Treasury Tuesday: Just peachy

This color reminds me a lot of my Aunt Annie, I’m not sure why, but it does quite a bit. It also reminds me of orange sherbet, which, I adore…

Thus… the “Just Peachy” treasury was created!

Treasury Tuesday: Just Peachy

Things I would love to have in my personal collection: The nursery mirror from RevivedVintage (OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE), the peach resin flowers for jewelry by RemmysSupplies and the peach lace collar necklace from brancebound.

Oh hell, I want all of these, let’s be honest. I just wish I could afford to buy all of them! 😛

Check them out! What is your favorite color this spring?

Crafter, crocheter and now photographer?

Something I’ve learned while running an Etsy store is that your pictures tell the story. Your pictures need to accurately show the true nature of the items you sell. Mine? Were really not cutting it.

So, I talked my sister, brother and his girlfriend into being my models for a day! And for some reason, when I chose the date a week prior, I did not realize it would be hella cold and on and off snow showers all day. We did a lot of running in and out of the house to get warm and drink hot cocoa, but we did it and had fun! (I hope!)

I am in no way a professional photographer, not by any means. I’ve never taken classes (though would like to) and any education was from my 10th grade photography class which… lets be honest, was basically free hour.

Anyway, there are new items up on my Etsy shop! Go check them out! And check out my very amateur photog work. 😉 It was rather neat to have the snow for the shots!

Happy December!


IMG_2789Can you believe it’s December already? It seems like the summer was just yesterday! I had intended to put up our new tree after our Thanksgiving feast, however, as you know I was down with the sickness. So we got to put it up yesterday! I have the scars to prove it! I only got as far as putting it together (wrong the first time, they don’t come with instructions anymore, just numbers… HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT?) and putting the ribbon around it before I called it quits for the night.

So today while watching “Christmas Vacation”, possibly my second favorite Christmas movie (after “White Christmas” of course)…

Ok wait. Before I go any further… WAS I THE ONLY ONE NOT AWARE OF THIS?

No, seriously, I feel like a super idiot for not knowing about this.

Anyway, I decided to add ornaments while watching this fabulous piece of american artwork and entertainment. I took a few pics of all the homemade ornaments I made this past year:

These are my favorite as was something my great aunt used to make, we had a blast making these last year.

Well, it’s bed time for me! I went back to work today and so glad to be back! I was getting a little bit of cabin fever at home once I realized I had been stuck in the house for five days straight, so I was happy to be back in my home away from home.

I’m DYING to share our last “Craft and Wine Night”! It was a blast and we went to town! Hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday for that one!
