Other places you can find my work:

A is for Apron: published by Lark Books. An apron design of mine is published in this charming book full of apron projects. Working with the Lark Books editors was a joy and the project was exciting.  My mother thought I should have fought the editors harder on all points but that’s because she doesn’t understand team projects the way I do.

Guest Post at Whip Up: Come read my cool tutorial for making Surprise Bath Bombs for kids.

Stitch and Boots This is my urban homesteading site where I write recipes, sewing tutorials, information on keeping chickens, and all things homesteading for people who don’t have a farm.

Better Than Bullets is my personal online journal where I write about the things inspiring both ridicule and admiration (sometimes simultaneously) in my daily life.  Come to hear stories from the writer’s desk and receive unsolicited advice on absolutely everything.

    Why would you have offended me by sharing that? Were you trying to? Mostly I’m sorry that you have nightmares and suffer from PTSD because I know how hard those are to live with. (Don’t know what MDD is)

    I am notoriously anti-war and anti-military but I am rarely against soldiers who’ve served and fought who have good hearts and open minds.
