    You might be able to get black kool-aid around Halloween

    I have been enjoying your podcasts and look forward to hearing each one. THANKS so much for doing these…I’m getting great ideas and inspiration for projects. So keep ’em coming!

    Good luck to you and your husband on his interviews and job search!

    • Stacey says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, DeeAnna! I’m optimistic about the job search… I’ll definitely report back about the results :)

    I forgot to mention that my husband and I will be moving this year too…back to the States from Okinawa, where we’ve lived for almost 4 years. It’s going to be neat to see how things have changed while we’ve been away. Also, I can’t wait to get back to American craft stores. Japan has neat things…but unfortunately I can’t read very much Kanji or Hiragana or Katakana. I have picked up some very cool fabric here tho. :-D

    • Stacey says:

      I bet it’ll be fun to be back! I LOVE Japanese stores, but I can see how it could get a little tiring. I’ve learned to read ‘wool’, ‘silk’ and ‘cotton’ in Kanji… that only helps a little bit, tho!
