Coming Home...

Well, I haven't written in a couple of days, because I have been spending time with my husband, who just got back from a deployment. He is finally home after 6 months of being gone. Just before left we found out that I was pregnant with out first child. I was only 7 weeks when he left, so he hasn't gotten to see me grow, but he is now home and I am 8 months along. So we got video of him seeing me for the first time with a belly. It's priceless. Watch the video and see for yourself.

Coupons... worth it?

I have found that saving money is wonderful (not a new concept, but just felt the feeling of joy). I mean I have heard about the hype and known that saving money is better than spending, but it wasn't until I started doing it, that it actually makes you happy. Like giddy feeling and everything. I know to those of you who have been doing it for a while are like "duh", but to those of us who were skeptics I can now say the numbness from cutting coupons is worth it! Finding the deals where you can is awesome. Now I know some people who are still skeptics are saying "if you start cutting coupons you don't save money when you end up buying things you wouldn't normally buy if it weren't for the coupon." I said the same thing, but then I really evaluated whether the item was something i never purchase or something that might be a different brand of what I do get.

First Steps (crafts)

First attempt...

This is the first blanket I have ever made. I saw similar blankets and thought that it looked rather easy to assemble, Boy was I wrong. It took me several attempts to pin the darn thing, and then I had to resew some of the pining. It did end up turning out pretty good, and I am glad, because it's for my new little one on the way. I am sure she wouldn't have minded if it was a disaster, but I would have.

First Steps

So this is my first post... I am pretty excited about this journey. I have lots to say, and now I have my own forum to say it. I am going to try and describe what kind of blog this is going to be for those of you who are wondering. I love to do crafts, like sewing, crocheting, photography, and painting. I just got back into them and have been having fun with them. For the most part I don't consider myself a crafter, or a photographer. I just love doing them as hobbies. If something comes of it then so be it.
