Renting DVD’s

March 26, 2009

I’ve been on a Gilmore Girls marathon. I have the first three seasons on DVD. I went to the video store to rent Season 4. Watched it, loved it. (i’ve seen it a few times) πŸ™‚

Last night, I took it back and was planning to rent Season 5. Nope. Sorry. They have Seasons 1,2,3,4,6,7 but no 5. The video guy said sometimes people like them so much, they just keep them. How can you do that????? You can buy them on Amazon for not that much money, why ruin it for everyone? So, now I have to skip Season 5 (even tho I’ve seen it before) and go straight to 6. I’m bummed. It was time for Luke and Lorelai’s romance. I haven’t seen 6 or 7, so no spoilers please πŸ™‚ sigh.


Ok, is this cute or what? πŸ™‚ It’s a Fairy Cape, listed in my ArtFire shop. You can also see that my Red Bud tree is in bloom πŸ™‚ and the grass is green. The poor Red Bud tree is coming out soon. It’s growing right next to the garage is big enough that it’s going to start tearing up the foundation. I think it would be better to simply move the garage, but no one agrees with me.

Oh well, I guess we can get another tree.

I just posted some Lavender Sachets in my ArtFire shop


There are two of them, and they lie nice and flat, not taking up any room at all in your drawers.

Lavender is one of my favorite herbs, scents, flower… they are beautiful no matter if they are growing on the plant, or dried in a bundle.

Heirloom Sewing

March 14, 2009

I am about to start a new adventure – learning Heirloom Sewing. I’ve wanted to do this for Years…and now I finally am. I’ve collected my supplies –

I have this book – (it’s linked to the place you can buy it)


I’ve also purchased fabric, needles and thread from Fine Stitchery and some iron-on dots for smocking…phew! Barbara is awesome to email with, and she had great things at fabulous prices in her store.

Not sure what I’m going to tackle first, but I’ll let you know!

March Cotton Spice

March 3, 2009

is at the Proofreaders! I may have a few things to correct, but basically it’s finished!!! It’s always such a good feeling when I’m done.

To celebrate the completion, I opened a little online shop HERE

Art Fire is really a pretty awesome place. It’s fun and very interactive. Extremely easy to do. And Cheap. I know we’re not supposed to use the ‘c’ word, but it is. I see no reason to call it anything else. It feels homey. If you want to sign up and get a shop of your own, pleaseΒ  put me down as the referrer. (KarenGass) I get points or free stuff or something πŸ™‚

Back to the sewing room! πŸ™‚
