Depending on how long you've been reading this blog, you may or may not remember way back when (April of 2008 to be exact) I had one of my apron patterns published in a book called "A is for Aprons". The publishers took 12 patterns from that book and created this new book "Simply Aprons" which features a pattern from yours truly. The book won't be available to ship until March 1st but I received my advance copy on Monday along with an additional copy that I have decided to give away here on ye olde blog. So if you want to win a copy just leave a comment (yes, stop the press- the comments are opening back up!) and tell me what your weekend plans are. Mine...hmm... Mexican restaurant with friends tomorrow night and I think that's it. Oh I just remembered it's a holiday weekend! We'll have to do something fun on Monday.
Now- for my other celebrity sighting (this one is for you, Elaine W.) I decided to expand my television watching to incorporate a few more shows. Call it a New Years resolution if you will. Right now I've only got about 4-5 shows in my television rotation. I became oddly intrigued by the show "Hoarders" and set it up on TiVo. That show...yikes! I am here to admit that I am a craft & fabric hoarder. Send in Dr. Zasio stat! I like her; she reminds me of my old neighbor, Rita, who by the way was an extra in a few "Leave it to Beaver" episodes while in her youth. I digress.
It was a cold, dark, night (as all stories should begin) and I was at the .99 cent store picking up valentines stuff for Henry's party and lo and behold who do I run into? Dr. Robin Zasio? No- I wish! ....wait for it....AN ACTUAL HOARDER WHO WAS FEATURED ON THE SHOW. What's even more impressive is that it took me about a 1/2 second to realize who this person was. I didn't even have to think about it. No, "hmm..that person looks familiar." And I know you are wondering- the answer is 'no' they were not hoarding stuff from the dollar store.
So, leave a comment, tell me what you are doing/did this weekend OR tell me of your best celebrity sighting. I'll leave the contest open until Mon. or Tues Wednedsay because of the holiday!
Have a good one!
