Bits and Pieces...

I am sooooo unmotivated to blog right now. I've been busy with so many other things that some priorities got pushed aside completely and this happened to be one of them. But it's been so long!! I thought I would just stop by and share a few things that may be of interest.

Way, way, back on April 17th, I set up shop at the Wichita Handmade craft sale. It was a gorgeous day! Here's the humble little booth (and no, that is not me being modest):

And then...I've been playing around a little bit on chictopia. At first it seemed positively fascinating, and I'd still like to explore it more, but it's another one of those things I will probably end up slacking on.

I'd like to say I've been working in the garden, but mom has been doing most of that work while I'm off galavanting. I am super excited though about having our own homegrown vegetables! And, I am trying to cook more. This is one of my favorites, homemade pasta with tomato and zucchini, and cheese breadsticks from scratch. Simple but YUMMY!

At the sewing end of things...I have fallen in love with the simple but effective method of piecing long strips together to create some really circus-esque stripes.


  1. my mom & I did a craft fair on Sunday & it can be exhausting! But fun, of course.

  2. The pasta looks yummy. I've made my own before but could never get it that flat... maybe I just need to suck it up and get a pasta maker.

  3. wow! Your booth looks really good! ... and the pasta look really yummy... and this is an italian speaking !
