On Spoonflower…

I have this print that I made for their pattern contest with the theme of rain…This is a close-up sideways view of a large repeat that spans the entire fabric.

Prairie Girl…

No matter how far I move from North Dakota, no matter how many pieces of well designed furniture fill my house… somedays I still just want to sit in the middle of a great big field and see NOTHING…. Its nostalgic, and self-indulgent, but I want to.. it was where I would run away to when I was growing up, especially as a teenager, there was a field that I would go to and just sit… and the breeze there is always a breeze…

Anyways doing my annual rereading of My Antonia, I was inspired about what I would want to wear on my aprons and full skirts if I was trucking around a farm, ( can’t you tell I have never lived on a farm?) any way check out my new patterns over on Spoonflower

Getting off my Duff…

I need to, its getting flat and its not just genetics, its of taking the easy way out… There is never a better time than now, but you know rewatching the WHOLE tv series of one of your favorite tv shows when you were a kid gets in the way.. I know. Pathetic.. Anyway.. here is a lady who has got it together, and seriously has the cutest boys and greatest ideas…..Please check out I Am Momma – Hear Me Roar

I came across a post she had written on time management and it reminded me of the my own project todo list which has been mostly sitting on the  back plate  ( especially because it seems that there is no one to take my boys for a day or two a week so I can start to consentrate:)  Anyways on my list to do is to create a to-do chore list for around the house because in my opinion, if its on a list were everyone can see, everyone knows what has to get done and I can quit micro managing.  Not quit working but quit going okay I need to do this and this…So hold me to it, by the end of this month I will have a free printable house chore list on my site…..

On a personal note…

“It just seems like, you agree to have a certain personality or something. For no reason. Just to make things easier for everyone. But when you think about it, I mean, how do you know it’s even you? And, I mean, this whole thing with yearbook — it’s like, everybody’s in this big hurry to make this book, to supposedly remember what happened. Because if you made a book of what really happened, it’d be a really upsetting book.”
— Angela, to Ms. Mayhew ( My So-Called Life)

When I was a teenager I was well uh, a force to be reconned with. I never fit in, i always was trying to and I had NO idea who I was. Does anyone ever? Anyways, truth is I’ve never really figure out who I was or who I want to be…starting to, finally… I guess. I am finally trying to make peace with the flake I was, the things that happened and make my life count. I just wonder who I will be, if its worth it, what if the true me is so horrible my kids never want me to be their mom..  I feel like Angela even at the age of 29…
