last weekend, i finally got to take a letterpress class through oh happy dayclasses that i have been wanting to take for years. i have been dying to test out letterpress and, as i expected, think i might be hooked.
my dad is coming to visit from australia and winter has become spring and our backyard is a mess. it seems everything is adding up to this: it's time to whip our yards into shape and get some projects done!
To help us experiment with different looks, i've been trying to learn to use Google Sketchup, which - if used by someone who knows what they're doing - can be a really useful, beautiful tool. I started with the screened-in porch we're looking to revitalize:
um, yeah...i have a long way to go.
Nothing to do with anything, but quick note to self: these awesome zig zag streamers would look great anywhere
in other news, i'm getting closer to being done with this jumble of yarn;
i'm working on knitting samples of different stitches;
and just for kicks, i got these earrings recently, after the successful purchase of a gift for a friend from this shop (which has tonsof greatstuff). i think i look a little funny in earrings, but i really love these and am going to wear them all the time anyway. also, ears look funny up close.
