Need to start taking pottery classes ASAP!


I love this bush... i don't really understand how it works.  But when I own a house it will have a fabulous bush like this.

The cats are besties tonight.... they like to lick each other, gaze into each others eyes and watch the guys cook, as if it's for them.   Grey is lady and Blacky's the tramp.


The boys went grocery shopping and now are cooking dinner... mmmmmmmm!  To all my vegan and vegetarian friends i'm sure it looks..... not so good.  BUT IT IS!!

Gonna make it

So I totally want to make this chain necklace/scarf thing... it looks fairly easy!  Don't steal my stolen idea....ittt'sss mine!  I am in the middle of trying to do a grey scarf with yellow triangles... it looks okay, not great.  I think I may just call it quits and start this guy up.

Made another stamp today.. a beetle stamp.  I have to say, it turned out pretty darn good!  I broke his left antennae off ... so I have to fix that, somehow.  


Made my third pillow today using my felt flowers... it's okay.  I wish the flowers were a little bigger... like instead of nine small ones, I think four big ones would look awesome.  Next time.

Spent this lazy lazy sunday making this stamp.  It was fun - it reminds me of mountains.  I think I will test out new paper and paint color combinations tomorrow.

Looking forward to this being me in like two monthes.  I plan on taking every opportunity to go on as many trips this summer as possible.  Even small weekend trips to go camping an hour away is enough to really lift my spirits.  Ohh summer... so close!


These are the air plants I want.  I love these glass bubble balls too!  I want them hanging in my kitchen window.

I found this abandoned papier mache horse outside my apartment yesterday... hopefully march and april are filled with lots of spring cleaning trash treasures!


I finally finished my yellow scarf!  Just in time for the warm weather.. oh well.  I think I will just make a bunch all summer long and sell them on etsy this fall.

Came across these textiles and cloths online today.  They are soo great, wish I was a millionaire.  I could spend hours on this website searching through all of the fabrics, trinkets, and artifacts - so great!  My roommate Megan went to the African Market on Elmwood and bought some fabric that is really beautiful.  I guess they get a lot more fabric in the spring, I can't wait to go.

Yay!  So I didn't make a plant wall... yet.  But I did purchase a majestic palm at Home Depot on clearance for 9.95! Isn't it beautiful?  It really changes the vibe of the living room.  My roommate Paul is starting a window garden, today he planted some peppers.  I think I will keep track of, and post the progress.  I can't wait for sprouts!

So my project today is pillows.  We have absolutely no pillows in our apartment.  I stole some from my mom and today I am just making covers for them.  My first one was a success.  I need to working on my sewing but overall I'm satisfied.  I got this great tree fabric on ebay for really cheap.

I really want to make a plant wall like this one.  I kill everything I get though.  I have been doing some research on air plants... and they seem more my speed.

Listen to Me

Please Please Please download Laura Veirs new album July Flame.  It is just the greatest thing that's happened to me in a long time.  The link here is to my favorite song from the album.... even though every single song on the album is great.  Make some tea, get near a cat or two, put your feet up, and push play... life is good.

How great is this light bluish green bookshelf? Peter just made an amazing bookshelf, but we might have to make another one very soon.  I also wish I had windows like this... hmph..

I love this lamp from - I want to figure out how to make something like it.  The image comes from an abstract photograph that to me looks like sand, rocks, pebbles, and the ocean - beautiful!  It looks like it could be mimcked using dyes?  I really need a pendant lamp for my kitchen.
