  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

christmas towels

These stay put towels are a huge hit.  That post has been on pinterest more than any of my other posts!!  (Which cracks me up because the tutorial isn’t even mine!)

I made a couple for Christmas gifts and I just love how they came out!  (All of the towels are from Target.)  For the first towel I’d really wanted plain kelly green, but Joanns was running VERY low on their green ribbon (much to my annoyance) this week and these polka dots were the best I could do.  I’m totally in love with the pom pom trim, though!


Krista - Those are indeed super cute. I’ll have to go check the tutorial out!

Tara B - Wow you are talented! what insiring, fun, and cute ideas!

Lisa polk - Love it all

Susie at ProsperityStuff - Awesome. I’ll be making some of these … thanks for the tutorial link!
