My first post!

I’ve gone back and forth about starting a blog for a while. I mean, does the blogosphere really need another mom-blogger? There are a bunch out there.  Each as their own twist though, I guess. And after reading some of them I decided to go for it. What the heck!
I’ve been married for twelve years and am a working mom with two kids, a four (almost five) year old son and a one month old baby girl. So, at the moment I’m maternity leave. What better time to start a project! I’m already sleep deprived…why not add another thing to do on top of everything else?
I’m a book worm and pretty creative.  My problem is I can decide on one crafty thing to be my focus. I scrapbook, paint (ok, I’ve only done one painting, but I really like it!), and digital photography (I’m the family photographer and make everyone line up and take pics at the holidays).  One Christmas I made all the girls (on both sides of the family) their Christmas gifts, including decorating the gift bags. (That was before I had my son.)  I love to cook and bake and I’ve sewn pillows (I’m pretty sure I could do curtains if I put my mind to it).  I’d love to learn to make jewelry and maybe pottery.  I’m addicted to HGTV and over the past couple of years, my magazine subscriptions have changed from Cosmo and Glamour to Better Homes and Gardens and Good Housekeeping. Does that mean I’m getting old?  
See my dilemma? I love all of this stuff, and am decent at it…do I want to become GREAT at one thing? Not sure. I kinda like keeping my options open.
Anywho, that’s what this blog is about.  Me, trying new stuff, what worked, what didn’t, maybe some funny stories about what’s going on in my northern town.
