National Craft Month

Hey, hey!

Sorry it's been such a long time since my last post. A number of events have occurred since you last heard from me... in no particular order:

1)Cory's sister had her baby! Beautiful Sloane is home with mom and doing wonderfully!
2)My grandmother passed away. We enjoyed a beautiful snow shower on the day of her service and burial that wrapped us together and kept us peaceful.
3)Maryland prepared for 50+ inches of snow within 4 days. Needless to say, I was snowed-in and had a week off work.
4)My students took, and (the majority) passed their state mandiated (graduation requirement) test.
5)Our internet/cable has been unplugged due to me needing a major "unplug, rejuvinate, refresh" month. I'm feeling much better now!

So, I need to start fresh (notice the new layout, hey!) and get back into the blogworld. (Shoutout to Ashley who designed the background and is so super awesome and talented!)

Next week is March, which I am so excited for. This means spring is right around the corner, and a ton of local craft celebration! What kind of celebration, you ask?  The Muse, a local handmade shop where I sell Donna's Decembers products, is showcasing a local artist each weekend! I will be on show on March 13, 1-3pm crocheting and mingling up a storm! If you have never spent quality time in downtown Frederick, you should schedule a day trip right away! There are tons of adorable, local shops and restaurants.

I have sooo many new crochet designs to post, I am so exited! The time away from TV & Internet has really pushed me to create many of my own patterns, which I hope you enjoy!

What have you been up to since I have been gone?
