pay it forward-the sneak peak

so remember when i posted this? pay it forward? i finally got around to finishing the gifts, which will be in the mail shortly. here's a sneak peak!

i don't want to ruin the surprise, so once they're received i'll tell you what they were :-)


i'm so behind on everything at the moment. i had to go to DC for a work seminar, not my fun brandeye part time job, my real one that actually pays the bills. i basically saw trains and train staions...

a couple glimpses of museums (only if they were having an 'event')...

and the convention center and my hotel room.

necessary exTRAVagance

dave and i, and his bro and sister-in-lay, spent memorial day weekend in chicago. we had a blast and had perfect weather almost the entire time. we took a trip up to the andersonville section of the city to visit the shop, necessary exTRAVagance, that is selling some of my stuff. it was so exciting to see my stuff actually in a shop, and what an amazing shop it was. it is filled with all sorts of hand made, eco friendly houseware. heaven... and i got to meet the very sweet owners, travis and kelli.
this pillow might look familiar.

and these gorgeous quilts, one of mine is in there.

check out the shop if you are in the chicago area:

5416 North Clark Street
Chicago, Illinois 60640

and tell them i sent you!

we're (almost) outnumbered

so we found out we have two new additions to our "family." the fantastic mr. groundhog has two kids. they're taking over and have set up their home in our compost and under the shed. any idea how to get rid of them? they're cute and all, but i'm not so sure i want them living in our yard (and eating our garden).

6 years

6 years ago i married by best friend. i couldn't have asked for a better husband. love you baby!
