Axios! (If I do say so myself)

Matt was ordained a priest this past weekend. It is still rather surreal.

We appreciate your prayers in this new time of our lives!

Oh, and since it is a frequently asked question, in the Orthodox church, priests can be married. :)

*I made a nice trip to the fabric store, so I have some sewing posts planned!*

Loathe cutting onions?

I learned this tip a long time ago.

It helps so much! I just keep a few tea lights in my kitchen to use when chopping onions. If your eyes burn a lot from cutting onions, please give it a try! Just be careful to not get onion peels in the flame (duh, but it is easy to do if you look closely at my picture. oops.).

Handmade dress for sale

I am about to list this dress on my Etsy shop, but I thought I would offer it to my readers first. If you are interested, send me an email.

Handmade dress, $20.00 

Now I will offer a story of how being cheap and innovative doesn't always work out for the better. My dressform does not have a base. I had the brilliant idea of using an old curtain rod to function as the base. What I didn't expect was that it had some rusty water in it that leaked on the dress as I put it on. Heart break. I scrubbed and scrubbed and managed to get most of it out. I have pictures of them if you would like to see what I am talking about. The stains are very faint. They will be included with the Etsy listing, but are still on my camera, *wink.

A one day special for Downton Abbey from Amazon

I was just pretty happy to find this deal this morning. I violated the don't-get-yourself-a-gift-just-before-Christmas rule, since I didn't think I would be getting this as a gift, and bought it.

  You can get the Bluray versions for season 1 & 2 (as a set) for $25.99! It is 60% off. The sale is only for today, so if it is something you want, keep it in mind. :) Also, I didn't know there was a difference between the UK and US version, but there is. The US version was cut by a couple of hours. This is for the UK version.
