I Can Sing a Rainbow

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

Does anyone else remember the kid's song "I Can Sing a Rainbow?" I thought of it yesterday as I was working on my latest series of bracelets. I've made them in six different colors so far - only the red one is listed in our store as of this afternoon but bracelets in orange, blue, green, purple, and black are coming soon. I've posted some photos here as a sneak peek. UPDATE: All posted in our Artfire shop!

Sadly, I can't really sing a rainbow and most people who know me will pay me not to sing. But I do love rainbows and have ever since I was a little girl. I would arrange my markers or crayons in rainbow color order, a habit that continues I continue to this day with all of my crafting supplies. By the way, you can all just keep those anal retentive comments to yourself!

First of May

Thursday, May 1, 2008

I know it's cliche to comment on how quickly time passes, but I'm compelled to do it anyway. How can it be May already? May 1st is one of my friend's birthdays. We don't keep in touch that much anymore but every year on May 1st I think of him - I never forget his birthday because of the James Taylor song "First of May." If you haven't heard it you should check it out, it's a pretty great song, even without the personal connection! I'll have to crank it up on iTunes later in his honor.

I've been feeling a touch cranky lately, a statement my husband will quickly confirm and perhaps feel is an understatement. I figured since today was a new month I could get all wacky and start the month with some positive thoughts. It's a stretch for my sarcastic, pessimistic self but let's give it a go anyway. If pigs start flying later today you'll know who to blame.

So...some happy thoughts:
  • One of my best friends is coming for a spontaneous visit tomorrow.
  • While he's here we're going to plan our summer vacation.
  • A new episode of Lost is on tonight.
  • I'll be in NYC next week and will have some time to go bead shopping.
  • This afternoon I'm going shopping and with my very cool former boss.
  • Thanks to the birthday gift I got from my awesome husband I now have all five seasons of Alias on DVD and can watch Jennifer Garner kick ass anytime I want.
  • Our kitchen renovation is moving along (I'm tempted to say but not as quickly as I would like but that violates the happy though rule).
  • See those pretty pink earrings at the top of the post? I kept them, a fine example of the risks of owning a jewelry business I mentioned previously.
It's time to start my work day - a very happy first of May to you all!
