Tentacle Scarf Adventure Time Is Complete

Tentacle Scarf Adventure Time Is Complete

This project went exactly as I suspected it would. There were definitely tedious parts from doing the same thing over and over again for long stretches of time. There was a lot of little things that needed to be done, like the 72 suction cups that had to be hand sewn onto the tentacles. There was some cursing and frustration, BUT this turned into an amazing project. I’m thrilled with the outcome.

Crochet Work and Spinning Progress

Crochet Work and Spinning Progress

Life is in some sort of upheaval, apparently constantly over here. I’m finding my days thrown upside down, and there isn’t anything I can do about it. I’m okay with that. It’s a great motivational tool. Can’t control certain bits of your day? Then it only makes sense to focus on the things that I can. My work is really a saving grace these last few months. My work and podcasts… the ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair. (I’m totally dating myself on that last part today… it’s cool. Whatever. Google it. Then Tweet Steve Martin, and tell him he’s wonderful.)

Newsletter Goodies

Newsletter Goodies

I’ve been planning some changes for my newsletter for a little while. I have been playing with some different formats for a while, and I think I’m finally happy where the newsletter has arrived as far as that goes. I send it out weekly with a little blip from me and the new blog posts for the week. I’ve recently started including the most popular posts for the week also at the bottom. That was kind of important to have squared away.

Taking a Moment to Slow Down… also Mohawk Hats

Taking a Moment to Slow Down… also Mohawk Hats

It’s been a hectic holiday season this year. This was both good and bad… and ultimately ended with our household catching some sort of yuck. Awesome. I’m taking it as a cue from the Universe to SLOW DOWN. I have the perfect slow project in mind… I’ve been idle for almost a week and spent all of one day in bed trying to catch up. I need to do something with my hands, and I don’t feel like cleaning up the disaster (aka my house) yet.
