Working hard for the money

One thing that seems to be on everybody’s mind is money, money, money. How to make more of it, how to save it, how to spend it. There are even several songs on the subject springing from every genre and decade. Money is hard to come by these days and it seems as if everything is just getting more expensive while the all mighty dollar is just out of reach, especially if you have a family to care for.
I have been blessed with a husband that works very hard to support myself and my son. I was able to be a stay at home mom for the first two years of my son’s life and now I am going to school; all the while being supported by my amazing husband.
One thing that helps us when funds are running low is the surprisingly lucrative hobbies of crochet and knitting. I don’t have time to constantly turn out projects to sell, but when times get tough I generally can whip up a few things and help out that extra little bit that makes all the difference in making sure we have gas to get to work and school as well as food to put in our bellies at home.

Beginnings

DSCN1411

I’ve always wanted to start a blog and now I am imparting on that journey at last. I have many loves in my life and two of my regular indulgences are wine and crochet. As a mom, a wife, and a college student I have a stressful life by nature. I am a tightly wound person and everything I do in my life is generally trying to relax. Wine is a lovely way to kick back and do just that. Crocheting puts me in a very zin like place. I want to share my knowledge of these two great things so that maybe someone out there can get as much joy from them as I do.
