Rainy Saturday

Which is your favorite?

Hand-painted porcelain knobs for the upcoming holiday craft sales! I'll post them to my artfire account, and maybe etsy as well.
I always struggle with pricing my work, any input would be appreciated!

As you have possibly noticed, I have not been updating at the same pace lately. I've had my hands more than full finding a housemate, then getting settled in with our new housemate, then losing said housemate, and now searching for another housemate (and someone to repair the damage)!

But that doesn't mean you dear readers should suffer!! So until I can offer a cohesively written entry, here are some pictures of a silly dog!!
Don't give up on us, regular entries will resume soon!

Roommate Search 2.0

As you know, I found a roommate for November!

But, within the first week her dog had caused so much damage that she evicted herself before I had to.

So now I'm back on the hunt for a new housemate! The room will probably be available earlier than Dec 1, depending on how long the repairs take. I would greatly appreciate if you could all pass this on to anyone you know who might be looking for a place. Thanks!!

Here's the craigslist post to pass along:

Available Dec 1 - $625/month + security deposit

The Deal: Room to rent in my 2br condo, 12'9x10'. Off-street parking, dishwasher, laundry. Heat included. Two blocks from the waterfront, just a few blocks from the bottom of Church St. Room can be furnished or not.

Me: Mid 20s professional woman, no smoking/drugs, occasional drinker. Mellow 2yr old male dog (catahoula/lab mix). Clean but not a neat freak. Skier, craftster, feminist, environmentalist.

Tough Stuff

"Mom...can we talk?"
"That girl and her food lady are still here."

So, Roger and I have a new housemate! Actually, two housemates - Heidi and her lovely little boxer, Roxy!

Roger's still adjusting to the news that he has to share his space. Plus, the stuff I had to move out of the second bedroom is still all over our bedroom and living room. It makes it hard for a guy like Roger to do his thing. "His thing" consists mainly of napping, and following me.

(A casualty of the move - I dropped my favorite mug. But Roger sat with me and headbonked me til I felt better.)
