January 1, 2016


This is my word of the year. I will challenge myself to live with less.  To reduce my stashes. To use what I have. To spend wisely. I will challenge myself to challenge myself. Live outside my comfort zone. I will try something new. I will try something hard.  I challenge myself to finish things I’ve started. To start new things and finish them. I challenge myself to live in the moment. I challenge myself to see what I can accomplish in this blessing of a year.

Happy 2016!

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

You can email me at mlynapier [at] pobox [dot] com. Thank you for stopping by!

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
