When It is Time to Start Again…(thoughts from Heather)

Hello old friends. I know I have been silent for some time, and many of you who follow me over on our Facebook page know much of that has been because of personal illness and physical challenges that have rocked my world since October 2017. For a time, I had to set aside my passion [...]

Loving the Little Things…

Late Summer has come with all its rush to abundance. Days are long and filled with sunlight. And also filled with work. Its that time of year where everything is rushing to be finished and completed before the cold months return and wipe their efforts away for another long winter. Day to day the girls [...]

Dear “Jesse”–an open letter to the guy who I wish I knew in REAL life…

       Dear Jesse, Its been 1187 days since the beginning of our rather strange relationship, and I felt that I should finally openly introduce myself. You see, believe it or not, I know quite a bit about you, and have talked with many of your friends, family, coworkers, students, and probably even your vet by [...]

Our Way of getting rid of STUFF….

At some point in the last 2 years I have come to the conclusion my life would be wayyyyy easier with a lot less STUFF. I mean, STUFF controls my life. My desire for different kinds of STUFF can affect my paycheck. It can take up a ridiculous amount of time picking up not only [...]

Because Yarn is for more than Crochet….

If you happen to be over on our Welcoming House Facebook page, or even on my Handcrafts page, you would be seeing some fun new crochet animals I have been working on for Spring events coming up, and for filling up my Etsy store later in February. Actually, one of the fun things I have [...]

Welcome to a Sweet New Year….

Its the very first day of a beautiful new year, and I love it. Feels like when you open a fresh clean notebook for the first time, and stare at the lovely crisp pages just waiting to be filled with memories like a journal...or notes from conferences you attended. I love how fresh and clean [...]

Silver and Gold…

I have just been through a wonderful experience that I have a hard time wrapping my mind around and putting into words, but I will do my best for you all. As someone who is friendly but perhaps does not make friends easily, I entered into a play production, a musical, with a local community [...]

Let It Begin…..First Day of School!

I laugh daily at the posts I am seeing on social media from  friends, showing them like this.. or this.... or even this.... when their kids head off to school. (If you're the mamma in the last pic, wow, man, you have my sympathies...) Some people get all worked up about those pics, and harp [...]

Dear Friend of a Mom who has Miscarried….

I saw it on Facebook. My heart stopped as I read of the passing of another child that was the heart of one of my friends. A child they prayed for. A child they had yet to meet. A child who was loved and desired, and would have been one of the most spoiled children [...]
