I can't possibly cover everything. I still haven't photographed everything. It's a marathon catchup session around here, and I'm going to play it like show and tell...These are the aprons I made for the fish fry, and everyone WORE them! Whcih was honestly, kind of hilarious because a grown man in a lemon-fish apron furiously frying fish is quite a sight to behold. The fish was excellent, too.Have you been to Kansas City? Statistically, probably not. But if you come, you should go to Oklahoma Joe's a great barbeque place located in a gas station. Seriously good stuff. I didn't like barbeque until I had their pulled pork sandwich.I got these flowers for Mother's Day. Yeah, no, I don't have kids. Just an awesome guy at church who gave flowers to everyone. Awwwwwww.Moving out is LAME, but seeing the place clean is kindof cool. I already miss it though.I miss the desk, that is not mine, and the cubbies, which are not mine.Fortunately I got to keep this, THE CUTEST CAT EVER. He is on temporary loan to my mother, however, because he probably would not be crazy about our current temporary living situation.I'm not minding the little studio, though. Rental movies every night, and no kitchen, so no cooking...Darn. Thats all for now.

I'm coming back...

Seriously. Soon. Like, tomorrow I hope. New Mac + Moving = no bloggy. But I've been busy and have many things to show for it so...
Tomorrow. Really. I'm gonna try.

News! Kindof! Maybe! Exclamations!

Ah! I'm really excited because I found out yesterday that a tutorial I posted on Craftster quite a while back has been linked to from the Blog! Woot! If you want to check it out, the mention is here.I should also thank Craftster user Dorion who put the link on the craftster thread to let me know. It's kind of cool to know that other people MIGHT make something that I kinda showed them how to make- now I feel bad about the other tutorial I promised to make for a bag. I'm sure I'll finish it. Someday.
In other semi-exciting news, well, only exiting if you're me, really, I scored some pretty sweet thrift store finds this Sunday. Some great polyester flowers, and nice cotton heavyweight stuff too. The only downside to buying so much fabric is all the ironing that accompanies it. I've already done plenty lately.

Tomorrow night at work is the big Fish Fry, you may remember my beerfish invites? Well, in honor of the festivities, I am going to make fish-frying aprons for all of us fish-frying folk (ie, the people who work there, ie, David and Paula and I) out of these adorable dish-clothes I got at a local gardening store. Pictures forthcoming, I (almost) promise.
On a somewhat sad but also very happy note, this is the last blog entry I will write on the PC. We got out iMac in the mail today. Here it is, in all it's boxed glory.
I spruced it up a bit for B when he comes home. You've been a serviceable, if slow, friend, PC, and we will miss you, but not that much. Yay for Macs!

Tote Bag Fever

So seriously, is tote bag fever not the corniest blog title ever? Because I'm pretty sure it is. I am seriously, seriously lame right now, most likely because I have been spending far too much time around making tote bags and singing the WKRP theme song to myself and not interacting with, you know, people. Well, I've interacted with Brian, but we mostly just sing the WKRP theme song together.Since my last post I have produced three more of these giant tote bag, one of wich was sold to my lovely neighbor the day after it was finished and therefor never photographed, and these two, which I made for the etsy store.They're quite a bit of fun to make, and really very soft, the tan fabric is kindof a heavy brushed-feeling cotton, and all the good quilting stuff at the top is very soft... I'm thinking that I will have to make one for myself, even thought I have about four million bags already, and I'm really in love with the faux bois combo one, soo....
Big news around here is the impending move, and therefor the getting rid of some stuff. Stuff like.... this computer! Friday night Brian ordered the new iMac, and we are both terrible excited. I use an iMac at work and love it, its so fast and shiny, not to mention pretty. I've already started to decorate his office in my head, it's going to have a cowboy/paint by numbers theme...if it is allowed. Cross your fingers, I'm shaking with anticipation.

Random Stuff, All the Time.

I think I would be much better at this blog thing if it wasn't for the words part of it. I generally am pretty good about the pictures, but the words....yikes.Things I've been meaning to write about:
-Meeting Emiko of the GREAT blog Kitchen M at work this past week. Check out her stuff its insanely fabulous, and I'm not just saying that because I want her to come back and hang out at the studio....
-deciding to stay in the same neighborhood when we move out of our sublet in a few weeks, making our move a total of like... 200 feet. If that. But I am bad at distance estimation.

-This headband I made for our friend and neighbor Jami's birthday...which was, yeah, last month, but her party was this weekend, and amazing. Awesome food? Check. Mariachi band? Check. Giant yellow goat pinata? Check.
-This bag I made my mom for Mother's Day. I'm making more for the etsy shop, too, they're so fun to make, and really nice and sturdy.
-These brownies I made, they were strictly mediocre, but kind of pretty on the windowsill.
