She tries to buy her child’s love

I don’t know if we’ve discussed this before, but Gigi loves Eric (her father, my husband) WAY more than me. Yes, I know that children go through phases, but it’s pretty much all the time. He’s a bowl of sunshine and sugar, and I’m a tolerable thimbleful of watered-down juice. For the most part I …

DIY Chestnut Ornaments

Hello! I hope you stuffed yourselves silly last week. I know I did. Like, I mean it got absurd there at the end. But let’s talk about happier things. Today I’m really excited to share with you a little something that I put together for the Bijou Market. Chestnut Ornaments *not recommended for roasting on …

Happy Thanksgiving and Turkey T round up

Hey fun fans, what are you doing? You should be shoving your fat faces…I know I am. But in case you need a break from all the gorging, here are some very festive Gobble Gobble Turkey T’s to feast on. Obviously Merrilee, over at Mermag had to not only make the CUTEST Turkey T, and …

Tiny T Graduate: Erin

I know, I’m a big, fat, liar. I said I’d post the Chestnut tutorial. But we are actually on a road trip on our way to San Diego for the Holidays, and it’s just not a possibility! But! I wanted to share a Tiny T that my friend Erin made for her little girl Penelope, …

She sold out…tweet, tweet.

Well I mean, like in the sense that I’m a “sell-out.” Not that like my booth at the Bijou Market was cleared clean. But it was a great event! I’ll start by saying the number one reason I’m a sell-out is because I joined Twitter. I think my anti-Twitter stance was even firmer than my …

Ooops, I WILL be at Bijou

 Um, so, I had reserved a spot at Bijou…but said NO! I will not do it! I need my sanity. I planned on cancelling, but I never did…and now I find myself the night before furiously packaging all my goodies! It’s just too much fun not to participate. See here for details. I just can’t …

She’s Loving Bijou, and Why You Should Too

Even though I decided to take a break (and by break you all know I mean 6 seasons of Buffy) and not sell at the Bijou Market this season, I’m still BEYOND excited to attend this weekend! And one reason in particular is to snatch up some of this designer wrapping paper by fifth&hazel! Luckily …

The Great Jumpsuit Experiment or My Fall Momiform

One time I read an article in Parenting and they used the word: “momiform.” I love stuff like that. A momiform makes perfect sense if you are a mom! It’s your mom-uniform. It’s the outfit you  unintentionally put on almost everyday. They’re the clothes you can grab without thinking. And I don’t know about you, …

She Recommends: Creamy Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

Last week I tried a new tomato soup recipe reccomended by my bestie Jessica, and it was SO GOOD I had to share. The recipe comes from the fabulous blog Spoon Fork Bacon. Isn’t that the best name ever? I adore it. The soup is easy to make, but you roast the tomatoes for about …

She Gives: Gift Idea- Nail Kit

‘Tis the season to give! And you know I love giving handmade gifts. But sometimes I think it’s nice to combine a little something handmade with something that it would be dangerous if I tried to make…like nail polish. I got a C in chemistry. I made my girl Nichelle this little nail kit as …
