transition

i’m in a time of major life changes, and i’m hoping that when the dust settles, i’ll have a bit more time to dedicate to all of my crafting, cooking, baking, and creating! i finished grad school in may, and got a job offer a few weeks later from an institution back home. the fella and i are thrilled to be moving back to the twin ports area! we’ll be within a few hours of both sets of parents, closer to siblings and close friends for visits, and will have a few sets of close friends right in town. we’ve found a cute lower level of a duplex to rent and are moving a week from today. we’ve got a couple weeks to settle in, and then i’ll be starting my new job on july 16th.

so, lots of big things happening, which means the blog will be on the backburner for a bit – but i’ll be back and hopefully more crafty than ever! crafting/cooking priorities for once we get settled are:

  • making a t-shirt quilt
  • finishing the granny square afghan i started about 6 months ago
  • finding some new dinner recipes to add to our repertoire

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
