Today was one of those days where a lot was accomplished but it didn’t really feel like it. I’m in a rush because tomorrow I get to drain a little more of my money to get my hair done — but when you look like a white Erykah Badu with a vicious overgrown fro, it needs be done, y’all. I don’t need to be calling Tyrone.
In between the joys of mopping and dusting and laundry, I took some photos of new stuff to add to the Etsy shop. In fact, I even created a new design in about an hour this a.m. Thank you, chunky yarn.
Is that flower a little too much? No worries, it’s removable.
You have to love the instant gratification of a chunky yarn that’s almost like roving. And the flower is crocheted from a crunchy silk ribbon, not yarn at all, and attached with a pinback. I also like the twist of the oblique rib, both literally and metaphorically speaking.
I finished another pair of gauntlets over the weekend, but just got around to a photograph:
In other news, I did have a productive weekend — transportation, which I lack, and which my husband can provide in either chauffeur skills of the lending of his car, impact my productivity greatly. We attended BarKamp Miami on Sunday, which was a WordPress sponsored event with lots of half hour seminars on blogging, apps and sundry. I’d like to think it inspired me.
I also reconnected with an old work pal, Miss Gail, who currently blogs at Magpye. Check her out. We had an enjoyable time being interviewed by a University of Miami journalism student who was also an intern for Teen Vogue — my favorite magazine. Much gossip ensued. And Gail and I caught up and discussed such burning issues as the cutlet-like shape of Madonna’s thighs and and alarming popularity of Lady Whore Whore (or Lady CaCa) as we both individually refer to Lady GaGa.
These are things I cannot discuss adequately with my husband, I’m sure you understand.
Until tomorrow, when I may just chop it all off! (My hair, that is).
