alison preszler and ronimal are getting married! he popped the question on the beach in the bahamas. when i saw her two weeks ago, i totally called it. leslie t. and oscar o. are getting married april 5, 2008. it's so funny that all of a sudden, there is just a surge of friends getting married and having babies! good thing i have onesies made.
speaking of onesies, eliza brought a bunch of rwt stuff to white rabbit in iowa city, ia this weekend because she is awesome. i am craft cramming for the two craft fairs i have this weekend (depart-ment in chicago and bazaar bizarre in cleveland). i made a bunch more of the xmas "couldn't have picked a better ________" cards. i really need to make more "i'm glad i picked you" cards since i am nearly out. i am out of the baguette bday cards and i am running low on the croissant. we'll see what i have left. i don't have the money to buy more supplies to make cards with so i am making do and trying to use up the rest of the blank cards i have. with zachary being in cleveland until tonight, the living room is once again a craft explosion. i am trying to be good, but it's so hard when i want to watch a dvd and craft. i just have to lug everything into the living room and once everything is packaged, only then i lug it back into the craft room. yeah, the craft room is really just storage right now in addition to being a functional guest bedroom. i think once the xmas bonus from my day job comes in, i'll buy a cheap dvd player for the craft room/guest bedroom.
in addition to the craft cram 2007 that took place this weekend once i got home from clevland, i went out to dinner with my pal rachel senecal to flo, watched bad tv and movies (frida, life is beautiful, big mistake, safe), and made the best lentils and rice i have made yet. haven't made it in awhile, but wow, it made me really happy. tonight hopefully i will be able to pick up Z from midway in time to watch heroes and make some baked tempura tofu and PACKAGE up cards and make NEW stuff. ungh.
a great article on the controversy surrounding the golden compass:
