uh oh. i found a new project.

…and i haven’t even STARTED with the worms yet!



I pledge not to start this project until:

  1. I have started composting.
  2. I have completed at least one crafting project which I have already started.


urbanB and I will move into our new apartment on Saturday.

Me being currently unemployed, of course, means it is a perfect opportunity for inspiration — via obsession.  I have nothing else to think about other than finding a job.  And that is depressing. So–moving on…

I love Urban Outfitters new Night and Day Sofa, and even though it’s a bit out of our price range, I think we might choose for it to be our splurge item.  I’ve been craving midcentury modern, but vintage sofas are extremely rare and so extremely (for us) expensive.  This UO sofa comes closest to what we (I?) want that is also close to our price range.  Plus it’s also a sofa bed, which will be great when we have guests in our little one-bedroom.

And to make up for the extra cash spent on the sofa, I’m thinking of some D.I.Y. wine crate shelving, which I read about over at Apartment Therapy.

I also love the idea of painting the inside of the crate, or lining it with paper.


Finally, I have no idea what to do with this, but omg, I love this embroidery art by Aquarabbit featured on the Sublime Stitching blog.  Maybe I should do stuff like this…
