You Can Be Domestic Too

So I had a wonderful Christmas, and got a lot of great gifts (all very useful and domestic as my sister called them). I'm the proud owner of a new sewing machine...and today I even managed to use it AND keep my I-hate-not-knowing-how-to-use-things temper down enough that I didn't throw it through the window. I did however imagine throwing it through a window and gained quite a bit of satisfaction from that. I'm psyched about it though and am looking forward to making more pillowcases, curtains, and cute purses than my apartment can hold (and maybe someday I'll branch out and make some pajama pants...we'll see ;) ) Oh, and just think of how I can dominate craft challenges when I don't have to sew everything by hand! ;)

I also got lots of cooking related gifts...hand mixer..cooling racks...cookie sheets...cookie jar, two new knitting books, the Redwall cookbook (yum!), CDs and new sheets for my bed (already washed and ready to go! yes, I have been taking full advantage of my parents' washer and dryer)

So with all my domestic gifts and a new year about to begin, I resolve to become a DOMESTIC GODDESS, able to create all my own clothing, cook everything from scratch, decorate and furnish my home with a few bits of twine and some tape...

hmm...maybe not ;)
