Lovely Weather

Charleston has finally cooled down enough where I could sit on the porch all day. And today, I just might. I've got some sketching to do for a collaborative project with an elementary school, some sewing that needs to get done, and a headful of whimsical ideas.

This lovely photo (one of maybe 6 I own that are in color) was found at a little antique store down the road from my old apartment in Cleveland. Everything looks absolutely glamorous (compared to hitting the pool nowadays, where everyone seems, well, fairly trashy), which is yet another reason I should have been born a few decades earlier.

Anywho, happy Wednesday, or Friendsday, as Lisa Frank says. Because I liked her on Facebook, and now have plenty of colorful goodness in my newsfeed.

And, most importantly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE RECIPIENT OF THE AWARD FOR RECEIVING MOST AWARDS, my wonderful friend Debbie, who recently rescued a baby squirrel and took him to work with her every day in a shoebox. She's the best squirrel mother ever!
Love ewe, girl!

First Place

So a few weeks ago, before being employed, I made these little books of awards because, well, I thought they were funny. And they are funny! They're the perfect size to slip in your pocket, and blank on the back to add an extra sentiment or two, in case the award category doesn't quite make your point. Each book has 20 perforated pages for you to tear out & give to those who deserve them the most. Now available in my Etsy shop:

Earn Your Merit Badges

On the days I work, I think about wonderful things and drink as much free coffee as I want (all of it) (not really) (maybe). On my days off, I earn wonderful Whimsy Scout merit badges and make marvelous things. Work isn't bad, and the hours are great. Right now, my biggest goal is to save my pennies for wishes and an apartment, so I have plenty more space to make plenty more wonderful things. Oh, and to get a rabbit and a sheep and maybe a few animals.

Although, my mom isn't too appeased with the idea of a "grandsheep" as she called it.
