and I'm a blog-a-holic. I could spend hours on end reading the lives of others...my 'books' per se. I found some amazingly talent crafting folk today and not only do I covet their time and studios and goods, but their ability to create outstanding craft that will sustain and entertain them for YEARS. One of my new favorite mediums is glass glitter. I found a fantastic source for it that is TONS cheaper than what I have been paying. Shipping is a bitch, but then again, when is it not? cost is cost. But I found this because of my blog reading. Really, people sharing ideas and resources has saved me loads. And we all know how much I love to shop. When I was skinnier it was a new top or pair of pants every week; now it's fabric. I'm a fabric whore. I don't care if I already have 4 under-the-bed storage containers full of delicious fabric waiting for me to cut it to pieces and refashion it into this and that. When I see fabric I LOVE, I weigh my options, evaluate my budget, and usually get it. And I usually get it on sale.
Tonight I watched Pushing Daisies and became jealous of Ned the Pie-maker. No, not because Chuck is super cute and is a mix of Jenny Lewis and Zoey Dasche-something, but he gets to spend his days doing something he loves - making pies.
I want to be my own pie-maker someday.
