….manufactured, or maybe even mass-produced?” That is exactly how I picture the conversation starting one day. I make most of my daughter’s clothes and I am positive that one day the novelty will wear off for her.
Changing the subject: I am a little horrified that Sienna “captured” Tinkerbell in her juice cup and then filled it halfway with water. Tink even looks like she is yelling “heeeeelllllppp”…….
So comfy and perfect for layering……can’t wait until it is cool enough for ribbed tights and clunky brown boots.
There are no zippers or buttons in the back….the dress is easy to step in and out of (or over the head) with the straps buttoning in the front

“He was the type of fellow I can’t stand. I’m five foot ten in my stocking feet, and when I am with little men I stoop over a bit and slouch my hips, one up and one down, so that I’ll look shorter, and I feel gawky and morbid as somebody in a side show.” – Sylvia Plath in Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
The page below was just a paint palette I was trying to figure out. Why not put it in your journal, right?
For a while I was experimenting with mailing labels. I printed out a picture of Marilyn Monroe and stuck the labels onto some image transfers I botched (or as I have called them since Kindergarten art class: a “happy mistakes”). Any-hoo, I love how the labels break up the picture.
I worked on this page on a flight back in my investment banking days. Great quote. I always use it when a friend is down on themselves for doing something stupid. Medium: crayons and Sharpie markers.
