New Fixation

Hello! I am sorry that I have not posted in what seems like an eternity. I have a new fixation- sewing! This holiday season, I was blessed with a new sewing machine! no more borrowing! I am so excited that I have been using wayyy too many of these!!!
I also took the wardrobe refashion pledge for 2 months. ( I want to start small) I have a lot of clothes that I no longer wear, and a huge craft stash. Should take me more than two months to use it up, and keep some cash for myself instead of going to the mall, where I end up overpaying to look the same as everyone else!  I have posted some of my past favorite projects here if you want to have a look. Wish me luck!

Who is Foreverfruitful?

I have had to ask myself this question among others. What is Ff? What will it come to represent? Who is the woman behind the green tree? After quite a bit of thought, here are the answers.

I am the woman behind the green tree. My name is Ashleigh, and I love things that are imperfect and natural, I love to be outside on nice days, and I love the sunshine. I am a work in progress, ever changing, yet keeping core values the same. Foreverfruitful will come to represent me, and function as an outlet for my many creative hobbies/ideas/endeavors.
I want this blog to be interesting and informative. This blog will change as I change, and hopefully it will continue to be a good read for those who want to follow my journey.

The best free resource around

Has been my local library. Libraries are no longer the buildings with shelves and shelves of old books. They are media centers that you can access from the comfort of your own home, in front of the computer. Libraries offer online supplements and access to digital books and other media. I have been taking advantage of this during my time home with new baby. In my down time, I can get online, check my emails, and read a chapter or two in one of my digital books, or I can search databases and have an item shipped to my local library to pick up. When the book is ready, I get a phone call and go pick it up. The best part of all this is that it is absolutely free! I can dig that.

New arrival

I am happy to announce that I did not post a blog in awhile. WHY? because I welcomed my baby girl into this world, and have been spending every moment with her. Cuddling, bonding, feeding, changing her. And the best part is that she is my beautiful empress-in-training.

Awesome chicks of Etsy

I have just joined a group called the Awesome chicks of Etsy. I took a photo of myself, VERY early in the AM, and I look sorta mean, So I thought I should probably include another pic of myself that was actually wearing a smile! I am excited about what the group will offer this year. Check it out!
