A Redirect


You know you haven't updated your blog in a while when you check bloglines to see if there's a new post from yourself. OK. It really hasn't gotten that bad.... I have, however, been kind of busy with my new gig and have found that I don't have a lot of time to make stuff for myself. Which, strangely, I don't mind that much, except that it doesn't leave me a whole lot to blog about. So anyway, I'm sending you off to http://www.makingitfun.blogspot.com/ where you'll find two new tutorials from yours truly: burp cloths and splat mats. Enjoy!
p.s. Another thing keeping me busy is that I have to watch Survivor: China because one of my elementary and high school classmates is in it: Jean-Robert. We used to call him Bobby. If I could find my high school yearbook I would post his picture. How often does it happen that I know someone on TV? Like, never. OK, that's not true. Christina Chang used to live down the street from me, and so I watch her when she hosts Globe Trekker. You may touch me now. What, you're not impressed? Who do YOU know on TV, huh, huh?????

My mom went to HS with Connie Chung. That's as close to celebrity encounters as I get.

Can't wait to check out the tutes! Thanks for working at your new gig.

I went to college with one of the geeks on last season's Beauty and the Geek. Yikes. :)

Love the tutorials, the burp rag one will be handy since I think ALL of my friends/family are having babies right now!!

Your opening sentence made me laugh. Thank you for the tutorials, even though my baby-making days are over I frequently need baby gifts for others.

I think your new projects are cute! I love the drawing of the little truck. so sweet.

that must be fun to see someone you know on tv.

keri said...

What cute little projects, I love the idea of a splat! (need the exclamation!) matt! =

Jessica said...

I had a college classmate on the very first survivor. Colleen. She went off to make that awful animal movie with rob schneider (or whatever his name is! - I'm so up to date).

Thanks for the tuts! =)

lera said...

Ooh. Off to look at your projects.

(I don't think I know anyone famous, although my father went to school with the man who wrote "On Golden Pond.")

Krista said...

You are way too cool for me now. I'm so jealous. I did have dinner with JeanClaudeVandamme once though. He's short.

Off to check out the tuts!!!

:D

Hey, so that's what's keeping you busy....I need to make a splat matt. Thanks for the tutorial!

angela said...

I know no one famous. I'm such a loser. sigh.
Anywho. I LOVE what you've made! They look so good and professional- go you! :)

Erin said...

Wow I am truly impressed that you know Jean Robert :o) I went to ballet with Faruza Baulk (okay so she isn't super famous but she was in a few movies).

Can't wait to check out the tutorials, I have a few baby gifts to make.

that made me laugh. I was once in the crowd scene at the baseball game of Major League (the first one). And shook hand/got the autograph/fell in love with Tom Berenger...

oh an my uncle went to highschool with the Italian prime minister (who was and still is a total idiot...)

love the tutorials, the tips for sewing the splat mat are great, I had a really hard time sewing that stuff last time I tried and gave up, I think I'll give it another go.

Melissa said...

Oh no, you used to go to school with THAT guy. I find him super creepy and demanding on the show...which means I hope he isn't like that in real life but still he grosses me out. Sorry.

BTW, I picked up the new mag yesterday and saw the ad with my grandmother's buttons...love it!

Rebecca said...

I love watching Faruza Balk, kind of the way I like watching Parker Posey or Lily Taylor.

I frequently say I know people who know famous people. There are tons of famous people one step removed. But that doesn't entirely count. heh. ah well.

I almost hit Whoopi Goldberg with my car in LA once. And I know one of the models in an ad that always runs in Interweave Knits. :) Pretty weak.

Love the tutorials on making it fun! Oh my, we watch Survivor China, I don't know the names yet so I'll have to watch for Jean-Robert!

Lex from one of the first Surviors (can you tell I don't watch TV) lives in our town. I talked to him once at a craft fair. He likes to make things, like cutting out the printed part on grown up T-shirts and sewing them on kid T-shirts, so they can have cool T-shirts, too. His kids are older now, I think, so this would have been years ago. I think there are many more cool kid Ts now. But, how cool is that to have your dad crafting for you.

Somehow I lost you in my bloglines and just added you back. :)
