Suburban Matron on Ohdeedoh Today

Y'all!  I am featured today on Ohdeedoh, the parenting section of the Apartment Therapy megablog.  Beth Callaghan, who writes for them, in addition to her blog Remarkably Domestic, sent me some great questions to ponder and respond to, and then she did a truly sweet profile of Suburban Matron.  It was so much fun to do, and  she is the best blog friend a girl could have.  Go over there and have a look! And if a bunch of us leave comments, maybe Beth will win the pink cadillac, or be elected Homecoming Queen! Or something good, which she definitely deserves.

I have mentioned this before, but if you are not familiar with her blog, Beth is crafting her way through the Martha Stewart Encyclopedia of Crafts, from A to Z.  She is, I believe, working her way through "F" for "Foliage" right now (or is it "B" for "Botanical"?)  She's done about 30 crafts and documented the labor involved, always ending with a "Was it worth it?" section.  I expected this project to be interesting, but I did not expect it to turn into such an exposé.  Many of the items on Martha's supply lists, it turns out, are practically Unobtainium and cannot be tracked down by a normal person without a staff of minions. Her latest project had her harvesting seaweed.  

Y'all, when one of the steps in a project is "Harvest seaweed," that is a sign that I'm going to be doing something else.  But it makes for great reading.  And I'm not just saying that because Beth has now catapulted me to fame. But I AM famous now, RIGHT?  

Go check me out!

Air kisses,

I knew you'd achieve fame, just wasn't sure when. Great feature! Now I'm waiting for your book. (And thanks for the nice mention Becky. xoxo)

Congrats on the notoriety! It was fun to read a little of your background and get some tips on other good blogs.

So when you're on Oprah, can I hang out with you in the green room?

It's a great write-up! And I agree, Beth's blog is fun reading! Who knew that pressing seaweed could be so riveting?
