cozy sunday

today started out with some delicious brunch at zazie with some friends from high school. it was great--laid back, relaxing, and right next to a heat lamp.
we really enjoyed catching up for a lazy sunday morning. after brunch i went into work for a bit and then went home to do some crafting. i had seen an idea for a cord organizer in readymade magazine using an ikea organizer and decided it was a must for our household--the cats chew on cords like they're full of catnip, so this would be a perfect way to help keep them out of sight. i think it's going to work out very well for us...
stu, testing it out while i put the felt in the drawers
basically the premise is that you have a drawer and feed the cords through the back (you don't put the back on the drawer unit). you then put your phone, ipod, whatever in the drawer while it's charging--this way you always know where the cord is and i don't have to worry about my cats gnawing through my phone cord while it's charging. we decided to move the bottom drawer and use that as a docking station for the laptop, and create a new use for the drawer. also accomplished this weekend? one of two baby booties for a special someone...i need to test them out on claire this week to see if they work...
and a few pictures of what was happening while i was trying to work...
