Heart Felt Food

I'm a sucker for detail. When I stumbled upon the felted goodies at Creation By M's etsy shop, I couldn't believe my eyes (I thought something like"eyes, are you for real?"). An-y-ways. If you're not totally swayed by the details on the sliced bananas, the sesame seeds on the hamburger bun, or the fact that the avocado splits open (revealing its seed), then maybe something else in the shop will fit your fancy (felted fried chicken, donuts, or sushi). I suggest you take a peek at the shop and see how you feel (or should I say "felt"). Please report back with your favorite.

twenty seven candles on the cake

(Emily age 1- May 15th, 1986)
To think, this picture was only taken  twenty six years ago. Twenty six was an incredible year (our wedding, travels, foreign guests, French lessons, crafts, Delicate Doilies, good and bad jokes, new and old friendships,family, new favorite songs, and oh so much love). Thanks to everyone who's been involved in any part of the past twenty six years, here's to twenty seven!

Yo DJ Pump This Party

See that chambray sailor above? One might say "Emily, what type of of odd dance move are you doing this time?" One might also say "what type of DJ revolution are starting?" (the second "one" is probably you, but most likely me...). It all started with a birthday party at the record room, a "b.y.o.r"(bring your own records...or rags, or whatever) type of party. Bring my own records I did... I dibbled and I dabbled, and I played the hits from The Meters, to Nu Shooz. DJ Snacks (yes DJ snacks, like all the good stuff you ever loved and more, in the form of a woman DJ) taught me the ropes, and she taught me well. Whelp, let's just say there's a new DJ in town (to add to the long list) coming to your new (or old) favorite _____ (enter favorite here) soon.  Tell me world, which of the following names frosts your cake (by "frost your cake" I mean, makes you the happiest you've ever been...)?
a. DJ Big Booty Judy
b. DJ Val Kilmer
c. DJ Doogie Howser 
d. this is a terrible idea.

Meet Terry Harris

For some time now Alex has been fond of the name Terry for an animal (perhaps the hilarity factor?). Me, I'm more particular about classic names (Cleo, Ruby, or Isidore) either that or wacky names (Chaka Kahn, Hootenanny, or Batoomba).  Anyways, we are proud new gold fish owners, meet Terry Harris everyone (thank you Bryan D.).

Bedazzled Bits From A Frazzled Mind

a. A sneak still of a shimmering gold gif Alex is working on.
b. Spray paint doing what it does best... dazzling ponies in the sun.
c. Photo via Shola, birthday wear suggestions (thank you).
It just so happens that over the last two months I have been working an average of 7 days a week. I guess you could say "it's been a hard two months, and I've been working like a dog..." (In the tune of The Beatles of course). Now  before you start shouting things like "LABOR LAWS..." don't worry, the hours pan out to normal-ish, it's the lack of stopping that is making me a little Coo coo ka choo (agin in the tune of the Beatles, naturally ). An-y-ways, here's my bedazzled bits for the week. What glitz and glam are you wearing these days? I would love to show you off next tuesday!
