So I blogged ANOTHER thing -- not a fat thing, a thing about #friendship. I dunno if it's any good, but read it here: http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/they-will-be-your-home

I have been making my own laundry detergent! Learn how: http://www.jenselk.com/chic/diy-laundry-detergent-not-so-chic-but-very-cheap
So this is not a chic, decor-related post, but it is about a homemakerish thing, so I thought I'd throw it up. I've been making my own laundry detergent. Yep! Super Susie Homemaker! That's me! Lots...

New #personal   #blog  post. This one's about friends. Keeping 'em. Culling 'em. That sort of thing. Happy New Year!

http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/on-hollow-men-and-women
I don't make New Year's resolutions any more. Haven't for a long time. If you know me, you probably know that. There were a few years when I pretending I'd stopped making them, but quietly pressed my...

I wrote a #poetical personal #blog. Couldn't seem to help it. 
This city is full of ghosts. I see them everywhere, flickering on the perimeter, and at the edges of things. One might brush past me on the street. Another peers down from between the branches of a...

I did a quick blog filled with lots of beautiful Adrienne Adams illustrations, just in time for Halloween. 
Remember back in 2011 when I blogged about A Woggle of Witches by Adrienne Adams? Well, this time of year always gets me in the mood for such things, what with my love of Halloween and all. (Classic,...

Wrote a new personal blog. It's not really about anything. Mostly, I just complain about how early I woke up this morning. But then I talk a little about today's date and  it gets a little mushy, but not for the reasons you might imagine. 

http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/lucky-number-thirteen
I woke up early this morning. At 5:30 AM or so.  I know that's not early for some people, but it's  extremely  early for me. I'm not lazy, but I work from home and I'm a bit of a night owl, often...

HEY! So I wrote a thing for a neat Tumbler and it went up today. It's a #fat thing. It was a bit scary. http://iamthisfat.tumblr.com/post/119614599166/whats-the-first-thing-you-noticed #SA @HAES#FA
This is how fat I am. Or rather, this is how fat I was three years ago, on my wedding day. I’ve been both significantly smaller and significantly larger, but this photo is not so far off from the size...

Today I was reminded of my love for funny/punny vintage Valentine's Day cards. So I compiled some. It's an excellent blog post. Not at all lazy. http://www.jenselk.com/speaks/my-punny-valentine
You what's really come a long way? The internet. Every year, I look online for old punny Valentine's Day cards, and the pickings used to be slim, but man ... things have changed.  That's true about...

I wrote a little post about the @AnnexFlea. And about how maybe @WillAndBequeath should do fleas. (Should I?) http://www.jenselk.com/chic/the-annex-flea-and-me
Hello fellows. As 2014 draws to a close, and Pantone debuts dirty wine as the "it" colour for the new year, and all those annoying listicles start pouring out, I find myself thinking about what I...

Had a weird/rude experience at a bookstore in Toronto this weekend -- BMV Books, Yonge and Eglinton. Just thought I'd do a wee blog review about it.  http://www.jenselk.com/reviews/bmv-yonge-and-eglinton-dickhead-central
Most of the time, I love BMV. (Mostly because I love books.) I love BMV so much, BMV gift cards have become a go-to-gift for me. People give them to me, I give them to other people. It's all very...

Ikea debuts new furniture that you can build in five minutes. IS THIS FOR REAL? I dunno. I blogged about it. 
One of the reasons I don't blog much about home decor any more is that my home is largely finished. Sure, I move things around on occasion, and I have been very very very slowly redecorating the...

Oh, look. It's the most flattering picture of me taken this year.
