Still crafting :) And the creativity has been flowing! Lots of new items came out of my gray matter, including a lot more Geekery! My husband has been an awesome support .. even though I *KNOW* my bins, bags, and "barely organized chaos" drives him bonkers. And I'm sure that my latest project (Nancy's Naturals Shoppe - click here to see it) must really drive him crazy because it's even more crafty goodness in the house.
I've been debating making a website (outside of Blogger, Etsy, and facebook) for a while now because with both shops and the kids, the house, life in general who has time. Apparently me because my crazy brain had me starting a new website for NRD. Granted, I'm still working on it so it isn't "live" yet. Hopefully it will be in about a week, then I'll post the page here for all to see :)
Well, TTFN (as Tigger would say) :)

His name was Charlie. He started his blog many years before my journey. So when I first got hooked on his blog I had a lot of catching up on. Wow, could that man write!
I havent really been on my blog since forever. And my last post was more of a rush job to get the latest round of Photographer's Delight in. After I logged out I thought "Damnit! I forgot to check and see how Cha-lee is doing!" (Yes, that's the way I hear it in my mind when I thought of his blog). I meant to log back on but was likely side tracked by laundry, the dog needing to go outside, our Munchkin climbing onto something he shouldnt have. And I never got to log back in. Every so often I'd wonder how he was doing. If you didnt know, then I'll tell you .. he'd been really really sick. He kept on blogging through his illness even when he was having trouble seeing.
And so it would go I'd find myself wondering what had happened to Cha-lee and if there had been any more posts at the oddest moments when I couldn't just check the computer - washing dishes, driving the car, in the grocery store, things of that nature.
So tonight I was sitting and crocheting 2 Dalek hats (yes 2 at once, it can be done. I'll show you some time if you're THAT interested) and I thought of Cha-lee and was wondering if he'd blogged his last, or if he was still blogging. The last time I "checked in with Cha-lee" was January, and it would seem that that one was his last blog post. Less than a month later he had passed away. I'm golad I got to read his last blog post when it was still new, and regret not checking in all those other times I had meant to log in (it had been so long I actually had to do a password reset!).
So I will always think of Cha-lee as a well known book that can be read and reread but know that there are sadly no more books in the sequel.
Goodnight, Professor B. Worm

Well, we're all moved into the new place as of the first of August. Our issue is finding room to fit everything since we went down in sq ft and in closet space. We've gone through all the boxes, unpacked and repacked some things. And I'm missing a box of finished crochet goodies that all I had to do was photograph and then post for sale on Etsy :~( Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! (ala Lucielle Ball)
There were also, unfortunately, other things in the box like my pretty colored buttons for some of the things that needed to be photographed. And before we left the old place both my husband and I did more than one walk through each! So disappointed!
Trying not to let it get me down, so I've been working on some new things (check out the shop and the facebook page). Hopefully I'll have things to put up on Etsy as well as a stash because I'd like to do that Fall craft fair again that I did last November. Hopefully being in a new place with a new out look will get me going to get things done .. in a timely manner! Easier said than done with school back in full swing and a teething toddler. But I'll get there! :)

Got the approval on the new place and we are OUTTA here! We moved in on the 23rd of December 2008. In that time the neighborhood has gone so down hill so fast that Olympic skiers are amazed at the speed! From people beating the crap out of each other in their driveways, to the nut bar that beat up his girlfriend with a hammer, to having the street closed by the cops and a mobile CSI unit to investigate a few houses down. Yeah .. it's time to get OUT!
So I've been packing and packing. And throwing away a lot of things. And deciding what furniture goes, what stays, and what will go on the curb. Note to self: Don't forget to clear out the attic!! We can pick up the keys on Friday but won't officially start the lease until the 1st. Our new landlord said we could move in a few boxes ahead of time if we needed to. Might take over some of the clothes and boxes of dishes and things - small stuff we can use our van for. It'll also make it so we might save a trip in the UHaul too!
I feel bad for our duplex neighbors though since they own their 1/2. They are the nicest, sweetest people you could ever meet! They have kids too. And this neighborhood just isn't safe anymore! They're the only people I ever bothered getting to know and I'm actually going to miss living next door to them!
