I had the honor of having a booth at the Blue Sky Studios holiday Bazaar back in December.  It was amazing and fun.  Here is a photo:

French Food in Chicago

Hello dear and faithful readers (I’m not sure if I have any…).

I know I haven’t updated much, but with the move to California for my new gig at Disney, I’ve been super super busy. But I digress.

The creator of Apartment Farm, Amanda Olsen, is writing pieces on French Food in Chicago for The Examiner. Her most recent article, 5 Essentials for your French Kitchen, is up now. I know some of you are foodies so get to reading.

Zipper Foot

I love my Brother sewing machine. It has treated me very well these last few years. I do not, however, love the zipper foot it came with. It’s so wide and awkward and very hard to use to actually sew a zipper on. It looks like this: . If you suffer from zipper anxiety and you have this same kind of zipper foot, rest assured there is hope. There is a Vertical Needle Zipper foot that looks like this: you can just take off the entire foot attachment on your machine and put this one on. It’s like heaven, I’m sure. I just replaced my giant zipper foot with a vertical needle zipper foot and I’m so super happy. You should be able to find them at your local fabric store. I got mine at The Needle Shop

Completely Unrelated

I just need to vent about a non-sewing issue. I’m completely freaking out. I desperately need employment in my field (computer graphics and motion technology) and I’ve been applying and applying places much to no avail. I received a voice mail from the recruiter at Walt Disney Animation Studios for a Talent Development program, which lets face it, if I am accepted would be so bad ass, but when I called him back I received his voice mail. I mean I know he is a super busy guy, I half didn’t expect him to answer, but I’m SO nervous. This guy and I have exchanged numerous amounts of emails and I was sure that he was ready to tell me I am in! But his voice mail says he has some more questions and wants to know more about my career goals. I don’t know what my career goals are! I mean I know I don’t want to be working for MTTV any more. And I know that I want to work in feature films. But doing what exactly? I DON’T KNOW. I have a fear that I am going to completely screw this up.
