About this Blog

This personal blog is a place where I post pictures, thoughts, and other things of “note” (usually related to birds and nature). I also post about my other interests related to crafts, cooking, and culture. Although I keep this blog mostly for myself, you are welcome to read along, too. I’m looking forward to eventually taking up a bigger writing project based on some of these posts — one day!

Happy reading!

  1. Hi! I am heading out for a festival for halloween on Thursday this coming week. I am really wanting to (very last minute) make this swan dress that you’ve whipped up. You did such an excellent job!

    My mom usually helps me with sewing projects, but I live in Colorado, and she lives in S.Carolina… so it doesn’t work unless I’m home on vacation.

    Is there any way I could get your help with how to layer this tulle??

    Thanks kindly,

    • I am sorry I didn’t see this until now! 😦 I feel bad that you probably won’t get to use this information, but I will leave this reply anyway in case it helps.
      To answer your question: I cut the tulle into 16″ width strips, which I folded in half (hot-dog style) then sewed the tulle into “pleats” on the white underdress. The pleats don’t have to be perfect since it’s puffy tulle. After I was finished sewing the pleats, I fluffed them out and then accented the edges of the dress with pieces of a feather boa.
      I posted some more directions in a craftster thread here.
      I hope this helps, or at least satisfies your curiosity. Good luck. 🙂

  2. Hello 🙂

    I really like your blog and the stuff your involved in. Especially the Young Naturalists program! it’s awesome!

    And my mum makes the same (yum) bread pudding as you. (I focus more on the eating)

    I’m admitted to the SNRE masters program in Sustainable Systems for Fall 2012 too, so it’d be the civil engineer working alongside the naturalist, just like they said!

    Couldn’t find your email address on the blog, thats why I’m leaving a comment. If you’d like to get in touch, I’m afrozain@gmail.com.

    • Sorry for only replying now, afrozain! Did you go to SNRE? Where are you nowadays? Are you still involved in or interested in work related to the environment? Let me know!
