Joy the Baker Podcast: 2 very funny ladies. Love this show! Listening through the entire back catalog now.

Life in Focus
I recently did a photo shoot with 3 month old baby.

  • Some handy props were:
    • Various colored blankets (I brought black, red and green)
    • A small chalkboard & chalk
I also bought a Canon 60D just before recording this episode! 20% off at Ritz's going out of business sale. Couldn't pass it up!

Holiday Knit-a-Long is in progress! We're splitting this into two sections with prizes at the end of each.
Section 1: September 1- October 31st
Section 2: November 1- December 31st

One prize for Section 1 is a skein of yarn donated by OhLoops! They have gorgeous handpainted yarn. Check out their Etsy Shop.
More prizes to be announced soon.

To get you "in the spirit," I talked through my holiday knits from 2011 (all 16 of them). Here are the links to those projects:
