Show Calf Onesie

Now that the shower is over I can share the Show Calf Onesie I made for CP's sister!
Upclose of the calf, I thought it needed a touch of something, so I got pink with white polka dots.

And on the left hip!
I do customize these for purchase. Email me at with questions

Why am I blogging?

This is the question I have been asking myself lately. Usually I am not a touchy feely blogger, but today I am going to lay it out there. I haven't been posting much lately and think the reason is I have been doubting myself! Why blog, who reads it, does it really matter.......and the list goes on.  I have a lot going on in my life, so its not that I don't have anything to write about. Maybe I think other people do a better job writing and advocating and crafting and sharing their stories.

Do any of you ever get caught up in the stats page on blogger?  I was looking at that and it didn't help out with my motivation to write, my stats have dwindled and so has the desire to keep blogging. I don't want to quit, I really enjoy the "friendships" I have developed through blogging.  I keep telling myself, blog for those who are my real friends and social media friends that follow me and don't worry about the rest. I have read a few other bloggers and their advice on blogs is to write what you want, focus on the audience you want, and don't worry so much!

Maybe I haven't been cultivating my blogging relationships: not commenting on others posts and supporting them, reading theirs, and promoting others. So there is another challenge I am going to be working on more!

So hang in there with me and hopefully this is just a blue funk I am in!
