Roy Kirkham Bone China pitcher and small blue and white egg, bought at the Sugarloaf Craft Festival... Thinking about blue and white Delft tiles inspired me to make embroidered felt pins with Dutch motifs. Now at the shop.

After preparing vegetables for today's cooking, I made a brooch late into the night.

It has been really busy [work + home + travel] in the last couple of months. I am hoping I'd have more time to create fun things, to paint some [picked up some acrylic paint awhile ago], and to organize!
To celebrate summer, we made some homemade ice cream today. I have gifted my young chef, Gem, with Cuisinart Automatic Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker in red for her birthday. She opted for strawberry ice cream and it turned out so delicious! Even though we used slightly less sugar than the manufacturer's mini recipe book recommendation, we could have used lot less. Still yummy!

Of course, this is all good but there are many projects and to dos I want to accomplish along the way as well. I have been meaning to take some time to organize my thoughts and my home to create environment to put some order in my hectic, energized life. So what do I do?
I watched a movie, Twilight, with Mad, keeping up with the sort of "FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE" bonding time. It all began with Casablanca, which apparently was mentioned in one of Gilmore Girls episodes. Mad had to watch it with me and loved it. I enjoy watching movies with her because she loves to make witty and silly comments about the scenes, sets, costume etc. Ever since the movie came out, we had discussions, even though I haven't seen the movie yet. Rob Patterson? What were they thinking? Edward Cullen supposed to be devastatingly beautiful in a very elegant way. What happened here etc. Hm. I must admit I have to take back some negative things I have thought. He does have very nice voice. Many times, a person's voice could either repel or attract despite everything else.
Now, here I am before my laptop, close to 2:00 in the morning, thinking: how to organize, sort, weed, and organize again my thoughts, work, creative projects, and home. Spring is here, finally, and it is a fine time to do all those things. And of course, get the dust bunnies out as well. I am going to give myself about two months to put some order all around me. Sigh. Now to bed. Good night...
