Ironic Indeed

Sorry about dropping off the radar like that. I'm still here and all is well.

We've had a few colds, Monkey is still teething, and we're knee deep in a Spring Cleaning that must be done before Monkey's birthday party in April.

(The whole town is like one big brush cleaning project. Every day brings the smell of yard waste burns and fresh piles of leaves for compost and mulching. It all has to me done before the rainy season ends, or we'll be in big trouble when brush fire season starts!)

Add to that the feeling like I've been more Blogger than Crafty lately, and you get an impromptu Blogcation.

Which is ironic, given that Liz at Inventing My Life generously graced me with this last week:

I haven't been feeling very crafty, but I am working my way back.

I have to.

Monkey is expecting a giant Handy Dandy Notebook cake, and if I can't find a green striped shirt, I may have to make one...


  1. congrats!

    we still love blues clues here too even though trinity's 8. but she likes steve way more than joe so she doesnt like the newer ones...

    good luck on getting all your spring cleaning done! my birthday is in april too!

  2. Years ago, my ex-husband bore a STRONG resemblance to Steve, which I found pretty darn cute. I tried to get him to wear a green shirt once (just once!) and he refused.

    In any case, it's good to see you back! I thought of you last night as I practiced my wire loops. :)

  3. Can't wait to see pictures of the cake!

  4. Glad to see you are still around. Congratulations on your award!

  5. I'm a big Blue's Clue's fan! In my classroom of 6th graders I had a musical "Mailbox" and they couldn't get enough of it!


What's up, Pixel Peep?
