I think Banjo and I are fighting. You might wonder how I could be mad at this precious, crazy specimen of a dog with floppy ears and an eager tongue…. Well, I’ll tell you why. One day last week, Little B busted into the craft room, went straight over to my carpet, and decided to throw up aaaaaaall over it. Just like that. Like it was a great new present that she couldn’t wait to share. We cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, but I think the carpet is doomed for the dumpster. It is decidedly Not Good in the craft room right now.
I also think we’re spoiling B too much and she’s getting less disciplined. We need to channel our inner Cesar Milans over the next little while and get her back into shape.
Despite the current room situation, I managed to whip up a custom Macbook cover for a friend (hi Tom!) who has a wife that loves him (hi Julz!) and wanted to give it to him for Father’s day. I forgot to photograph it before I released it into the wild, but it contained the following components: Man colors, an appliqued street sign, and monkeys (they were on the inside). It was really a first attempt at designing for a guy. When you take the pretty flowery fabrics out of the picture, it’s not so easy, but it’s a start.
Oh! And I found a “door” for my closet. It was briefly our shower curtain, but I repurposed it when I realized that my closet door fantasy was not going to pan out anytime soon (sad news). I found it on sale at Anthropologie, and it’s one of my favorite Marimekko prints (happy news!):
What are your favorite fabrics for designing for guys? Oh, and another question. How do I get out the folds/creases from this shower curtain? I’ve washed multiple times to no avail… scared to put an iron anywhere near it, since it’s 100% polyester. Ideas?
I’m off to watch the elimination show of So You Think You Can Dance. I adore this show. You should watch it if you don’t already.Posted by robyn on June 18th, 2009 under banjo, random
