sleepless nights and such

Have you ever been so excited about something that you can't sleep at night?
Also, have you ever been so excited that all you do is dream about that something all night?
This week, I experienced both. It was awesome, naturally. Only is it the worst when you can't sleep out of nerves, for a test or work, or fear of not hearing your alarm - - for said test or work. 

My excitement has been of my new sewing machine!! While at BYU-Idaho I discovered a passion of mine, that being to sew. Not only sewing but everything that goes along with it such as picking fabric at the store, to pressing (ironing), to making up quilt designs, to...okay I will admit, cutting is not my favorite. But only because it takes so much brain power. I am lucky to have my amazing Kasey who helps me with the math of it all [and sometimes the cutting and designs, who am I kidding, he is my right-hand man]. 

I have been thoroughly enjoying my time with "miss" Bernina the past couple of days, and I know we will have years [and some] of fun together.

 New toys, its serious. 
New fabrics to create with.
I also spend a good amount of time here. 

I will soon be opening an Etsy shop. Stay tuned for that wonderfully delicious day. I probably won't be able to sleep when that happens. {should happen before the new year}
