buzz buzzed


eagle eyes may have noticed my new avatar over in yon sidebar.  that's basically what i look like these days. insane.  happy.  (carolyn, those scissors rock my world.)  insanely happy.  but truly also insane.  i obsessed for like eight hours over my "meet the designer" post, which is up now over at project sewn. HOURS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SPENT SEWING!  AND MOST ASSUREDLY DRINKING!

truly, there are so many ideas buzzing around in my brain, my sewing room (read: four feet of space right next to ruggy's beleaguered desk) is filled with half finished projects as i flit from fabric to fabric like a drunken bee.  

so, i bid you happy lunch hour, i'm gonna go clang around for a minute, and please catch me over at my intro post on project sewn if you're so inclined!

    2. Then they are yours! I'll bring them to work tomorrow and we can arrange pick up! And I am loving the Canon more these days, all because of you!

  14. I love how, when I was furiously trying to brainstorm for my bio, I considered taking a new headshot... and then I thought, "nah, no one else is doing that, I'll just pull something out of Flickr." THEN YOU HAD TO GO ONE UP ME, GAH. The new photo is amazing!

    Also, I'm pretty sure my bio took 8 hours to write too. Whyyyy is it so hard to come up with words about ourselves? Shouldn't we know better than anyone else? Ha, I should have made Landon write it :P

  17. I thought you'd bid us a lunchtime happy hour. I was about to call you a well-coiffed genius.

    Actually, the genius comment stands, nonetheless. Aaah, Project Sewn!
