Maybe I'll make necklace that says that.
I just found Non Pareil blog, and love everything about it. \
She recently posted, via Poppytalk, about this wonderful Etsy shop, Nea.
A wall hanging made from a vintage embroidery hoop.
What a fantastic and idea! My heart is hearting with the desire to hang this on my wall. Once my own Etsy sales are up, that's where my money is going.

I have such big dreams for this blog, but it's getting off to a slow start. I have such admiration for sites like The Function Key, Cup of Joe, Mochatini, Indie Fixx, Oh Joy, Etc.
I'm writing this from my cubicle. My cubicle is full of fun foam, assortments of glues and various other adhesives, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a bag, staplers, tape measures, yogurt covered raisins, and a cool Puma sneaker pattern I found in a recycling store.
I'm also drinking Awake Tazo tea.
Am I doing this right?
Anyway, here are some things I found/found on other blogs that I think deserve to be shared further:
I would do anything to have these hanging from a delightful little hook in my kitchen. Jessica Gonacha Studio, available at Indie Fixx.
I am also in the market for coasters, and these record ones are certainly in the running. Available here .
That's it for now. Time to go steal a reeses peanut butter cup from a candy jar on someone else's desk. Wish me luck!

I was eating ketchup with meat loaf (Thanks mom!) and as I was about to flip the lid on my trusty Heinz, I know an absolutely PERFECT ketchup hand. Can you even believe it? Have you ever loved such a thing as much as this? I don't even know what to do with myself.

Here's my latet post from 2 Modern:
During my routine internet sleuthing, I stumbled upon this website, and couldn't believe I had never heard of it before. I have always wondered how independent designers make things out of laser cut acrylic, wood, and metals, and now I know! Ponoko! I've spent all day long attempting to learn Illustrator, making more designs than can fit on my computer, slamming shut my laptop and storming out of the room. Let me tell you, it's been a roller coaster of a day. I seem to be having issues uploading an image, but maybe you'll have better luck!
It's based out of New Zealand, and is sort of like an Etsy, only you send them designs and they use their magical laser machines to cut them out, and then you can sell your products on their website too. Or anywhere you want, really. There are some really neat things on it! Take a look, let me know how successful you are!
