The power of a picture

Drama Girl is about to have her 18th birthday party.  I thought it would be fun to create a little slideshow of pictures of her to show at the party.  Also, apparently, I want to torture myself with sentimentality.

Here she is cuddling with a teddy bear I had made for her.  You can barely see it in the picture but it's right next to her face.  She named him Rainbow Flowers and he's gone on a lot of adventures with her.

And there they are again, that little girl and her bear.  This picture is killing me.  Credit and thanks to Jeff Bartee Photography.

The Mysterious Halloween Town

I've started another project.  Of course I have.  I'm all about starting more things than I can finish in a lifetime.

I've been seeing lots of pictures on Instagram of this project.  The pattern is by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and is coming out in four parts.  I have the first two and this is most of part 1 complete.  I think I might switch the white moon to yellow.  The beauty of Instagram is seeing how other people have changed the pattern.  It's fun to stitch along with others who are working on the same project.

While I stitch, I've been listening to a great audiobook; The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.  Here's a link to the kindle version:

It's a funny, somewhat dark story of an old man who escapes a nursing home and gets more than he bargains for.  Chapters about his present are interspersed with tales of his life and adventures during the 20th century.  Like Forrst Gump, he meets a lot of famous people and has a hand in changing the course of history.  I laughed out loud a number of times.  Good silly fun.

Everybody is getting ready to go back to school this month.  I used to love August vacations but they're just not possible any more.  I liked the old days when school always started after Labor Day.  Jungle Boy is going to middle college starting next week.  He's still enrolled in high school, but he takes classes instead at the local community college.  Such a great opportunity for him.  He'll be able to transfer all of his credits and possibly shave a year or more off of college.Wasabi Girl goes back to high school the week after that.

Drama Girl and I are all set to fly her out to college.  We spent two painful hours at the sheets and towel store trying to get her to decide on things like a comforter.  No luck.  There were too many choices.  I thought something like pillows would be easier - good grief!  She actually laid down on the floor to test different types.  Then we picked the kind of towel she wanted - but it took her forever to pick the color.  Why was it all so hard?  At least she has a new quilt to start the school year.  If she wants a comforter as well, there is time to ship it to her before it gets cold there.

How adorable is this?  The fifth in the series of free advent animal patterns from Brookes Books Publishing.

I think I'm going to finish each of these into an ornament, and rig up some kind of garland to display them all.  Since the patterns are coming out once a month, I still have plenty of time to figure it out.

And here is my jar of 2014 scraps to date.  It never looks like much, but it's a big wide jar and it represents a lot of stitching hours.  I'm posting this as part of Daffycat's "TUSAL" (totally useless stitchalong).

I've become an instagram addict.  So many wonderful creative photos from all over the world.  Of course this has led me to new projects I want to start.  There are just never enough hours in the day.  You can find me on instagram at 

Drama Girl got her class schedule and textbook list.  It includes this book, "Buffy and the Heroine's Journey: Vampire Slayer as Feminine Chosen One"

She can never accuse me of not adequately preparing her for her higher education.  Also?  I really want to go to college with her.  But I take consolation in the fact that being a grownup means I never have to take calculus again.

I once had 3 kids under the age of 2. Now they're 10 and 11 years old and I'm enjoying their unpredictable preteen years. I play the harp when I have a little free time and my wii fit isn't lecturing me.

I'm writing a blog so that when I'm old and gray(er) I can look back and remember it all. Days fly. Record them!
I have been blogging since...

Goals for 2010

Posted on December 30, 2009 at 10:04am 0 Comments

I'm pretty proud of myself for getting to 340 subscribers. I think one of my goals for 2010 will be to double that number. I need to get savvy about drawing readers in and keeping them. Also planning to increase my Technorati number and followers.

And I plan to do all this without letting my blog take over my life.

New year, new blog look

Posted on December 31, 2008 at 5:12pm 0 Comments

I spent the entire day yesterday updating my template. Of course, now that I know all the little tricks, I could probably do it all in less than an hour.

Hope the new look goes with my writing!

Another good blog day

First, I got rated by They gave my blog an 8.1 which seems pretty good to me!

Tootsie Farklepants commented on my blog! I feel so honored.

My interview went up at 5 minutes for mom.

I made it onto Alltop!

I'm pretty excited that I'm on now. Even if I am at the end of a very long list. It still feels cool.

The first of the month is not a good blog day

Posted on June 1, 2008 at 7:19pm 0 Comments

I got a lot of hits over the last few days, on posts throughout May. People landed on my page, and then (I assume) went to pages that had interesting titles on my May archive. There were a lot of pages to pick from.

Today, not so many page loads per visitor. I think because there is a little naked archive section that says June, and May and April are all tucked away.

Maybe I should put a "popular posts" list?

Does it really matter if people read old pages? In… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

Thanks for checking out Mombshells and for the comment! I love your sense of humor and creativity on Lit and Laundry. Laundry is the bane of my existence--always trying to find a way to get out of basket needs a bumper sticker that says, "Rather be scrubbing toilets."
