Welcome SITStas!

Hello all my fellow SITStas! I am so excited to have you all over for a visit!

Around here, I like things to be pretty and practical. I believe there is joy in using beauty and art in everyday life and that everyone has creativity of some sort (yes, that means YOU!) I mostly write about my family and all sorts of crafty projects I have going. I like to quilt, knit, crochet, scrapbook, and I'll try just about any crafty thing at least once! I like to make art and craft for good causes and I'd love to get in touch with others who do too! It seems I am always finding a new project :)

I grew up 11 miles down a dusty road from a tiny country town in Colorado. I became a "jane of all trades, master of none" while in the Navy, college, graduate school, and being a high school teacher in the public school system. I am now blessed to be a stay at home mom and wife to a pastor in central Florida. I am in my first year of homeschooling our two elementary age kids (gratuitous photos follow!) Welcome!


Here are a few links to some of my favorite posts:

Good morning and Congratulations on your SITS Day in the sun!

Your children's expressions are beautiful.

Enjoy the spotlight!

Fruitful Vine2 said...

I am more of a morning person myself and I too don't like doing dishes. I love to cook but the dishes, that's another story.

Enjoy your SITS Day!

Lisa in Oz said...

I'm so inspired by your knitting projects! I keep wanting to try it, but I'm usually not very good at that kind of thing and I'm afraid I'd fail miserably lol.

Elizabeth a.k.a. Type A Mommy said...

Congrats on your SITS day, I look forward to poking around. I'm always in awe of crafty people like yourself, given that I don't have a crafty bone in my body! I tried knitting once, was able to knit a little coaster, and that's about as far as I got before I gave up. It was harder than I thought it would be!

Good Morning, stopping by from SITS!

I would love to learn to knit or crochet but can not find the time to take a class and I am not one who can teach myself these kinds of things.

I've got some creative genes from my mom, so that is awesome!

Happy SITS Day!!

Ahh...a crafty mama after my own heart. My family is all from Colorado, still visit Canon City every year to see my Grandma and Pueblo for the rest of the crew : )
I'm working my butt off over here trying to get my craft on before Christmas -- homemade gifts are both fun and stress-inducing for me at this time of year!!

Happy SITS day!!

Fondly,
pink and green mama

Great pics of your kids. Congrats on your SITS Feature Blogger day.

I also believe that everyone has a crafty gene in them, they just have to find it. I wish that I had learned how to quilt from my grandmother, but I was "too busy" at the time and I missed my chance.

Have a wonderful day.

Brandie said...

Congrats on being the featured blogger. What a wonderful family you have!

Emily Dawn said...

Happy SITS Day! I love how you incorporate you family into your projects. I don't have kids yet, but I try to do that too. I find it so much more refreshing to make things for someone else. I'm also really excited about the homemade holidays by Sew, Mama, Sew!

I think homeschooling is wonderful. Most of my college students who were homeschooled were well-educated.

Have a happy SITS day!

teachmama said...

whew! just a little yarn project? I'd love, love the stocking pattern--so cute and I may be able to do it--although I'm only a scarf girl....

:*)

Peggy said...

Love the stocking!

And your kiddos are adorable!

I once thought of homeschooling many moons ago (my kids are now 25 and 22) and the thought quickly passed. I applaud the parents that can and do homeschool. (I would have ended up in prison...love my girls, but we're all a bit on the stubborn side)

Jane said...

Happy SITS day! You've got some good lookin' kids! :)

Whimsical Creations said...

Cute kids! Happy SITS day.

Oh how I wish I could knit...but alas I will have to settle for sewing beause I do not have time to learn another hobby!

Visiting from SITS, happy FB day!

Cynthia at A Shimmy in My Spirit said...

Congratulations on your SITS day. What cuties your kids are...I'm off to see your quilts.

Kelly said...

Happy Sits day!!! Look forward to reading more from you...

Momnerd said...

Cute kids! I used to think that I was a craft reject. Everyone would make fun of me when I tried. And while I don't have much raw artistic ability and I hate any kind of crafts with fabric or needles, I have learned that I am quite creative. I love doing paper crafts and online design. So I agree with you!

Shawn said...

Congrats on your SITS day! Cutie kids....

Have a great one!

Barb said...

Happy SITS day. I homeschool in Colorado now. We will have to compare 'where did you live' notes at some point.

Lady Mama said...

Happy SITS day.

Miss Dot said...

"Jane of all trades, master of none"? Rebecca, you've described me to a T! I know exactly how you feel. Now I have an expression to call myself. Love it!

Happy SITS day! Love your blog and all the craftiness.

Nydia said...

Happy SITS day ... I would love to learn to knit and be more crafty now after perusing your blog ... :-)

Lynn said...

Those kids are adorable! I love your little denim skirt too. I am trying to learn how to knit again. I learned in 5th grade but for some reason after growing up and having a family now the steps have gotten lost in the day to day shuffle.

My best, Lynn
