Amidst the madness of moving across an ocean, finding employment, enrolling in schools, and keeping our sh*t together, there is the calmness in knowing "it will all be alright".

Another day has sprung.

In a year, will any of these worries really matter? Maybe one, maybe none.
Will it really matter if there are boxes still unpacked in the basement, waiting to be explored? Will it matter what visitors think when they walk through my mismatched, hodgepodge decorating? No. I heard a saying once that I just adore-- "If they mind, they don't matter; and if they matter, they don't mind."

But still, that restless feeling is underlying. It lurks there, like a silent elephant in the room. "Clean. Organize. Sort. Move this piece of furniture 45 times."

You know?

So I think it's time to quilt. You agree right?

It's so easy to think "I have too much stuff" when you're in the middle of a move. But once it's in place again, there is such a soothing that happens. Stuff. There is magic in it you know.

Do you know how happy this makeup case makes me every single day? I made it to match my "no-wash" dry shampoo. Yup, for realz.

Have you tried that stuff? It's magical! Dry shampoo gives body and lift to my straight-as-an-arrow hair. You say you want "bed head"?? This will do it! Without the hassle of flinging yourself around the duvet every morning! Or putting your head out the car window for some wind action! Or tangling your fingers up in your tresses every morning coaxing those hairs to lift a bit!

Oh,----- you don't do that?
Never mind.

We have about three humungous boxes of stuff ready to donate now, things that don't "bring me joy".  *** The KonMari Method.
This could be a reason I sell my quilts. I don't need 587 quilts in this shizzle, ya know? A bit of dosh for doing what I love = life that makes sense.   (And cents.)

And if I EVER give you a quilt, know that you MUST be one of my favorite people in the world...
Because that hardly EVER happens.     hahaha

Yellow cheers me.  What colors make your tummy flip?

Quilting burns loads of calories too, and only a homemade whoopie pie will do.
(Nod head in total agreement or prepare to be kicked in the shin.)
Just teasing.                   (not)

 Mine are reversed because I like to be different. I think they are usually chocolate cookie part and white middle frosting bit..... but then, I get a lot of things reversed, so don't hold me to it.  

Speaking about whoopie pies, I always thought when watching Sister Act (the film) that Whoopie Goldberg had THE BEST NAME EVER on the face of planet Earth. I was so upset when I found out she was born a Caryn.    lololol     
I like the name "Cookie" too-my friend D girl has a bestie with that name and I just LOVE it! ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

What name would you have if you had to be a food name?
I wonder these things, you see....

Time for me to fly, and let's me honest-you need to get up off that 'puter and get to it.



I <3 p="" u="">


  1. You and your gosh darn amazing quilts!!! Now I want to chop up some fabric into blocks but ohhhhh I'm buried in homework! "I'll go back to school," I said. "It'll be fun," I said. OOF.

    ALSO. What is this magic dry shampoo? I've never tried it but it sounds pretty magical! I wonder if it would give any volume to my straight-as-an-arrow long hair? Hmmmm...

    1. YEssss S--it's called "pssst" in almost any drig store--for about $6 or so--maybe more like $12 where you are in NYC LOL!! But anyways, it's soooo worth it--seriously! I'm addicted. I first saw that Jessica SImpson was talking about it in a magazine years ago, so I tried it and freaked out!!! My limp straight hair now looks properly tousled like I just walked away from a fling. No shiz. Get it. "Psssst" OR "batiste" brand is good too-- on Amazon.com if you roll that way.
