Happy St. Patty's Day...and stuff

Happy St. Patrick's day everybody. This holiday seems to be really big in New Orleans, but of course there's always a reason to party down here. I've noticed as friends and loved ones have moved to other states that many things that are huge here just aren't as big in other places. Me and Megan were talking about this last night. We went downtown and pretended to be tourists and ate at our favorite restaurant, Angeli, with Chris and Angela. I've never appreciated downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter so much until I started seeing what other downtowns look like. I love downtown anywhere, but New Orleans is just so special when it comes to that.

I wanted to bring my camera with me last night, but as usual I forgot it. I was going to take pictures of poppets eating beignets at Cafe Du Monde and looking at the Saint Louis Cathedral for Poppets on Tour over at PoppetPlanet. The forums are wonderful at PoppetPlanet, and even if you don't know much about Poppets, I still think that anybody would enjoy the forums. Lots of fun stuff to talk about. Check them out.

I've already found a really cool website through PoppetPlanet called The Toy Maker. It consists of all kinds of cool things that you can print out to make your own toys, boxes, gadgets, etc. Many of them are free and the art on them is great. They also have a book on Amazon that looks like a winner.

In other Lisa news, the Vernal Equinox sale is officially underway and there are lots of Little Red Poppets for sale for $9 and what's up so far is beautiful. I bought a Luck's Dancer Harlequin from her during the last sale, and there's one up for this sale that is a Dryad Dancer, and it's beautiful!

We're going to see VAST tonight at the Howlin' Wolf and that makes me very happy. They are one of my few favorite bands that I still haven't seen perform and I'm looking forward to it. In addition, I get to check out the new Howlin' Wolf which is supposed to be much bigger and much nicer.

Just wanted to give a quick update. I've been slacking off on the blogging. It will probably resume more regularly once Megan leaves :( and definitely once school ends.

It's incredible! All kinds of cool things to just print and make. Your kid(s)? should love it.
