No, I haven't, but I keep picking that one up at the bookstore, and putting it down again. I'll have to check that one out, too! Thanks, Catherine!

What a week, friends. What a week. It even started with a holiday! Then, on that holiday, it snowed in DC. And people forgot how to drive and act like normal people. Thank God for AWD and the guys at Firestone who fixed my tire earlier in the day on... Continue reading

There have been quite a few times over the last two weeks where I've sat down and gone, "I need to write something," and then never did. I had all the greatest intentions of filling you in on the last two weeks, but, as I'm sure most (all) of you... Continue reading

SO excited! I've been dying for the mini planner stamps! Love the whole line!

Yes, Susan! And all of those places, too! So much to do and see.....good thing the year has only begun!! I'm definitely excited to check out the city soon - I haven't been to DC in at least 10 years, so it'll be great to see all the museums again, especially once the weather starts getting warmer!

Thank you, Robin! I know of one shop in Alexandria, and I'm sure I'll have to take a trip to find Notforgotten Farm at some point. Thank you so much for your kind words! I always hope my crafty updates are enjoyed by all. :-)

I've debated whether or not to write a post about my pending adventure, and ultimately decided I needed to write a little something. Mainly because I've been gone for so long (packing is my life right now - I miss writing posts and sharing with you all!), and because I... Continue reading

Flat Whites at Starbucks are now my go-to drink. They're delicious - just the right amount of froth and milk in relation to the espresso. Love your Five on Friday posts!

Thanks, Courtney! He's a cutie for sure :-) December Daily albums are so cool and fun to put together. I went back and forth about doing one this year since I had so many things going on at Christmas, and I'm glad I ultimately decided to do it. Next year, I might just do one for the entire season, instead of doing something each day. I don't know. We'll see what happens when Thanksgiving rolls around in November!
Love love love this line. I'm a sewer/stitcher/scrapbooker, so this line is right up my alley!! Thank you for the opportunity!
Hi Robin! The gingerbread loaves were well received! One of my friends told me she rationed it, so she could savor every morsel over Christmas! Giving hand crafted items is so wonderful, isn't it? Handmade items are so hard to come by these days, so giving them as gifts makes it that much more special! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year! Enjoy your week!

Gorgeous! That hotel lobby is absolutely incredible - I love the trees.

And just like that, it's December 30th. Christmas is over, and we're gearing up for the new year. 2014 is gonna go out with a bang, and 2015 is gonna be wicked awesome. You heard it here first. But, before we get that clean slate on 1 January, here's a... Continue reading

My cat used to do the same thing! It was both cute and annoying at the same time. Haha. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Love your album this year! You make the most beautiful DD albums.

Even though I have about 47 things I should be doing, stitching seems to always find its way to the top of the list. Especially when it's cute Christmas stitching. I've been obsessive about reindeer for the past year, so this piece has been ridiculously fun to stitch. It's "The... Continue reading

Today marks the second of two office Christmas parties. It's the best day in the office. Ever. Food all day long. Not even kidding. From the second we all walk through the doors until the second we leave, it's wall to wall food. Breakfast, lunch, desserts, snacks, you name it,... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! Oh, that gingerbread is, so good. I've been debating about making more, but have been holding off. I may not be able to contain myself for much longer, though! Sounds like you have a great start to the Christmas season! I still have to finish all my shopping, let alone get any wrapped or in the mail. I hope you're able to get your tree up today or tomorrow! Enjoy your Sunday!! PS - you should definitely try that gingerbread recipe - you don't even need a mixer - just two big bowls and a whisk!
It's hard to believe we're already at 8 December already. I mean, really. There are only 17 days left till Christmas!! I need to start binge watching my Christmas specials. I still have some saved on my DVR from last year - 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (anyone else remember... Continue reading

Well, I'm already a little behind, but that's ok. I have photos mapped out for yesterday and today, so at least I'm on track to being somewhat up-to-date. Here's Day 2: I spent the bulk of the night sewing a nursing cover for my sister. I promised her one as... Continue reading

I am seriously determined to keep up with this album this year. Seriously determined. Having a photo printer this go-around will hopefully help with that. Yesterday was your regular run-of-the-mill Monday. Nothing crazy to report. I did continue working on a few projects, including making envelopes for my Christmas cards.... Continue reading
