well, i was planning for christmas 2007 (aka "the christmas of extreme poverty") to be the christmas of unfinished craft projects (i.e. finishing them and giving them as gifts), but a combination of thing - the unexpected moving, packing, unpacking, being unable to find things, mostly - meant that didn't happen. at least i have the sewing table put together! although at the moment it is just a repository for laundry waiting to be folded.
also, i am back at work, and that + babysitter pick-ups takes up a lot of time (no surprise there).
all of this blather to say there are no new crafts, and no new news, except for this irrelevant item: a year ago, i posted on my long-abandoned vox blog about a weird thing i saw at the florist. well, i randomly discovered what it is! it's a member of the nightshade family.
