craft-effen-tastic!


ok, so remember how the highlight of last year's Craftacular was when a certain someone bought one of my dresses (the one i secretly hoped no one would buy so i could keep it myself, to be exact)? well, all year long i have regretted not having the nerve to ask for a photo as evidence. fast forward to this year: i made four new dresses in this same style, and decided to keep (and wear) the one in the same fabric as that one. now, it occurred to me, what if she sees me in it, would that be weird? what if it didn't fit her? what if she wants to RETURN it this year? then i thought, of course i'm being silly; she probably doesn't even remember that dress and won't even notice if i'm wearing it! so i went ahead with my plan and first thing in the morning, as we're setting up, one of my table-mates (was it siri? or nan? the moment is a blur...) points out to me that SHE IS WEARING THE DRESS TOO!!! i couldn't believe it! she had a cute apron/pinafore thingie on over it but sure enough, it was my dress, and we were twinsies! i ran over to show her, and wittily quipped, "we should have called each other!" and she told me she loves it and wears it all the time. unbelievable! i was pretty much beaming all day thanks to this. and this time, i got proof!

It is killing me that I missed the craftacular this year. Turns out that going back to school really puts a cramp in my crafty social life! But I finished my midterm! Glad that you and AS got to connect. You are both so cool.

Wow Cal that's amazing! I'm sure it wasn't a coincidence, either, she probably wears it all the time! You two look great together, you should have your own TV show together, with Gertie too.

i was once a reader for an audition she was at. i didn't know of her at the time. but when she left, she said, "you should audition for this--you're awesome."

later, when it crystallized who she was, i too was beaming and have never forgotten the warm fuzzy feeling the memory gives me.
