do you have a beard?

maybe like me you where born without the ability to grow a beard. or maybe you have the ability but choose not to have a beard. or maybe you are one of those people who has a fabulously bushy beard! rob has the ability to grow a beard but claims they are itchy and so most of the time shaves before he has one. sometimes i am lucky and he gets busy and doesn’t shave for a while and starts to grow a beard but it is never a fabulously bushy beard but thats ok i found a solution. like me Erin Dollar does not have the ability to grow beards and so she makes them! you can check out her etsy shop here and she also has an amazingly cool blog.

now i am trying to decide if i should buy myself an amazing beard for my birthday and be all diy and make my own unique beard that is one of a kind.

*** and an update about my day****

rob was super busy plus it was raining a lot today and i usually take my photos outside when it is not raining. anyhow i got a few photos but i still need to do more stuff to get my stationary ready to sell but i did do something really amazing today. something really great. i made pants for dmitri! i am a bit hyper with happiness and woth feeling proud of myself. this is my first time really trying to sew anything in about 15 years and this is my first time sewing on a machine with no one to help me and i managed to set up my machine figure out how to use it and make a pair of pants all in about an hour! the pants are not perfect. some of the problems with them are from little mistakes i made or where i rushed and did not do as neat a job as i could have and some of the issues are that the pattern leaves a lot of room for a diaper and dmitri rarly wears diapers and doesn’t need all that room. all in all i am super proud and when he wears the pants they could easily pass for store bought. i feel like i had a really productive day. now to have a relaxing restfull night.

procrastination isn’t all bad

you may have noticed that my valentines are not up on etsy yet. they will be soon. i am a little anxious about writing my description and have been proctrastinating but i have been super productive while procrastinating so it isn’t all bad. i have learned how to crochet. made baba ganoush and baked apples and yams and roasted onions. i did a lot of work learning how to use my new tablet (the drawing kind not the kind that is like a laptop). i practiced violin. i have done alls orts of stuff i have been meaning to do and in my defence of not writing up the description part of the issue is that my internet has been super flaky all day long. i want to go look at what others have done for inspiration and for a while no pages would load. so hopfully i can post this on my blog and read descriptions on etsy and hopfully i can work through my anxiety and by the end of the day my first item will be up for sale and soon after my second item (quail stationary).
