My Hubs and I are at the place in our lives where we relish time together. We love every single second of doing things, just the two of us!!! :)

We both ADORE sushi, and have been wanting badly to try Drunken Fish, a restaurant in the St. Louis area, for some time. We finally got over there, and we CANNOT WAIT TO GO BACK!!!!!!

The rolls were truly amazing, the drinks were exquisite, and the dessert ... OH MY GOODNESS!!!!

If you live close, give it a shot! It is a little $$$ but for a splurge night once in a blue moon, totally worth it. The atmosphere too is really fresh and hip! :)

So of course, all that sushi got me in a mood!


These are my newest 3x3 card sets. SOOO perfect for birthday tags, lunch box notes, and simple thank you notes. They come 4 to a box with homemade colored envelopes, and an adorable reusable paper box. :)

Can you say the perfect present???

a different angle

I have been having a lot of feelings lately friends about my life. I think mostly I am weighing on the reality that in just a few short days I will be 25 (YIKES!) It isn't old, and I don't feel old, but I feel ... VOID?? Perhaps that isn't truly a good indication of what is going on inside me either ...

I am one of those people that have lists and lists and lists of TO DO, and Bucketlists, and wants, and tries, and high and low, and never... and yet my lists seem to get longer, but the checks of satisfaction knowing I did one of those items seem to be so few.

How does one go about changing their life to not be about making another item to check off, but about checking off what is currently on the list??

I have accomplished much in my almost 25 (gulp!) years of existence, and yet it seems so small in the vastness that is this beautiful world ...

Not sure why that felt important ... but it did. :)

How do you make your dreams reality??

Button Close-up!

I wanted to give you all a close-up of the darling button I made for the Swag Bags at the Not Your Grandmother's Craft Fair over the weekend.

So, the button itself is 3D (with the blue popping from the brown, and the birds off the branch), and I think it would be just perfect on a book bag, reusable shopping bag, or even as a craft show accessory when you are browsing all kinds of handmade!

A complete and total success! I loved talking with all kinds of people, explaining my design process, decorating my booth ... it was just FUN and such a confidence boost!!!!

Special thanks to Jillian from A Little Slice of Pye for organizing the whole thing. It was not only a success in my book, but I truly hope there is another soon!!!!

Cinco De Mayo!

I love love love Mexican food, Margaritas, and Bright colors .... of course Cinco de Mayo is SOOO much fun to celebrate!!!


Tonight, we had a smaller then usual celebration {last year we threw a party}, and didn't even eat Mexican ... {it is just so high in calories} BUT, I had such a nice time with my Hubs.

Here are my Cinco De Mayo inspired designs. :)

These are 3x3 lemon and lime cards. Small, and perfect for a quick note in a school lunch box, or to send a smile to a friend. :)

I hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did!
