Ultimate Blog Party - woo!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008Thanks to Shannon, I just discovered the Ultimate Blog Party! As usual, I'm late, but I'm going to blame the child (also, as usual) and I figure there's still plenty of time. Basically, it's a way to share your blog with others, and maybe win some prizes too! See the link at right, or above.

So for those of you who are new to my blog...about me
...hmm...well, I'm crafty, as the title implies. In fact, I guess I'd say that my craftiness borders on compulsion. You'll know what I mean if you've ever seen my giant collection of yarn. Or my "office." Mostly I like to knit, although I also occasionally crochet, and try to sew. I pretty much always have at least 3-4 projects going at any given time. I also love food, which I know technically doesn't qualify as crafty, but if I can't break my own rules, then who can? I also randomly pick up a new hobby here and there, and at this point I've probably tried everything out there at least once.

I also have a "sister" blog which is a little more...shall we say, snarky in nature? Although these days, it mostly focuses on TV, since that's pretty much how I spend my evenings - knitting in front of the television. But other than watching too much TV, I'm a stay-at-home mom to a very active 1-year old. Originally from Chicago, now living in Texas. That probably sums it up. I love comments (who doesn't?), so comment away on anything you like, hate or whatever.
