Fast forward to today..

I’m back!  I spent the day looking at some of my favorite blogs, and found I miss my ME time.  Buying the store last year has been a trememdous amount of work, fun, and gratification.  Now that we’ve survived our first Christmas and Cherry Festival, I feel like I can breathe a bit.  Summer is still a busy time, but I’m learning to balance work and play.

I had two entire days off in a row so I decided to work on my book about my kids.  They have all graduated from high school and I made each of them a few digital scrapbooks of their lives.  One of my hobbies is Photoshop. 

 After discovering Blurb, I decided to put them all into one book and made it for my mom’s birthday.  There were many more photos I wanted to put in it so I’ve been working on adding to it before I get mine printed.  The book is almost done, I could add to it forever and I decided a few more pages and that’s it.

Here’s the cover – very basic, but one of my favorite pics of the kids.

Hats

I love to knit (hence the Etsy store name, JMillenLovesToKnit)..

I also love to use the word HENCE.  He he.

I have made so many chemo caps in the last 2 years that I can literally knit them in my sleep.  I went to see Mama Mia the other night and REALLY wanted to take my knitting… but chickened out.  Maybe next time.

Here are some hats, one is for sale in my shop and the other is going to the oncologist to put in the ‘free hats’ basket.

For some reason I also like to knit baby hats, but there are no babies in my life right now.  The kids are in college and we hope to keep it that way for a few more years!  So I have to list them on Etsy.  Here’s one, I call it the bling hat:

Sure wish I had a real live model!  Some day..
