This is the personal blog of a married LDS (Mormon) woman. I am 31 years old and will be keeping this blog up to date with my crafting hobbies, day-to-day experiences, my religion, friends, and family.
Sorry I've been MIA for so long. I have posts to do up, but April burned me out... So bear with me and hopefully I'll have some get up and go.

In talking with my little sister, I've found she often does the same thing, though she's a little more extreme with it than I am.
This year, as I unpacked and organized my craft room from our move last October (it wasn't set up until after my emotional breakdowns and getting that personal space back has been essential in my recovery), I decided to go through it slowly.
