the princess & the goblin

today i sat on a big blanket in my garden
and read the *princess & the goblin*...
the mourning doves and frogs
were watching me..
i dont know why
because i wasnt
doing anything
very much.

here is a skirt i made out of a 50's corset.
i cut it in half and sewed elastic to the
top so the little straps hang down.

im trying to be proud of myself
no matter if i get everything
i want to do done or not.
i have so much i want
to do.. i feel like im
drowning in it.

stephanie, i wanted to say thank you for your comment, i'm so happy it is readable and has an effect on someone.
wolves are everywhere! they are such a beautiful animal, so powerful with their presence.

this skirt is beautiful! how do you do make such creative things?!
and i know exactly how you feel. i feel there is so much expectation placed upon me it's overwhelming. i want to do so much but there's too much to do.
do what makes you happy :) and if that means reading in the sun then i say do it, x

That skirt is lovely! (You're always making so pretty, wonderful things) I actually began reading the Princess and the Goblin myself just a bit ago. Haven't finished it yet, because I want to be able to read it when my family goes on vacation next week.

I cannot believe that you would even think of making a skirt from a corset. I often feel I am drowning in 'things to do and must do' as well. The frogs may well have been princes waiting to be kissed. xx

Corset skirt, wowsers!! :P
I just ordered your debut album. I need the Dosen dose. :)
I am addicted to your blog also!

And I also feel this way, having to fill the "to do" list. I love putting a cross in front of an item = *done*.
I also love thinking 'oh no, this'll wait'.
kisses on the cheek.
