cozy sundays.

happy sunday everyone! :)

we had a very productive and fun weekend!

dave and i began registering for our wedding which was a lot of fun. (i just have to remember to remove the case of pistachios and leopard print snuggie dave scanned in ...). we also looked at five houses today ... and, well, we learned that pictures online LIE. A LOT. we saw some real winners (being factious there!).

we also learned that each house tells a story. sometimes a tale of woe (seriously - a FIST PRINT in the fridge door?!?) and sometimes a tale from the 60s (matted shag anyone?).

we saw an absolutely georgous house ... but whose bedroom windows looked right over scenic Rt. 57 and whose property was absolutely sandwhiched between like 7 other houses. i wanted to investigate buying it and then like airlifting it elsewhere, but dave didn't think that was really realistic. (what? what does he know??). the last house was a definite possibility ... but we weren't INLOVE and we have a lot of other houses on our list to see.

and so ... we continue ...

in other news, i spent a lot of time making stuff and sketching out some new ideas. i tried out some different techniques and new projects ... and will be taking a few sneak peak pictures as soon as i finish up a couple more things!

i seem work better with a goal (DEADLINE) ... so i gave myself the goal of at the very least, a new shop update on february 1st. i would like to have my new brand up and running at that point but i am still waiting for adobe illustrator (dave ...) so that may have to wait a bit.

so ... february 1st will be a shop update ... and maybe that giveaway i always promise!!! stay tuned!!

i did finally upload the pictures of the ca-ute owl pillow i made for anita as a thank you for my amazing new sewing machine!!

i am INLOVE with my sewing machine guys! its a not-very-expensive brother ... but it's absolutely amazing! sews so smoothly! so much control! i can sew felt with it without it jamming and freaking out! i can sew fast and it doesn't sound like it's going to shake apart my dining room table! can you tell how excited i am about this machine???? its like i have something in my head and i start to sew and ... it looks like what was in my head!!!! ok ... i'll stop ...

(but i really really love it. thank you thank you thank you anita!!!!! oh and thank you bonnie for the power cord and pedal!!! XD )

anyway ... it was really a glorious weekend. :) so relaxing and so productive and so fun. :o) oh and the JETS WON ... so there was that too ... ;o)

onward .......

greetings! :) all the christmas stuff is down and packed away for another year. as much as i LOVE the season, it's always nice to put everything away and get back to normal. and it was nice to know that after all the work we did in the apartment today, i still have ONE MORE DAY OFF!!! :) makes relaxing all the more ... RELAXING! :)

i am THISCLOSE to a new shop name. i am excited but also sad about losing the laizydaisy name. i know for branding purposes and having my own shop/online identity is makes sense (i mean its weird to think, but there are other LAIZYDAISYs out there, spelled different and everything! makes things confusing for a shop and an identity!) ... but it's a little annoying. X_X

and i have so many ideas .... i don't know where to begin. so i am just picking up yarn and starting something. :)

i was excited today because i stopped at the Store to get a phone number ... and there was my new sewing machine waiting for me in the office!! i couldn't wait to get home and try it out! it looks amazing. BUT! there was no power cord or pedal in the box!! i will ask anita thursday if she has it ... and i emailed brother to see if they will sell me one. i was SO disapointed!!! but it kind of forces me to work on yarny things then for the next few days.

ah well.


Friday, January 1, 2010


the last moments of 2009 were spent with friends and family. the first morning of 2010 was spent snuggling with my honey. the first morning of 2010 was also spent getting a fancy new pair of glasses and indulging in a few sales (aeropostale and bath and body works) as well as a white mocha. the first afternoon of 2010 was spent at kyle and jen's watching the winter classic and then playing wii fit. the first evening of 2010 was spent in my cozy apartment with my honey and my kitty, on our comfy couch eating dinner, sipping wine and watching the sugar bowl.

so why am i so cranky?

pms should be illegal on the first day of a new year. :o(


happy 2010 everyone.
