Headaches

  Looks like we may be moving again guys.  GoDaddy is completely shutting down the old blog (having given me a week's notice before hand), and for whatever reason, the content won't transfer here, but it WILL transfer to Wordpress.  I'm currently in the process of attempting to find a template that doesn't make me want to scream over there and getting everything set up.  There are liable to be some broken images and links for a bit, but I'll keep you updated on where everything is going to settle out.  Thanks for the patience!

Edited: Alright, so the new homepage is http://especiallycreativebroad.wordpress.com/
  I don't have the patience to muck around on the computer any more when I could be creating things, so unless there's some other catastrophic meltdown of services, this should be the last move!!

Weekly Portraits- The Third Week of June

  It's always fun watching little kids play.  I mean, sometimes it's also incredibly frustrating, because they're dismantling your furniture and won't stop slapping the cat...but it's always fascinating to see how they re-purpose the items in their lives to make them more suited to play.


  The table my Mr. made has small spaces in the supporting legs that are just perfect for a train or car to drive through.  Both boys take advantage of it, but R is at just the right size where it's one of his favorite places to play.


  I took G outside to play while R slept the other afternoon, and gravel around some pavers became a mountain for his car to climb, and a puddle in a tree root became a lake for his boat.

Gather Ye Garlic Scapes, While Ye May.

  Garlic growers, check your garlic to see if you have scapes yet!  Ours were ready to gather and we got quite the haul.


  If this is your first year growing garlic (and as such, collecting garlic scapes), you can find some recipes here:




  Snip those scapes, saute them up and thank me later.

Edesigns Activewear is Launched!

  The spandex line is officially off the ground as of a few days ago.  I'm still sewing like a mad woman to make sure I keep my inventory up and have a couple of pieces in reserve, but the first few items have sold and hopefully more will go the same way once the next session starts at the gym.



  I'm trying to decide if I want to share finished spandex projects with you guys here.  I know it's kind of a niche market, and it's probably going to be a lot of the same thing over and over again in different fabrics...so probably not.  If it's something you really are interested in though, feel free to hop over to the FB page I've created for the line, I update with a picture every time I create a new piece!

Weekly Portraits- The Second Week of June

  Hoo boy, these kids aren't getting any easier to photograph.  The little one doesn't ever stop moving, so literally every picture I've taken of him this week is blurred.


  G isn't much better.  I caught him during one of his rare television shows though, so he more or less humored me.



  Maybe I need to start wearing roller skates to chase them with the camera?
