warning this post contains complaining

good morning people!!

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend, and thank you for reading Petite Heights yesterday (oh wait...Sunday).

Sorry for the impromptu blog day off I took yesterday, I am fine (thank you for the emails and such), just needed a day off, life in the public eye is so hard sometimes....blah blah blah whatever, I hope you know I am totally kidding. Truthfully I just took a day off due to laziness and allergies.

yes, I said allergies.

Now, I know....allergies are not really an excuse to not do something, but hear me allergies are horrible at night, so bad that sleeping has become an issue, so....I stay up late with the sneezing and then morning rolls around and I am groggy, and lifeless....also I am sans frappio, I''m out...there is none left, none....and a part of me is dying inside with out it.

(says the sad pathetic frappio addict).

so, where was I...oh yeah, sleepy. So I have been sleepy and unmotivated in the mornings, which has been leading to lazy blogging and no working out.

Also my bones have been hurting a lot lately, especially in my bad leg....aaaggghhh, yes, I am having a little pity party, and it's pathetic, I know.

(did you like that alliteration? pity, party, pathetic...nice)

Which leads me to today...lots of complaining followed by packaging to do etc.

so....though I have been lacing in some ways...I have been wildly inspired in other ways, in fact my new latest obsession is making collages in sets, in fact I spent most of the day yesterday making this piece, that I have shown today...

in fact while restless and hurting last night I almost got up to work, but alas I was too sleepy for work and too sleepy to finish my Nancy Drew (The Bungalow Mystery).

So there you have it...that's what I have been doing.

I am beginning to go into (slight) panic mode, Craftin Outlaws is less than two weeks away, and I am easily overwhelmed with the idea that I don't have nearly enough stuff and the fact that I am petrified that I will not do well. On the plus side though Craftin Outlaws means that a certain NY etsy seller will be our first overnight house guest at the all new and improved Chateau Stiletto.

ok...thank you for reading the senseless (and frappio-less) post, catch you tomorrow.

I know the "no sleep" feeling! (Slightly different reason, however)

Craftin Outlaws sounds great! Have you done it before? I was happy to see they support Rwanda Knits which I think was started by Cari Clement of Bond. I have their knitting machine and get their newsleters.

I did Craftin Outlaws last year, so far it's the only "craft show" I do.

(it helps me be less nervous because it's at a bar)

first of all, Jenn - bad leg? You've got great legs. Seriously. Hubba hubba.


Also, my mother and sister have both asked for your etsy site. They love the stuff I have hanging in my apartment.

sorry about the allergy attack. as a sinus sufferer myself I feel your pain and know all to well about the lack of sleep due to constant sneezing and blowing. Complain away.
I am just as overwelmed about craftin' outlaws. I have so many more dolls to make and so little time.
Can't wait to see you there.
Are you inside or out?

A day without blogging, that's fine and dandy. But a day without caffeine, that's no day at all.

I love that you are collaging in little puzzle-like sets,fabulosity!
I am seriously curious about this frapio stuff,but I don't think the hubs will let me pick-up another expensive diet redbull-type habit,still curious though. About 2 years ago I gave up practically all white flour and MOST white sugar. My health and especially my allergies have never been better! I am not saying that I am entirely Miss Healthy Eater,but my health has been amazing since I have cut out most junk .

I love the collages, JftB. Sorry you're not feeling well; the no caffeine thing is especially troubling. I'm also sorry we didn't get to talk this weekend, but: I've got your number now, so I will call soon.

Allergies always make me tired and out of sorts...then again, so does my age and the amount of walking I've been doing lately. I wonder if I could move a bed down to my shop to read in during the day? That would be bliss!

I love the collage sets!

I would love to meet Kate Black in person. This is completely unrelated to anything, but I am unreasonably thrilled that she switched back to her squid avatar - I was missing it.
