more for your neck

oh, man. i' ve been sick. again. i haven't had a voice for 4 days but that did stop me from singing a lot of karaoke at our awesome zaaz christmas party. man, my co-workers know how to throw-it-down.

so i am feeling a bit behind with christmas. which is a bummer because i love all the little details of the holiday but my head is so foggy it is hard to do them. i am planning a very lovely christmas dinner, i'm almost done with the menu and I will share when i am.

i did get some more scarves up on etsy! i'm having so much fun with these. check them out.

thank you to my beautiful model Aileen

new baby

dear dear fenix was born this week. his parents are our adopted brother and sister. he was very early and is less than 5 pounds but oh so strong and oh so sweet. i held him for the first time last night and i could tell he already loves me:)

we had a baby shower for his parents last month (so glad we did it so early) The party turned out beautifully. lauren and i made all the decorations, made up the games and fun was had by all.

the crazy old cat lady

i know halloween was a while ago but i kept forgetting to post these photos of rudi. he was a crazy old cat lady (thank you corey for the the idea) he got a first place prize at dog-o-ween. he was so funny and wore the costume like a champ! I found this pink house coat made for a dog (i can't imagine who would seriously put it on a dog) I made a floral skirt and attached it to the coat. I attached doll hair to a piece of fabric to make the wig and head cover. top it off with blue eye shadow, pink lips, little booties i made and some stuffed cats and whala, the cat lady was born. i think the costume was even funnier because he is a boy!

And here we are walking the cat walk.

thanksgiving all around

we are enjoying a visit with our relatives in Minnesota this week. we are taking photos and i'm sure you are doing the same with your peeps today. i took a moment to see how the rest of the world spends their thanksgiving and found a few photos that really tell the story of this holiday. these photos all say so much i could write a short story for each of them (anyone want to try that? I'll post here if you do) I will also post any photos of your thanksgiving plate filled to the brim. i love food pictures, even thought my Minnesota mom and dad make fun of me everytime i take them!

enjoy. and have a great day.

for my walls

i love wall decals. i have since i first noticed them a few years back. but for some reason i've never actually purchased any. which is odd because i love decorating and i have always lived in rentals. So i recently redid my sewing/crafting studio and now I want some decals.

there are so many lovely ones out there. i'm having a hard time deciding. here are a few I found on etsy. enjoy!


i love decorating things that aren't traditionally decorated.vital

i love the 3D nature of these.

cute is always good

*where have i been you maybe asking? working, sick :(, sewing and preparing for a baby shower. i can't wait to show you all photos of the baby shower, it happens on Sat so check in next week for photos. i will also be sharing photos of the new awesome space i get to work in at home. everyone starting their holiday crafts?

we leave for MN on Sunday to visit our lovely midwest family. Yeah! we are taking Rudi as a carry-on so wish us, luck i'm a bit nervous but we could imagine going home without our little boy. happy friday!

killer things

these three things are wonderful. i want them.

i grew up using the lid of a pan to strain the water from what we were cooking. this method works just fine 90% of the time. i'm ok with that. the hubby grew up using fancy tools like cheese cutters and colanders. so we have a colander and i just feel like it takes up so much more room than it is worth. this one could bring me and my husband closer together.i've never been a big fan of these. they seem like a cute idea but how many of you actually remember to bring them out when guests are over? these ones i really like. they seem like they would feel great in your hand and they are so sublet and would go with most of your party decorations. (and they have nothing to do with beads. the men in your life with thank you)

i live in washington state and we grow apples. lots of apples and so many different kinds. my favorite are the pink ladies. but even though i like apple i have a hard time picking them up and eating them. i don't know why but i do know that if i had this graceful gadget i would eat apples all day.

these items are from the MoMa Store. Museum stores have the best stuff.

p.s. this is my 101 post. how cool.
