I Got A Girl

Memorial Day weekend was epic. Lake, boat, drinks, Spaniards, etc. You don't get pictures because I was too busy with the general epic-ness to take any.

To add to the afore mentioned epic nature of this weekend, I was featured in an etsy treasury! This one is cheese-themed, which has stolen my heart completely. What is better on this earth than cheese? Nothing. Click here to check it out and leave some comment love.

Even after a very thorough scrubbing, I still feel incredibly lake-y. I hope that everyone else enjoyed some proverbial lake-tastic time of their own.

This year was my first visit to Taste Addison. I didn't have any of the food, but I did buy a pretty sweet hat, so I consider the experience a win. I didn't remember my camera the day of, but I wandered around a few days before the festival and documented the construction. Photos:

There are two boys (last name Johnson) in the living room right now fighting over the intricacies of Lost. Apparently we are unwittingly one episode behind. Balls.

The Way You Make Me Feel

I was recently accepted into an organization of amazing etsy-ers based out of the north Dallas area called...what else...North Dallas Etsy! These women are fiercely talented, with savvy business sense to boot. Why they let me in, I'll never know. That being said, I am totally honored to be a part of their group, and eagerly look forward to learning all that I can and having some solid etsy support. I had the immense pleasure of meeting some of these ladies this weekend at the monthly meeting. I will now proceed to promote the hell out of their shops (because they're awesome). LINKS!


Aside from the fact that I am in love with the Katamari vibe of this bouquet, these wedding creations are the bomb. Also, they were featured in the most recent Brides magazine. Talk about le-git!


Owls are hot right now. Plus, this girl totally knows her stuff. I watched her knock out a beautiful ring in about three seconds flat. I feel woefully ignorant of the intricacies of my craft compared to her wealth of knowledge.


I love the antique-y feeling of this shop. Every piece is so feminine and romantic. Plus, the earrings are all nice for sensitive ears (like mine)!


Um...can we talk about how freaking adorable these little dog coats are? REALLY FREAKING ADORABLE.


Now, this is an idea. Totally natural products for every day problems. I will most assuredly be purchasing some Buzz Off.

There were also two other new members at the meeting. I hope they enjoyed the experience just as much as I did!



I sincerely look forward to getting to know these women and hope to have some news of crafty shows to share with you in the near future! For now, I rest after my tiring day of sitting around my parents house eating chili dogs and playing with my mom's new (my old) Mac Mini. My life is very difficult, as you can see.
