  Here it is, finally! My shag rug is complete. I love how it feels under my feet, and if it starts to look a little flat, I pick it up, shake it, and it fluffs right back up!  It took some time but I finished it and I’m glad I decided to make one. You can too, especially if you like to cut up t-shirts but never know what to do with the scraps afterwards. The scraps from my scarves are perfect candidates for making a rug.

Temporarily Taking a Temporary "Holiday"

Posted by on May 6, 2010 in apartments, bed bugs, Chicago, exterminator, holiday | 1 comment

My fiance and I are going on a “holiday” of sorts. Unfortunately, it is because we are having our apartment exterminated this Friday at noon. And our holiday unfortunately is sandwiched in a evening between two full days of work. What a holiday!
