I Finished my Self-Drafted Bag, BUT…

I don’t have a pattern for you.  *Braces herself for the pelting with rotten veggies*  I bit off more than I could chew, and my head just won’t walk me back through it.  In fact, my head wouldn’t even let me touch my keyboard to write about it  It’s now SEVEN months later, I had to ask my incredible hubby, Mr. Justcraftsh*t, for my login info…  But wait!  Before you go gallivanting off to a better blog, I *do* have more goodies in the works.  Better goodies.  I think…  More details in my next post.  Unless my brain explodes, which it has been threatening.  Anywhoo, ’til we meet again… Continue reading

Sneek Peek – One Shoulder Back Pack

So – not-so-recently the Just Craft Sh*t family added a new member, Rosie the dog.  She is charming, adorable, scruffy, smart, and a COMPLETE PSYCHO TERROR.  She fits in well.  🙂

Anyway, this means I am taking impromptu trips to Rosie’s bathroom (aka – walks around our apartment complex).  Not normally a huge problem, slip my phone and keys into a pocket and off we go, but now it is almost summer.  It’s getting warmer, and those summery dresses and skirts don’t tend to have pockets, and I need my hands free to contain the PSYCHO TERROR BEAST.  My purses are all huge (something that happens to all of us once momhood hits), and I don’t want to have to keep adjusting something on my shoulder while keeping everything small that moves safe from her wrath.  And I wanna make something!  Something like… Continue reading

FREE Pattern: Tooth Tooth Fairy Pillow

Reviving a Lost Love

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything.  Too long.  And there is a good reason why.  I don’t believe I’ve mentioned it before, but I suffer from chronic depression and fibromyalgia, two crappy conditions that feed off of each other until I am this tornado of pain and foul moods permanently camped out on the couch with cheese curl crud embedded under my fingernails.  I *do* take medications (yes, that is plural) to fight the depression, but they just haven’t been enough lately, and never really were.  So – enter the backup depression fighters – Mr. JustCraftSh*t and an old, lost love – painting!
