Hi there! My name is Mandie and I write here. Not I'm right here, but I write here. Get it? Anyway, I have been married to Gabe for six years, I'm on the cusp of turning thirty, and I like to sew and take photos. We live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and enjoy our community and all it has to offer. I share here our weekend adventures, whether we stroll down to the local grower's market, eat at our favorite yummy breakfast joint, take a drive to Santa Fe, or spend the weekend with our nose in our textbook (that would be Gabe, silly) or winding bobbin upon bobbin on my pretty machine (yes, that's me). I like to show you my latest sewing projects, shop products (yep, I run an online shop, too), show off my great thrift finds, and sometimes I even share a recipe, though I usually despise cooking. That about sums us up. Thank you for stopping by and please leave me a comment so we can 'meet.'
