Schneider's Barbala

Last week, in an ill-fated Sunday attempt to find a turquoise necklace for Amy to take back to Bridgett, we discovered Bohemia, an Artist's Emporium, in the same strip mall as Picante and Yikes!

We found lots of cool stuff there, but nothing suitable for Bridgett and nothing I thought I couldn't attempt on my own. So I came home and collaged Schneider's Barbala.

You. Just. Rock.
I love that you see something that inspires you and you do somethind about it immediately, like you did with teaching yourself how to crochet. And your end products are always amazing. Good for you!

40 observations on the eve before my 40th birthday

Indulge me! In no particular order:

1. I love making pinatas. I've made a pinata for Jack's birthday for the last five years. The Death Star, a jellyfish from Spongebob, Patrick Star from Spongebob, Plankton from Spongebob, and just this year King Pig from Angry Birds. I've been commissioned by a friend to produce another Angry Birds Pig pinata for her son's birthday. I'm gonna do it.

2. Right now three of my ten fingers hurt when I type. I don't bite my nails (unless one is already broken) but I do pick and pull at my cuticles. I've developed acute paronychia, a bacterial infection, at those three finger tips. The one that hurts the most is my right thumb. Space bar hell. I've done this to myself since childhood. When I'm pulling and nipping at a hangnail, I know it's going to hurt but I go ahead and do it anyway.

3. I consider myself substantial: in body and in mind. I am robust. I have zeal. I just don't have any confidence.
