M.I.A.

Well I feel like I haven't posted in forever... and that's pretty much because I haven't! So in case you've been wondering why I've been missing in action- it's because I've been sewing like a demon. (If there was a sewing demon, that is.) Making those diaper bags started it off and then I went on to making lots more bags for other people. And most recently I decided I needed some new stuff for my living room. So I rearranged the furniture, sewed some pillows and curtains, hung a bunch of fun family photos, put new tchotchke pieces on the mantel, and repainted these 3 canvases I have. (I got and painted them about ten years ago - and they looked dated - so I've been thinking about repainting them for a while now. And don't think that this means that I'm an artist or anything - I just kind of slap paint on the canvas and hope it comes out.) Anyway the point is - my new living room looks pretty great, if I do say so myself. Plus much less expensive then if I had gone around and bought everything - so bonus. And if you know me - then you know I LOVE red. If it's red, I pretty much want it. So my previous living room was mainly reds, including the aforementioned 3 canvases. But this time I decided that I needed to control my red craving and embrace more colors. It's not like I'm prejudice to other colors or anything, but you know how it is with your favorites. But now I've got greens, purples, blues, and yellows along with my red. And I love it - it's one big rainbow of a living room. (Well, you know what I mean.)
