Do It Your Own D*mn Self!

We went to Do It Your Own D*mn Self ( today. It was great! What a wonderful opportunity to purchase craft supplies from other Chicago crafters. This was the first one and I hope they will do it again and again! I think it was a big hit! Here are my goodies!

Milwaukee and Cedarburg

We went on a roadtrip this past weekend to Milwaukee and historic Cedarburg, WI ( Here are some highlights.

We ate Jason's favorite ice cream from his days living in Milwaukee.

We went to the quilt museum, only to find it closed - during open hours. I wasn't very happy.

Each morning, we went to the public market for breakfast. The baked goods were so yummy.

On Sunday, we found the Paper Boat Boutique ( and bought Handmade Nation ( from the author! It was very exciting! In April, we are going to the screening in Chicago.
We saw a skunk by the side of the road! Stinky!
And, on the way home we stopped at the Mars Cheese Castle. I know, it doesn' t look like much, but you wouldn't believe the people who pull off the highway to see this place! It is really something!
