(My camera is in Alaska - I lent it to Topher for his green-eyed-monster-summoning 10 day cruise. So, I apologize for the quality of the pics, as they are from my phone. Usually my phone takes pretty swell pictures, but the lighting in my craftroom is quite lacking so...

surprises

So there i was, straightening my sheets the other day and as I flipped the top sheet over to tug the bottom one, I was greeted by this huge monster. Perhaps he wasnt as mammoth as I had originally thought, but mind you *i was just in the bed*. Literally, like 60...

I got my new memory card reader, yay! So as promised, here you go: I took Sasha out in the snow. The coldness didnt bother her, but the depth of the snow did, so she stayed near the house. Maya checked out Tofers new bookcases. The evil damage caused by an even more...

Charlottes gift is ready! Like, for real this time. I solved the last problem with a little bit of yarn and it should work great. It WILL be out on delivery today, heavens help me. But, the giftedness of it means no photos for you yet. Here is the package though - I...

beadwork and leather

One of my teachers was able to make it to my graduation beach party that boy threw for me (hooray for all the monkeys, boo for lack of parking!). She makes Native American inspired crafts so she made me a beautiful pouch from teal suede leather, and created a beaded...

beauties and beasts

I am cat-sitting for a friend who has two sphynxes. For whatever reason, people had assumed I was getting hairless cats when I told them about my girls. I dont know why - Javanese are certainly not hairless so I have no clue as to how that rumor got started (side...

the belated project…

the belated project…

im working on it

The current project I am working on is taking quite a bit more time than I thought because instead of this last part being incredibly easy and fast, it is instead incredibly easy and slow. And i cant show it yet, since its a gift, so youll just have to wait. Instead,...

busy weekend

But no update on projects 🙁 I had broken my sewing machine needle, and although I got it replaced, I was barely home this weekend to finish up the tasks. Boy needed me to finish painting his office (which still isnt done - it needs a third coat) and we had a birthday...
