Am i the only one who didn't know that it was so easy to make powdered sugar. I'm never buying the stuff again. I always have a box unused in my cabinet or i don't have any and i need it and lose the momentum to make what i was making because i don't, which results in having the unused box. I'm never buying it again. How easy and fun too for the little one to do this.
So many of you knew! We had a good, exhausting, hot time. I'm beginning to think it's summer! It's in the 90's again today. I would have some very nice pictures if 1) my husband didn't put the camera where it could fall out of the stroller and 2) i didn't kick something plasticy/metally sounding on the ground and not look to see what it was assuming it couldn't be ours because I secure everything.
Look at the lovliness i got in the mail! and some felting yarn to boot! Her pictures are much better than what mine would be ... Thanks Robyn. We loved everything! I really love that hat. I can't even believe she made it! And that tote is perfect for carrying my yarn projects. Right now it's carrying two. The dress is adorable and can't wait till baby girl wears it. Probably soon. She's one chunky monkey. I got her a bunch of tights and baby legs and it'll look darling with one of the pairs. Good stuff.
Whenever i need a few minutes to escape my reality (dirty diaper, spitup, jelly faced little boy, starving husband etc) i can always rely on my file "must reads" in bloglines. Most of my regular commenters are there in that menu. Some are my true escapes...people doing the things i wish i could be doing right now...mostly crafters. Well today there is a new one... Sigh. Usually i go to Soulemama for a fix, or Beauty that Moves or Qalballah.
First off. I want this so bad that it hurts. Seriously. I love it.
* Baby Girl checking out her feet yesterday for the first time. Coincided with her first time wearing shoes. Hilarious to watch her check out her shoe from every angle and smile. Such a girl.
People know i like handmade/homemade but now I have become the recipient of several tacky regifts...those not cute crochet blankets grannies (the uncool ones, not the cool ones) everyone has one of and keeps because they feel they have to. Yesterday was the same "I knew you would appreciate this..." For the record, I don't appreciate ugly, nor tacky regifts. It's funny that people lump all homemade/handmade into one big pile. There is cute homemade and ugly homemade and i have been the maker of both. I'm embarrassed of my first crochet blankets but they were cuter than this. I like special, one of a kind sorts of things. I love the baby blanket i made first even though the first few rows were off. It was my first and i think it's beautiful. Then there's
i love it when they both sleep. Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly in list form of my past week which was a struggle all around. I don't even know where the time goes.
Homemade peanut butter. And almond butter. And just maybe macadamia nut butter. Oh, i'm loving wholesome (food) living.
