no big dill

I'm a mother to 6 children who also happens to be madly in love with creating.  Mostly sewing clothes, but baking and photography are also rather appealing.  I think the color orange is delightful, but black and white abound in my home, with splashes of colors....in rainbow order, of course.  If given the choice between glass buttons/vintage trim/linen and buying new shoes, I'd go with the sewing supplies.  I guess that makes me obsessed.  I also believe there is creativity in everyone, it just has to be prodded sometimes.
