my new addiction

March 26th, 2008 1 Comment

I can’t stop making pom poms. Back in December I wanted to make some to use as a garland to decorate the bare fireplace in my bare living room in my bare home and I found this tutorial. Since then I find myself with yarn in my hand whenever I’m watching TV or eating breakfast. […]


making: week eleven

March 25th, 2008 No Comments

This is my studio! Garth and I actually refer to it as the making room, but I don’t know that he’s going to be doing much making in it. It still needs a little tweaking- but for the most part it is as I like it. I tried it out this last week and made […]


Easter surprise!

March 21st, 2008 No Comments

Garth and I arrived home the other day from babysitting to find a little package on our doorstep from my parents. My parents send the best packages so we were pretty excited. No amount of familiarity with the gift givers however could prepare us for what was inside. My Mom made us aprons with elle […]

I’ve been kissing this man for a year now. Last year on St. Patrick’s day we had a whirlwind date that started with breakfast and the San Diego St. Patrick’s Day parade and ended with a first kiss at my kitchen door after a cruise on the harbor. He’s pretty great. I am going to […]

This beauty is finally done. I think that I’ve been working on it (with Garth’s help) for over a month now. In case you haven’t been following, this is the end product of two old filing cabinets, a sander and reciprocating saw, primer, chalkboard paint, casters and nuts and bolts. Oh, and hinges. I entered […]

making: week eight

March 4th, 2008 No Comments

This installment of making has been seriously delayed because I was too busy… well, I was too busy making. The quick and easy refinshing of these cabinets has been one of those projects that affects life as we know it. It started in the garage, but soon spilled into the driveway, the living room, the […]


the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t

(21 February 2007 from 2007 self portraits) I feel myself pulled in so many directions. I want to live in New York City. I want to make my own clothing. I want to have a green thumb. I want to design costumes for films. I want to travel the world photographing weddings. I want to […]
