a little blog about crafting, sewing, nothing, & everything.


Spring Optimism #10

Not having to wear panty-hose for another seven months or so.

You may or may not be able to tell that I'm running low on optimisms for spring's arrival. I'm still pumped, but less about specific things than the overall idea.

In the past few weeks I've been working quite a bit lately on collage and found art from vintage childrens books and encyclopedias. I'm kind of in love with the idea; there's a lot I could do with this.
This one's my favorite. Prairie dogs!


Spring Optimism #9

Starting a garden.


Spring Optimism #8

Breezes that don't make me want to kill myself!


Spring Optimisms delayed

I bet you thought I abandoned this idea, but alas, I just had a busy weekend. The past two days were filled with much crafting (pictures later), a great show with Rachel, parties with home brewed beer and fire pits (yes!), and being an extra in a friend's movie. The last was my favorite, I think. I've never done anything like that before, and it was a really great diversion from my regular activities.

Spring Optimism #5 - Patio seating.

Spring Optimism #6 - GLEE returns to the airwaves April 13.

Spring Optimism #7 - Seeing everyone around you come out of their winter shells.


Spring Optimism #4

Being able to leave the house with wet hair.


Quick short post

I discovered yesterday the amazing and very dangerous site Spoonflower.com

Spring Optimism #3

Thunderstorms with actual thunder.


Spring Optimism #2

Not having to keep track of a coat, gloves, hat, and scarf when you go out.


Spring Optimism

In honor of spring starting anew in a mere 11 days, I'm going to post a short entry each day about something I'm excited about.

Spring Optimism #1 - Feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin for the first time this season. This happened this morning. It was majestic as shit.

Not much on the craft front lately..I just got an iPod touch and it's hogging my attention.
