an anti-bullying day

i am really loving
painting on book pages.
and paper piecing.
here are some
of my new creations.

and here
is the anti-bullying shirt
we made for saige
to wear to school today.
we got our inspiration from here .
koen won't let me
design him a new one -
he just wants to wear this
pink spray painted graffiti type shirt
that devin made - many years ago.
i needed to take it in a bit
for his skinny little frame,
but, it works.

a cleaning

it's getting all
spring-y feeling again.

they are calling for snow
i'm getting all  -
'spring cleaning inspired'.
with my closet almost done -
i'm thinking about
tackling the garage.
if i break it down
into smaller sections -
and i keep at it
i'm sure i could get it done
in a couple of weeks.
just in time for
our spring vacation.
then, when i come back
it will be
yard and garden
i like having big projects.
what about you?
what will you do to get ready for spring?

an issue

i've been cleaning out my closet.
trying to be really brutal
with myself.
it's been hard.

that aside -
i found a stack of magazines
in the back of the closet.

people who know me
will say i have a magazine problem.
i really have HEAPS of them.
so this particular stack
is about a foot and a half tall.
not too bad
when you compare...
um - oh - never mind that.

i thought to myself -
'i need to go through these -
there might be something good inside'

i realized -
that most of these particular -
back of the closet magazines
were from 2005!!
why am i so ridiculous??
i quickly went to the recipes section
and ripped some out.
will i ever make any of them?
flipping quickly through
i discovered there is nothing i need
between these pages.
and furthermore -
do any of the other magazines
that i currently am storing -
have anything of value in them?
