Happy New Year

Ok. So I am late greeting you with glad tidings of a new year. If we are going to make this work long term, you should understand that this will happen from time to time. I am totally on fire. Except when I am not. Anyhoo, 2009 has already whispered in my ear to say that nifty things are waiting around the corner. I hope it shapes up for you and yours as nicely as I have decided it is going to shape up for me and my family.

I haven't yet fully unpacked my new office, so I have not really made much use of the new space for craftiness. Well, I take that back. I did recover our dining room chairs last Friday night--just in time for our most excellent house guest to arrive. It was a relatively simple project, complicated only by my atrocious cutting skills. Happily, my atrocious cutting skills were offset by the ease of cutting good upholstery fabric with a smallish geometric pattern. All hail 2-inch repeats! Still, as I was recovering the chairs and google chatting with another most excellent friend, it was brought to my attention that it is a little weird to start upholstery projects at 9 o'clock on a Friday. While typing. But, well, that's me.


Speaking of cutting semi-straight lines, I should report that my lovely husband gave me a most excellent paper trimmer for Christmas. No, not the $400 ream cutting behemoth of my dreams. This might be better. Because, while this 15" cutter does not plow through 500 sheets of bond at a time, it does perforate, score, and scallop like nobody's business! I am totally loving it.


Oh! Also, I have been working on another free printable project. This time I am doing children's valentines cards (though amorous adults will also be free to use them). I have been putting together some non-traditional, cute-but-not-cutesy illustrations, but I would love to incorporate your ideas...Anybody? I hope to have them up by the end of the month so you can print print print to your hearts' content.

How about fruits and vegetables? I just think you could draw the HELL outta them and come up with something hilarious to go with it...
