I had a pair of paints that I accidently splattered with bleach. I would venture to say that most of us understand how hard it is to find pants that fit well and comfortably. This was a pair that fit that criteria, so I was loath to throw them out because they were stained. Enter this book and solution found. Cover the stains with some shashiko embroidery. Here are some more glimpses of the fabulous projects in the shashiko book Jen sent me.
Also, I am so excited about the Blurb photo book I made. After you make your book you can have a preview of it online. So what if I only ordered 5 copies. I am officially a published author/photographer! When you consider it took me ten plus hours to get it all put together you might understand why I have been out of action (well, that and Christmas shopping, card writing, chocolate bon bon making, and all the other things you people are caught up in this time of year as well.) My holiday manifesto this year has been EFFING SIMPLIFY!! (Sorry Mom for the implied cursing – my face is sporting a sheepish grin. I’m not even going to stress you out with telling you about the tatoo I’m thinking of getting…….) So the part of EFFING SIMPLIFY I have implemented is to only use computer time for absolutely essential things.
