  • 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!

The Berlin Wall Between Me and SUMMER

This week every time I say “summer” I sound a lot like Olaf. My stats final (and a whole lot of pre-company-arrival cleaning) is the only thing left between me and my first summer without either weddings or online classes in what feels like a million years. I AM SO EXCITED. I can’t really buckle down on the dumbness that is studying for this high stakes final when I could instead dink around on the internet and drink coffee.


So while I sit down and try to figure out what in the heckfire the central limit theorem actually is, I will be thinking of the studio and all that awaits me when SUMMER STARTS TOMORROW!!!!!



I have fabric ready for an Olive&S Tea Party Dress for Ellie (made from that adorable Milk, Sugar, Flower print)  and a couple of knits for me.  I WILL CONQUER KNITS THIS SUMMER!
