how pinteresting.

I am absolutely obsessed with Pinterest. According to the site, it's a place to catalog the things you love. And according to my boards, I love a lot of things. It's like all the vision boards in my head combined into one site. It's a visual smorgasborg of everything pretty and delicious and cute. My kind of site.

Let me know if you would like an invite. :)

will you be mine, twine?

I have discovered Baker's Twine and I think I'm in love. Are bakers supposed to use them in their baking? In any case, I have been seeing them in many cards via blogland and I jumped on the bandwagon. A friend recommended Whisker Graphics. Swoon. So many cute colors at 240 yards each. They are selling their (k)Nots at a discounted 33% price because of slight imperfections. I can't even tell and they were way cheaper than their perfect spools. Can't wait to start creating!


belated valentine's day post aka happy president's day.

I have sadly been neglecting this poor blog. Work has taken over my life and I find myself out of my creative mojo. I did make myself create something for the staff for Valentine's Day. It took every ounce of my being to get in the scrap room and get myself out of my rut. They did come out very cute and it made me want to do more creatively.

Thank goodness I had today off because lately, I have been out of my ever-loving mind with workaholism. I need to make time for creativity because I am losing myself in this misery. Here's to President's Day, a day to honor our presidents past and present, and a day that I get to have off!


pin cushion.

Finished my first sewing project! Wahoo! :) It's a pin cushion and I had good practice ironing and putting fabric together. I only worked with very old scraps since I didn't want to waste my newly purchased cute fabric. Fabric, in this day and age, looks like scrapbook paper. So many to choose from and so little time. Uh oh. Found something else to hoard besides scrapbook supplies.
