I have a bad habit of wearing the seat out of my jeans. I like to pretend it’s because I have such an awe-striking butt that the radiation of that much awesomeness just deteriorates the denim. But it’s probably just that I play rough in my clothes and refuse to replace them.
Any of you who follow me on Twitter already were treated to my being hopped up on caffeine on Wednesday. If you don’t follow me on Twitter, you totally should. I get hopped up on caffeine and then tweet. It’s awesome.
It’s slow going on the pillow shams. I’ve already broken a couple of needles and I’m pretty sure I woke the boy up from his nap because I was making so many frustrated noises. On the plus side, the portions I HAVE finished look fabulous.
When the Mr. and I moved to the apartment we had before we moved into this house we had way too much stuff. We had been living in a house that had a ridiculous amount of storage, and we’d taken advantage of all of it. Despite donating, giving away and throwing out a LOT before the move, we were dismayed to discover that our remaining possessions were enough to fill up two semi trucks. Embarrassing, right?
If you know someone who sews, you most likely know someone with far more scissors she needs to keep track of than a non-sewer could possibly understand the need for. Us seamstresses guard our sewing scissors with a ferocity usually reserved for a mama bear with her cubs. How ironic then when we carelessly lose them into our own projects!
Today I’m going to show you the first part of a project I’m doing for our bedroom. As I’ve continued in my organizing, less and less things have been strewn all over the place…and now my bedroom looks, well, a little empty.
Today is another new slow cooker recipe. My love/hate relationship with the slow cooker is fairly quickly moving towards heavy-handed love. With G teething, he’s inevitably grouchy by the end of the day and being able to snuggle him instead of trying to cook makes both of us happier.
Two Saturdays ago I showed you guys how I trick my point and shoot camera into using the right amount of light. Today I’m going to show you the basic photoshop trick I use to make the pictures look truly polished. I’m going to demonstrate this technique on two photos, a white background and a normal scene with stuff in the back so you can see the difference.
