Been a long time since I blogged :)

Well I guess it's time to kick this blog back into use. I've kind of lost the scrapbooking mojo. It's been a couple of years since I've done a layout. I miss it but at the same time I don't. Jacey has hit the age where she doesn't want her picture taken obsessively like I used to. No activity could go on without a camera in her face so I guess I'm to blame for her hatred of having her picture taken. :0) One day I'm sure she will appreciate the pictures I did take of her but for now she doesn't. The camera comes out and the eyes start rolling and the shewing starts. So now I only snap the important stuff and her being goofy. She always willing to have her picture taken if she is getting to act like a goofball. :)
Anyway my new hobby is sewing. I've always dabbled in sewing here and there. I could sew a hem if needed or repair a tear but I had never really sat down and decided "hey I'm going to make a purse today" until now. Thanks to Jody, his mom and sisters I'm the proud new owner of a brand spanking new Brothers sewing machine. Thank you all for the wonderful birthday present. Makes turning 40 alittle better.
I've sewn a few simple tote bags for Jacey to put her lunchbox in. I've also made a fall purse. It turned out alot better than I thought it would. Yesterday I made a case for my Kindle Fire HD 8.9. I really love the way it turned out.
So now that I've caught the sewing bug what will my next adventure be???
