weekend + valentine's day

Happy Monday. Sorry I've been m.i.a. lately. Ck and I did some serious spring cleaning this weekend. The weather was great, so we had all the windows open and spent the day scrubbing the apt. from top to bottom. It feels so good to know everything is clean. We also decided it was a good idea to do a thorough cleaning before we paint (!!!) so that things can be as tidy as possible for the process. I'm not sure when we're going to tackle painting... our landlord is supposed to get us the paint, so hopefully soon! I did a little bit of craft experimenting on Sunday morning. I tried out my new watercolors and did some doodling with my Stabilo pens. I also did a little bit of sewing, trying to make a pattern for a cute little stuffed bird. The bird came out kind of crazy looking, mainly because I had to use my seam-ripper like 10 times, so there was a lot of fraying, and re-stitiching. It was a good learning experience, though, and I'm excited to try again.

I officially got a commission on Etsy, which I'm really excited about. I'm doing a custom design for a woman who is putting together a wine-themed gift basket. I will post pictures (hopefully later today) when I finish the cards.

Ck and I had a lazy Valentine's day. We didn't do presents, but had intended to work on a craft together. We ended up making amazing nachos and watching Spinal Tap with a couple of friends. They left on the early side, and we somehow ended up reading old emails and conversations that ck has saved on her computer, including the first email I ever sent to her. It was fun to see how awkwardly in love we were, even before we realized it... <3 i love my ck.

Anyway, that was my weekend. School vacation is this week, so I'm hoping to get lots accomplished, with lots of posts!
