The Jealous Substitute

(I want to thank Rose for guest blogging for me while I’m gone.  When I asked her about it a month ago, she was very hesitant.  “What would I write about?” she asked.  Rose has been a wonderful friend and a constant source of inspiration to me.  She’s a whiz at creating cheap crafts for her kids to do, and I see the ideas she has and think their genius.  I went over to her house one day and she was working on a pair of shorts – which she writes about here – and said to her “See!  That!  That’s awesome.  Write about that!”  So, she put together this post, which I am super excited about.  Thanks, Rose!!)
 
I totally feel  like a substitute teacher filling in for Pixie while she’s at Burning Man and I am incredibly jealous because while she is waking up to stuff like this:

I am waking up to stuff like this:

Need I say more?
At least I have an adorable little monster to keep me company and she is wearing the latest sweater from her Godmommy Pixie. She wasn’t exactly a co-operative model for me but I think she likes it, she would hardly let it lie for me to get a good picture of it & she still has it on hours later. It is a bit big on her which is good because it will be just about perfect for sweater  season….at least theoretically, this is Chicago after all sweater season could be tomorrow.

I’m also a bit distracted by some kitteny cuteness…. Anyone need a kitten?

I have been acquiring quite a bit of vintage lace and crocheted bits from my grandmother who got a lot of it from her grandmother so I’m working on creative ways on using it.

I started with my favorite pair of shorts, adding some cute flirty lace made me love them even more. Then I added some daisies to my jeans in the hopes they would glow at Pixie’s blacklight party…now I kind of want to add some details to all of my jeans.

Hopefully if I’m not too distracted  by cleaning up from the monster or the kitteny cuteness  I’ll have at least one other finished project to show you later this week.
