day of firsts
First, I got in the mail a package from my very first swap (Open Yours Too 04). I am a virgin swap no longer. Hooray! Thanks so much Eireann, I loved all my goodies! I just realized my pics don't do justice to the beautiful pieces of Japanese fabric that I got. The center stage is taken by those lovely vintage quilt patches. And look at all my other goodies, ribbon (it looks very boy like... maybe I can embellish some of Tino's jeans with it) and the vintage golden buttons and the colorful embroidery floss. Yes, yes, I'm one happy swapper =).
You can see what I sent her here (at the bottom) and here (if you want a close up). And I am soooo happy that she enjoyed her package!!!!
Second first: my very first meme. I just got tagged by Carolyn, ready?, set?, go:
1. Five Minutes to yourself how would you spend them, ideally?
In front of the computer sipping a nice cup of coffee and a eating some chocolate looking (peacefully)at my favorite blogs without being interrupted by a little hand tugging at my shirt or my elbow or biting my side (yes, it's happened before) to get me away from the computer.
2. Five bucks to spend it right now, how would you spend it?
five bucks...mmmh...everything that pops to mind would be more than five bucks. Right now, since is so quiet around here, I'm going to go for a cup of coffee and a nice warm freshly baked scone to enjoy my five minutes above.
3. Five items in your house you can part with, right now that you hadn't thought of already?
This one is a tough one, now that we are about to move I become less attached to things because the thought of taking too much stuff with us is very stressful.
*a ceramic fondue set that we never use
*a bunch of old New Yorkers and Artforums (ok, the Artforums hurt a little bit)
*some of Tino's baby toys that are completely messed up and have parts missing
*a bunch of negatives and prints from my first projects in college
*a gazillion copies of my graduate thesis that are rolling around the house
4. Five items you could absolutely never part with in your house?
*all family pictures (Alex's, mine, our dogs, our wedding and Tino's)
*all my art books (just because I'm nice I'll include here all of Alex's design books)
*my engagement ring that Alex designed. (Does this count? Is more of a personal item)
*Tino's newborn clothes (a onsie and an itty bitty pair of socks)
*all of my Paul Frank stuff
5. Five words you love
You do know that english is my second language, right? So there are some words I enjoy not really because of what they mean but more because how they sound. So, here they are:
*stagnant (I find it very sophisticated)
*layout (I can't think of a word in spanish that is this versatile)
My turn to tag, right?
Didine, Holly and Liz
I'm off to Chicago for the weekend. It's already 1am and I'm going to pay for it dearly tomorrow when I won't be able to fall asleep during the 5 hour drive because I have to keep Tino and Alex entertained. See you all on monday, have a great weekend!
