What's new in the shop
I'm still on a part time schedule. My leg is healing. You can't even tell I jammed a needle in my leg just by looking at it, but sometimes it lets off an almighty twinge just in case I forgot for a minute how dumb it was to store needles unprotected. And yet, despite feeling better, my work still isn't getting done at its normal brisk pace. I blame the IRS and their stupid Schedule C. Ugh, taxes. Curse you, Schedule C!
I did manage a small update yesterday. Friday noon updates are temporarily suspended until I can get back on track. For the next few weeks, I will post new items as I finish them.
Green With Indie show on March 9 in Webster University's Grant Gym. This is a fun mid-size Craft Mafia craft show full of indie crafters, many who you see at other shows around town like Strange Folk and Rock 'n Roll. It's worth a trip if you are local. If you would like a stack of flyers to hand out in your office or to your friends, email me and we will make arrangements. Each flyer has a form for you to fill out your information and be entered to win a door prize. No purchase necessary, but you do have to actually attend GWI to be eligible to win.
What I'm working on

What I'm reading
- I just finished Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. It was a book club selection and I've already told the chooser of the book that I'm going to give her such guff over it. Guff! Guff! Guff! :) I didn't enjoy the book, but I am very much looking forward to the lively conversation it will inspire. Those are the best kind of books, I think. I dislike conflict in real life, but when it comes to books, it is boring when everyone agrees.
- Speaking of conflict dislike, I discovered the Captain Awkward blog this week. She has some great advice for navigating sticky situations.
- I've fallen down the short story rabbit hole. Most recently, Doctor Who: The Angel's Kiss. I'm such a hopeless geek.
