Happy Valentine's Day!
Never mind flowers (I'm allergic and our cats eat them anyway)! I'm not in need of any jewelry either. So what did my thought hubby do for me today? He made me one of my favorite meals, while he has a cold (which I gave him earlier in the week). And, the meal necessitated barbecuing steak. Not a fun task for a vegetarian. If that isn't love, I don't know what is! The menu also included all my favorite carbs: baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and rolls. Yummy! And yes, he earned bonus points for finding a slab of meat shaped like heart!

Enough Already!
A few days of snow is fun, but after more than a week of snow and ice and freezing rain, I'm over it!!! It's made me miss work, multiple pet-sitting jobs, my last craft show of the year, and other important engagements which I can't discuss yet. Luckily, I've only had to drive in it one day- and that was enough. I have to thank myself for paying extra for traction control on my Saturn! Of course, the fur-kids are thrilled: 1) I've been home for days on end, spending lots of quality time with them, and 2) the dogs love the snow! Rudy and Azlan are like little kids romping in it. Even (mostly blind and disc-diseased) Sandy has been adventurous and been tromping around the slippery snowy mountains in the back yard. Thank goodness Grandma knitted him lots of warm sweaters last year!

Go to the KPTV slide show, and look at the 4th photo to see a snow monster...

Arisen from the Dead
After way too many days spent in a living hell called the stomach flu, I'm now back amongst the living! Seriously, the highlight of my week was being able to get off the couch today and go upstairs to the office to check my week's worth of email. What would I have done without my wonderful Jewish mommy coming over to make me drink chicken soup and 7up? And give me meds, and entertain the grandkids, and even do my laundry! Yes, hubby has tried to be helpful. But, I've learned that no one is as good as Mom when you're sick.

It's that Time Again!
After a two month long vacation from craft fairs, it's time to start toting around my tables and bins again. I'm pretty excited; I miss getting out and watching people enjoy the things that make me so happy to create. I'm usually a shy person, so it's good for me to get out and "have" to talk to people. Over the last 4 years of having booths, I have seen both me and my seemly quiet hubby grow to become more confident and independent people. I'm so proud of us! I had
never even thought about the additional benefits having our own crafty biz might have.

Anyone in the Portland metro area who wants to get an early start on holiday shopping and help support my alma mater and lots of indie artists & crafters, come see me next Saturday! I promise to have lots of fun stuff at special prices!

Kinda Creepy
You know those wacky online quizzes? Aron, you should be relieved to know that after answering the bizzaro questions on the What Letter Does Your Soulmate's Name Start With? quiz, my result was the letter A! Furthermore, it said "Possibly (but not limited to) Addison, Aaliyah, Aaron, Adam, Abigail, Abby or Aiden." So there ya go, we are soulmates, it's been confirmed (-:

Blast From the Past
When I was a kid, Garbage Pail Kids were very popular. Well, now someone clever created this:

Misery & Suspense
I know I've been neglectful in my blogging. I have two excuses:
1) my chronic pains have been wreaking total havoc
2) the small percentage of time I can function as a human being has been spent working on an exciting new crafty endeavor

I am only 32 years old, but usually feel more like an 82 year-old thanks to intractable chronic daily headache, restless leg syndrome, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder). And those are the reason I am awake at 3:30am, when I have to be at work in a mere three hours. I will say that one good thing does come out of it all; my fur-kids really love when all I do is lay in bed b/c they get to cuddle with me! Enough kvetching. On to the good news; I'm collaborating on a project with my favorite group of guys. Soon I will be venturing into a new market with my creations. But, that's all I can say for now! (-:
