comfortable small watercolor zone and I'm glad for that.

original artwork thursday

I know it's Friday, but I don't want to abbreviate my title to O.A.F., so there you go!

This weekend I'm supposed to help my sister in law paint a beach themed mural in her kitchen, so I have been practicing. I hope it goes well! If it does I might post pictures. Hope your weekend is lovely!
