Happy + Friday

Yeah! It's the weekend and we are suppose to get a HUGE snowstorm. Finally. If it's going to be winter I want snow on the ground dammit, and lots of it.

Letterpress makes me melt! Check out these fantastic winter inspired card by Paper Lovely:

Adorable! Not sure how I have not found this site before!

Happy Weekend!

Obsessed with pink and orange

I love this color combination. The bright colors together makes me smile. Pink and orange threw up at my wedding and now in my basement studio. What else was I suppose to do with the polka dot fabric?

I am storing my sister's sewing machine - until they move home - and I am going to put it to good use. I know the basics of sewing. One would start off with something simple, like a pillow. Not me. I am going to make this quilt from Manhattan Craft Room if it kills me:

This is going to be my newest "how to" project (aside from planning The Boy's wedding - more to come on that).

Happy Thursday! (Who am I kidding? Friday is the only day that deserves an exclamation point).

Happy Thursday.

New Years Resolution gone bad

I am the queen of New Years resoultions. I will lose weight, post more on my blog, eat healthier, yada, yada, yada.

I am also the queen of never following through to the so called resolutions.

I am going to start right now and resume writing on Simple Stripe. It has been a nice creative outlet for me, and I need that back. My creativity was drained after our wedding. I am re-charged and ready to roll.

I'm back. I'm bad. And I am ready to make Simple Stripe super inspirational for 2010!

Thanks for waiting patiently!
