Just Pretend You had a Good Night's Sleep!

Today I found myself on Barbara Brabec's website after putting her great book "the crafts business answer book" down for a minute and I really dig all the fabulous and down to earth advice she has on her website!
I am guilty of being a creative insomniac.  Actually when I start sleeping full nights of sleep, I worry about my spark not returning.  I try to just allow my mind / body whatever sleep it needs or doesn't need!
Read Why Creative People are Sleep-Deprived--and What to Do About It along with other useful articles for crafty biz types!
Enjoy the day!

Book Binding 101 - Making my own books.

No I don't yet.... but I've been seriously entertaining the thought and have a few green ideas floating around in my head. When I save up the $$ to buy all the essentials, I expect the experience to be nothing less than this!!

So here's another video that will inspire me to make a bit of an easier book. In case I want to crawl before I walk :) My son would dig having something like this to make a story in.

Mouth Yoga

I am trying to smile more. Really, even aside from reading it in "MOMfulness" by Denise Roy, I KNOW it needs to happen more. I catch glimpses of me in the mirror with my all too serious look that I often carry. What am I - trying to not get wrinkles?? Haha.

So I am trying to smile more about the little things - not just wait until something humorous hits me... because even then, it's more likely to be a smirky grin than a real smile.

I'm definitely a smirker (and in my genetics, a Smurker) with a dominance for my face to have the smirk more or only on the left side of my face.... are there any face readers here? I'm sure that means something like if your mouth has left side tendencies, you are most likely to be a self centered bitch who has incredible passions for recycling, dark chocolate and India food.

It sounds believeable.

Cheap Ass Valentine

Should be noted for all you poor fuckers out there, that back rubs, compliments and sweet kisses are free and are graciously received on Valentines and every other common day.

For crying out loud - Spread the love!!
