well said

It is pretty close to coming up to one year since we purchased our cosmetically challenged condo here in Kamloops and we are (unfortunately) still a bit away from finishing our renovations. Once the renos are done then perhaps we will finally be able to unpack our boxes from our move in the summer (oy!) and start actually living in our home instead of just sort of existing here. Throw on a wedding, a change of jobs, two major moves, a giant learning curve, and one heck of a chronic illness roller-coaster and you can certainly understand why things have been so slow moving. Alas - one day things will fall into place again and this lovely little mantra should be plastered on my unfinished walls:
I'm so looking forward to our finished home and new studio so I can get back into more regular crafting, more sharing, and the long awaited reopening of my etsy shop! Oh what a day that will be! In the meaning I am seriously considering making a nice embroidery sampler of the above statement so I can be reminded to have a little patience now and again. How are things coming along with your lives? Do you have any words of wisdom you turn to when times are challenging? 


  1. I think that would make a lovely sampler. My motto for tough times is the old faithful "slow and steady wins the race". Just keep going, and eventually things will work out. Plus, I like turtles ^___^

  2. Nice to hear from you! I think that would be an awesome cross stitch to keep you motivated! I hear you on the difficulty of unpacking and getting everything to that good spot...still unpacking from move in July too :)

  3. Hi Kate, I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
