Welcome to our little blog!
I’m Katrina, and I’m the bay half of lace and lemons. I grew up in the burgh with Amy, but I’ve been out in the San Francisco Bay area for about a year and a half, working towards an MFA in poetry.
I’m married to a wonderful guy (1 year, 7 months!) and when I’m not poet-ing, I tutor reading and history.
I have to admit, I’m not nearly as crafty as Amy, partly due to lack of skills and partly due to laziness, but I’m learning! What I do enjoy doing a lot is baking.
This is partly because I really like being “girl who brings cookies to gatherings” and partly because I am “girl who loves to eat cookies.” So you can expect to see lots of decadent baking recipes. I’ve also been working on becoming a better cook (I do okay, but not on the regular) and trying to incorporate some healthy recipes into my life (what? healthy??). So I’ll be using this blog to test out lots of food how-tos.
I also like to cross stitch. I’ve been doing stamped cross stitching for a few years, but I recently took the leap into counted cross stitch, with reasonably pleasant results.
I have a few projects I’m working on, and I plan on doing a general cross-stitching tutorial at some point.
Some other interests I hope to explore on lace and lemons include finding more interesting ways to use my wardrobe, hair and makeup tips and tricks, and maybe delving into more general craftiness. You’ll also probably notice my devotion to pop culture, sarcasm, and boots. I really love boots.
A general word about updates: Right now, we plan on updating Monday-Friday. Monday, because we usually have pretty severe “case of the Mondays” symptoms, will be something simple, maybe a link to a blog or song or article we find interesting. You’ll hear from Amy Tuesdays and Thursdays and from me on Wednesdays and Fridays. We’ll generally update on whatever it is we’re working on that day/week, but we might occasionally pull off a theme week or something (holidays, weddings, you never know.)
That’s about it, dear readers! Regular updates start tomorrow!
