Closet Cleaning and Soft Stuff and Dancing


I’m in the middle of cleaning out my closet today and doing the transition from winterish to springish clothes.  Now, be forewarned.  You should all know that this will alter the pattern of weather that we’ve been having and cause a freak snow storm to hit St. Louis.  Oh, you know, I take that back.  I did leave a wool coat and boots within easy reach and so, since I did that we won’t have any crazy weather…..hopefully?

In the process of the clothes switcheroo, I have discovered that I own 20 skirts.  20.  This isn’t counting winter ones, either.  I couldn’t believe it, y’all.  I just kept hanging them up.  This is what happens if you shop at a store that sells clothing for less than you pay for a gallon of milk.  Needless to say, I’m done buying skirts for now.  Unless I come across a great denim one.  Then…..I’ll have 21.

Two things I want to share today, before I get out of this dusty room and start ironing like crazy:

  • This site, Child’s Own Studio, is incredible.  What the designer does,  y’all, is take kid’s drawings and make the animal/person/creature/whatever into a soft toy.  You know crazy kid drawings — she does those too.  So very creative and wonderful.  She was featured on a couple of blogs and now has enough business for 2 years or something like that.  What a great idea!
  • Y’all are probably familiar with Purl Soho.  The Purl Bee is their project blog and they featured the sweetest, chubbiest bunny on there this week.  It almost makes me wish that I could knit.  And, the bunny is based on an equally (if not a little more, in my opinion) darling owl.  So cute.

Okay, I’m off to iron.  Well, maybe first I’ll do a little Just Dance 3.  We checked it out from the library and I love it so much that I think that I might have to buy it — used of course.  I had forgotten how much I like to dance.  It makes me happy.  It is problematic, though, because I have this little boy, E, and he gets mad because I get four stars every time.  Even after I explained about all the dance that I’ve had and how it would be ridiculous if I didn’t get four stars — he still wasn’t buying it.  So I guess I’ll be doing clandestine dancing for now.  Oh well.

Happy Tuesday, y’all!
