Well, it's about that time of year again and I thought that to make things easier for my gift givers, I would make a little birthday wishlist for them. I am also currently stuck in the house while braving yet another snow storm. This craft pad is full of cute little embroidery transfers and is on sale at Amazon for only $5.18! Okay, so the cover is a little bit dorky but this book is full of tips for starting your own crafty business. The more obscure the craft supply the better, and these washi paper tapes fit the bill. Also any little millinery supply from the etsy shop Caramelos, like these cute cotton spun mushrooms, would be perfect. I'm imagining an entire outfit around these sunglasses where I look like an early 1960s beatnik or a Bob Dylan devotee. I saw a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers at Marshalls this winter for only $60 and I am kicking myself that I didn't buy them. I started seeing these heart tights around on the blogs I frequent and I must admit that at first I didn't care for them, but I really like them now and I enjoy adding to my tight collection. They are pretty easy to come across, like on Urban Outfitters (I've got to help some people out here :) And finally, this Trader Joe's Lavender Salt Scrub, I saw it the other day at Trader Joe's and it smells just like the summertime and is inexpensive, even better. Oh, and while we are on the topic of Trader Joe's, their Jojoba Oil would be a fun present too. Well, I hope I've helped everyone out with gift suggestions. *UPDATE* Since I am still in the snow, I have done some perusing for the perfect cropped black pants to go with my Ray Bans, and I found these slim cropped pants on Gap. I'd say they fit the bill!

I just survived my first blizzard, the Baltimore area received a record snowfall of 30 inches! Whoa, that is wayyyyyy too much snow. I spent my day off shoveling the snow only to turn around and see that the freshly shoveled walk was once again covered in snow. Oh, how irritating. I then decided to go inside and spend some time crafting Valentines but that didn't last long since I was experiencing throbbing pain in my neck and back from shoveling all of that snow. I had to retire to my bed to rest but I was sure to take pictures of my crafting supplies. As you can see I am a big fan of Martha Stewart crafts. My sister gave me this Martha Stewart flocking kit for Christmas, and I'm going to try it out on my little Valentines.
