new couch coming soon + a zine update

My blogging calendar tells me that I'm supposed to write an update on my zine progress.  I may have laughed when I read that entry.  So here's my zine progress so far - zero.  I've had a couple of great embarrassing story submissions (keep them coming) but other than that I've had no time to work on this thing.  Doesn't mean it won't happen, just means that it won't happen in March.

So instead I thought I'd give you a sneak-peek at a piece of furniture that is soon to join our home.

So while I'm lagging behind on one of my creative goals I am working towards accomplishing another - interior design.  Presently I am working on a little corner of the master bedroom.  I have grand plans for a reading nook.  I imagine little George taking her naps on this couch one day, passed out with a book over her face.  I'm also in the midst of planning new curtains for this space, but I'll save more on for another blog post.

Have you trolled Craigslist of Kijiji for any vintage furniture lately?  I haven't been checking those sites much since they removed the personals....
