Crafty Round Up, Part 1: Banners a.k.a. Buntings

I've been really busy with work lately and I think it's about time I shared some of the things I've been working on. I've completed so much since my last round up that it's a 2-parter (maybe 3!). First up: Banners! I've been having so much fun with these, playing with colors, shapes and typography. I'm also working on a whole series of special occasion banners/buntings, most with 100% vintage fabrics and I'll be showing them soon, too.

Here we go....

Our tiny little coastal vacation

But, soft! what light from yonder window breaks?

Could it really be the sun?!

We've been deluged for several days running and of course the day the sun finally returns I come down with a miserable cold :(

Luckily I just finished a book order and can take the rest of the day to relax and read my latest in a string of dystopian YA fiction I've been devouring lately: Winter's End by Jean-Claude Mourlevat. Well, the rest of the day until the kids come home anyway. I was hoping to put on a movie for them afterschool--Tigerlily and I finished Book 5 of Harry Potter last night and the tradition is to watch the movie the next day. But now that the sun is out I suppose I really should take them outside.... I should stop my grumbling, some fresh air and sunshine is probably just what I need, too!

Playskool tragedy

Well, I've done it again: fallen of the blogging wagon. I think I'll just jump back on with something totally random, shall I?

Each evening after Lyric's been tucked into bed with a story and a song I read to the girl (Harry Potter--we're nearly on book 6, yo!) while she draws at her art space. That girl never ceases to forget to turn lights off when she's done with them, so I nearly always end up going back to shut it off. I had a laugh-out-loud moment the other night when I went back to find this:

:Skye and I had a good laugh, then I turned off the light and started devising my teaching moment for this tragic scene....
