Sew Thursdays : Simplicity 1800 Complete!

If you weren’t aware, this is my summer hat. Because pale girls need more than sun screen!  I debated wether I should throw this on my dress form to save me the awkwardness of modeling it. But since my vintage dress form is very much a size six, and I am very much not, IContinue reading “Sew Thursdays : Simplicity 1800 Complete!”

Treat Tuesday : Thai Iced Tea Cupcakes

  *Adapted from here I love me some delicious orange thai iced tea. So much in fact, that I make it quite regularly at home.

Mood Board Mondays : Space Case

After seeing Promethus and reading about Mars One (Which I’m hoping isn’t some elaborate hoax), I’ve been pretty stoked on space. To be honest, I’m always stoked on space. Even though I was dissapointed that NASA was seemingly being outsourced these past few years, I’m hearing more and more about private companies developments into spaceContinue reading “Mood Board Mondays : Space Case”
