Spring “in the Making” Here at HHC

Spring has finally arrived!!  With it has come the green grass, tree buds and growing hay in the farm field outside my at-home office/craft area window.  I’m so glad Spring has finally come because I have finally unpacked a majority of our boxes from our move and I am ready to breath a fresh new life into my blog as well as my Crafting and Mary Kay businesses!!

If you check out my Heartfelt Home Creates shop on Etsy (here) and on Facebook (here), you’ll be sure to find links to and pictures of the Easter- and Spring-themed wreaths and other products I just made over the past 2 weeks.  It was so nice finally being able to have my own crafting/office space again, thanks to the custom shelf built for me by my husband so that I may have my own little corner of the house to some of my supplies while at the same time sectioning off my own area from the kids’ new play room. For those of you that have your own work space or at-home office space, I’m sure you can completely relate and share in my excitement!

Aside from my crafting business, I have also been able to restart my Mary Kay business!  I have even created a Facebook page (here) for it so that I can connect with my customers, old and new alike, in addition to emails. I love finding new ways to connect with people!

But enough of the “self-promotion”, that’s not why I am writing this post. Instead, I’d like to just jot down some of my blogging and crafting to-do list items.  First off, I just finished reading a great inspirational book about a Christian single mom who, against many odds and obstacles, accomplished so much — it was great! I don’t want to say much more since I will be writing a review of this book in an upcoming post, so in the meantime I hope that you will check back over the course of the next day or two so that you can read more about it!!

In other news, I have been busy crocheting and crafting up some new fabric squares wreaths.  I am excited that this month marked my 2-year anniversary of my shop on Etsy! Right now I am focusing on Easter and Spring- inspired items, and I’ve been having a lot of fun creating them!! So far I’ve made about5 wreaths, as well as egg cozies, bibs, hats, placemats, washcloths (and I have a lot more ideas in my head waiting to be made!).  I think the spring weather we’ve been blessed with here is playing a key roll in energizing my creative side. (*smile*)

As far as blogging goes, I’m looking forward to trying new recipes and sharing them with you. I won’t be able to post recipes weekly like I have in the past since most of my time is now spent keeping up with our two little ones, but I am eager to get a few posts in soon!  There are also quite a few books I have on my “to read and review” list that I am anticipating sharing with you. I was hoping to write some gardening posts, but unfortunately I am unable to have my lovely garden in our new home.  I’m trying to find a way to remedy that, perhaps with a garden in flower pots… I haven’t quite figured that out yet, so if anyone has suggestions on how I can have my veggie garden in our new home (where I can grow tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, lettuce and such) I’m all up for suggestions!!

Well, I hate to end this rather spuratic and random post so quickly, but my little ones are in need of this Mommy’s attention. With that being said, I hope you enjoy the rest of the evening and will check back soon as I retake my blogging by storm!  🙂

There’s Been a lot of “Crafting” Going On!

Hello!  I can’t believe it’s been So Long since I’ve last written a post for my blog!  It’s actually quite embarrassing for me since I love to blog and write my little day-in-my-life tidbits.  There’s been a LOT going on around here, so let me update you with my current life craziness!!

Crocheted Snowman Ornament

My little family has moved to the southern end of the state, in the middle of the country.  It’s a big change for our little guy, who has only ever known our previous home set in a town.  Now he can look out his bedroom window and see the horses grazing on the farm across the road. It’s a nice, positive change though, and I’m looking forward to next summer when I can sit in our yard and enjoy the view of the neighbor’s farm or the horses while I crochet or read.

A lot more changes have come our way since moving other than just the landscape.  We’re living in a home significantly smaller than the last one, so I’ve spent most of my time making our furniture “fit” and moving our belongings around to areas where they seem to work best.  I’m excited about the finished attic area that we have. It’s perfect for an office/crafting area for my husband and I, as well as a family room/play room for our children to enjoy without having to clutter up our small living room with toys and our other things.  I’m hoping to tackle this upstairs area in the very near future so that we can start making good use of it right away! Besides, I’m itching to have my own crafting space again!  Which leads me to my next topic…

I’ve been a crafting machine since we’ve moved, and believe me I’m not complaining! I’m loving it!! I’ve already participated in a craft fair and am signed up for a week-long event for next week.  I’m excited to get back into crafting mode and have found it to be good therapy in the midst of the adjusting from the move, my need to unpack and reorganize everything, as well as adjust to my husband’s new work schedule while caring for our 2 wonderful children (who are under the age of 4).  Lots of adjusting! But thankful for my crafts and recent orders I’ve received to help me relax!  I’m also looking forward to reading books for review again once I get myself organized and into a better routine. 

So, that’s about it.  Just busy with our new home, our new family schedule, and my crafts.  I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! Thank you for reading my post. I am looking forward to sharing with you more of my crafting adventures and other posts!
