My name is Robin. I live to create - anything I can do with my hands and my head. I'm a messy creator - an imperfect creator who loves beauty and aesthetic with a real edge. This isn't a blog about perfection - its a blog about the beauty in real life - the small triumphs and epic failures - trying to get homework done with a tired 5 year old after a 12 hour day and still getting a smidge of weaving in before the crash. Figuring out what the dream is when you finally realize its not the house and the car. Its about not letting the years get the best of you and cherishing all that you love in life. Mostly its just a place for me to put all the things that I love and that inspire me.
Well, I didn't get much sleep because I broke my stupid pinky toe yesterday and it was freakin killing me last night and kept me awake because I was worried about rolling over on it. So I am a little tired. But I took lots of Advil today and it seems to be working better than the Alleve I took yesterday. I made this necklace yesterday which I think turned out pretty cute. Also worked on these roses which will be for Valentine's Day surprises for friends. http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/peruvia_rose/peruvia_rose.html I told you this whole blog will end up being about knitting! I need to get Brian to post some stuff too. He made some insane black bean soup last night that he should post his recipe for.
