I can’t sleep anymore; in the evenings or the mornings. My mind is full of ideas and excitement.  My boyfriend is laughing at me because I keep pulling out the mail I received yesterday; a Pantone color chart and fabric swatches from He is more excited about the fudge we received from his parents. But to me this is as good as fudge. Hoping soon to be printing some of my own fabric designs!

(I hope the Postal Service can keep it together so I can keep getting such delightful snail mail).

Side note, NPR did a story on octopuses yesterday (apparently, that is now the unfortunate but official plural of octopus), and apparently they have individual control of each and every sucker. Someone on (here) estimates 1,920 suckers. If only I had so many fingers to do everything at once.
