Little Bits of Ikea Lust

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

On Tuesday evenings my grandson comes to our house for a few hours while his parents are at school. He anticipates this all week, not because he adores his grandparents, rather because he looks forward to playing the X-box. He’s pretty absorbed in his games, yet I feel as though I must sit here with […]

New Pegboard Wall

Monday, February 25th, 2008

This weekend we finally found time to install the pegboard in my new artroom. The photos show 1) the ugly two-toned green felt stuff that was previously on the wall, 2) the installation in process and then 3) the finished wall. This little nook, which is adjacent to the space we had been using as […]

Dress Your Books

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

No more naked books with these nifty covers you can make for your writing journals and other books. The Moleskin cover tutorial is over at Keyka and the book cover tutorial is courtesy of Moonstitches. Just think of the potential for accessorizing! Imagine mix and match covers coordinating with all your favorite garb and bags. […]

Aren’t These Fun?

Who knew there was a magazine totally devoted to my obsessive compulsive tendencies? I’ve devoured everything on the web site and am eagerly awaiting the issue hitting newstands later this month. Not sure where to find it… Barnes & Noble maybe…

It’s finally here… the Daytona 500, the official start of the NASCAR racing season. Again this year I’m playing in the pool with the guys from Randy’s shop. This is my third year in the pool. The first year I won $100 for finishing the season in second (out of 27 players) and last year […]

Something to Crow About

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

I had to walk back into camp this morning and took the opportunity to snap a few photos. There were a few inches of new snow and a little sunshine so everything was sparkly and white and the snow crunched beneath my feet. As I walked the ridge trail along the lake, I realized this […]
