Well today I made an attempt at getting the Halloween decorations out of the basement and it was an epic FAIL! After about 3 minutes of being down in our scary basement digging for boxes and only finding part of the decorations, I was in the middle of a full blown allergy attack. I usually avoid the basement for this fact, since I am deathly allergic to mold/mildew, but for whatever idiotic reason I thought I would give it a go today, big mistake. So upon realizing that most of the stuff had gotten wet when our basement flooded earlier this year, I managed to get a couple of salvageable items and the rest is pretty much history. So now I am going to desperately try and make some decorations before the fall party that we are hosting for my husbands work colleagues next week. So I'm making an inspiration post of ideas I like. I'm really into black and white and pumpkins this year.
Hi I'm Kim, wife, mom of two, homemaker and crafting enthusiast. I live in a house surrounded by woods surrounded by suburbia. I devote my time to raising my two beautiful children Sweets(6) and Bug(3). They are my motivation, my education, my inspiration and my fan club.
In my stolen moments of free time I have found a love for sewing instilled in me from watching my grandmother sew beautiful clothing and quilts as I was growing up. I'm no where near as good as she was, but I'm learning all the time. I spent several years as a Wedding Photographer, and finally decided I'm much happier photographing the things I want on my own time. I worry too much about what people think of me and have a problem saying no so I am often overextended. I love thrift stores, shoes, Sunergos coffee, fabric, owls, buttons, Sunergos Tea, pumpkins, robots, trees, frozen yogurt, and cupcakes. I dislike birds as pets, heights, murky water, and milk.
I hope you will find something that you relate to here amongst my musings and projects. I hope to share my simple life and the things that amuse and bother me, my sewing adventures and of course the joys and frustrations of being a mama.
