Craftster Junkie

I've been such a whore lately. Once my computer finds signal from my neighbor's wireless, all I can think about is looking at the awesome new sewn creations. All I've been getting is inspiration after inspiration, I hope that once the time comes for me to actually do it, I can perform. If not, at least I know I'm just a beginner, and that I tried. =]

Anyway, if you're interested in making your own clothing, or any sewing project, is a pretty cool place for patterns. I haven't tried any of them yet (I'm too scared/lazy) but they look good! If you're a better domestic diva than I am and actually start and/or complete a project, send me pictures!

Mailing List

Before I go to sleep, I was thinking that I wanted to start a mailing list or something so I can contact you or just email you new posts or maybe an alert for when I post something new...or I don't know. Just to keep in touch. I hate myspace so I prefer not to use it simply because well, I don't really know how to do things the easy way on there...I like email so I can do email.

Anyway, if you would like to join my mailing list, (don't worry, I won't sell your info and all that, even if I wanted to, I don't know how!) just email me your first name and email address to and I'll try to send you cool stuff.... I'll think of something I can do, but I won't send you annoying "promotional offers" so if you're worried about that, then don't.

If you know how I can send mass messages to my friends on myspace, then please email me about that too! Although I hate myspace, I'm willing to learn for my readers out there.

Little Vacation

Phew! It has been a long time, but I now feel it's time to tie an apron on and begin cooking and whipping up some amazing crafts again.

I'm sorry for those of you loyal readers for not updating in a while, but in my defense, I did tell you I was going on vacation, and although I've been retiring in my humble home every night for the past few weeks, I've been on a mental vacation. It's been pretty good for me. I've cleared up a lot of things in my head and I've got a lot of inspiration for new projects. I'm happy to announce that I will be learned the amazing craft of sewing and pattern making. Just as soon as my Dad clears up his schedule.

During my "vacation" I decided that I would only buy clothing I knew I couldn't make on my own or felt that it was just too much of a steal to pass up! This way, my wardrobe will not only fit me perfectly, but I'll be the only one with that piece AND I'll be so proud honestly saying that I made it. I do hope that you join me on this little journey. I'll be sure to post instructions and hopefully patterns (if I can figure out how to do that part...any ideas? email me!)

What else, what else? Oh I just recently got hooked on the Showtime series Weeds. Unfortunately I don't get Showtime (we have pretty basic cable...) but I did see season 1 at Target for $15.99. What a deal! So I decided to take a chance on it, and wow...I am happy! can't wait until Season 2 comes out on DVD!

Anyway, I'll hopefully be bringing you some crafty goodness within the next few weeks. I think I'll still partially on vacation so you'll have to forgive me if I don't have anything for a little while. Well, I have work tomorrow, and it's getting late, so I think I'm going to sign off now. Good night! Or morning, or afternoon!

Potluck Pictures!

As promised (but slightly delayed) here are some pictures from the little potluck we had last week. I'll post recipes and instructions in a little bit. (No guarantees of when yet! But I will if you're interested.)

I haven't had lemon meringue pie in a VERY long time, so I decided to try to make it on my own. Looks pretty good eh?

Here's a blueberry pie before it's baked. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it baked. But it looks the same! Just golden. =]

The first time I've seen a pineapple get peeled from the start. Looks so pretty and it's pretty simple once you know the technique (which I learned from my dad).

Working on our edible centerpiece... Very simple, but a definite conversation starter!

And the Finished product:

My my how the time passes

I can't believe its been so long since I've written! I've been doing so much lately, I'm not really sure what I've been doing. All I know is that I've been working...I'm tired, and well, I've got more work to do! Oh well. Work is good right? It just means that there's money to be made. And I need all the money I can get since I have lots of projects planned. Just no tiime!

Anyway, I hope that I can write more than this, but don't expect too much from me in the next few weeks. I'll be getting a temporary new schedule so I'll be working like 5-6 days a week for the next two weeks (which is a lot for me because I usually only work 3 days) and then after that, I'm going camping!! yay! =]

Incase You Want to Try It...

I was looking at a few posts at and came across crocheted tampons (interesting, I've seen them as a joke before, but these had a useful destiny) which then lead to a tutorial for a reusable pad--or feminine napkin. Pretty interesting, and if you're interested, here's the link!

Some Inspired Work

I'm so happy to say that this blog has inspired somebody to actually go out and try a project. Ok fine, it's my sister, but really, it's hard to inspire her enough to do any kind of project with her busy schedule and all. Here's an awesome stencil she made. =]
