I run Knot By Gran'ma. I will fill this in better once I get a moment. I promise. In the meantime, I have 2 kiddos, a pug, 2 cats, a rabbit, and a chicken.

Recycled Product Packaging

I'm working on a new design for my smaller items' packaging. I was using poly-bags. I have run out. I will not be buying more. I was cutting up my old plastic bags from purchases that I have made. I will not be doing this either, as the tape needed made recycling hard to impossible. I have decided to use paper. Paper is recyclable and biodegradable....more

Procrastinating on Monsters

I am sure everyone does this. You have an amazing project that you love. You suddenly find yourself busy with other amazing, but not as amazing as the other project, projects. Your amazing project (that you love) gets pushed to the back burner, and suddenly is the hardest thing in the world to finish. You become sad that your amazing project is not done.

Ouchi Gallery Reception

I GOT TO RIDE IN A FREIGHT ELEVATOR! Yes. This country mouse got to check TWO things off of her bucket list. I'm a little sad that I didn't think to take a picture of this event, but it's etched in my brain forever.The whole show was super fun. I was a little hesitant about going when I found out my sidekick wasn't able to accompany me to the show. Granted, me waiting until the last minute to remind her (because I can't seem to remember what day I'm on) didn't help. Note to self: figure out a way to get babysitting funds for KBG outings. Luckily my mother-in-law was game and off to Brooklyn we went! I almost didn't get lost too.Love knows No Boundaries...more
