my *cousin*, kristen, ordered this full apron last week from me. i’d never made a full apron before. i know they are more practical, but i’ve always thought the half aprons were way cuter. i think i may have changed my mind! i added longer waist ties so they can be wrapped around the waist and tied in front, and then finished it with a punchy posy. i’m sure this apron will soon be spattered with yumminess from kristen’s kitchen – her cookies are almost as good as mine ;)
-loving pandora. its helping with the midday lull when i feel like i’m about to crash. police radio is playing right now, with a little men at work, too.
-i can’t find any chocolate in the house. terrible!
-my kitchen is clean and has been for 2 days! thats a record, folks! but i have a confession: its only clean because it needed to be photographed for an interview. if you look on the buffet in my dining room, its covered in all the usual kitchen clutter. i seriously need to come up with a better drop zone and clutter catchers. on the summer to-do list?
-we’re going to a civil war era barn dance tomorrow night with our kindergartener for her school. not only can i barely breathe in the borrowed dress, but i’ll have to have a couple drinks in me before i’ll even think of posting the pics (who am i kidding? i have about 5 alcoholic drinks a year, and i’m a lightweight. i don’t really like the taste of alcohol). we’ll see… maybe it won’t be so bad. maybe not.
-sean is taking the kids all day on saturday so i can have an inspiration day and try out lots of new product ideas – see if things can translate from paper to fabric. wish me luck!
-sunday i’m at another local craft fair, if you want to come by for a visit. i’ll be at art in the park at the dinosaur caves in shell beach from 10 to 4.
