I had gold up everywhere from New Years Eve, and figured I could keep a little of the gold and add whatever spare pink toned paintings I had lying around. The big one in the center is my roommates. She left it when she moved out and I just think it’s too pretty to not display. The rest are mine, various valentine cards, and just some pretty little things.
I can’t wait for Friday!! Hope you all are having the loveliest month!
Alright, I know it’s not quite February but it’s close enough to start bombarding ya’ll with lots and lots of hearts right? I recently dressed the Story window for February/Valentines, and my statement creation was a heart pinata! Here’s some progress pics of how it was done:
I’m so happy with how it came out! Given enough time, cardboard, and tape…I think I could go pinata crazy! Hoping to squeeze in a few more (little) valentine’s day inspired pinatas soon!
I wanted to share a little peek of some late night crafting. I am working on the upcoming Valentine’s window for Story and I’m so excited! I LOVE valentines day!! I think it’s the happiest! And if you’re one of those people who hates valentines, no worries, I love it enough for everyone! I’m hoping to make a big statement with this one! Bet you can’t guess what it is, right?
I love combing through all of the etsy shops! I thought I would share some of my current favorites! These ones in particular were on my christmas wish list (and some I may have added for a january wish-list…)
This sweet delicate bee ring
This shop has the most beautiful illustration prints ever!! I’m in love with everything!! This unicorn is amazing!
I need a 2014 wall calendar. This one is crazy cute!
This princess-style coat is the prettiest
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I can’t believe it’s already 2014. Everything feels so new, and fresh, and approachable right now! Cheers!
I feel like I had all the time in the world in November and December has just been the total opposite. I only planned on two creative/crafty deadlines this month but somehow all these opportunities came about and I just couldn’t put my needle and thread down. I can’t complain though, because I would so much rather be busy with fun, creative work than any other kind. I just wish I had gotten to spend more time planning for christmas! I spent all last night sweeping up scattered bits of thread and fabric scraps and finally strung up some pretty lights in our room. Lights really do make a difference!
Anyway, here’s some photos of everything I’ve been working on this month.

Have ya’ll been having a crazy busy month too? I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas!
I can’t believe we’re already really into December!! Ahhh I have so much to do! This is going to be me and Roos’s first Christmas away from our families, which totally bummed me out at first, but I think if we try we can really make it something special. So we need to jump on that holiday-spirit train quick!
A week ago we ventured out and bought our first christmas ornament together. Baby steps.
