It started with a paint night. My friend took me to my first paintnite a couple of months ago. Though my painting wasn't anything to write home about, it was a great exercise to fearlessly throw paint at a canvas and come up with a painting in under 2 hours. (My usual problem is - I put a… Continue reading My Betty Grable
The quest for bedside tables has been going on for upwards of a year, I would say. At first, Mark and I scouted out the new, matchy-matchy stuff at nice furniture stores, but nothing really caught our eye. First of all, they all seemed so generic and void of personality! Secondly, they were sooo expensive… Continue reading A Bedside Table Makeover
I've made myself veeery busy lately with repainting a bunch of stuff in my house. The big project involved the sanding down, priming and painting of the kitchen table and chairs. They used to be a forrest green colour, but now they are bright and happy! Anyway, the table and chair adventure is another post… Continue reading An Amigurumi Shelf

Brother slept over a couple of nights so we had some nice, relaxing, just-the-brother-and-the-sister time. Me and Mom went to see Miss Saigon. (It was sooo good. Especially since I have… Continue reading Pile-Up of Updates!
Well, there's no snow storm ... and there's not a complete polar bear yet, but there will be soon! This is the project I've been working on lately. But it's been going reeeeeally slow because I've had a bunch of other things on the go. Now that I've got the body the way I want… Continue reading A Polar Bear in a Snow Storm
I've been smitten with Totoro lately. I've been singing the 'Totoro' song frequently and loudly. I've also put 'Crochet a Totoro' on my mental list of things to do (I even bought the yarn for it the other day - on sale, of course!) But before I could tackle a crocheted Totoro, I had to… Continue reading My Painting Totoro
