Hello, Goodbye

I created throwingwaffles.com way back in 2005 when I was outgrowing blogger and was ready to graduate to my very own domain name. And it has been pretty sweet; the whole story behind the throwing waffles name still rings awfully true. But it’s time for a change, so I’m moving over to shelikesstripes.com. See you […]

#101 and Done!

Way back in January, I started a new photo project for the new year (because sixty-four colors and my third year of Project 365 weren’t enough, simultaneously): Scavenger Hunt 101. When Pookie and Schnookie suggested it, I was really skeptical. There were a lot of items on this list (a child crying, someone meditating or […]

December Daily Week Five

Yes, I’m still going, and still loving this project. Updates in smaller chunks seem so much more manageable, if you can get past having a giant mess on one’s dining room table all month. (Oh, to have a craft table…) It’s hard to see this (for me at least) without photos; I’m planning one final […]

December Daily Week Four

While working on it in short bursts is surprisingly easy (as long as you leave your craft crap out so you don’t have to set up/clean up every time), making these books without having photos printed is tough. It’s hard to imagine what I […]

December Daily Week Three

Here’s your patented weekly update on my December minibook’s progress. Don’t mind that blurred out page; that’s part of my super sekrit December craft, which I’ll be posting once it has made its way toward the recipients! (I really love stashing secret bits inside the envelopes, and making stripes out of washi tape. Seriously). (Last […]

December Daily Week Two

I’ve been steadily working on my December book (here are the first week’s pages), and I am enjoying the idea of posting updates on Wednesdays. Since I don’t have a photo printer, I’m going to wait until the end of the month to order the photos for this book, so some of these pages are […]


It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a roundup of photos from the archives that match the week’s color for sixty-four colors. I think it’s mostly because there are so many crayons that are so similar, and I may have already posted old shots for those colors. Either way, this week’s color was red, […]
