Yes. I'm still alive. (Thanks for asking.) I've been away. My Army brother was home on leave (before his deployment) so I made the trip, boys-in-tow, to spend some time with my entire family...and brought my sister home with me.
My sister, Deborah--the youngest of my siblings--is living with us now. She's 18--a full 16 years younger than me.
If one of us is hip and cool, it's definately her.
I'll get some photos up tomorrow, but for now, I've collected some links I wanted to share:
First, the gallery of a relatively new pea, who does awesome 8.5x11 work--emma29. from Minnesota. Yummy stuff.
And a site I've been drooling over called French General. Oh my. Check out the ribbon collections and the paper coasters and the cast iron birds (photo above).
And a place I hope to visit in Atlanta next week--Nicholas Kniel. Dreamy.
The Homemade Simplicity Blog...who couldn't use a dose of this kind of positive attitude?
And on the home-front, my honey played a casual little local gig in Franklin tonight with a singer he's admired since his teens. Pretty cool. That's all he'll let me say. Otherwise I would be inclined to spend an inappropriate amount of blog space telling you old funny concert stories and generally gushing. If, on the off chance, you were a teenager in the early 90s and you were into the Christian rock music genre', you might recognize this picture from back-in-the-day:
:) This would be the musical equivalent of me getting to scrap with Brenda Cosgrove and Lindsey Ostrom.
Happy Friday...and congrats Michele, on the new job!
