An Amazing Summer Concert | Adele

Last week, my husband surprised me with Adele tickets as an early Birthday present.  She played at the Excel Energy Center in St. Paul after rescheduling earlier in the summer due to laryngitis.  We were lucky to get to go; that we were in town for the new show date and that Jason could get tickets at all.  In a word, the show was: amazing.  Simply incredible.  Continue reading

Oh, hi there! | The Official First Post

This blog is the result of my love for two things: crafting and blogging. I love both, and I especially love when the two collide.

I have been crafty for as long as I can remember.  It all really started in college with scrapbooking and quickly evolved from there.  I quickly added knitting, sewing, beading, and a bunch of other fun crafts to my hobbies. Continue reading
