February 24, 2012


I've had my eye on this scarflette on Etsy for about 2 years! It was one of the first things I put on Pinterest. And now I get to wear this beauty thanks to a birthday present mix-up which turned into this. Thanks, Mom!



Keeping up with my accomplishments at a glance sure looks like I've gotten a lot done!

Under Our Willow Tree


I have been stuck as to how to finish off my pendants and then decided to make sliding knot cords for them. That way they are adjustable and I don't have to worry about sizing them. Of course I needed a photo to remind me how to make them so I put my iPad on an easel which worked like a charm. I just wish that on Crafty Thursday my neighbour wasn't attacking firewood with a chainsaw because I had a migraine. That was not a good part of the day but the rest was fun and productive.

Jamie, love the scarf! Curious about the mixup but it looks awesome on you.

Shannon, that board is fascinating. What are the $5 for?! So curious! Way to go on all the accomplishments.

Mom thought she had ordered me some stuff on Amazon but hadn't and so she told me to buy myself something I wanted - I immediately thought of this! I love it and, in fact, am wearing it right now!

Shannon, look at all those pins! Woot! And yep, me too, I immediately got curious about the $5 bills!

Suzie, adjustable length is freakin' brilliant - as is the iPad on an easel! What a cool way to have a reference right there

Oh isn't that fun! I love getting to shop like that. Mom did that for me for Christmas and I had a blast. You chose well, it looks fabulous on you!

Thank you Jamie, I seem to be having some breakthroughs despite stress and migraines which rocks.

Beautiful scarf Jamie! It's so totally you and how awesome for it to pop up and back into your life and now on to you! That's awesome.

I love how you put your iPad on an easel Suzie; I mean talk about cross-tech amazingness!!

The $5's are when I've made it to the end of the week with money in my wallet, I put it on the board. I haven't quite decided what to 'do' with it yet, save up for something, spend it, pay off debt, etc; but it's cool to have the visual & physical reminder that it can be done!
