It has been pouring buckets of rain for two days.  The power was out for hours.  I should have gone grocery shopping on Monday (for things like milk and bread) and I still haven’t gone, which I am blaming on the rain.  Last night when the power went out I was cleaning things up in my crafty room.  And after I got off the stool in the closet in the pitch blackness, I found some flashlights, and went back to organizing and cleaning up my room.

We’ve had some amazing lightening, the largest drops I’ve seen in a decade and even some dime sized hail.  I love to make stuff during rainstorms.  Or clean things (hence me standing on a stool in the closet when the power went out…) Yesterday I decided to make something rainy.

[ An art journal page from the online class I took this spring from RVA, see all my pages here. ]

It wasn’t this.  I made this page back in April.  But do you see that little pile of paper raindrops up in the right corner?  I used those up today.  The paper raindrops combined with a little dark gray thread and some chrome spray paint make me happy.  Only I can’t take a picture of it right now.  So you’ll just have to believe when I say it’s awesome.  I hope to get a picture sometime this afternoon, but it might not be until tomorrow.

What else am I doing in the rain?  Baking pie.  Delicious Pie.  Again, which I can’t take a picture of.  Happy Friday, I hope the rest of the weekend is filled with lightening and thunder and beautiful beautiful rainstorms.

    Do storms knock out your camera too?

    ….oh. It’s probably just too dark to see anything in the pics. This girl right here? She’s a smart one. Cross my heart and kiss my elbow.

    hi there!
    I absolutely adore your website and all of your flickr pictures. You are such an inspiration and I feel like I want to talk to you with a cup of hot chocolate and a cupcake and discuss crafts and your organised closet!
    I am 18 and have recently got myself into crafts like knitting, making little padded christmas decorations out of felt and various bits and bobs and really want to start making my own clothes and accessories.
    Your cupboard is a dream come true, I cannot explain how much I love it! And the way you organise everything is beautiful.
    Could I ask where you got the sketch book used above? I love the size of it and especially the large ring binder at the side.

    Please email me back!
    So pleased I found your website,

    La x
