everything’s coming up cute

June 22, 2007

What, with the free passes to a screening of Eagle vs Shark we scored for last night, the new site I’ll be doing consignment with [adorkable crafts] and the awesome new shirt from the small object that I wore yesterday (& today), everything seems to be coming up cute.

Using some basil left over from a friends’ organic produce box, I made some yummy basil simple syrup inspired by ch’s recently posted herbed syrups tutorial. I’m sampling it right now in my iced tea – it’s delicious – while the rest continues to soak in the fridge.

Oh, and I’m unabashedly borrowing this link from whipup.net, check out Threadbanger’s Top 10 Geekiest Yarn Creations on the Web – babies in crocheted Yoda hats.

dollar tree bargains

June 21, 2007

Lately, I’ve been finding myself drawn to the dollar store. The first time was a whim with the boy & I found some great wire trays to use for craft show displays. And a week or so later I left the one by my house with this awesome book & some bugles. Now a week later I find an even more amazing book & mini candy bars.
