So! On that cheery note, what to do but hang out with the kids in my cupcake pajamas, drink coffee, [...]
Look what we made!
OMG it’s SO CUUUUUTE!!!!!!!!
But seriously, here’s how we really feel:
It all started because I wanted a hat like Lain from the anime, Serial Experiments Lain. Here’s the hat in question:
It’s a bear hat. That’s right, I wanted a fucking [...]
Look what I made!
My first pair of socks! Supersoft merino wool, a bit chunky for warm winter footsies. For the knitters in the crowd, I knitted them toe-up, using magic loop, but the real trick was, I knitted them both at the same time. That’s right, both socks on the [...]

You might recall the kids and I got into an anime last month called “Mushishi” about a traveling mushi master named Gingko. Mushi are [...]
I’m back on the sauce. Coffee, that is. Glorious, aromatic, black and tan COFFEE.
I had given it up by accident when I started drinking green smoothies. I would drink the smoothie and just not want any coffee right then (coffee + smoothis = yuck), and then the day would get on and before [...]
Sophie has been making masks.
I love the individually cut feathers on the owl mask! The wolf got a snout that I managed to miss in this photo, but its pretty awesome, all shaped and glued into place. And drat, I couldn’t find the peacock mask, which is truly a shame [...]
It’s probably the Katwise thing (see yesterday’s post), plus Sophie doing a bunch of sewing with her great aunt (who is a master seamstress) (I covet Sophie’s adorable new bag made from too-small favorite jeans with rhinestones and rainbow lining, by the way), plus Luc just got this rocking pair of pirate pajama pants at [...]
Another of Paul’s creations showed up in my inbox this morning…
It’s true! I’m an auror! Tonks and I go way back.
I know some of you won’t be surprised about this, but to the few who are, watch out. I’ll be checking to see if you are naughty or nice. [...]
Ten gorgeous, whimsical, surprising sculptures made out of books and words were given this year to various libraries in Scotland, all anonymously. The beautiful pieces were left in nooks and windows and corners, to be found by librarians sometimes days later. Here are some teaser images….
