Gift ideas
With Valentines Day getting near I thought I would post some of my Fav gift ideas. All of the gifts will be under $20, unique, and will be guaranteed to create awesome memories. Check back through the month to see new ideas!
Yes, I said flip books! This site and product are so fun! I did this for my Husband last Fathers day, and he adored it! All you have to do is download a personal video, or pictures and presto! You have a one of a kind gift that no when can top (unless they have a billion dollars and buy you a tropical island or something?). They start at $8.99, and go up from there. You can even place bulk orders for Birthdays, Wedding favors, and the list goes on and on.
I recorded a quick video on my digital camera of my Son dancing, Loaded the video to flipclips, Picked a cover, and in about a week I had a awesome gift! EasyPesy!
They also often send you coupons for % off or even free flip books on your next purchase.
Pretty cool in my book!

Lazy Days...
I am still trying to beat this darn cold! It has been kicking my butt for over a week. My Son (the germ infested pip) has it too. I have tried every conceivable cold medication out there, nothing works against this mutant. I guess it is back to old remedies, Chicken soup don't fail me now!

I decided to post some awesome finds on Etsy that I am really lovin right now!
The Scottie letter holder is soo amazing. I wish I had scooped it up first!
Well enjoy and happy Etsy hunting!

New Look for a new Year!
Happy Wednesday! The sun peaked out at me for a tiny bit, and then ran back to hide behind the clouds. It now looks gloomy like rain is headed our way.
I am really looking forward to warmer weather! I can't wait to do more "Spring cleaning" and to start planting my garden!
In honor of Spring and warm weather...
I gave the blog a make-over. I think it really needed it (plus the old one was making me dizzy). I hope you like the new light and airy feel!

In other news I would like to share a new project of mine! Say a howdy welcome to 3-D pouches! I am so excited about this venture! I have been working on this for a while now and it was so awesome to finally release the first in the series (yes, I said series). After many tries and countless headaches, I finally found what worked! Yay! I have listed the Space themed pouch in the shop already. This is only one idea that has been floating around my crowed and silly head.

Well off I go. I am out of coffee and there are errands that need running!

Hello Tuesday...
This week so far has brought shopping, snow, rain, sunny days, eureka moments, and a head cold. Wait, you say its only Tuesday? How could that all happen by the 2nd day of the week?
It's all true I say!
This week was suppose to be the week that I got a head start on the pending projects and errands. Instead I got sick. Just my luck! Sore throat, headache, stuffy nose, now a cough that could wake a drugged raver!
Looking at the bright side to all of this (under the dirty tissues) I got to break in my new slippers! Santa dropped them off on Christmas and they are AMAZING! They are from LLBean, and are super comfy! I love you slippers!
Here lays my mess.
I still can't wait to finally move into my studio. Maybe this Summer will bring promise :)

The week is half over and boy am I glad! I think I have the Winter blues, and am in need of some sunshine! In my state of mooping I have managed to start some projects that have been brewing my little head. I love being part of some of the teams on Etsy (even if i don't have as much time as I would like to create with them) and have been a member of Etsy Veggie for some time. This group is near to my heart, always helping other members, and donating lots of funds to many worthy causes. I wanted to express my love, and help support them this fine new year! My idea, I would design a pouch just for them!

This is a pieces of the fabric I have created for Etsy veggie! I am not sure if I want to tweek it some more...Maybe I will let it grow on me for another day or two :)
I also wanted to make another little something to go inside the pouch! How about recipe cards! Everyone needs recipe cards, no?
I hear the kettle calling my name! Back to work he says!

Winters dream...
It seems like Summer, Fall, and Winter have gone by with a flash. After opening my own shop last August, I have been working non-stop. It doesn't even feel like the Holidays have come and gone. I have so many things I want to do! But the question is do I have the time to do them? I have been buzzing around working on new ideas, old ideas, and keeping up with orders. Sometimes I wish I could tune out the world and just work on crafty projects all day. I have so many ideas, maybe too many ideas! I hope to try and keep the blog up to date this year as much as possible.
So today I will start with some AWESOME gifts I received for Christmas!
National Geographic Image collection hardcover book. It is filled with never before seen photos from their archives! I am such a nerd! I wanted this book the second I laid eyes on it! I think my idea of the best day ever would be to spend an entire day in the national geographic archives with unlimited access and unlimited hot coffee ! Hahaha!

I have a Le creuset obsession. There, I said it!

I also got these boots from Nine West their vintage America series. I love these boots! I can't wait to wear them in the Spring, and Fall! I think they may even work with a cute dress some days? I guess I can't wait for the snow to melt, but I still have 3 mos to go!
Well I hope my awesome gifts from err "Santa" have inspired you, or made you jealous :)
