I am Karan from Olympia, WA.
Almost every other name used here is a
pseodonym pseudonim pseudonymn alias.
The rest of it is true - mostly - and all of it is my own.
Don't even think about taking any of it, unless of course, you want to pay me.

The counter says that 4291281 have been flummelized, but I personally think it's all a big lie.

Two days in a row!
I’m starting a streak here. I’ve been playing around with a couple of “feature” options with my Blog; a counter and maybe a guestbook. Then it occured to me that it’s unlikely that very many folks will ever visit this space, so never mind. I’ll only have to assume grand expectations.
I’m planning to make Christmas presents this year. I figure that my kids will want to help so we’ll make it a summer effort. I always start with the idea that we’ll save some money, but life experience has shown me that it will more than likely cost us 3x as much....oh well.
I think we’ll mosaic some frames for pictures and mirrors. I learned how to mosaic with my friend Barbara at a local paint the plate place. She made a huge frame and I made the ugliest clock you can imagine. I gave it to her for Christmas that year and I think she must have stored it in the garage because I’ve never seen in since then. Anyway, I’ve drummed up enough courage to try again.
I found a really nice place to buy supplies, Mosaic Basics and of course there is always Home Depot. Wish me luck.
The other gifts I’m going to make for the teen girls in our families are some sort of fuzzy scarves. I’ll knit those. I haven’t knitted anything for a million years and I never did get the hang of that cast on-cast off thing, but I’ll give it a go. If I can’t manage it, I’ll crochet. That’s easy. I got the fuzzy scarf idea from a link I followed on not martha’s Blog. Wish me luck here too.
