Yadda, yadda, yadda

Have you tried these Hershey kisses that are candy corn flovored? Crazy right!? I still haven't decided if I really like them yet but I can't stop eating them so I guess that's a good sign...
I made this necklace for a friend who is on Team Edward. I'm a HUGE Twilight fan (the books, so far NOT the movies) but I’m a Team Jacob girl. Sure, Edward and Bella are perfect for each other blah, blah, blah but he left and I automatically joined Team Jacob. I have finally completed my flannel dress! Yeah! I was so nervous to use the material and end up with a finished product that I hated. Then I thought to myself, "Self, you can always go buy more, duh!" So I made a pattern from another dress that I had that looked simple (WRONG! I was so confused when I tried to sew the liner to the neck and armholes. There was a lot of seam ripping going on) Eventually, spatial relations clicked in my head and I was able to work it out. The pattern wasn’t perfect and I ended up with some wonky pouching on the sides, so I made these nifty little button on strips and voila! Awesomeness! It’s my new favorite dress and I made it! Gotta love it when a plan comes together :)

I think I'm going through a quarter life crisis. Things just feel off. I do realize that it could be partly because I am unemployed. I’m having a great time hanging out at home with my boys and making stuff but all of a sudden I’ve been hit with a surge of surreal strangeness. It’s hard to put in words. I think maybe I’m ready for a change, or many changes. So to start things off I dyed my hair black. Ha! I’m not kidding… it’s really, really, really black.


  1. Do you know how to make tote bags?

  2. Me too!!! It's seriously my new favorite dress I'm gonna wear it all the time! Ha! Do I know how to make tote bags... Affirmative. Have you seen my patriotic tote I use as a diaper bag? Made it.

I'm easily distracted by shiny things and brownies. I love autumn and all things associated with it... except raking leaves. I'm a HUGE fan of smiling until your face hurts and laughing so hard milk comes out your nose.
