Mmmmm... Just MMMMMMmmmmmmmmm.


You will be.

Check out this fabulous recipe for chai tea syrup. I don't know if I love it for the deliciousness and the potential warm spicy smell saturating my home, or if I love it for the way Lucy wrote it.

I think if I get any more inspired, the size of my recipe box is going to become an issue in a very short time. Recipe *binder* may be the way to go.

Presentation truly is everything. Imma have to print this out on really lovely paper and frame it to hang in my kitchen. You know. For easy reference and all that.

You're welcome.

I'm getting bad at blogging. Facebook's short status updates have spoiled me, leaving my deep-thinking and pontificating muscles unused and beginning to atrophy.

Puerto Rico was fabulous, and I swear if something could be done about the heat and humidity, I'd move there in a heartbeat. While I didn't get to meet up with any AntiCrafters, I was somehow outed to my day job teammates (we were there giving a workshop) as being Strange Craft Girl during my off hours. These are stiff, academic types, but they took it reasonably well, in a "we knew you were weird, we just didn't know HOW weird" sort of way.

In crafting news, one of my favorite cross stitchers, Julie Jackson of Subversive Cross Stitch, just did an interview with my new embroidery heartthrob, Jamie Chalmers of Mr. X Stitch, for Craft. My only regret is that there is not more Bee! Go read it now and leave loving comments for both the subject and the author, for they are both faboo and deserve our cookies.

In other crafting news, Shannon Okey (aka Knitgrrl aka the woman who does not ever ever ever stop working) is opening up Knitgrrl Studio in Lakewood, OH (near Cleveland). She of course had her big to-do this Saturday and I completely failed to tell you all ahead of time. (Sorry!) But if you're in the area, check it out! (Knitgrrl Studio website, Knitgrrl Studio FB page)

And for your AntiCrafting pleasure, proof that there might be such a thing as "too much juxtaposition" (and you know how I loves me some juxtaposition!): Hairy Spoon Rest and Toenail Clipping Spoon Rest. (From Craftster via Craftastrope.)

Dear God what is that THING?

Hey Deadlings,

If you've ever wanted an odd conversation piece for your desk, today is your lucky day!

Thing in a Jar

Go on, you know you want to make one.

What to do with plastic bags, and why Helen should be on the frickin' payroll

If we had a payroll, anyway. Here's another fab thing I learned about from Helen. I have to say that I rather hate plarn, but had not had time to think of alternate cool things to do with plastic bags. Luckily, the Lucky Ladybird has been quite industrious in this sector.

And hey, I'm posting during production crunch time! Either I've lost my frickin' mind or things are VERY CLOSE to being ready for the new issue. Or both.

Seriously? I am incompetent with the linking for some reason lately. Materialism link in post below is all fixed now.

By way of apology check out this freaking awesome centipede:

It's the art of Jon Beinart. (From Sage via Craftastrophe.)
