Cleaning and Painting and a WINNER!

My life is filled with cleaning and painting, and other random handyman jobs around the home, getting it ready to sell. Sometimes I feel like I’m being punished for choosing to sew and craft when I could have been cleaning the last year or so!

When I’m not cleaning and painting, I’m too exhausted to do much else, and a teething toddler isn’t helping. But I think we’re finally getting on top of all the odd jobs, and when my husband finishes up his current job, we’ll hopefully have a bit of family time before we move. I’m definitely looking forward to that!

I’m really missing my sewing machine. I’ve discovered that sewing is stress relief for me and I’m really itching to get back on the pedal. A few more jobs to do, then maybe I’ll sneak in some sewing time!

And lastly, we have a winner for the My Memories Suite giveaway:


Congratulations Farrah, who said: “My favorite is Teen Sceene & Summer Party! I also REALLY Like Oh Boy!”

For those of you who didn’t win, you can still pick up My Memories Suite for $10 off using the code STMMMS18635 and you also receive $10 store credit.


  1. But sewing and crafting are always much more fun! I would have done exactly the same. Good luck getting your house spick and span.
