For the month of November, I’m participating in a sort of sister project to NaNoWriMo – NoBoPro (aka the Notebook Project). The goal is to fill a notebook cover to cover in 30 days. I bought a three-pack of Moleskine soft cover notebooks I found on sale at Target. I browsed Pinterest for ideas of… Continue reading Embroidered Notebooks
I was perusing Michaels.com’s project ideas section a while ago and fell in love with this project. I got the supplies on sale (and with coupons!) and got to work.

Every year there’s a big, two-week campaign in September to raise money. There’s a gift basket silent auction, a guess-the-number-of-candy-in-the-jar… Continue reading Cubicle Sweet Cubicle
I’m still stitching along on this one. I haven’t been as diligent as I probably should be with my time. I’ve started down the slippery slope of looking at all the projects I’ve started or committed myself to and freezing in anxiety. But! If I really want to make cross stitch into my full time… Continue reading WIP: Pentatonix Custom Stitch (2!)
