About Me

My photo
I'm a Great Northwesterner that is now loving life in the Midwest. I am a world class napper. I'm very bossy. I clearly love a good glass of Scotch. I wear aprons every chance I get.

This time NEXT week...

Not like the last time...

Things have slowed down a little around the old homestead - and so here's a little something for me to work on - and you, too!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make! But you probably will . . .I'm just saying.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year. That gives me a good 10 1/2 months to get it done!
4. It will be a surprise.

The catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so, and leave a comment telling me they did, win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

My Dad may now have a new nickname on the course...


17 Days until he is home...

Not about food...

I am so happy that Neil Gaiman won the Newbery this year. I'd been talking up Gaiman at school and now the librarian HAS to buy the book...it's a NEWBERY! But not everyone is happy...

Something for your wall...

I think these are awesome message boards from Matteria - a cool collection on a wall would be stylish AND efficient.


Now - we all know I loves me a Disney waffle (and if you didn't, you do now). But this seems a little odd. And I want some. Now.

And yes - I know that I haven't posted in forever - and now it's just videos - of foods. I know. I know.
