A Penny For My Thoughts

A penny for my thoughts

Recent news events have been weighing on me. Not on a moment to moment basis but passing through my mind every now and then. The sentencing in the Stanford rape case. Orlando. Disney.  They are completely unrelated but highlight the fragility of life.  You just never know what’s going to happen when you step out the door.  So I have a request. Realize each day is a blessing. It is also an opportunity to put love and kindness and compassion into the universe.  Hug your loved ones and take every opportunity you can to snuggle. And maybe do something to bring a smile to someone’s face.  Thank you.

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.
