• Van Halen for kids

    January 16, 2012

    I just found out that Van Halen is coming to Raleigh this summer. Now that should be a wild show, although I am not sure they will be as crazy as they once were now that they are pushing 60. But then again, look at Mick Jagger! This past fall, I came across a super cute…

  • Happy April Fool’s Day, Not!

    April 1, 2011

    Things have been pretty quiet around here lately. That is probably going to be the case until I get my shop opened.  While I didn’t come close to completing my February to-do list, I did accomplish a few major things:  My website is totally complete! I went ahead and ordered a banner, which I wasn’t planning…

  • British Invasion

    July 14, 2010

    Photo from Flickr Photo from Flickr I absolutely love England! I guess that isn’t too big of a stretch coming from an British Lit major. I can’t decide what I love most about it: the people, history, authors, food, scenery, or music! I think it is a little bit of everything. Photo from Flickr I’ve…

  • A whole new world

    May 25, 2010

    I am now so completely hooked on using a sewing machine. Or, I guess I should say sew completely hooked. 🙂 Thanks to my friend Debbie, I have now learned the basics of machine sewing. And wow, is it so much faster than hand sewing. This past weekend, I completed my very first machine sewing…

    May 4, 2010

    Is it me, or does everyone have nicknames for their pets? I very rarely call Drusilla by her real name, instead I call her by one of her many nicknames: baby girl, chickin’ lickin’, pickle lips! I can’t for the life of me remember when I started using these nicknames, but she responds to each…
