Hey snoopies!

The window is open, and a hot humid breeze is hitting me. What's going on??

Ugh, you know when you wake up with a headache and take advil and it still won't go away and you really don't want to get up off the couch to pack to go to Arizona and polish keychains to bring to Ginger Root and throw out a zillion boxes that are just stacked up in the hallway? no?

Anypoo, I recently discovered that Jcrew has the best backpacks, but they are hiding in the kids section!

And I'm not sure if this is in the girl's section, but I want it. Real bad. 

And so ends my backpack lusts.

there goes the neighborhood

Well, I guess I'm one of those people now who can get mad at a big website for stealing my design! Cool?

I was pointed out today by a fellow jeweler (Charlotte Burkhart- really cool stuff) that Mod Cloth has a bike necklace for sale that looks JUST LIKE MY OLD BIG BIKES. Am I crazy to be upset about this? Is a bike just a bike just a bike? I mean, it's freakishly similar. 

Here is mine: 

And here is theirs: boycott?

Friday Night

hey kiddos. I thought i'd take this time to write a little bloggidy blog! It's friday night, my mom is visiting, B is out of town on biz. Mommy is knitting socks on the couch. We are watching Damages on Netflix from the beginning. I made a hot toddy.


Boil water.
Put honey in mug. A cute mug.
Pour in hot water.
Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Squeeze a slice of lemon, plop it in.
Add a splash of yummy bourbon. Or rum. Or anything.


I wonder if we can finish this whole season tonight.

So, what are you up to?? Hmmm? I'm obsessing over how many things I'm selling on right now. It's horrible. It great and horrible. Everything is stressful.

Anyway. That's my diary entry I guess!

Ummm and I made these.

Phone Cases

DC illustrator Elizbeth Graeber made our Stitchtagram header and some other images and texts for the site. 

You can also buy cell phone cases (among other things) with her illustrations on them, and I am DYING. If I didn't just get one from my brother I would be buying these in a second.

do you hate me?

please don't hate me!! i promise i'll be better at blogging!

Let's see...what do you want to hear about? ME??? well, fine.

So things are still pretty crazy busy around here. which is fab. and tiring. speaking of fab, i should be having another sale on Friday (which you would see in the preview email if you are signed up!) So if it's anything like it was in November, which I'm hoping because of V-Day, things are gonna get wilddddddd.

And my mommy is coming to visit for a few days on Thursday, so that will be good! And I have to make some more pillows for then at the end of the month I'm off to Tuscon for the gem show!! THE GEM SHOW. of life. Every year there is an enormous jewelry/stone/everything show. In Arizona. Am I repeating myself? Needless to say, I'll have sooooo many new and exciting stones to work with next month!! Ahhhh scary.

What ELSE. Tell me!! Let's see, I'll go through my instagram pics to job my memory..

This guy had an orange backpack AND an orange bike. I hope he realized how current he is- isn't tangerine the color of 2012?

Ben and I have been seriously in to Veronica Mars.

First of all, how is Kristen Bell SO EFFING CUTE. I mean, come on. Secondly, if you've never watched the show, watch it. Super good.

I need to list this ring!!! It's oxidized silver. I'm in love. 

Anyhoo, that's it for now. Show me fun things to distract myself with!

I can't believe it's been a month since I wrote! WHAT HAPPENEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. I guess the holidays happened. And craft fairs. And Stitchtagram.

Well, here are some updates, in Instagram form:

New Years Eve with the ladies!!!! (I'm on the bottom right! with the funny bangs)

The bar we went to was having a St. Germaine special, and if you got two special cocktails you got a cocktail book and mini bottle of the deliciousness!! I was in heaven. 

For Christmas, I went with B's family to Puerto Rico! (I am going backwards in time, if you haven't noticed). Here is a shot of some fluffy clouds when we got home.

We saw a horse in a truck.

My turquoise heart ring by the ocean- doesn't it look like I'm in front of a green screen?

Rainbow when we landed.

And to top it all off, Ben and I got bumped to first class when we flew there! It was MAGNIFICENT.

SO in conclusion, happy new year, and keep your eyes peeled for new exciting things!!!
