Gold Locket and Happy Anniversary


The day before my wedding my grandma gave me her gold oval locket. It was a very special moment for me, because as I child I remember that locket as being one of pieces of jewelry she would wear every single day. I always loved opening it up and snapping it shut.


Her name is on the locket, so every time that I wear it I think of my beautiful grandma.


I have an idea of the picture I want to put inside...


I adore this snapshot ♥. Happy 62nd anniversary to the most wonderful grandparents in the world. I love you both so much.

Spotlight On...


Pocket TheSaurus is a new little etsy shop created by my friend Kira. I met Kira when we were both working at summer camp and attempting to teach children that there are crafts outside of god's eyes and boondoggle. Uggh. Anyway...

Kira, always so creative and crafty, finally has decided to sell some of her wares in her shop, focusing on little plushie pocket dinos. She will also do custom orders. For Christmas I custom ordered two 16 inch dinosaurs for my little nephews (and they loved them!) All of her dinosaurs are completely sewn by hand from eco-friendly felt and stuffed with hypo-allergenic fiberfill.






Head on over to Pocket TheSaurus and get your fix of little plushie little dinos!



Oh, here we are at summer camp going through craft catalogs. Kira is the second on the right and I am the second on the left, with blonde hair, eek!

Valentine's Tags

The other day I had a Valentine tag making party, I was the only member at the party, but it was a party nonetheless. (Well, if you look hard you can see a groundhog eye through the second heart) :)


I punched out sixty hearts and thought for sure I'd have a giant bruise in the middle of my palm from pushing down on my punch so hard. I'm happy to say my hand is bruise free, let the punching continue!


I piled up all the little hearts into my rabbit dish which holds my sweater clips. I saw the little mushroom container and just couldn't pass it up at Anthropologie. Maybe it is a bad thing that I live within walking distance of there...


A few of the tags which you can still find in my shop, happy weekend to you!

Things I Love Thursdays 4


Another frosty east coast day. Ugggh. Perhaps this list will make you smile and remember that the groundhog saw it's shadow yesterday which means spring is just around the corner. Yay!




Rear Window. D. and I are on a roll with the Alfted Hitchcock movies. Another winner, I highly recommend it for your viewing pleasure. Normally if we're watching a movie at night I fall asleep on the couch around ten o'clock, but this movie was so good I was glued to the screen.


Pretty, pretty perfume bottle. Anthropologie really is my favorite store.



I love, love, love this bright, cheerful, summery kitchen. Summer come soon!


My hands down favorite coffee of all time. You can only get it in Hawaii but I am lucky enough to have a sister living in the islands. I think this would make a fabulous birthday present. :)

Bedroom Update and Happy Groundhog's Day!

My bedroom does not have a headboard so I've been thinking of what to do to make it not look so boring. I saw this picture last year,


and I loved the lanterns and ruffle tissue paper pom poms hanging above the bed.


I found this pom pom kit at TJ Maxx for a steal, I thought I would use them for our wedding, but never did. I decided to use them for above the bed.


The kit was easy to follow, in fact you could have made them without a kit (it's just folded tissue paper) but the kit came with prescored paper.


I really like the way the bedroom looks now, the bed definitely needed something. (No, we do not normally sleep with stuffed animals on the bed. This is just in honor of groundhog's day. D. and I made these little groundhogs while we were dating.)


In case you're wondering, their names are Winnie and Winston. :)
Happy Groundhog's Day!

Snow, Snow, Snow

So far since the beginning of my semester, I have yet to have a full week of classes. Why you ask?


Well, when I look out my window, this is what I see.


An icy, snowy east coast winter, and this is what has caused two snow days and three two hour delays. I don't even know what is going on with the syllabuses. Oh well, it just means more crafting for me!


Lisa Hannigan while working on crafty projects. Wow, my iPod sort of looks ancient now. This fabulous clock/radio/iPod player was a sweet gift from my mother-in-law in my most favorite shade of blue-ish green.
