I never put much thought into moth protection before. While I lived with my mother, the only fiber chewing pest I…… Continue reading A Fiber Artist’s Worst Nightmare…
Last week I decided to rearrange my craft room again. When we first moved into the house, I had put my cube shelves against the wall near my desk. It was a short lived arrangement, and they were moved to the opposite side of the room, stuck perpendicular to the wall, back to back, which…… Continue reading Rearranging & Reorganizing
So, I think I totally lied about being more on top of things and creating podcast/vlog episodes more often. Unintentionally, of course, but all the same, there hasn’t been a new video posted on The Perpetual Crafter YouTube in about 2 months… We made it to a 14, which is an oddly even number; there’s…… Continue reading An oddly even number

Oh it’s that time. When you start seeing the Instagram pics from the current fiber fest. I got to attend Rheinbeck for the first time this year, so there’s really no complaints, but I’m not sure I’ll ever make it to EYF, just for the fact that it’s in Scotland. Air fare and hotels are…… Continue reading #NotAttendingEYF

I got caught up in a bad combo of work stress, mild seasonal depression, the usual migraine nonsense, and trying to get back into a workout and meal…… Continue reading I’m back!
