What We're Working On

Kelly's sourdough bread!

A post shared by Kelly Van Sant (@bookishchick)

My first sourdough ever, and made with my own starter! If all goes well tomorrow there will be bread. #feedthebitch —A photo posted by Kelly Van Sant (@bookishchick) on Sep 16, 2015 at 9:24am PDT

Sourdough! I'm not thrilled with the baking method I followed, so I'm excited to make the next boule with a few tweaks. But it's sour and its bread and I made it! #feedthebitch —A photo posted by Kelly Van Sant (@bookishchick) on Sep 17, 2015 at 10:41am PDT

JJ's Whiskey-Drinking Chair

A post shared by S. Jae-Jones (@sjaejones)

Who knew reupholstering an armchair would be so messy? Finally got this sucker stripped down. —A photo posted by JJ (@sjaejones) on Jan 17, 2015 at 5:38pm PST

It probably wasn't my smartest idea to reupholster an armchair without first learning how. #jjsdiy —A photo posted by JJ (@sjaejones) on Jan 24, 2015 at 11:12am PST

Okay. After replacing a broken needle and after a few more test stitches, I THINK I'm ready to tackle the real thing (armchair cushion cover.) I think. *gulp* —A photo posted by JJ (@sjaejones) on Sep 12, 2015 at 3:35pm PDT

I've sewn a zipper! I've sewn it BACKWARD. ??? And now to rip these stitches out... #undomesticgoddess —A photo posted by JJ (@sjaejones) on Sep 14, 2015 at 4:43pm PDT

A post shared by S. Jae-Jones (@sjaejones)

First sewing machine project complete! Cushion of armchair re-covered. I EVEN DID THE ZIPPER. I only had to rip out stitches 5 times... #undomesticgoddess —A photo posted by JJ (@sjaejones) on Sep 14, 2015 at 7:25pm PDT

Other Recommendations

  • Dusted by Story Wonk (a critical analysis of Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

It's TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART sung by Vicomte de Chagny and an ingenue named Sarah as a VAMPIRE LOVE DUET. I mean, c'mon.

It's All Coming Back to Me Now (as performed by Jeremy Jordan)
