If only...

If only I had money to see a fraction of these exhibits....le sigh...

The Secret Museum

Such an amazing collection of photographs by  photographer and blogger Joanna Ebenstein

Enough already...

I haven't posting anything in ages...mostly due to the lack of time that I have these days...however, in light of the recent Chick-Fil-A drama I just have a few things to say...

I support same sex marriage...why you may ask? Because as another fellow human being I have NO right to tell a person who they can and cannot choose for a life partner...because about half of heterosexual married couples fail so are same sex couples really going to ruin the sanctity of marriage? Because 2 loving same sex parents are better than one dysfunctional, straight, alcoholic stepfather which is what I suffered from for years. Because this world can be so ugly as it is, why the hell would we want to deny any amount of love that exists? Because what anyone does in their bedroom is no concern of mine. Because I personally know many same sex couples and I love them dearly and they deserve all the happiness that anyone else does. Because it's never physically or mentally harmed me in any way, shape or form. Because their marriage is not going to send someone else to Hell (if Hell is what you fear). Because there are hundreds of thousands of children that need to be adopted and people are still procreating like rabbits, so I don't believe the survival of the species can be a legitimate argument for anti-gay marriage advocates. And mostly because there are so many other important, serious issues (such as war and famine and the fact that humans are destroying this planet...) going on in the world that I really don't see why anyone is wasting an ounce of energy by worrying about same sex marriage.

Well, the soap nuts turned out to be pretty damn swell. The clothes came out nice and soft and just clean smelling. I shall be placing a larger order soon!

On a side note...classes started up again this I'll attempt to maintain regular posts..but it'll depend on how bogged down I get in the next few weeks. I'm taking one more class that last semester..a normal 15 credit load..but I get easily overwhelmed and anxiety ridden. So for me it's ludicrous.

Talk Dirty to Me

I happened to come across a little blurb today on soap nuts in a magazine. As I've said before, I'm a little slow on the uptake. For those of you who are still in the dark as I was, soap nuts are dried berries from several trees and shrubs in the genus Sapindus. The berries contain saponins which act as a natural detergent. I'm always looking for greener alternatives to chemically laden products. I've ordered a sample pack here. Once I try them I'll let you all know what I think.

SO...I recently discovered fabric sheets for my inkjet printer. I'm sure they've been around for eons but I'm a little slow on the uptake. I bought a pack of 100% silk habotai sheets to try them out and I'm beyond happy with the results!! So happy I made a couple of pillows for my boring couch.

The imagery is nothing new. I've seen several projects on Etsy depicting them, but I just love them so much I don't care. 

*on a side note..I may actually get to derby practice today...holy sweet bejeezus!!!

Bundle of Joy

I've been meaning to post about the newest edition to our little family. Meet...


He's the cutest, grumpiest little guy on the planet!!! A christmas present from Pat. The BEST one so far!


     I was recently pondering disassembling this sadly neglected blog and starting anew. I seem to have lost focus in my direction as to where I wanted this thing to go. I'm not sure I ever even knew to begin with. I discovered I was writing and posting what I thought people would want to read, rather than what I truly felt like writing in the first place. Thus, I quickly lost interest and each post became a chore. 

     I've decided to keep this blog, but truly make it my own. I don't think there will be a said direction. It'll be helter skelter just as I am. I'm going to write what I wish and if some follow my ramblings at least I'll know they're reading what's true to me. Not some farce I've whipped up to please the crowd. If no one reads this..well..that's okay too.
