mysteries revealed


Here she is folks... my Secret Pal! Becky (we're on a first-name basis now) just sent me this fabulous package of chocolate, marzipan, and self-fair-isling sock yarn from Deutschland, where she was visiting family. Somehow she found out that I like chocolate and sock yarn - she must be part secret detective.

Check out the cute marzipan bunny! Too bad I will have to eat him.

Becky is a Design & Technology student, who understands the mysteries of the digital universe. She does amazing things like make video games you can play on your cell phone... whoa... (Meanwhile I'm still trying to figure out how to put things on the sidebar of this blog template). Visit her high-tech and DIY blog! No templates for Becky - she knows how to make those 0's and 1's behave.

And for those of you who are playing along with the Use What You Have thing this April, I leave you with some inspiration: The Compact. These amazing people are buying nothing new, all year long. I kneel at the altar of Buy Nothingness (and yes, they are blogging about it).
