It’s been a while since I’ve been here or shared anything new. Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes 🙂
Working on making some life changes and trying to find a way to make a living while doing something that I can be passionate about. Not so easy to do!
I have been crafting. At times it’s what keeps me sane (and the only thing that does!!!). I’ve had 5 baby blankets that needed to be completed (so many babies arriving this fall!) so that has taken up much of my free time.
Photos of some of them are here……Links to the patterns to follow soon. All are gorgeous and so easy to work!
More things to come very soon………I’m excited to be back!!!!
Have you ever had a lot of random stuff lying around and suddenly a lightbulb goes on and you figure out a way to put them together
to make something really cool? That happened to me the other day and the result is my DIY Laptop Desk! All you need is a bulletin
board slightly larger than you laptop, crib-size batting, 1 yard of fabric, and a glue gun!!!
Next, fold the crib size batting into the size of your bulletin board. The batting will be the “pillow” that sits directly on your lap.
Once you’ve done that, wrap the board and batting as you would a package or gift with wrapping paper, hot-gluing the edges as you go.
Once all of the edges are glued you have a cute little Laptop desk! Easy, right? Give it a try!!!
What started out as a little experiement turned into a pretty cool cuff bracelet. Need to add the buttons for a closure and then DONE!

Thank you to everyone who’s placed and order in my Etsy store or requested a custom order!!! Dirty Bird has been busy with customer cross stitch orders like the WIP “DORK” below, soon to be made into a little pillow.
The other little snarky pillow was a gift to my sister-in-law as a thank you for her help with a project. A favorite phrase on the East coast that I think I might have to start using 😉
More custom orders scheduled!
And of course, a picture of my assistant hard at work!

I’ve recently contributed three articles to a fun and inspirational website, Suburban Misfit Moms.
Putting myself out there in this way has been huge for me. Scary and exhilarating !!! My second article covers that topic. Check out my third and latest piece (vent) about Facebook. I hope you enjoy it!
This is Jack. I think he enjoys yarn as much as I do. Maybe for different reasons. He is the Dirty Bird in my house!
