1) My brief absence from this blog lately is due in part to this. Okay, no, not this mountain specifically, but I had another brief stint in Canada to help route out an upcoming scenic classic car trip in April…so dang excited for this! (And brace yourself now for all the pics I’m going to take for it, OH MAN)

2) Since December, I have been organizing like a crazy person. I couldn’t take working or crafting on my coffee table for one more minute (and having most of my scrapbook supplies stuffed in plastic bins underneath said table), so a major purge of supplies and furniture was in order. One side of my living room is finally turning into a craft/work space and I can’t wait till it’s all finished! So much better having my supplies out and accessible. And being able to sit in an actual chair for once.

And yes, I am one of those psycho people that consider organizing to be a “leisure” activity ;)

3) My latest read pick is Astor Place Vintage by Stephanie Lehmann – I’m only a few chapters in, so can’t speak for the whole thing yet, but I’m enjoying it so far. Vintage store owner in New York finds (well, steals actually) an old journal from a girl living in NYC at the turn of the century…I’m such a sucker for anything set in the early 1900’s.

4) The boy and I recently attended the vinyl album release show for Benjamin Verdoes at The Triple Door…loved this show, and you can listen to Evil Eye here. (“Unknown Fears” is my favorite!)

    I love the pictures you take. I only have a digital Samsung and am trying to get the lighting just right which is proving to be tricky. Which camera do you use?

      Aw, thank you Gina! My pics are all done with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i (24-70mm lens) or my iPhone 4.

      I took a course at a local photo school on how to use my DSLR and it helped immensely with getting my lighting right since I’m not that great at editing pics. Seattle isn’t the sunniest place around, so it takes a little more work!

    I love your photos as well. They look like professional stock photos. Great storage for the roller stamps. I may incorporate this into my scraproom re-org.

      Thank you Fawn, I’ve been steadily working on getting better photos, so that’s nice to hear :D

      If you’ve got one near you, I highly recommend stalking a Value Village or Goodwill, I’ve found several cheap storage items that way! (The above wooden bowl being one of them)

    Yay for new craft spaces! I recently got a larger space and it will give you plenty of new found inspiration.
