Hi to anyone and everyone reading! Is anyone reading? Probably not.
Well, if there is anyone out there in the land of the web, welcome to my little corner. I have had years to consider my first post and this is just as lame as I expected.
I finally bit the bullet and jumped on the blog train after spending the last year trying to decide what to do with my life. I am a work at home mom with my own little photography business and handmade clothing business. My family consists of my husband Jeremy, our 3-year-old daughter Riley who is the “bird” of Bird & Bear Creations, and our 15-year-old nephew Logan. I’m sure I will reference these people on the regular so learn their names if you don’t know them. Or bookmark this page. It’s a good idea.
As I said before, I have my hands in a few businesses but have decided to slow way down on the photography as it just doesn’t hold my passion any longer. I enjoy it but not like I did. I do, however, have the very strong love/obsessive feelings towards sewing and creating clothing. Knit fabrics are my kryptonite. I put my families move from our home of almost 4 years to our new home on hold for an entire day so I could finish a test pattern. It worked out well. I have an amazing hoodie and we had excellent pizza that night because I could not cook for fear of grease transfer. Check out just some of my work that I have been doing for the last 8 months or so here: http://www.facebook.com/birdandbearcreations
I do love cooking and my personal favorites are Pinterest recipes. We have had many a fail here in the Paras site. Many, many fails. I will be trying to cook my way through my Pinterest food boards but there are, like, 4 of them so this may take a while. Hungarian food is also my downfall and I will use all my money to buy the ingredients for 1 recipe if I can make it taste like Nagymama’s.
There is so much that I want to use this blog for so you will just have to follow to find just how much I actually make happen. What works and what ends up in the fire pit. Crafts, food, sewing projects…
Eventually a move to Montana. But that’s another blog post. 😉
