Grandmas don’t read HOW and they certainly do NOT read SWISS  MISS but they DO read Better Homes and Gardens. You know, BHG? See how I just dropped that abbrev? Grandma would thumb through the fashion and gossip mags at the checkout but like any good homemaker she would add the BHG to her cart. If she was feeling particular sassy, she’d throw in the DIY magazine (brought to you by the good people at BHG).

Oh, DIY! You know Martha Stewart (PS: Martha, I DO want to see how you hay your fields) reads you under the covers with a flashlight – praying that Alexis doesn’t march into the room and flip on the soft-and-natural light. 

DIY magazine is doing a story on handmade goods – a “Best in Show” collection of the various craft shows around the country. We’ll be featured in the “Printed and Pressed” spread. Mmmm, printed and pressed… that makes me want a panini. Here are some photos – we can’t decide, although I think #4 tells a good story. Sometimes I go into the shop at night and Jen is just standing there like that. Shudder.

Jen and Fran must be happy.Jen and Fran seem so content.

ONE MORE! (I photoshopped a smile on Jen’s face):

Jen is smiling.

  1. FrancEs!
    The media mogul. Surely, Martha will be next.
    My fave is #1–good lighting, nice color and neither of you looks crazy. Nice cover up.
    #2 nice, but WTF were you looking at? The spanish speaking dog?
    #3 Here is the church and here is the steeple. . . Fun coming through. But again WTF was Jen looking at?
    #4. Texas Chainsaw Letterpress? Nuff said.
    #5. I think there is a bra story to be told here.

    I remain,
    your favorite client,

  2. Yay! Congrats! Can’t wait to pick up a copy and tell people “I emailed her!”

    When are you going to join Twitter? The world needs daily doses of Fran, not these onesie-twosie posts a week!


  3. Great pictures, Fran. Although my recollection is that Jen did smile when we met by chance ‘lo those many moons ago. Perhaps it was me. I’d like to think I bring out the smiles in the Card Chicks.

    The Card Chicks are the hottest babes in the faucetless arctic tundra and beyond. I miss you guys so much. And look at Printer Glenn comparing you to Abu Ben Adam. I think “Abu Ben Adam, may his tribe increase” is from a poem. I pulled it out of a hat almost 30 years ago in a Charades game; I’d never heard of that dude. The Card Chicks ROCK!
