must stop eating cadbury mini eggs and fruit tootsie rolls. yesterday was the craft zine launch party for issue #6 and miss alison set it up at the needle shop. i was running late and picked up the cupcakes from sweet cakes for alison and fell walking out the front door. luckily, sweet cakes are the sweetest people on earth and they fixed up the icing on the ones that were messed up and offered me tea. i've said it before and i'll say it again, i love sweet cakes. http://sweetcakeschicago.com/
at the party, everyone made plush monsters or animals. of course i made a hedgehog. hand sewing really makes me appreciate my sewing machine. i should really use it more often.
a headache that had been hanging around early sunday morning re-surfaced towards the end of the party and i headed home and full on head cold symptoms took hold of my body. had to nap for a couple of hours and then watched december boys and the last episode of black books. what an amazing show that was. it's like high fidelity but set in a bookshop. i love it! wish it had been on longer. benedikte watched it too. excellent!
oh, also, i made a new card that popped into my head a couple weeks back. it's a picture of a peapod with one inside sticking its' tongue out at the other one which it has kicked out and it says "i'm really sorry that you were friend dumped." i'm going to screen the inside message tonight and then i'll be packaging them up tomorrow and they should be in the shop soon. i still need to figure out how to package my mustache stationery. hm.
