working class heroes

I have a confession. My mousepad for my wireless laptop mouse is my picture with the Sex and the City girls that I got at as a Bar Mitzvah favor. Yes, it’s that old.

I really, really love this felt mousemat from Jo’s 2007 holiday gift guide.

If you haven’t noticed already, grey is my favorite color. (Do you spell is grey or gray? I don’t really think there’s a difference…) And I love how the felt has a brown leather trim. Yes, please!!

i am a sewing machine

While I said I never want to sew again after doing Tyler’s halloween costume, I may be missing it a little bit. Last year I bought yards of silk and linen to start my own pillow designs for etsy and never got around to it because I was feeling a little discouraged. Now that I’ve gotten a little practice with my machine, and Ryan is hounding me to get rid of the fabric, I think I’ll start it up. I’ll post some pictures if they come out as I imagined, but for now I’ll leave a little of my inspiration…
