park-18, originally uploaded by Beaty Family Fun. I can’t keep this kid on the ground. Jumping off the picnic table is his new favorite pastime!
So, I’m unofficially counting down. My Heather Ross fabric design class is only a couple weeks away and I’m getting super excited. I really don’t know what to expect, and sadly, I have no real design ideas ready to turn into some awesome fabric. So my plan is to just soak it up. In celebration… Read More
I’ve got an external hard drive where I save all my pictures. It’s about a year old now. It’s half full. For some reason, lately, I can’t pull things off of it. I have a bunch of pictures to put on Flickr, but each time I try to upload them, it fails. I tried to… Read More
Let’s talk about some of the new shows on this summer. Memphis Beat? Anyone watching it? I like it. The pilot made me cry a little, which is always good. No characteristically funny stuff from Jason Lee, but good drama, for sure. And I always love when a show is really part of it’s surroundings… Read More

We’re reading Skippy Jon Jones around here – have you read it? It’s awesome. So in the spirit of Skippito Friskito, let me say, “Holy Guacamole!” There is so much awesome stuff on the web. Here are a few beans from my pinata: Latifah Saafir, co-founder of the LA Modern Quilt Guild, has reinvented her… Read More
Today, I’m dreaming of a farmette. Like the one I love reading about over at Five Green Acres. We had contemplated a move to Texas, but it didn’t work out. That means its time to stop dragging my feet and dig out the garden and get to work. I’m starting from plants this year since… Read More
