Calvin's obsesssed with rhyming and alliterating (can I make that a verb?), and man, it's catchy! (He andEzra are also into "opera time," which is when you have to sing everything you want to say. i love that).
Thank you, thank you for all the wonderful comments left yesterday about "change". So very much appreciated. I'm exercising great restraint not to reply to everyone individually (I want to!), and that in itself may be the biggest and most helpful "blog change" of all for me. That, and reading fewer blogs (wah!!). But please know that even if I don't reply, I appreciate your words and thoughts. And big thanks to my insightful friend Jean who pointed out that blogging each day is, in a way, creating, and the blog it's own creation--an important one to me, at that. Anyhoo....
I've got a bunch of fun mail lately that all deserves it's own individual post, of course, but I'm going to lump it all together as a "wonderful webby wednesday" because it feels easy, and i'm into easy these days, okay? Here we go:
I'm lovin' this band that I got from Lizette's new Etsy shop. Fun, fun. And now Calvin *really* wants one too....hmm...time to dip into that paypal stash again (I'll never get a new sewing machine at this rate!). Thanks, Lizette! And did you see her super cool packaging? Sooo satisfying to rip into that, let me tell ya.
Slightly random, but definitely web related. I finally framed some prints I've had sadly laying around in-waiting for awhile. I went with Amy's recommendation of the frames over at Dick Blick (love them! Thank you!), and used them to frame a fabulous print by Katey of One Good Bumblebee, and the Tiny Showcase print by Camilla. I thought they should stay together on the wall too....it's SO much fun to have new art up, isn't it? (Whew, how many links can one paragraph have?!)
And has everyone seen the new booklet of knit toys by Jess Hutch.? My copy arrived in the mail this week, and it's full of sweet treats to make. I think I'm going for the snake first. She's got more copies being printed soon, I believe. Oh, speaking of knitting--for some cool goth knitting, check out this place, the Anticraft.
And then, rounding out Wonderful Webby Wednesday (I really need to get out more..I'm enjoying that alliteration wayyy too much)....Lisa once again has spoiled us rotten. I'm now deeming her the "greatest thing finder" ever (Pippi Longstocking, anyone?).....here once again she has found some FABULOUS vintage girls clothes for sweet Adelaide. And THAT DRESS!! Do you see it on the right? The fabulous detail on the front? Oh, it's yummy. And fun postcards and ribbon and ric rack. And a knitting book by a Maine author, that miraculously, I don't have! Yay! Yay! Yay for wonderful webby friends!
