We made zippered pouches, mini notebooks, the obligatory 9 patch for my 31 squared birthday quilt (we are still 11 short, but that brings us to the issue of child labor....), newborn caps and covered button bobbies. I just loved having all of my fabulous friends, old and new, under one roof. I am truly blessed. The most fun part for me in the planning? Putting together presents for my guests. I chose small and simple things that I love. (Think of Oprah's list, but *way* cheaper.) Old copies of my favorite books, bottles of my favorite shades of spray paint, material...you get the idea. I enjoyed getting them altogether and I hope all of my friends will find unique ways to incorporate them into their homes.

The click clack of the typewriter has become a common sound around our house and I love it! I think most people underestimate the power that the click clack ding can have on you, but it appears that it does influence one to run out to the nearest thrift store and buy a type writer of one's own. (Just ask Faith!)

when: tuesday, august 25th
8 pm to late
where: mi casa
Rules of the Party:
Nobody will be forced to sew, but you will be forced to have fun!
lots of projects will be provided, but if you have something you’d like to work on, bring it!
Feel free to bring your machine, too.
No presents allowed. Anyone bringing presents will get clean up duty. (and that includes all of my toilets.)
I feel like I have be blessed so much over the past year by all of you wonderful friends out there. I know that the road would have been a heck of a lot bumpier if it weren't for you guys. Because you all are just down right fabulous, I am in a celebratory mood of sorts. (not the kind that is going to get me off my duff and cooking a gourmet meal or anything, but I am easily persuaded to craft it up.) All of you non psycho friends out there (most of you know who you are) are cordially invited to come celebrate my best year yet. I have some fun little surprises up my sleeve. My only request? RSVP so I can have plenty of fun for everyone.

Have I told you about Paperbook Swap? At first, I was reluctant. It appeared to be mainly stocked by trashy romance novels. (sorry, Grandma.) I have recently found that if you dig deep enough, you can find your share of treasures. (for free, I might add.) Since I am a bit of a book horder, I share books that are considered trashy to me and that are wanted by someone else. In turn, I choose books like this:
