So why Smoosy?

Hello!  Welcome to my Blog!  I'm sure you're wondering...or maybe not, but too bad...where Smoosy came from.  It's a bit of a silly story involving a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card that the flower shop owner, so very carefully and with much love and attention to detail, scribed "smooshy, smooshy"love Rob, as "smooshy, smoosy" love, Ron.  (eh...close enough) And so unbeknownst to the flower shop lady, smooshy smoosy was born and has become a bit of a term of endearment in our house.  So....after much deliberating and agonizing over the perfect blog name ( was so hard!),  Smoosy it is.  

So my friends and family keep harassing urging me to start a blog and open an Etsy shop.  So...i finally caved to one of their two demands.  I've decided to start with the blog and work my way up to the Etsy shop.  I've decided to wait on the Etsy shop until I get my new craft room up and running.  I'm disturbingly excited about it and can't wait to start work on it next week during spring break!  I'll post before and after pictures hopefully by the end of next week.  I've spent hours (literally....) planning and designing and measuring and decorating the room in my head, and a little on paper.  I've googled craft rooms and come up with what I think is going to be super fantastic and totally inspiring.  I can't wait to start!  Also, I'm sure honeys can't wait for me to get on with it either since my "planning" totally interferes with our tv watching time...

yes.  we're that cutting edge.  Jealous?  

So stay tuned to my blog for random blogginess, craft projects that if I can do, anyone can do, recipes worthy of repeat performances, and the occasional picture of this dog. because seriously.  look at that face.
