Material Girl

Cruising around the net today, I found some things I really want like this cute fabric from kitty-craft which I have absolutely no use for, and this "don't Socra-tease me" nail polish from OPI, and I already bought this wonderful cast iron frying pan (I found it at figandplum and love it).

And now it seems that all my favorite bloggers (yarnstorm, soulemama, angrychicken) have written books, and of course I want them all. I don't know where these fabulous ladies get all the time to keep up with their blogs, write books, and do all the creative things they do. I don't even try to keep up - I just enjoy what they share and take away a little inspiration. Oh, the Internet is a dangerous place - or at least an expensive one!

Sometimes I have a difficult time just adding new posts because I really get attached to the way my blog looks with a particular picture. For instance today it was difficult to replace the wee little blueboy (another Internet purchase) - hopefully he'll arrive in time to accompany us on our Boston vacation. Time to get off the computer before I can't afford a vacation!

Wee Little Blue Boy

Well now that it's been almost a year since my last post, I've decided to try to get back into the swing of things. I miss blogging mainly because of the way it makes me look at things. When I'm blogging I pay much more attention to the details of my life - what would make a great picture? (and it's often some odd little detail), what have I done today that's interesting? The blog helps me keep focused on a project so that I can actually show some progress, and hopefully at some point a finished project. I do it for myself mainly to have a sort of chronicle of my life - it all goes by so quickly, I really enjoy looking back sometimes. Even though I haven't been writing, I have been reading. I still use my blog to get to all my favorite blog links. I recently saw this sweet little blue boy at Little Jenny Wren's (you can see him snuggling with the cat in her blog title) and just had to have him. So now I'm anxiously awaiting his arrival (all the way from Australia) - and hoping to incorporate him into the blog on our family adventures.
