Incredible DJ Earworm

I posted his 2009 video New Years of 2009 and completely forgot about this guy! Here's his 2010 New Year's video. Enjoy!

First Pair Sold

These little Mary Jane's are for a co-worker's granddaughter for Easter. She's 2 and a half and loves to play dress-up and loves pink. She's a girly-girl and these shoes are just what she needs ;)

I got the idea about 6 months ago to start making baby booties. It utilizes my creativity, is easy to do and takes hardly any time at all to make. Time is what I don't have being a full-time working mom of a one-year-old. I am working my inventory up to sell these on Etsy. In the mean time, if you would like any custom made, leave me a comment and I'll get working on them!


These shoes were a rendition of a pattern I bought from

Jelly Roll Ups

When I was a kid, my favorite treat was something my mom made for me called Jelly Roll Ups. It's simple really.

To celebrate the birth day of our son, Isaac, we were all blessed with colds in our noses. All three of us got big bang explosive snot simultaneously. It hit Isaac first the evening prior to his first birthday party and within 24 hours, we were all down for the count.

I find myself wishing illness upon others. It's not very Christian-like, that's for sure. But when you are in the midst of suffering... And now it lingers. It's been a week and I still sound like a 60-year-old chain smoking cat lady with a New Jersey accent, hacking up...well I'll spare you the details. I even developed the accent for amusement purposes.

At this point I'm asking "Eli Eli lema sabachthani?" Perhaps God wanted me to suffer this week so that I can have a tiny glimpse into real suffering. It is very very tiny in comparison. Suffering is what we Christians celebrate this "Holy Week". Jesus' suffering...much more than my tiny cold. I am physically reminded to take a look at what true suffering is and what it means. And as I reflect, I find myself wondering if I praise God for who He is, what He has done, and what He will do? Or are my praises in hopes of selfish fulfillment? Are my prayers to have him heal me of this cold when they should be lifting Him up for the truly amazing God He is? There's nothing in this life that can compare to what He has done for me. And there's no amount of suffering I can endure that He has not ten-fold. So I praise you, God, for giving me this cold as a reminder of what I should be grateful for. And as a gentle reminder to quit my bitching.

Where has time gone?

I sat down in my chair tonight and though, "I will blog tonight. Yes, tonight I will blog." But the thought never crossed my mind that it has been almost an entire year without one entry.

My days seem long and yet so fast. I feel as though I have three days a week, unlike the common seven. Monday through Friday have become Monfriday. Then I have Saturday and Sunday. I guess that's what happens when you are a full time working mommma. Still, after a year of finding a new normal, I have yet to establish what normal is. Finding the balance between have to's and want to's is the daily routine. But when the have to's have had and the want to's begin, that is where I find I'd rather be living this rollercoaster of Monfriday's, Saturday's and Sunday's than go back to seven days a week normal.

Life is good.
