the year of the babe

Almost time for the mondo beyondo.

This will be dubbed the year of the babe.
I was strolling back through my calendar trying to figure out where the year went and then I realized that 'the year' is napping sweetly in my bed.

close your mouth when you chew

what's that?
oh, you were wondering what else the dogs could have possibly eaten lately?

here, have a seat and I'll tell you:

one rubber boot, size 6.5
4 servings of warm, homemade fettucine with chicken alfredo
1/3 of my morning latte
one delicious pinwheel cookie
and one bag of dirty diapers

I know five big fat doggies who are getting nothing but coal in their stockings.


dear santa

help! I'm drowning in toys...
doesn't he look like he's saying "I can't believe you guys think this is funny" ?


sailing the seven seas

Crayon Pirate

There was a single blue line of crayon drawn across every wall in the house. What does it mean? I said. A pirate needs the sight of the sea, he said & then he pulled his eye patch down & turned and sailed away.

did I mention that one of my silhouette necklaces is in the January issue of Country Living.

I am swamped with christmas orders. I'm out in the studio all night, every night. And right now I'm just trying to perform a little brain drain before bed.
My craft fair was a smashing success and now I have all kinds of ideas on ways to elaborate this handmade militia thing...

Tomorrow I need to get started on my christmas presents. 

Eight days. I'm so screwed.

day of rest

Today's been pretty low key.
In the past 24 hours the dogs have only eaten
4.5 sticks of butter
2 vanilla snack packs (pudding)
1 entire bag of tortilla chips
1 partial bag of cornbread stuffing mix
1/2 bag of salt and vinegar potato chips
4 rotten hot dogs
and the rest of my elk jerky.

I guess it's not a ginsu

So I've been seeing these cute ornaments all over the place:And I have a ton of empty PBR cans leftover from when my brother was here. So I thought, "hey, I can do that".

Nope, no I can't.

I just sliced my knuckle open trying to cut through a tin can.

I've been robbed

Someone stole my cell phone and my iPod nano out of my car today.
I went out to lunch with a friend and my car was parked right in front of the restaurant.
Now before you start asking "oh, well, was your car locked??"

No it wasn't.

I have a karma security system installed on all of my possessions. I've always figured that if someone wants to steal something of mine, fine. Well, today somebody decided to take me up on that.

We ate at a restaurant near campus so I am ignorantly assuming that it was a poor student who took my things. I think that whomever they are they should first bring back my stuff and then second turn around and march right back into kindergarten and pay attention to that whole part about BEING NICE. 

There are many levels on which this incident just plain sucks but right now I am the most bummed about the fact that I had some really really cute photos of Ray on my phone.

To whomever you are, mystery thief, I hope Santa puts a big lump of coal in your stocking.
