chuck norris and a dehumidifier

so i'm trying my hand at fabric stamping. you are looking at the back of a future zipper pouch! i'll be sure to take photographs of the finished product.

hopefully i'll have some fun blog posts coming soon. things at work are getting busy and it's making nap time a priority after work. i feel out of it in internet land. but i will definitely try!

p.s. like the GIANT dehumidifier?? it's too heavy to arm hurts from some falls in derby tuesday night. can't lift it above my shoulder! lame.

p.p.s. see chuck norris on my shirt? it's the math department shirt :) the message on the back is kinda funny. [at least i think so!]

so this weekend, for some reason, i wanted to clean. daniel stared at me...with his jaw hanging.
the front room was deep cleaned. even smells different! some of the furniture was rearranged as well.
not a big deal, but i thought i'd share :)
oh hi sam! he is like daniel, they don't like making blog appearances too often :)
i just like this wall :)

 i had an empty wall in the bedroom...only thing on it was a pretty yellow frame :) not so lonely anymore [these two pieces were in the front room].

if you're at all curious about my home, i did some home tours a few months back.

hope you don't have a case of the mondays!
  UGH allergies!

busy busy!
i'm not sure what to expect at renegade handmade in may. i have been making small batches at a time...but i hope to have enough items so i don't worry about running low [fingers crossed!].
A couple foxes are available in my shop and hopefully i will have some new zipper pouches soon :)

p.s. while editing my flickr account i stumbled upon these gems
anyone else's dog obsessed w/ the squeaker?

what i wore to work: attack of the 50' woman edition :)

i bought a couple pairs of shoes last week. i'd like to thank Carrie Bradshaw and Keiko Lynn for motivating me to strive for that extra height :)
it's a long way down today!
i sure hope i didn't get poo on my shoe :)
a friend of mine dared me to run in my shoes, and i DID.
short folks just gotta know how to work the heels <3

and maybe i was peeing my pants in that last photo ;)

unloading :)

i love my canon rebel xt. but i usually carry around a canon elph. with this little camera, i capture a lot of things that jump out at me - like brightly colored walls, cute pups, and random events.
 i really like tagging along with daniel when he goes to the comic book store.
[ even if sometimes i complain about it :) ]
photographing blinking pups :)
 cute dog toys that satisfy my obsessions :)
 ye olde scrunch face!
 discovering houston fun
 introducing folks to houston fun
[and feisty merch! ;)]
 derby and wheel shaped bruises :)
 my mom and her super amazing cooking skillzzz
finding pups with tags and walking them home :)

pretty hair in austin, tx ;)

my friend karla does hair in austin, tx :)
i love her because she makes me proud of my volume. after an awesome cut she makes my hair big and pretty [usually i can only do flat and frizzy!].
here are a couple photos from my last cut with karla :)
[before bangs]

recently she put feathers in my hair. and i looooove it!
they're supposed to stay in for over a month.
i can wash them...straighten them...whatever :)

i wonder which colors i should get next??

if you live in the austin area hit up Sirens Salon...and ask for Karla!

FOUR years ago - me...singing

okay, so lately i have been LONGING to exercise my voice again....
in an earlier post i mentioned that i used to be vocally trained.
this video is NOT an example of vocal training. BUT i wasn't as out of shape as i am now. blargh.
anyways, here i am...4 years ago...fresh outta at home again...singing up a storm.
p.s. this was around the time covers were really blowin' up on youtube. haha
p.p.s. buster was still small enough for me to carry her! ha!
p.p.p.s. what's up w/ that painting thing of a nudey girl??
p.p.p.p.s. i am only sharing this with you because i have had a couple glasses of wine. :-O

slightly embarassing and all sorts of goofy :)

i contributed to mygirlthursday
 "in bloom" blog party :)
it's mostly video based...
the hair tutorial is pretty basic. the intro to my video is fun...and kind of embarrassing. hahaha
