I can has craft room?

I pulled my head out of the sand long enough to head to Menards to gather supplies.  A few short moments later, I was on my way!


My Aneboda the way Ikea intended it.

My first day back at work was incredibly painful.  I really enjoyed not working.  Or, rather, not working “for the man.”  Trust me, my vacation was filled with lots of hard work.

But that wasn’t the problem.  Being away from work meant being away from fabric.  And sales.  And what the hell everythingisonsaleandIwanttobuyitall.  *breathe*  Quilting cottons are 50% off and that never happens.  Clearance is also 50% off.

And I can’t buy anything.  Meh!  My sewing rooms makes me want to cry.  I’m not exaggerating.  I actually get teary-eyed when I think about tackling that mess.  The Hippy actually said to me, “If you start crying again, you’re fired.”  Seeing me so pathetic, a friendly coworker offered to bring her gay friend (her words) to whip my craft room into shape.  And I need it.

Good news: We have pants clothes hangers coming into work.  Which will be nice, because it will make more room in my drawers for all the skirts I’m going to make 😀

We haven’t had a good poll in awhile:

I feel slightly like a shameless, shameless hussy.  I promised myself over and over (like so many things before) that I would never use Twitter.  I already use facebook and obsessively change my status to tell the world how I feel at any given moment.  I felt no need to use twitter and have yet another social networking obsession on my hands.

And yet…

I failed.

Go ahead; add me if you do choose.  I’m sure I will follow you in return.  But I warn you–there will likely be nothing other than RSS feeds, because I still prefer facebook.  Who knows, maybe that will change.  Maybe I will catch the Tweeting bug.  Maybe I will suddenly decide I’m so full of myself that I feel the worlds needs to know what I had for breakfast.  Maybe.  If there is enough demand for it.  Until then, just consider it an update as to when I’ve updated my blogs or my Etsy shop.

Quick Post…

I’ve been making stuff, yes, but I have no clue where my card reader is, so for the time being, I can’t post about that stuff.  See the other blog for details…

Until then, I have things like this awesome-possom video.  Enjoy:
