  • 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!

urban home goods swap package

I wish you could have seen me walking to the mailbox.  I thought I knew what was coming my way, but when I saw a big box resting against my mailbox I knew I was wrong.  I was running through all the amazing things I’d seen in the flickr group and settled on thinking “MAYBE IT’S THAT AMAZING RUFFLE PILLOW and sewing machine cover that looks like it is made to fit a serger?!!  No.  Probably not.  She’s too awesome to be paired with you.  Don’t get your hopes up.”

I ran back to the house like a little kid and tore open the box and it was like Christmas morning.

I am so excited to make some spring pillow covers to coordinate with this awesomeness!  (Will says it is ‘super cute.’)

How sweet is the little camera?!  It was so fun to look through all the great fabrics featured!  (And it made me laugh because one of my latest WIPs is a tumbler quilt in purple, navy, aqua and green!)

Kirsten - How awesome is your package? When I saw the camera . . . I thought of you and went back to my notes to check to see if it was for you. She hit a home run! Love everything about your package, lucky girl!

Meagan - OMG I hate you!!! I can’t remember if it was that exact pillow I saw on flickr or one like it, but I have been drooling over it!!! I love it SO MUCH!!

Colleen Sheehy - Too cute. Are those ruffles felt or fabric?
