Oh, March.

Oh, March, I am coming to dread you ever year.  When you’re not visiting unfortunate loss upon us (2007), theatrically raining destruction over our front yard (2008), or infecting us with the flu (2009), you are bringing a weekend storm replete with whipping winds, driving rains, power outages, and flooded basements. I’m not superstitious by […]

Sherri Haab Jewelry Inspirations + giveaway

I have Sherri Haab to blame for all of this.  And by “this” I mean the polymer clay supplies that lurk in many corners of my house, the business I’ve built around clay books + videos, and the piles and piles of polymer jewelry mostly gathering dust in my bedroom.  (You know how that goes […]

Them’s shoppin’ words

Last night, while noticing that my computer screen has started to take on a pinkish tinge, and that I was irritated by it but resigned to living with it, Neil uttered these dangerous words: “New laptops are not as expensive as you think.” What??  Is this true?  And why have you not mentioned this before??

How dashing

I’ve been drooling over this pattern since before I knew my way around a pair of knitting needles, and I finally started a set back in January.  This is Dashing, from Knitty.  I love them because they are masculine enough that I can make them for those hard to shop for men in my life, […]
