Font party

Man, oh, man do I love fonts.  I spent several hours today downloading new ones.  I don’t know if that’s a Sabbath-y type activity, but it was restful.  And it is a day of rest.  Some of my new fonts I had to pay for (2 Peas has masses of… Read More

Go ahead, nag me

Wedding season is closing in and I usually give aprons and cookbooks to the brides-to-be.  I like to make the aprons and I have a great new pattern to use (thanks Mom!), but I haven’t been able to get it together enough to sew.  I’m hoping that if I mention… Read More

Because it’s always Earth Day to me (gag)

Les produits de beauté

I am a bit obsessive about my skin.  I cannot tell a lie, it looks good. Especially for being as old as it is.  I like to make some of my skin care products, others I buy.  The bottom line is that I have a motley assortment of bottles and… Read More
