What happened?!?!

All right, I hate the fact that every time I feel like I am getting ahead in things, for some reason a few days later I feel like I have fallen so far behind that I'm barely staying above water! I don't mind what put me behind this time, but I sure feel like I've been playing catch-up ever since. I really enjoy traveling home to visit friends and family, but I never seem to get anything done when I am there and then I come home to three times the work that needs to get done! It's time for me to stay put for a while!

So because of this I have done very little to stay up to date with my crafting, and keeping the Etsy site current. My goal for February is to find my balance again! Although I haven't gotten very far with the quilt I've been working on, I am finally piecing it together, a very little bit at a time, and it is actually beginning to look like a quilt!! Yay, lol! Here's a photo update:

No new cards, scrapbook pages, or pictures to post. This disappoints me since we all know how much I enjoy all of those activities. The fact is that I am quickly approaching graduation and that means finding a "real" job, moving, and beginning to pay back the thousands *eek!* of dollars that I borrowed to get this degree I am horrified I won't find a job in! Although this is all the more reason to do the things that I enjoy and take my mind off of things, I always have been a little backwards.

Enough worrying about my future for today, I won't be graduating if I don't get caught up with my homework which is really what I should be doing right now rather than writing this. Just think only 7 more weeks till spring break...ugh!!!

(Sorry this kind of turned into a rant more than an update on my creative side. I promise I will try to do better at not doing this, but I just have a lot on my mind right now.)

Also please let me know what you think of the new design of the blog, it's a work in progress! =)

Happy New Year

I know, I know, I promised to post more after finals were over, and here it is a new year and I haven't posted anything for over a month. Well what do you want from me, I am a procrastinator, lol. I do have a good excuse though for having not posted, after finals I was traveling and just returned a few days ago. Long enough to do laundry, buy books for this semester, and turn around and leave again. Go figure. In any case believe it or not I have gotten a bit of crafting done, how you may ask since my paper crafting supplies take up a good portion of my apartment? Well I received this for Christmas:

Which means I've been working on these:

As a matter of fact I almost have an entire quilt done! I also made a bag which is exciting! So be looking for new quilted items soon! Hopefully in a few weeks when I have been at home for longer than a week I will get back to card making, scrapbooking, and painting. Right now though I need a vacation from my vacation!

My crocheting which I normally do a lot of this time of year is sitting in a bag in my living room. My new kitten Luna seems to enjoy crocheting as well, she just does it differently than I do, pulling all the yarn all over my apartment! I think it is safer for both of us (her physically, and me mentally) to put it away for a little while. I need to sell what I have anyways, so be sure to check out the Etsy site!

I hope everyone had a safe holiday season, and I can't wait to get back on schedule and get some more crafting done soon! =)
