The New Year

Let it spin, let it spin, let it spin!

Straight Jacket

Ruby has autism, we've decided.  A 3T sweatshirt is his version of Temple Grandin's "Squeeze Machine":
He is totally calm when he wears it.  No nipping or pacing.  Chill.

Charles LeDray

From Fiber Arts, Winter 2010/2011
The scale of LeDray's works (1:5) compels me - the woman standing over the clothes racks exemplifies my ego.  Why do I tower over all of creation?  Who am I to NOT drive on vegetable oil?  How I pick and choose what I want from the world.  I want to be small again.  I want to fit into the world - to move within it.  I am removed.

I Can't Stand It!

 Maddy is over, too.  It's a full house tonight.

What do you think?

I am going to their next get-together on December 14 - let's all go!
Here's the text on the event from the site:

D.I.Y. Events

Tuesday, December 14 at Sunergos on Woodlawn in Beechmont.  This is the one off of Southern Parkway, not the one in Germantown.  We will be doing our handmade ornament exchange this night.  Just bring an ornament that you made wrapped up and we will exchange them.  Not into making an ornament, then just join us for some crafty time or chatty time. 6-9pm.

Barbie Reads!

I found Barbie this afternoon stuffed into the bookshelves.
Naked, of course.
Every girl needs a little enrichment now and then.
