getting ready for easter

 Used stickers to put all the kids names on these goofy sippies.

 Eggs all ready to be dyed!

Attempting to avoid excessive candy-filled eggs in our egg hunt, so I used this idea from Martha to wrap larger goodies (small markers and tubes of glitter glue) to look like carrots.

pacific blue: surf boy fabric

Got my test swatch back for Surf Boy from Spoonflower.  Needless to say, I didn't make it to one of the final ten spots in the Project Selvage Competition.  But, it's not all that upsetting because the competition was TOUGH.  So many awesome designs!  Looking forward to seeing the finalists' collections come together and I'm also motivated to continue designing my collection, Pacific Blue.  Why not?  Reading the e-book, How to Enter the World of Textile Design, by Lizzy House to get some guidance.  Dream job.

hour of happy


Back from a great camping trip on the beach with the kids.  It's a lot of work to camp!  Laundry that smells like campfire is still piled in front of the washer and the tent needs to be set up in the patio to dry out since we were rained on during our last night.  I'll get to all of that - all in good time. (Yesterday was National No Housework Day, afterall!)  A post about all the camping fun is soon to come... but last night's happy hour with Tom was much needed.  Long Island Iced Tea, appetizers, chips and the best salsa this side of the border at Coyote Bar and Grill
