April cometh...

Well, it happened. I found a new apartment--in Manhattan, no less! And I'm moving on April 1 (no joke). All I can think about is packing, what to bring, what not to bring, more packing, who is going to buy my futon, and packing. I'm set up with a moving company, have keys to the new place and should be dropping some light stuff off this weekend before the big day.

In April, I look forward to cooking, crafting, making art, setting up my new apartment, enjoying Spring weather and happily dodging the rain on the east side of the island. And I freaking deserve it.

Anyway, I see an empty cardboard box out of the corner of my eye and I MUST GO FILL IT. Hope you all are well and creating fun stuff in my absence.

Upswing?

Apparently, I've gotten worse at updating this. The time between posts seems to have flown by! Jeez, what happened?

What have I been doing with my [crafty] life? Well I'll begin to tell you, starting with the most recent past.

This weekend I was a recluse--a happy one. I felt good on Sunday night as I went to bed, reflecting on the things I had accomplished or furthered along. Just me and my own company, some random TV, music and some text messages received throughout, reminding me of the outside world. This made me smile as I thought, "hoh hoh people, if you only knew what I was workin on!"

Since we all frigging love lists of accomplishments (and inevitable haasome-fashion mini pitfalls in parentheses), this weekend I:

- 85% completed a purse, only because I had to wait for fabric glue to dry. (Of course the glue sort of...made the spot on the felt where the glue was applied somewhat see-through. Maybe I'll glue more felt on top.)

- Cut out fabric for a new apron using with cute vintagey fabric scored from the Repro Depot booth at Renegade.

(Would've sewn more but I need more colors of thread. D'oh.)

- Turned my new Against Me! shirt into a girly fit tee, just taking in the sides a bit.

- Finally fixed a thrift store shirt to fit me, and already wore it today.

- Finished something for a swap. Probably shouldn't mention it here yet...

- Hung a print by The Black Apple, purchased at Renegade.

- Got some house stuff done. Installed new wall-mounted pot rack with some elbow grease and a regular screwdriver. Cleaned the dirtiest half of my bedroom floor and top of bookcases, made dusty by a superintendent mishap and never really thoroughly cleaned until now. Cleaned bathroom. I still have more to do but spurts are good.

Somewhere in there I jogged for a good while. Something tells me that starting to exercise again is helping. Now I have another busy couple of weeks coming up. I hope to accomplish some more stuff somehow, including cleaning the other half of my room & closet, buying more thread and finishing bags and aprons.

Up next (once I recharge my camera batteries), a post about the Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair and the goodies I bought. Tally-ho.

Relief?

Today is the first day that I don't have to worry about my old apartment or roommate, or my replacements. Everyone's signed and moved, and I've handed in my keys and mailed my letter with my new address to my old landlord. I can actually focus on work. And blog.

Today I'm cleaning out my phone of Craigslist contacts. And cleaning out my desk and filing away [putting into a box] the bills from the old apartment; will also get rid of my random notes all over the place from Craigslist/apartment appointments. Should also clean out my purses while I'm in purge mode.

Anyway, hooray! Still deciding how I should format this blog. Hopefully it will turn into a blog of my crafty adventures. With a little of my life thrown in.

Next on my list of things to buy for the new apartment [after oh, say, a futon and TV and table and chairs]: a sewing machine.

I really just felt the need to document today. I'd like to think of it as a new beginning. That's effing corny, huh? Now back to work.
