On My Workbench...

For my wedding, I made flower headpieces for the four flower girls.

(see MORE wedding pics).  They looked so adorable!  So I decided to make a couple more from the leftovers, to put in my Etsy store, bloem.

 New flower headpiece available in bloem soon!

Custom colors and flowers are available upon request.  Just Convo me through my Etsy store!

Well, as I said, I haven't been making much headway with bloem.  However, I did start a Flickr photostream of some of my custom work.

Introducing One Ring Short of a Circus

I created this blog, bloem, to capture my arts, crafts, and adventures in enterpreneurism, but, I've kinda crapped out on all that stuff since um we have waaaay too much going on in our lives right now!  I'll need a place to unload our travel reports, house ventures, animal woes, and baby drama. Our new blog is called One Ring Short of a Circus.  It's about us.  A young couple in suburban San Jose, with a butt-load of animals and a baby on the way. 

Enjoy!  oh, and bloem is still in the works...just a little slower these days.

Oh yeah, I have a blog

Dreadfully sorry to all my devoted followers. I can be not-so-good at keeping up with things, which is why my dirty laundry gets piled so high it blocks out the sun, and why I forgot about my blog for, oh, 4 months or so. 

Well, anyway, do you remember the house we bought?  This one right here?  We moved in this July!'s a LOT of WORK! Here's some pics (more to come):

Tearing out the carpet revealed a hardwood floor!

Taking out the wall

And there it is!

 In the meantime, we hosted a little painting party, (where a handful of our friends came and helped us paint the interior walls), took a trip to the Netherlands to visit Roger's family, oh yeah, and did you notice anything about my belly in the first pic above?  We're PREGNANT!!!  

So much to talk about, but I'll save some for later posts.  Stay tuned for more !
