This morning Neil suggested that I check out some garage sales for interesting things to sew or dye. Sounded like a good idea to me, so off I went. I only hit 5 sales and didn’t have any luck finding anything of interest until the last place. There on the ground, in a little ziplock […]Read More: Think he likes it?
Son #1’s Ultraman obsession meets my new interest in sewing: Yes, Virginia, there is an Ultraman fabric. And it’s Ultraman Tiga, or so I’m told. One minute I’m humoring him by Googling “ultraman fabric” and the next I’m ordering ugly textiles from Japan LisaRead More: Oh, heaven help us…
Today was the end-of-year picnic for son #2’s school. Here he is with his “favorite friend,” as he calls her. I just love how he’s got his arm around her.

So the Other Half takes the Sons over to his parents’ house this afternoon and comes back with a power washer but without the boys. Now, I love my children dearly, but the prospect of an evening without the duties of parenthood looming kind of makes me giddy Other Half asks me what I’d like […]Read More: A little freedom is dangerous for the wallet.
I can’t believe I’m actually thinking of making myself an apron, or buying one from some talented Etsyan. Suddenly I’m feeling all 50’s housewifeish (without the clean house and dinner on the table, that is). It started around a month ago when I first moved my clay-related rss feeds into the new-to-me Google reader. Since […]Read More: Inspiration Overload?
