Welcome to my blog!  I'm currently a stay at home mom in Michigan who will soon have an empty nest.  For the past several years I have focused on raising my kids and taking care of things at home, but now it's time to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.

It's time for me to go out on a limb.  Try to learn some new skills or improve the skills I've already started learning.  This blog is a way for me to document my progress.  Hopefully there will be some progress.

I want to learn how to take better pictures and edit them,so expect a lot of cat pictures.  My two cats are the only ones in my house that don't talk back when I try to take their picture.  Besides, they are very cute, if I do say so myself.

I also don't cook much anymore but I do like to bake, so I have some recipe posts. I probably won't have many new recipes, but the oldies are goodies.

I don't sew for my own use, but I do like to make sewing tutorials. I have a well stocked sewing room and I would hate for all of my supplies to go to waste. Since my mom taught me to sew when I was in elementary school and I've been sewing ever since, it only makes sense for me to find some interesting things to sew and pass along how I did it.  Besides, my sewing tutorials  are very popular
posts so why not keep it up.

There may even be a glimpse or two of my husband and two kids, but they're a little camera shy.

A blog of my poetry can be found at Renee L Carr. If you like that kind of thing, please check it out.

Thanks for stopping by!
