I’m that girl. You know her (maybe pretty personally). The one that bites off more than she can chew and never really learns a lesson from it. Its kind of  like a curse, but a little bit more on the side of awesome rather than creepy.

I love having a million things going on and I love having that many and more ideas spinning in my head at any given time. What I don’t love is that there are not a million hours in the day to match.

And yes, this is “the dog ate my homework” version of my bloggy absenteeism.

So, what exactly is consuming the measly 24 hours in each of my days? Well, there is, in order of importance, the hubs and the almost two year old, other family stuff, sleep (I know most of you don’t believe I count sleep as important — more on that soon), the pays the bills work, some other projects I’m helping out on, and then, when I have time, the big basement sewing room and den makeover. Thats where my used to be sewing and crafting and blogging time has gone. Oh yes and some of it went to the sleep category. I’m hoping to get some of it back soon;  in the meantime here is a peak at my mood board for the basement… xo!


Midweek Muse: Pinterest

Have you been there yet? Hurry up! Go request an invite!

I love my iPhoto and Google Reader for storing and tagging inspiration but Pinterest is my new front runner for organizing those internet snips. Not only can I be inspired by other people’s pins but mine get posted with all of the back up information I may need at a later date. Love it.

This midweek update is short because I’m fighting the baddest,meanest cold I’ve ever met (thank you daycare) and also agonizing over the fact that I’ve been feeling too cruddy to wrap up the last few details of my final Project Toddler Runway looks. Nothing like a deadline to move healing along. I’ve still got a sailor pants tutorial coming your way and a tie-waist short tutorial not far behind it.

Hope you’re having a great week!

I LOVE the top of this dress!

Oh the difference a trim makes.

I think I just got the urge to sew up a few headbands...

Who can't pass up a good Nautical accessory -- this girl.

And there is more (and more and more and more) waiting for you over at BHLDN.

Incidentally, I want to have another wedding (to my same husband) or just a really big fancy party (with my same friends + Nate Berkus and Oprah). Or just a million dollars so I can justify wearing one of these fancies for no reason at all. Point is – go get your mid week pick me up at this new site with anthro roots – and maybe you’ll be sewing headbands faster than you can say gypsy too. Anybody with me?
