With all of the beautiful hanging textile art I'd been seeing around blogland, I was itching for an excuse to try some out! So when my friend's birthday came along, and knowing she was loving the weaving trend too, well, I jumped at the chance.

Happy Sunday friends! Are you guys list makers? When I go shopping I have to have a list with me, otherwise I'm bound to forget at least one thing I wanted to get. I also like making to-do lists, as they help make me feel more organized (even if the to-do lists are written all hibbly-bibbly in random places), and what really makes me smile is being able to cross off items from the to-do lists, making me feel super productive. The crossing off part is so satisfying. So in the spirit of list-making, here's a little list of some other things that are making me smile lately (in no particular order):

"A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed... It feels an impulsion... this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond the horizons." -Richard Bach
Have a lovely Tuesday my dear friends!

Wow, I can't believe it's Sunday again already! Where are the weeks going?! Anyways, on to the smiles! The picture above contains two things that have been making me smile. One, some of my plants. I'm afraid I may be turning into a crazy plant lady. I currently have 8 plants, an avocado pit I'm trying to grow, and some cilantro that I just bought but whose life span is looking questionable (although it has been pretty tasty). Apparently, plants are like potato chips; you can't have just one. (And with potato chips for me, it's always a case of eating almost the entire bag.) At the store I have to fight the compulsion to buy more by telling myself that I have to make sure I can keep the ones that I do have alive for awhile before thinking about getting more. With a rescue plant and the unluckiest cactus in the world, that may prove to be a little challenging...
