The Fearful Blogger

Sometimes you read something, and it really makes you think!

Not So Great Birthday

Today is my 31st Birthday. I kind of wish today had never happened…or maybe, had happened differently. At least the day is almost over, and I can start fresh tomorrow. The day started very early for me, as I was up at 4 a.m. with insomnia, but I was happy enough to start the day […]

I don’t know if this face means she likes the weather or not! Regardless, we all got lots of fresh air yesterday in the beautiful sunshine and warm temperature.  After a morning out with friends at Riverside Park, Gwyneth played in her saucer, Liam splashed some toys around in his wading pool, and Stuart cleaned […]

For That Special Geeky Someone

I hate to admit it, but I recently scored higher than my husband who is *ahem* a web-designer on an on-line “Am I A Geek” Test. Oh the shame, oh the humiliation, oh… who cares!!! Actually, if truth be told I think that my “ever so slightly” higher score was due largely in part to […]

I saw this idea on another blog recently, and I thought it was a great way for people to get to know more about me. Basically, I am just going to take the next hour, and write down 101 things about myself. Whether you read this for pure interest, nosiness, or out of sheer boredom, […]

How To Make a Summer Purse

It may be cold outside, but I am dreaming of summer, and sewing up a storm inside! I made this saucy little bag the other day, and it turned out pretty cute (if I do say so myself!) Now, if only we could get rid of this snow, I might actually be able to use […]

How to Make an Easy Tote Bag

Cat Can Sew…so…Yesterday, I made this cute diaper bag (every bag these days is some form of diaper bag!) I am by no means a “sewer” and had purchased a couple of easy patterns to try.
