Making Up in Pictures

I've been absent. A little under the weather. But, I guess a lot of people just step away from the computer during the warmer months for whatever reason. I've also been pretty lazy. Yup. In the last 3 years I haven't been working hard enough in my shop. I have been focusing so much on parenthood and our steps to home ownership- that I just haven't had the time. But I've been trying to take some pictures to show you just what has been keeping me from Hobocamp and other craftiness.

our version of those fun little stars people have on their house. I painted them a citrina. we got the color from The Center For Green Building

trying to figure out a way to spiff up the kitchen with out a lot of money or renovating- 1st try is taking off the cabinet doors- next painting.

making my day a million times a day

Pesto I made- so we had a green & white pesto pizza! Delish!

We've got a big order and a new sewing machine, Confidence by Singer- Ms. Martha Stewart herself approves. So hopefully I'll have some snapshots to share real soon. Oh and we finished painting our bedroom- finally!

I cannot believe how big she is.
Cannot believe it.

Hey, is that a FooGo cup shes sporting?? I just ordered some for Eleanore to take to and from pre school, because I heard they were the best? Do you like it? I ordered both a straw sippy and a hot/cold food container (mostly for hot).

I have to admit, I do miss your postings. But at the same time, its always so exciting when I'm scrolling through my reader and SURPRISE, you've written a new post :)

yes, she has a fogoo whatever it is called. We ended up having to toss the bigger one- b/c the lid broke off and was leaking. But around here BJ's warehouse sells them in a 2 pack- which I had originally picked up. Gotta get back there. The other sippy cup is a klean kanteen. I love that the best b/c it doesn't leak a pinch- but sometimes even when there is just water in it for a day or so it get a smell- where the fogoo I can put in the fridge and give H her cup from earlier and it smells fine. The hot container looks very nice too.
I can't believe how big any of them are- it is ridiculous and next comes Evelyn! Wheeee!
