Playing Catch Up...


I realize I've been neglecting my poor blog...my only excuse is "overwhelmingness". Yes, it's a new word and the definition is:

overwhelmingness: n. the feeling of life having been completely flipped over on its head and being overcome by a need to hide under the covers with a bowl of ice cream and wait it out.

No, really, it isn't that bad...just a little stressful with all the changes here at my house. But, moving beyond my pity party...

I am getting ready for an awesome show in Syracuse, NY, called Salt City Urban Art & Craft Market. It's scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2009 from 10-6pm. Here's a link for more info: http://www.saltcitycraftmart.com


Remember my last challenge? It was the Children's Book Challenge. Well, the winning book was titled "Half Magic" written by Edward Eager. It's a great book but it's leaving me stumped for a scent! Now, I like to think I have this gift and that I can read any book and just know what it should smell like. Perhaps children's books work a little differently. They aren't always filled with those subtle nuances of "scent" the way adult literature is. So, if any of you have read the book, send me your suggestions. I'm eager to work on this one and I'm sure the winner of the challenge would appreciate getting her soap!

I'll be posting a new challenge soon!
