My name is Jill and I'm a working mom with two kids who likes to be crafty when I can find the time. I'll try pretty much anything at least once!

I'm passionate about my family, wine, chocolate, crafting, scrapbooking, cooking and photography.
I could do without stupid people (they are everywhere) and smooth surface cooktops (don't even get me started).!
My kids (along with with my DH) are the light of my life.  I was meant to be a wife and mom. While frustrating at times (hello, teething babies and stubborn 3 year olds), it's the best job in the world!
I’m a book worm and pretty creative.  My problem is I can't 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).  
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.
