Bean bag update

Here is another piece of brilliance from Dana at Made.  Great for any age through the board.  Although I have to say at this point in my life, if I were to sit down  it might take a team to get me back up.


The beauty of the roll

To be honest, I don’t see me ever really collecting enough rolls to do this beauty from asubtlerevelry.  Still have to say that it is pretty darn awesome!

Music Wednesday!

See those young lads in the picture above? Well those are the brilliant minds of Coldplay, one of the most acclaimed alternative bands in music history. They broke out with their debut album Parachutes in 1999. Since then, they’ve been creating nonstop releasing some of the best albums of all time. But today is a good day because Coldplay has released their new album Mylo Xyloto (I don’t know how to pronounce it either, just go with it). Take a listen to the song below, and if you like, get the album and enjoy yourself some good ol’ Coldplay heavenliness.

I don’t think that I have been so excited about a project, as I am about this one.  I mean a bag with lights?  What else do you want?  THis and a pound bar of chocolate and I’m good 🙂

With drying time this took 30 minutes to put together (believe it or not I actually used fabric paint).  A cute fun project that might just inspire you to actually print out one of the 20 million pictures that you have saved on Iphoto.  Would make a cute to-do for besties of any age.

Widdle Toes

True has the tiniest little feet, basically she swims in all standard baby shoes.  So I whipped out my crochet hook and made these little guys from our Amy Butler yarn and a pattern from the Homemade Dress.  They take about 10 minutes to make and you could adorn them with a bow or flower.

Messy Perfection

Hair combs are awesome for the new “messy” updos.  Give yours some boho chic appeal with this great idea from PS I made this.










400th Post!

I know everyone is doing it, taking pics of the babes in onesies etc. with the days or months on them to document their growth. Seeing as True has been in the store since she was 8 days old, it seemed like a natural to graph her growth on our measuring board.  Funny that it works out with our 400th post.  We love you Truly!


It’s been 3 days since I first tried these cookies, and yes.  I am still thinking about them.  The next day in my car on the way to work, I did some serious thinking.  Had I ever had a better cookie?  After going back through all my days, the answer?  No.  Yup. Literally the best cookie I ever had.  Check out her website, the list of the different cookies is dizzying.  I want them ALL.

Can’t wait to get my next fix!

Sip & Sew

This week some girls came in after hours with a load of cocktails and smiles to celebrate the birthday of a local sweetheart.  The craft of the evening?  Aprons.  Apparently, pomegranate cosmos are not only delicious but have an amazing affect on your creativity, because these girls turned out some gorgeous little numbers.  One of the hightlights for me were the super yummy cookies from the amazing baker and genius behind Sweet and Simple cookies.  I am officially an addict.
