it's birthday week

this week i'm turning 38. it's yet another non age but that fact doesn't mean that i don't get to eat ice cream

and chicago dogs.

leff surprised me with two presents on friday! the catalog for "bye bye kitty!!!" and the "eden of the east" movie!

he's so incredible.

i've got a lot of yard work to do while there's a break in the clouds. (ha!) so here's last week's pax

and two pieces from excheckered.

new work for both of those sites as well as this week's threadjacker will be up shortly.

another week where i was mostly there in some form or other

i am here.


last week was a heathen that is, thankfully, over. i'm going to leave it at that and gloss over things with some lilac from our yard.

in the middle of the baking extravaganza, i realized that i open evaporated milk like my grandmother did.

part of heathen week involved a trip to seattle. (ugh. i know right?) i hadn't been there since december of last year and i'm not planning on going back until december of this year, if then.

heading home we saw the best painting in the world.

i love how this guy kept proudly displaying his low camp masterpiece to everyone.

right, recap of work blogs. last week's pax and ak,

two piece's from excheckered

and a threadjacker.

new work up shortly!

giveaway on not martha today!

oh hey! you're probably here because of megan's link-a-thon on my giveaway! (thanks again, megan! you seo like no one's business!)

if you're a regular reader, click the above link and go enter to win these items:

are you in the seattle area? the bake sale for the south is TOMORROW starting at 11 am. more info is available here. stop by and pick up some baked goods.

southern tragedies like the tornadoes and flooding often get dropped from the news cycle really quickly so this fundraiser's pretty important. (a note to those i know in rl, BE THERE OR PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR ASS KICKED THE NEXT TIME I SEE YOU!!)

busy x 3

this week leff's at google i/o, i've got a small dinner party and REMINDER! we're having the bake sale for the south at cakespy on saturday!

i still need volunteers to both man the sale and to bake (or both!). if you'd like to volunteer, please click here!

here are two items that i've already made for the sale (and that currently reside in my freezer):

sour cream pound cake (that will be available by the slice)

teeny tiny caramel cakes.

i'll be uploading the items as i finish making them so, if you'd like to follow along, check out this flickr set.

did you know that i love pyrex?

i really do.

this week also saw the end of easter candy

and the roasting of peppers for cinqo de mayo.

i also painted the upstairs bathroom grey with a teeny tiiiny roller.

the bremerton farmer's market opened on thursday. i picked up some orange of the underworld skyr from viking feast ice cream

and a handful of bedding plants from assorted vendors.

don't get me started on the lack of mint.

here's a stupid fast prototype of something that i'm not bothering with. so, basically, it's a pop up tardis card that i made for leff.

vwrop, indeed.

new pax will be up shortly as will today's excheckered

and this week's threadjacker.

that's a tree beard, oh ho ho.

cats, etc.

hope to see you at the bake sale on saturday!!

too much going on

it's may.  of COURSE there's too much going on for me to write paragraphs here.  things that have changed since last week that are noteworthy:

1) i'm organizing a bake sale for the south that's taking place saturday, may 14th at cakespy shop. more info and the volunteer form can be found HERE!

(many thanks to angela for making our logo!!)

2) i smacked the living bejesus out of my knee and have been couch bound for days.  it's disgusting and painful.

the rest of the week in photos with relevant links where neccesary...
