Road Trip!

The problem is...well, I'm in college. I barely have enough cash to live off… Continue reading Road Trip!

Can I breathe yet?

Things around here continue to spiral out of my hands. I was productive this morning, accomplishing many things that needed done, but none of them were actually on my to-do list. I'm tempted to write them in just so I can cross them off and feel like less of a lazy bum. My Etsy shop… Continue reading Can I breathe yet?

Oh Canada Part Deux

Do you know what this image represents? Well, it's several things: the Canadian Flag, obviously. The flag I dibbed for the Peace Project, secondly (of course, I'll be doing the leftovers, but this was the one I really wanted to do). Mostly, though, it represents seven hours of my life. That little bit of fabric--eight… Continue reading Oh Canada Part Deux
