Hello there...

Do you ever feel like you need ten more hours in the day?

Or maybe ten more clones of you just so you can get everything done?

I am sure all moms feel this way at one point or another.

I have felt this way so much over the last few months. I have all this stuff to do and I just can't find the time to fit it all in one day.

Between being a mom, a wife, taking care of three dogs, making sure the house is clean, working out, and wanting to craft I feel like I am pulled in a million different directions.

Add on top of that, wanting to start my own ETSY business and get into craft shows.

But today is the start. I've been wanting to start a craft blog for a while now and today I am starting it.

Sorry for the not finished design but I gave myself a deadline of March 1st to get this blog up and running. And that would be today.

And I honestly feel like if I don't just launch the blog I never will. It will just be another thing added to my list of things I will eventually do.

(I will be working on the design and links over this week and next.)

So if you don't know me my name is Lindsay.

I living outside of Houston which I love. I practically live in tank tops and flip flops. And I hate the cold weather so Houston is the perfect place to be.

I am the mom of a ten year old who has high functioning autism. And the wife to a traveling husband in the oilfield.

We have three dogs (two labs and a great dane).

And my mom lives with us. She moved in with my dad a little over a year ago.

Eventually I will share the story but my dad passed away September 30, 2016 from ALS. He was diagnosed in 2014 and also developed FTL dementia.

And due to that I have been dealing with some depression.

Depression works in weird ways. The first two months after my dad died I didn't even realize I was experiencing some depression. I just thought it was natural grief that would eventually pass.

But after two months of not sewing, making wreaths, painting, or doing any crafts I realized it was probably some grief. And some depression.

And there were other things too but I will go into that another time and day.

Today I just want to say hello and introduce the blog.

I will posting crafting tutorials, crafting tips, colors that I love crafting with.

I will post about painting, sewing, crocheting, using the Silhouette machine (what a Silhouette machine is), and whatever else I can get my hands on.

I will also be posting about fitness and my workout journey, recipes, and of course cute pictures of my dogs!

Like the title says - This blog will be mostly about crafting ... with some life in between.
