Indie Mart

No, not like the Indie Mart, but kinda related. Faked you out, didn’t I? Thought I was going to be all like “Don’t shop at all!” Okay, it’s tempting to say that and be done with it out of sheer laziness, but really, it’s way 

Day 30

You hear “30 items” and think of this huge amount of clothing, when it’s really only a fraction of what’s in your closet. I enjoyed wearing the things chosen, but became aware of the things I missed as well as aware of the things that 

Flawless

Sick day. More like last night was a sick night, and today was spent focusing on very small things, like my desk. My poor desk catches it coming and going. I am astonished at just how easily I can go from a catalog-shoot-perfect desktop to 

My Monday

It’s odd to work on a Sunday. The world feels much more relaxed and mellow, and you’re able to go in with a very light heart (despite needing an extra cup of coffee). Sunday night comes, and the world starts to speed up and hunker 

I Wanna Be a Cowgirl

March is National Craft Month. There are plenty of times where I come across the remnants of a client’s craft project, started in a burst of enthusiasm only to be stuffed in a box or some random corner once the new project smell has worn

I Love My Hair

Today, I experimented. I make all sorts of concoctions for bathing: salts, bubble bath, scrubs, soaks. The coffee scrub makes my skin feel wonderful, and I decided to try it on my scalp to see what happened. Well, my scalp feels wonderful. But I was 

Stars and Garters

Today involved an educational fieldtrip to SCRAP (Scrounger’s Center for Reusable Art Parts). They’re a gem hidden off of Oakdale and Toland. If you have a project that needs some strange something you may not be able to find in the stores, this is your 

There and Back Again

The bulk of today was spent walking across the city. Jeans (of course), t-shirt (of course), gym shoes, and my favorite jacket. It’s a WWII British Naval Officer’s jacket, and it started falling apart. I wound up taking it to Swankety Swank, a local boutique
