I is for Impulsive

In the Encyclopedia of Me, I is for Impulsive. Impulse buys, impulsive crafting sessions, impulsive hours of getting sucked into reading blogs instead of cleaning the house as I’d originally planned… you get the picture. I’m way more impulsive than I am disciplined. And I’m now going to impulsively switch to a new topic rather […]

D is for Dr. Pepper

In the Encyclopedia of Me, D is for Dr. Pepper – the only Doctor I’d willingly visit every day…  And that’s really all I need to say about that, isn’t it?  Mmmmmm. I have been a walking ball of stress all day.  I slept poorly last night, which I’m sure didn’t help, and when I […]

It’s in Alexander Henry’s Birdseed fabric, using the trusty A-line elastic-waist skirt pattern I made from Sew What!

I’m not sure if they ever read […]

I also need to throw in a load of laundry, clean the kitchen, straighten up the living room, put away piles of new inventory (shall I continue??). Somehow, on the way home from dropping off […]

Summer weekend

Yep, it’s definitely summer. We spent yesterday afternoon swimming at my parents’ house with my sister & my nephews, and today we picked berries in our yard. We didn’t have a gigantic harvest – maybe 2 cups – but it’s a nice haul, when you consider we only lucked into these plants and didn’t have […]
