and so it begins...happy 2010

I can't believe how long I've had this blog.
I'm surprised and a little proud I've managed to keep it somewhat going.
In saying that though...I feel it's time for a change.
So if you've stumbled across this or are an actual reader of my rants
then i'm here to tell you that i can now be found here
it's nothing against blogspot.
I've just been wanting to get all my blogs connected in one place and have that place offer more.
So if you're still interested stop by and give the new format a chance.
Who knows i might actually update more often...
side note: i was bummed that hello charles was already taken but i kinda like my new name..
but hello charles will live on in archives and as always my best friend.

this beautifully drawn and yet heartbreaking memoir

making things and being crafty all around.
There's a great shop near me that I've been secretly visiting and wishing to take the classes there.
It also just Happens to be near my weekly stop shop.

Listening to:
yes,an audio book (shame me)
and another audio book i listen to while walking w/ THE Other one (get it).
i am listening to actual music
Le Sigh so in awe. wish wish wish

leaving tomorrow for Holidays,back in new year.
where and when i will attempt to be a better blogger.

*strings that tie to you*

I've been meaning to write and post lots of pretty pictures and do a general catch up.
And all though much has happened in my life.
I have such a low energy level. Yes some of that is due to just recently having had a baby.
However, when I think about posting i just feel so up-inspired.
I know most "bloggers" go through a down swing.
I just don't see this blog having a structure that keeps me motivated.
I thought about maybe changing to tumblr. They seem to have better templates.
But man oh man how does one transfer years of archives...ugh

I'll try tomorrow.

In a World of Pure Imagination

book club: Lorrie Moore
just because: Jeff Lemire  
He's becoming a favorite comic read. Just picked up Sweet Tooth and it made a tear in my eye.
Can't wait to see how this series will play out.

This is not only brilliant,it is much needed
