snail-mail and caterpillars

With e-mail and facebook and all these modern ways of keeping in touch, who needs snail-mail??? Well, I do! Especially when it looks like this. And when it comes all the way from my dear friend in London, it's even better! Now I need to convince her that what she really wants to do is move to Seattle and fall in love with a geek, but she's not convinced about the whole geek thing. Yet.

And today Miss Maia came home from school and announced that she NEEDED to paint again (hmm, looks like there are some artsy genes at work here). This is a caterpillar shedding it's old skin in the spring rain while walking through a maze. Oh to have such imagination.

Well, when it rains it pours and we have been juggling work and parenting and illness and I can't wait for life to slow down, but at least the sun is out and the kids have been making the most of it! C'est le printemps!

blog gossip


Just found out that my work is to be featured on yet another blog tomorrow, oh the fame is hard to handle but I'll manage. That's a joke by the way. May I never be famous, or pretentious. Or both. Anyway, no idea yet which piece it will be. Find out with me tomorrow at Indie Icing, a blog that is, in these bloggin' gals' words "your delicious dose of indie handmade".

And now it's time to put those cranky kiddos to bed so I can watch Bright Star with my husband.
