or not... is that show ever going to be on again?! what is the deal???

Tuesday, January 18, 2011


Ok, so there is a show about my city. I have to love it because it's on t.v. and it's about my hometown! I've gotta represent! So this show makes fun of my town, a lot. But I met the star of the show, she seemed pretty nice, a little sassy and had the "I know, I know, I'm famous." kind of attitude, but who wouldn't, I mean, she is famous after all... I was slightly star stuck. shame.

So this show, like I said, makes fun of my town. They say we may or may not have real live feminists, and we may or may not care where our food comes from and we may or may not have fun games to play in pubic places... My feelings aren't hurt though, because they haven't made a show about any other great cities lately. And it would be way worse if the show was reality t.v. At least Portland is being made fun of in a silly and creative way, not in taking crazy stupid people and following them around with a camera. They save those classy shows for cities like LA and NY... cities that are also acronyms I guess.

When I'm sick I get bored, so I've decided to be proactive.

Currently reading:

I never read... so this is kind of a big deal.

My mind is blown.

If Only

If only I could be a master seamstress... then I could make wedding dresses and charge up the yin-yang...

Some favorites.

I have this corner. It's were the washer and dryer are located in my home. It is also, due to the lack of storage space, the place where my rapidly growing collection of sewing stuff is kept. This week I've been trying to organize. Oh man. It is quite a task! So, in this corner I have a window. And I really want some curtains up so I like my corner a little more. If you like your laundry room, you like doing laundry. Right? Maybe... That's what I like to think anyway. I got my inspiration from this blog. This woman is amazing. I want to be her best friend... or I want her to come make my home look amazing!
With all this being said, my favorite fabrics to make my curtains out of are...
Because it's pretty
Because it is so fun!
Because it is classy and fun
Because its nice... and only 6 dollars a yard.

Unfortunately I'm flat broke right now and will not be getting any of these any time soon. But it's fun to look! I'm concerned that a small space with large printed fabric will make it look even smaller... but thats the only kind of fabric I can like right now. I guess this being broke thing will give me plenty of time to find the fabric for me. Let's be optimistic here.
