A Potato Named Kim

My son made a new friend the other day. As you can see by the photos, It's not your average friend. It's a potato, a potato that was meant for our dinner but now has been named Kim in honor of Kim Novak. (We were watching Vertigo the evening he and miss potato made friends and my young son seemed to be quite enchanted with Kim Novak, so miss potato became Kim). It seems Ciaran was just bored with all of his other friends and needed someone to new to spice up his life. So when one of the potatoes that were meant for our dinner went missing I searched high and low only to find my son cuddling Kim next to his cheek and whispering sweet nothings to her. It has been two days now and Kim has made herself quite comfortable. I have found her napping on our couch under Ciaran's blankie, Playing hide and seek in the stereo's cassette player, and just hanging out in the baby wipes box. She is just one of the family now. We all love her. I will be very sad on the day she disappears and is made into french fries. I hope it doesn't break my son's heart.

I have been out of it for a few days. Dealing with the very end of an illness and recovering from a blow to the head which caused a small amount of confusion and dizziness. Better now and back to work. I just finished this lovely custom order. It was such a challenge but I am so happy to have done it. I had such a difficult time trying to figure out an attractive but functional heart shape how and where to exactly place the zipper. I came up with this, and I like it! Yay! now I must move on to something new.

I love potatoes more than anything. I had a custom necklace made that says "Potato" on it. For reals.
