I actually hadn't left... Just so busy. Every summer I envision lolling around the pool, going for long walks, eating ice cream, relaxing. Then summer comes and its non stop and nuts from start to finish. We have had lots of fun, and there has been lots of work. I managed toi finally gewt the site up for Froy and Olo (www.froyandolo.com
). I found a great webguy and he whipped it into shape in no time. I knew exactly what I wanted- i just need someone to help make it work. If I can't even figure oiut how to get photos on this thing, I think an actual e commerce site is beyond my reach!
I did get my spoil a blogger spoilee the other day. I had sort of forgotten that this was coming so it was a fun surprise. I guess there is a spoiler lurking around out there trying to get the digs on me and this sparsely posted blog is no help! So here are my spoil a blogger questions:
What is your favorite color? Not one to play favorites, I like all the blues, greens and pinks the best.
What is your favorite scent? I love floral scents i.e. roses, plumerias ,jasmine, tuberose and banana boat aloe vera which I will be slathering on tonight for my sun itchy skin!
Where is your favorite place to vacation? Im a maui girl or central oregon (high desert)
Do you collect anything? Lately I am collecting vintage fabrics- heck all fabrics. I love Amy Butler and Kaffe Fasset. And velvet ribbons.
Do you have a favorite tv show? This can be potentially humiliating- right now I find "so you think you can dance" riveting. I also love Malcom in the middle , arrested development , and shark week on the discover channel. I dont think sharks are cruel mindless killing machines though. Its the food chain.
Are you crafty?
Yep. I like to do it all. Sewing, drawing, beading, knitting. The latest thing on my list is I want to learn to crochet.
Do you have kids? 2 beautiful amazing ones.
Do you have pets? One black hamster named Carrot that likes his tummy rubbed. Odd behavior for prey, dont you think?
What kind of movies do you like? I like all but sad, depressing, evil scary violent ones. My top favorites right now are "Finding Neverland " which was incredible , "The Notebook" Oh, the crying, "The Color Purple"," Fried Green Tomatoes"
What kind of music do you listen to?Right now I cant put the new Jason Mraz away. I like all kinds though. I love brazilian, latin, bossa nova.
What kind of books do you like to read? Read? I dont read anymore. Sad but true. I love reading and when I read all I want to do is read so it is on hold until I have less to do!I love magazines though. Thats my reading.
Do you have a favorite magazine?I love Home Companion (much to my surprise) This Old House, Shape, Self, People
What is your favorite weekend activity? Letting it roll out naturally- having a plan or two but really just doing things we feel like doing. A day trip to play frisbee golf, a day at the beach. Just uninterupted good ole family time. And anything spa related.(when I need a break from good ole family time!)And gardening.
What kind of work do you do?I am chief illustrator and founder of Froy and Olo. Along with that I do freelance design work. Specifically, I am a color designer. I color shoes for big footwear companies. Yes, it really is a job.
What do you do for fun? Swim, go walk, knit, sew, draw, laugh with my kids, hang out at farmers market, bake pie, garden
So thats me in a nutshell. It is so hot here tonight. It hit 100 today and the house just won't let all of the soaked in heat go. I wonder if its going to be hot again tomorrow?
Now I am going to try to add a lovely picture of a pot from Aimee's house (a favorite friend ) She and Unky D (her hubby) have the touch with the flora for sure. I need to get me some of those ghost ferns. Until next time...
Hey! I did it! I put the photo on at the top!
