Rain by Shel Silverstein

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

Featured Etsy Blogger: Stormy Designs

Congratulations to Stormy on being the first Etsy Blogger to be featured! What an accomplishment! I find it very evident that she puts a great deal of effort into everything she does. She has great tutorials on her blog and her Polymer clay art crafts are some of the best i've seen. Thank you Stormy Designs for putting so much of yourself in what you do.
I'm having a lot of fun with Etsy. I really enjoy the atmosphere, and like having an outlet for my crafts. Moonchild's Necklace is my newest creation.

The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wind;
The snail's on the thorn:
God's in his heaven -
All's right with the world
~Robert Browning

I had a lot of fun creating this necklace. I like how multistrand necklaces look, lay and feel around my neck, so I thought I would share the grooviness with you.
The shortest "strand" is close to 17". I've used an antique button for the clasp.

I have had so much fun the past couple of days. I've been hanging out by myself enjoying the quite and checking out others' blogs. I have learned that I not a very good blogger. I don't do it enough, and I tend to think about what I am posting a little too much. I guess I'm hesitant. I would love to share some of the book I am trying to write, but am afraid of the internet thieves. hmm. Am I only totally paranoid? Maybe I should get to my book and stop wondering about this...

My sister is getting married on saturday, so my other sister and I were throwing her a bachellorette party. I can remember a few times where I was doubled over because I was laughing so hard.

My other sister and I dressed up in kimonos after we had just went to a shushi restaurant (Koto Buki - all time favorite so far!). The kimonos were hilarious. They were rented from Kentucky which I found to be even funnier when I thought about it. (I have a great respect for the Japanese Tradition Dancing, but you have to admit that kimono costumes are hilarious when combined with a bad lipstick job and black bun wigs!)

we were going to do origami, but i forgot to bring the paper, so we did our own humble pedicures at 4 in the morning instead.

Here are two interesting clips of some tradiditonal Japanese dancing:
