Last weekend I had a really nice time visiting my family. We hung out, watched some West Wing (I am proudly responsible for getting them hooked on this show), and made some sushi. The highlight for me, though, was a delightful gift that I received from a young and talented crafter that my Mom knows.… Continue reading A Very Special Pikachu
This is the song I sang as soon as I woke up today: "This is Halloween. This is Halloween. Halloween, Halloween. Halloween, Halloween!" That's from the "Nightmare Before Christmas" movie. And yes, I have the soundtrack. And yes, I am blaring it tonight when children show up at our door Trick-or-Treating. I'm so excited! We've… Continue reading This Is Halloween!!

So, I just loved the movie How to Train Your Dragon. I loved it so much, I had to see it twice. As soon as I saw it, though, I thought two things: 1) Toothless the dragon looks and acts EXACTLY like my cat, Boo. E.x.a.c.t.l.y. 2) I must crochet a Toothless. I have actually… Continue reading How to Crochet your Dragon
I admit, I am a latecomer to the Totoro-love party. Having just seen Toy Story 3 on Friday (a must see movie), I was intrigued by one of Bonnie's toys - it was Totoro! (Aside: it turns out that Totoro ended up in the movie because John Lasseter is a huge Totoro fan!) I knew… Continue reading To-to-ro, Totoro!
