I was just wasting time on enjoying Pinterest, when I saw some crochet pins referencing Crafty Andy, and from there I linked to Lady Linoleum and remembered my own old craft-slash-random blog that I left hanging out here in the interweb universe.  I've been desperately wanting to reconnect more deeply with my inner creative monster, and have not done a great job of it, despite making it a 2013 resolution and creating a FB group around the whole idea.

Now, I often get excited about new blogs, only to let them die a slow and painful death.  I doubt anyone is still even following this blog, and that doesn't really matter.  I want to start blogging again.  I want to start creating again.  I miss my crafty friends "out there" that I never met in person, but who inspired me and lifted my spirits during some darker times.  SO, we will see how this goes.  I just bought supplies for a small-scale project that I will be starting tomorrow.  Let's start with that...

Under Construction

I just came across a blog that I found really inspiring. I've been neglecting this one since things have gotten so crazy, but I'm ready to give it a 'makeover'. While nobody follows this blog any longer (and I don't blame them), I really miss blogging, and am ready to head in a new direction!!!

I went up to Chicago to see my good friend Andy Oliver (from Washington state) who is in CPT training. It was a QUICK trip. But I tried to snap some impressions of this great city.

All of the cool wall art and graffiti is from the Pilsen area (aka the "Little Village")
