crossing paths

this is where i work now.

come visit me anytime you want to.

im enjoying my time working with fabric and meeting new people. so many ladies come in and want things sewn for them. i need to make a new business card.

any of you lovely graphic designers out there want to whip one up for me?

this has been a very busy week for me. so many new adjustments in my life. good and bad. im going to be looking for daycare in the next week or so, so if anyone has any brilliant ideas for me, shoot 'em over!

im hopefully going to be able to teach some sewing classes at whipstitch soon. if anyone is interested in any, let me know. im also considering doing some little sewing class at my house sometime. drinks and baked goods included. would anyone be interested in this?

its time to get my life together and start doing the things that i want to do.

also, do yourself a favor and listen to these albums:

blonde redhead / penny sparkle
mumford & sons / sigh no more
band of horses / infinite arms
arcade fire / the suburbs
iron & wine / norfolk
jonsi / go

these are the things i am listening to nonstop.



i have really been into cute kids fashions recently. i stumbled across a children's line at zara. who knew!? so much cute stuff. and to quote jenn at seed factory, 'the prices are pretty reas'.


france and holland.

here are many reasons why i wish i lived in france. or at least was able to visit sometime soon.

just make sure you translate everything into english on the site.

also, marry me


life, right now.

i update this blog so rarely that every time i do, i have to say 'this is what is going on in my life now'.
so, this is what is going on in my life right now

parker is talking a lot. saying the most insane things.
last week there were a bunch of kids riding bikes down the street being really loud and squawking. so i said, 'parker, do you hear all those chickens out there?!' now, days later, she keeps saying 'chi-chi allah'. which, if you didnt know, is 'chickens outside!'

i had an interview today. i have another interview on friday.

amy and i are on a telephone family plan. we got a discount for being cute white girls in college park.

i miss a lot of my friends. so many are far away. so many are very busy. get in my life, you guys!

my birthday is soon. maybe ill try and do something fun and clever. please come!

i found some old photos.

this was after sigur ros in 2005. i promise we all had a fun time.


new words.

this is parker in kansas city, at 21 months old.

new list of her words:
[mainly food]

and to end it all.
t.t. wawa - toilet water. or pee.


hairspray and charcoal.

my life is in two extremes right now. some things so great. some things so bad. on the financial side, so bad. but on the people side so, so good!

no one ever told me how terrible the terrible twos are. sometimes i want to ship parker off to somewhere far away. but i always miss her right when she leaves to go anywhere. i just want my not whiney, not bossy, not bratty girl back.

some highlights:

parker has her fingernails and toenails painted.

she says:
tee tee wawa - the toilet
sorry mama
mama car
kaka carseat
jewdada - blueberries
all d e-e - all done amy
apa - ice cream
addddddy - abby from sesame street
manie, nanie, mama - all names for me
ding doooong - in a very southern accent
googa- grandma/yoga
guyku - cycle/jessica

im waiting to hear back on some jobs. the school im teaching at starts next week.

i have great friends. all the old ones and all the new ones.
