3 things moved me today: 1. This article my mom sent me about a Japanese woman who published a best selling book of poetry at 99. Her collection of 42 poems, which include messages such as “Everyone is equally free to dream” and “Don’t try too hard,” has been the most popular book on the closely-watched Oricon charts for the last two weeks and was one of the...

Where's my solstice gift?
This uber crafter mom of the famous sewing blog angry chicken, made her 3 daughters “solstice cloaks” as “solstice gifts”. She writes: “Like little pagan fairies, they immediately put these on when we went out for our Solstice moonlight walk, draping them over their winter coats. So awesome.” …….yes.

New Company Name Idea: My Non Leather Life
non leather gloves, of course…
I had an amazing time in Las Vegas. Me and Tom were babysitting my one year old nephew Tikky while my sister went to a work conference from 8:15- 11:00 usually. Wow it was an intense experience babysitting a small baby all day. When I arrived on the first day, my sister was not yet back from her dinner and Tikky, who was peacefully sleeping, soon awoke. He was so scared of me, and would not stop...

One of my fave childrens books. I definitely related to the characters in this book. I didn’t know Maurice Sendak did the illustrations either.
