Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

Beautiful Things to Look At

While you sit and wait (because I know you do) for me to post something new here on the crafty blog... why not take a look at the photography of this fine fellow. Not only is he about to marry one of my most cherished friends... he's also quite skilled with a camera. These are a few of my favorites:

Tokens On a String

Way back in October-ish I embarked on the great token project. The plan was to craft a little felt token for each day spent living abroad. Well... I haven't exactly kept up. (It's a lot of days, ok!?)

I did, however, finally string up the majority of the tokens I had made. I placed the garland over my bed and... I think I like it. Adds a bit of a carnival atmosphere?

Oh Vagina Cake

By far the most viewed photo in my flickr stream is of vagina cakes from International Women's Day back in... '07? It will even come up if you google "vagina cake" which I know you all do from time to time.

Yesterday Cakehead Loves Evil picked it up too. Oh, funny!

2009: The Year for Sewing

Looking over the projects I completed in 2009, it was easy to see that sewing took over. When my sister was gracious enough to gift me a sewing lesson for my birthday, I'm sure she had no idea she was contributing to an addiction. Soon enough I was tied to my machine. Just as soon as one project was in the works... another was cooking in my little brain (or the brain's of others). Aprons seem to be what I spent the bulk of my energy completing. Here are a few of my favorites:

Apron Mosaic

Other non-apron favorites include:

Making my own shirt!

Making Lemonade Weekend

Embroidering a bevy of mermaids for a lovely new bride.


And finally finding a decent bagel recipe.

Vegan Bagels

Happy New Year! I wonder what crafting addiction will take hold in 2010...
