I need a vacation!

Luckily, in two weeks, I’ll get one. I’m just worn out. Too much crap going on, and things dragging me down. I’m going to take that week to do all sorts of cool things with the girls. And quilt. LOL! Annabelle is doing great in softball. We’re going to a UCLA softball game this weekend. I’m going to try to get her to the local games here in town for…

When I Grow Up by Annabelle

Annabelle has been listing all the things she’s going to do when she gets older. She has quite a list. First though I want to talk about how well she’s doing in softball. She’s matured a lot and is listening well, throwing great, catching the ball, and batting like a pro. I’m putting her in lessons because she wants to be a catcher, so we’ll be working on that until…

What Happened?

I tell you what happened! School. When you work full-time, single parent two children, and attend school full-time, certain things get neglected. In that case it was this website. Of course I wasn’t exactly keeping up with it in general. But maybe I should. Since I’m officially going to be an ASU graduate in May, and only have one more course to do, I can take up quilting again. I…

Just Checking In

It’s been a very long time since I last posted. Why? Mainly because I work all day on the computer and the last thing I want to do is sit down and write. Plus I don’t think anyone actually read this. But I pay for this site so I should use it. I started back at ASU. I’m going to be getting a degree in Technical Communication in Spring 2017….

What I’ve Been Up To

So it’s once again been a while since I posted. I figured I’d get on and list out the projects I have done in the past few months and also list out the projects I have upcoming. So first and foremost I finished this wall hanging for Christmas: Then I made this pillow cover for Thanksgiving: Which then prompted me to make a pumpkin table mat for under the lamp:…

Christmas Season is Coming…

So what does that mean? It’s time to make some Christmas quilts and place mats for the table! I need a Christmas table runner as well. I did finish the birthday quilt as well. I like how it came out. Can’t wait to give it to the intended recipient but we have to wait. I started on a Christmas wall hanging which I don’t have photos of and will probably…

A Shopkins Quilt

So I’m working on a quilt for Kaylee’s friend’s birthday. She likes Shopkins so I decided to take on some appliqué work and do a Shopkins on the front. I have to say I’m quite happy with how it turned out. Then I did a satin stitch to outline it and I think it looks a lot better so I’m happy. Now all I have to do is sandwich the…

Another Month, Another Project Finished

I’ve neglected to post about my most recent projects! So back in August I posted about a project I was working on. I finished it! I decided to practice a bit of free motion quilting on that project and let me tell you, I sucked at it, but since it’s my personal quilt it’s okay.

Working on my next project…

My mom asked if I was going for the world record for quilts made in a year and I realized I’ve made a lot of quilts this year so far. It’s okay though, I enjoy doing it. I’m currently working on a project made with the fabric I was given for my birthday. I hope to have the top done by this weekend. Then I’ll have to purchase the backing…

I’m on a roll…

My sister said for our birthday she wanted a quilt. She told me this about a week and a half before our birthday. So I ordered a kit and busted out a quilt in under 40 hours. She liked it so that’s good. Then I completed the top to another quilt I’m making for a friend of my daughter for her birthday. That project has to be completed before Nov….

About Me

Hello! My name is Pamala!

I am a divorced, single mother of two beautiful girls, Kaylee and Annabelle.

I blog to write out my thoughts and opinions on my own life and issues that interest me. I do not write to please anyone and don't censor for the sake of others.

What you read here is me, no lies, no exaggerations. If you don't like it, simply don't read it.


Kaylee is my oldest daughter and she's 10 years old.

Kaylee enjoys drawing, playing, reading, watching movies, and playing with her sister, Annabelle.

Kaylee currently is in 5th grade. She also enjoys reading, writing, computers, Minecraft and plays the Sax and Volleyball.

Kaylee has a disorder called Hyperinsulinism. She takes medication to maintain her blood sugar but other than that she's perfect in every way.


Annabelle is the youngest and most wild of the family! She is 6 years old!

Annabelle loves her sister Kaylee more than anyone in the world. She enjoys running after her sister, playing with toys, and yelling at family!

Annabelle is in 1st grade and kicking butt in school. She plays Softball and Soccer in her free time. She says when she grows up she wants to coach Softball, be a police artist, a chef, and a teacher. She has goals.

Annabelle has Hyperinsulinism but requires no meds to remain within a healthy range (just like Mommy). She just requires us to pay attention to when she's sick or growing to make sure she's fine.
