Sorry I've been MIA! I keep pretty quiet as it is but I've been busy working on a big custom order which I will share with you VERY soon as well as preparing for my twins 2nd birthday (twice, since it had to be postponed due to the blizzard we had!) which included making goodies for them, and their birthday dresses! And then Valentine's Day! Yes - I'm THAT pinterest mom that handmade 2 different Valentines for the girls to give their daycare class friends and teachers. Not so sure that will happen again next year considering how close their bday is to Valentines day! I look forward to sharing some new things I've made starting this week again! Thank you for sticking with me :-)

It's cleaning day at our house and I just finished! Now on to continue with my organizing bug...
I hope one day to be so good that I do a little cleaning in each room every day so I won't need to set aside a big chunk to clean a weeks worth of mess every week. Anyone else able to clean this way?!

01/11/2013

Anyone else have a mad sense of needing to get organized in the new year?! I feel like this EVERY January! And I know not to even kid myself in thinking next January will be any different!

The good thing about going grocery shopping with an upset stomach - I didn't buy any goodies I'd typically pick up, esp. the Milanos that were on sale! I'm sure tomorrow I'll be regretting that!

Looks like another semi unproductive day here - up sick much of the night with the stomach bug and twinsie A had the same!

12/29/2012

Fun date with my husband this morning, wonderful visits from dear friends this afternoon/evening. Now I'm off to bed with my fingers crossed that I'm not coming down with the stomach bug that I was told is going around. I NEVER get sick but my stomach has been doing flips on me for the last 40min....

Taking advantage of daycare today - at the movies with the hubs. It's been at least a year since we've been out together alone! Thought we'd have the whole theatre to ourselves at a 9:30am movie but there's 5 others here with us!

Milford, CT

General information

I'm a mom of fraternal twin girls. And as if toddler twins don't keep me busy enough - when I'm not entertaining, feeding, changing, or washing them, I'm working part time and on my down time (between the hours of 9pm and 2am) I'm either hot gluing my fingers together or you can hear the soft hum of my sewing machine running! One of my girls has LOTS of hair and has become my inspiration to make clippies and barrettes. And every woman knows - girls need their accessories. I myself am a handbag addict and my addiction seemed to settle down a bit when I started making handbags as gifts for others [and myself]. While handbags are a bit more time-consuming I LOVE making them so I will be adding more as soon as I can! This site and my Etsy shop (www.chiknic.etsy.com) are works in progress so if you check back every few weeks there are sure to be new things and hopefully even something you'll want to have as your own!
