and then it is spring

Nearly recovered from the Bunny Business-related exhaustion, I can at last look back at a truly memorable day with some fondness.

Me and my trusty glue gun have been all fired up lately, making beautiful new things and mending beautiful old things. Yet. There are things I can not fix with my glue gun. And they trouble me. I cannot fix the ugliness streaming bountifully from the tiny orange man in the big white house in... Continue Reading →

5 Simple Tips for Crafting Happy

This month, I celebrated one of the few remaining birthdays of my 30's. It was a glorious day of doing a whole lot of relaxing nothing with my sweet husband, who also happens to be my favorite person to hang out and do nothing with. He’s so much like me in some ways, and my... Continue Reading →
