Hi friends! Happy Thursday and happy birthday to my good friend Andrew. 25 today. I hope you had a great day! See you on the internet.
I’ve had these old children’s cardigans for a while now in all different colors. I finally really wanted to do something with them.
This is a little pocket. It’s not a big deal. It didn’t take long–it’s not really store-bought quality because it’s all hand embroidery and it’s the first time I’ve tried something like this, but the pocket is on there pretty securely!
I think it will hold up for an active 3-year-old until it’s outgrown. That pocket can hold a lot of crayons, too–I already tested it.
I have a few more. I think they are going to have wings on the back!

where have I been?
…meeting with a tax laywer (sup 15.2% self-employment tax? what a pleasure to finally meet you!)
… playing world or warcraft to lessen the heartache
…cutting out flowers. forever.
…makin the cupcakes
..checking out alison and tanya who made their avatars on Face Your Manga!
and FINALLY registering for graduate school and buying the textbooks, the folders, the notebooks, the back to school shoes!! (I’m taking Pop Culture, Mass Media, and Visual Rhetoric)

My friend Alison, who ordered her bridal bouquet and boutonnieres for me a while ago, asked me to make her some hoodies like the one I made for my friend Erica. (That was a lot of hyperlinks for one sentence, huh?)
Lots of felt cupcakes getting made. Here are a few of my favorites taken in my crappily-lit office– I’ve been doing this all day while watching the olympics. I haven’t turned off NBC since they began…even if I don’t even really care about the sport, I can’t turn it off!!
My brother went to college today. I’m a little worried for him. Mostly I can’t believe my little brother is in college. I wonder how weird it is for my parents tonight having the house all to themselves the first time.
Also, have you seen this site, Face Your Manga, yet? You create an avatar of yourself in the style of Japanese comic book art…manga.
That’s me. Make yourself and I’ll post it! What do my readers look like as comic book characters???
