What’s on your quarantine reading list?

  I’m one of those people that can’t just read one book at a time – I have to have multiple books going at the same time, I don’t know why. Sometimes it’s because I like to read on the train, and a big heavy book isn’t going to cut it, but mostly it’s because I have a short attention…

#The100DayProject2020: Day 1 – 10

How is your 100 Day Project going? After narrowing down my project idea to making whatever I can using my existing supplies, the first 10 days went pretty well after an initial hiccup.

10 ideas for your #The100DayProject

  When picking a project for your 100 day challenge, it can be really intimidating to decide what you think you can commit to for over 3 months.  The key is picking something that can be accomplished in a short amount of time, like 5-10 minutes a day. If you spend more time each day, great, but it’s not necessary.…

The 14 day edit: TV shows to binge watch while knitting
