Lynette is Joining Running With Scissors!

11:03 AM

This blog has been dying slowly.  But get ready for an amazing resurrection!

My little sister, Lynette is coming on board and we are going to join forces!
So you'll get to see what each of us is creating!
Grandma's House late 80s

Maybe you don't know Lynette or remember her blog, Thinking In Shapes, which she deleted a little over a year ago.
Basically comparing the two of us, Lynette is Mr. Miaggi, and I am Daniel-son.
Get ready to be amazed by the master if you've been at all impressed with the apprentice.


HOW THIS CAME ABOUT:
We live 2 hours from each other, so we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like, as that would probably be every day if possible.  But Lynette was over for a sleep over and after we watched Little Women and our kids were in bed we were chatting about motherhood stifling our creative capacity, and how we each love different aspects of blogging, but it's a lot of work.  Lynette has recently started delving more into DIY and home projects (building her own bed) and wanted to share all her ideas.  I was feeling burned out from blogging and after 7 years have been considering over and over just ending it and being done...but I always just keep coming back.  So that night we both decided we'd both love working together and sharing our ideas with you.
the girls of our family: Lynette (9th grade), oldest sister Heather, Jessica (12th grade)
I think we both have things to share, and we're both excited to work together.  She's the authority on sewing and she's who I call for my sewing or garment questions.  She calls me with furniture and DIY questions.  And let's be honest, we both call our mom with both.  So get excited because we're going to have Sheila mom features coming too.  I'm so thrilled about all the changes and feel like fresh energy has given my blog life, we're even getting the fuzzy header revamped and making things look like it's not 2009 anymore around here.

So I thought it would be fun to introduce Lynette. I'm sure in no time you'll realize she's the better sister creatively and as a person....anyone who knows us in real life can attest to that.

Here's a few of my favorite projects she's created just to brag about her a little:


And she's got a whole stack of posts in draft form waiting to bust out for you so get ready!

There's more new and exciting changes in the works, but this post already has too many adjectives so we'll save them for another day.  I haven't been this excited about this blog in years!!  So look out, here come the Kelly sisters with sewing machines, drills, paint, fabric, and scissors I guess.
Running With Scissors just got a whole lot better.

  2. Jessica you and your blog ARE fab. You have given me the confidence to make my profoundly Autistic son (age 10) comfortable trousers and for that I am eternally grateful.

  3. Oh that is exciting! I think it would be awesome to have somebody else around to help with my blog sometimes. What a great idea to bring your sister and mom sometimes on to help. I'm excited to see what you both come up with!

  9. oh I must echo all the others in saying how glad I am that you are not throwing away your blog. I hope I am not opening up something sad or uncomfortable but this is the first time I heard about the third sister. my only comment is that you must not diminish all the wonderful abilities of your own. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. How are the patients liking your interestingly decorated waiting room ?

    1. Oh, not sad, we're all close in my family, Heather just isn't interested in sewing so she doesn't get blogged I guess. She doesn't read or follow blogs so I think it's just part of our real life that doesn't translate into the blog. The guy in Lynette's suit is our little brother, so you'll probably see more of all our family now Lynette and I are together blogging!
