Bitter Sweet




Hi All. I have been felting, yes. I came up yesterday from the studio to get my camera to take pictures for you, got side tracked and returned to the studio an hour later forgetting why I had gone upstairs in the first place. Such is my life. I have the strap for a final bag awaiting attention and decoration and it will be completed tonight (I get butterflies thinking about it- so crazy)

Yesterday my wonderful husband and (equally) wonderful brother-in-law brought by a new van for me to consider. Way beyond what I need...I just need something to get me through the next 8-10 years carting around my man-children and then I will be driving a small, gas efficient, little bomber that says "look at that crazy lady" (complete with a dog and his flapping jowls hanging out the window.)

That being said, the van was very nice, and what I will end up with-who knows. I will leave these serious financial matters to the holder of the big-purchase-purse-strings. I am the holder of the should-we-go-to-the-movies purse-strings.! I cleaned out my current ride, aka "rusty" (creative name, huh), and felt a bit nostalgic thinking of all the toppled ice cream cones, powdered donut sugar and ground in goldfishy crackers. I love my bumper sticker collection, a bit o' Einstein, telling the world I "eat, sleep, felt" and buy local. The nostalgia was fleeting however as I relished in the freedom a reliable vehicle promises, the fresh start, a new beginning...and a new collection of bumper stickers :o)

I spent some time this a.m. trying to locate where I got them! Can't find it, but I will!
