It’s Friday; I’m in love!

I have been working diligently on a new project, but I hit a bit of snag, and I’m having to rethink the finished product. Therefore, I am not posting yet. I am also baking brownies. Or was. The timer just went off. Mmmm! Brownies! So in lieu of showcasing my own crafts today, I wantedContinue reading “It’s Friday; I’m in love!”

Throwback Thursday: Paczki Day 2012

Disclaimer: I am not Polish. But my husband is, so there’s that. For those of you unfamiliar with Paczki, they are a delicious tradition of Polish Mardi Gras. Since the season of Lent requires a lot of bland eating, Paczki were a way to use up all of the ingredients that would shortly become (more)Continue reading “Throwback Thursday: Paczki Day 2012”

Wedding Wednesday: The Sam & Eric Exhibit

Happy Hump Day! So, if you’ve read more than one post on this lil blog, you will see that I enjoy puns and alliteration more than should be allowed. Perhaps it’s a throwback from my days of writing MLA papers (MLA requires the use of a creative title), or perhaps it’s just another quirk ofContinue reading “Wedding Wednesday: The Sam & Eric Exhibit”

I mentioned in “A Day in Pictures“, or rather showed, that I bought a new miniature at Riders on Saturday.

Stick a pin in me; I’m done

When I woke up yesterday, I had already decided to take onat least three projects, one of them being a sewing project I have been putting off – a pin cushion. It seemed easy enough, and I thought it would make a good pause between other projects. Hand sewing, for me, can be almost aContinue reading “Stick a pin in me; I’m done”

In lieu of flowers

I titled this post a half hour ago, and then I went about addressing some Thank You cards. Now, coming back to it, “in lieu of flowers”, I recognize why it seemed so easy for me to type. I used to write obituaries for a local newspaper, and when a family wanted money donated toContinue reading “In lieu of flowers”
