So, Nine months is a long time...

And the worlds worst blogger award goes to... Pam Oswald!
Thanks for reading if anyone is still left, lol. So alot has gone on since my last post, including a wonderful family vacation, the first in 6 years. It was amazing,inspiring, relaxing,and the list goes on. So I really didn't do a lot of dye-work. I did do a lot of gardening, yard work, self improvement, and family bonding. I have some things in the works including a tutorial for purchase with tips, tricks, troubleshooting, etc.
I figured the best way to catch everyone up is with a little slide show, of the last 9 months.
Thanks for following, if anyone is still there. of course that would be wonderful if I could figure out how to post it. For now click the pic below to go to the catch up gallery.

Good things come to those who wait

They're heeeeeeeeeere! so like the title says, good things come to those who wait. See pic below, 44 pairs of glorious bamboo socks in 4 different sizes. Beautiful little blank canvas's waiting to become something happy and fun! I have them all washed, and ready to prep.

I also got my camera back from repair, yay cannon. Still no pink Dell, I did get notification that something was messed up with my order and it had to be cancelled and reordered. BUT I am to rest easy in the fact that DELL is expediting my order so it will arrive in time for Christmas. booo.

I am in a picture sharing mood, so the following is the first pic I took with my newly repaired Cannon.

lots of little hooties bagged and ready to roll! So they flew the coop, and should be making some little hands happy.

I also sat down with the boy, and helped him write his Santa letter. This is his first year doing it himsef, he was so proud. He sent it to Santa on a Christmas Card, (nice touch). I wrote everything on a seperate card, and he copiped it in his own hand. It's so fun to watch them as the letters start actually making sense. I see him sounding things out all the time. Looks like my days of spelling S A N T A , C A N D Y, and other such words are over. So here are a few photos of him writing Santa.

Waiting is the name of the game these days...

Waiting for bamboo socks, 45 pairs of them. All heading to be prepped for dyeing, hopefully this Friday. My Twirly Toes are a hit on Hyena cart Bamboo socks + alotta color = True Love. I am also very impatiently waiting for my new pink DELL. It will be so nice to have an F key again, it's dang tough making the blank spot work. I am very excited to move a little speedier around the net, it will give me more time, and hopefully my uploads will go much quicker.

I am guesting at Sweet Retreat tomorrow afternoon, I have up for auction a very colorful, and snugly scarflette, as well as vibrantly dyed bamboo socks. I posted a picture, but am afraid it may not be working. I will get back to that later. Dont forget to check in with Ula She does I have sent loads of swirl her way that she will soon be creating amazing infant items.

okay seriously? Stick a fork in me man. I am done, and nodding off at the keyboard, time for this hermit to turn in. Night

What an awesome breakfast! Happy Sunday

Today I woke up to an amazing turkey breakfast with all the fixins. We had Thanksgiving lunch with Big daddy's family , and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with good friends. We ate, laughed, and laughed some more. The only drawback to not hosting is no leftovers. So the family made a gorgeous dinner/breakfast that I was lucky enough to wake up to. The boy wrote out the place cards himself, grandma and the divas made the penguins, and deviled eggs.

the plate is mine and has turkey, whipped potatoes with cream cheese, half and half, as well as butter. Smothered in turkey gravy made with half and half. (see a theme here?) creamed cucumbers and onions, dressing, deviled eggs, and the adorable olive penguins that I saw on Once upon a plate and showed my kids. So a wonderful way to wake up, and a delicious start to my day/night.

so the holiday season is kicking off with a bang business wise for me, which is good, but I really have to keep on top of things, make lists, and stay organized to prevent frustration, and procrastination. I have been busy dyeing and am looking forward to stocking everything.

I will end this with a few photos of my dyework this last week. I am out of energy, Sundays are my happy. but worthless days.

So...The Pioneer Woman cooks, and the Suburban Hermit Dyes.

My first meaty post here on blogger. I had recently started a meager blog here, but this works a little better with my site and is waaaayyyy pretier.
So this week I have been playing a bit in the kitchen. Those of you who know me can stop laughing at any time. I tried these yummy potatoes that my whole family loves. It was encouraging and inspiring. I have made choc chip cookies twice in one month! It's nuts, and a little bit fun, and Mason just loves cooking with me.
The boy has had a wonderful time this week. He turned six yesterday. We made his cake together, pics to come. Grandpa Ken would surely smile at his namesakes resemblance, and affinity for Birthday week. Last night before he finally wound down to sleep, he told me "mom you rock, this is the most awesome birthday ever! I'm sorry I didn't think it would be cool." It definitely felt good that for a few fleeting moments I still maintain the ability to impress the kids. I know the day will come that I don't, sooner than I want. Just another reminder to be thankful for the time I am allowed to spend with them.
Okay so the suburban hermit does in fact dye. More on that later when the hermit heads to bring home the bacon. Hopefully there will be a lull, and I will be able to share a bit. For now I need to nap before the night shift.

Welcome to the New Indigo Onion Blog!

Originally posted on May 1, 2008:

I started this blog to start offering my crafting tutorials, my first official being, “Scribbles & Giggles” aka: marbleing with shaving cream.

I am all over the map with my crafting. I dabble in a lot, excel in some, and forget about a large amount of things I start. I can be a flake, just ask my husband about the $1000 embroidery machine I just had to have. In a year it has maybe seen 4 hours of use. (can you see my eyes rolling to the back of my head yet?)

So if you are like me, and need instant gratification with your crafting prowess, than stay tuned my first tutorial will be coming soon.

You can find my tutorial for shaving cream dyeing here
