Free Sewing Tutorial: Re-purpose Old Jeans

It seemed like my husband was constantly “misplacing” his glasses, keys, tech toys, etc. One day out of sheer desperation I decided he needed a bag of some sort. So, from an old pair of raggy jeans and some left over blue cotton, the Murse was born. Enjoy...

Being Frugal: Padded Lens Cozy Stashbuster Project

I love this cozy! While playing with my camera one day I knocked over my larger lens. My heart stopped beating! Thankfully it was fine … no damage done. I really needed something to protect my glass but my budget wouldn’t allow it. Then it hit me like a...

Basic Sock Yarn Mitten

Well this naughty kitten lost her mittens! It was such a cold day. These mittens were a first for me in two ways. First I had not attempted gloves before and they were hunter’s mitts. Second it was my first time working with mohair. I loved how the...

Finding the Unfindable J.O.B.

I’m no longer counting days of unemployment. Way too discouraging. It’s a full time job finding a job. “How can this much effort net little return??” Turn on the T.V. or read the news. You’ll find there is somewhere in the neighbourhood...

Day 8 of Unemployment – Did Not See That Coming.

Well the smart ass statement “don’t burn your bridges…” is possibly a lie! The call I received from a previous employer turned out to be another slap in the face! I’m beginning to think companies are no different than people…maybe...
