Basil and Bourbon? Yes, Please.

August 12, 2012
Basil and Bourbon?  Yes, Please.

Today I was pinning and window shopping researching and networking. I stumbled across some things you might want to check out. Things tight make gifts for an unappreciative boss or disagreeable relative. This one is for the man who always wanted a Polly Pocket but never could get past the gender issues. For the...

Navel Gazing

February 24, 2011

I used to be a sweetsaholic. I craved rich, chocolaty, don’t-insult me-with-your-flan kind of sweets. Then I had to cut that out. The sweets started keeping me up at night. And just making me feel gross.  So I just replaced the sugar with salt. ———- When I was pregnant I found many foods to...

Interpretive Dance with Paper Mache

December 1, 2010

I recently received a writing challenge from clean-as-a-whistle Elly at Buggin Word.  And you know I couldn’t pass up a challenge like that (well, maybe you didn’t know, but now you do).  In response to my whining about feeling like an empty-brained, slumpy, wannabe writer Elly said, “I’ll give you somethin’ to write about,...

October 24, 2010
Phase 3- Check.

Phase 1- devise a plan.  Phase 2- execute the plan.  Phase 3- create something recognizable. This is seriously happening.  This Making Of a Manta Ray Costume.  I have the main body all pieced together, and after chasing Hayden down several times for a “fitting” I think I finally have the proportions right.  Or, at...

And They Will Know Us By the Length Of Our Toes

October 6, 2010

After another failed attempt to feed my child refried beans and cheese, I think, “How can we possibly share the same genes?”  when we have so many differences.

Today, I’ve Got Lots of Questions. And No Answers.

September 24, 2010

Why is half of my hair straight and the other half curly with ringlets? Why is my bust five inches smaller than my hips? Why do my husband AND my child talk in their sleep? Why does my home still smell like last night’s fish even though I cleaned and lit a candle and...
