Reason for Absence

In addition to just being boring person in general, I have been spending most of my available blogging time reading the blogs of others while ignoring my own. Check out these wonderful blogs that I have been stalking:

She took a famous (?) etching, had it enlarged on canvas with adhesive on the back. Mark and I have decided to copy her when we have a house, but we are going to use one of the invention sketches from Leonardo da Vinci's notebook.

Check out her son's closet doors:

I am ready to move in!
