Yeah, I know. It's been looking like Christmas since before Halloween, but places are starting to put up their lights, so it's really starting to look Christmassy here :-) If you couldn't guess, Christmas is my ABSOLUTE favorite time of year. I'm a summer baby through-and-through, but Christmas makes me... Continue reading

Yes! Giampino's in Havertown. That place is so good. Thank you! I thought that stork was super cute, and he had to come home with me to make these invites. That paper is awesome, isn't it?! I love the gold polka dots on the mint paper. Love the invites and the thank you notes you made for your sister! I'm so sorry your sister had to be in the hospital right before her shower. Everything you made sounds really special, and again, the cards are so adorable. I'm sure she appreciated everything you did for her. Thank you so much for sharing, Anna!

My baby sister is having a baby! Naturally, I had to outdo myself, and make everything for the shower. Ok, not literally everything...but close. First up: the invites. Why buy them when you can make them, amiright?? Especially when you don't know the gender of the baby - much easier... Continue reading

Well. October flew by. Before you know it, it'll be CHRISTMAS. I know I know I know I know. But I kinda can't wait. I finally did the finish work for Beggar's Night! Just in time to put it out for one day, and then get out all my Thanksgiving... Continue reading

I totally understand wanting to keep that for yourself! When I was in NYC over Labor Day weekend, I was by myself, and decided to do something on complete impulse. I almost never do things on total impulse, but this particular incident turned out to be one of the most memorable experiences I've ever had. The next day, I had a blog post all ready to go with the entire story of everything that happened. Then, as I sat there staring at my computer, I got this overwhelming feeling that, no, this story is for me. I printed out my typed story, and immediately put it into my PL album, along with other things from that day. So, I still told my story, but I kept it close. It also fits in with my OLW for this year, so it ended up being a perfect fit for everything I'm documenting this year. I love your blog and your IG feed is incredible. I love seeing your adventures and I take notes on all the fantastic coffee places you post about - I, too, am a complete coffee addict, always in search of the perfect coffee shop!

Love these, Marie! Thank you for sharing! I was just thinking I needed to get my DD album together (well, at least get some supplies ready...), and start making my cards. Christmas will be here before we know it!!
Love Harry Potter and love your album! I was at the Wizarding World in February, and seeing your album makes me want to go back and see all the new stuff they added!!
Robin, all of it is so great, right!!?! Thank you! The moulding is absolutely perfect. Another one that was the first one I picked, and went, "Yep. This is the one." Have a wonderful weekend!!

“There is nothing like the silence and loneliness of night to bring dark shadows over the brightest mind.” ― Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Stories Christmas is hands-down-without-a-doubt my favorite holiday ever, but Halloween is a close second. The crisp air, the fallen leaves, the spooky... Continue reading

Thanks, Terri!!! It's SUCH a fun piece to stitch, especially on that fabric. How PERFECT is that frame!!!!!! As soon as I saw it, I didn't even look at any others - I knew that was the one!!!!!
Thanks, Robin! I love Plum Street Samplers designs - the colors and patterns are always so perfect and beautiful! Batteries are recharged! Have a great rest of the week!!!

Well. It's October. I don't know how, but it is. The month of September flew by so fast, and I'm already terrified that I'm going to blink and it'll be Christmas morning. September is always a busy month for me at work, which doesn't help as time flies on by.... Continue reading

Thanks, Robin! Smalls are the best to take when you're on travel. Williamsburg sounds wonderful! The one and only time I was in Williamsburg was for a high school trip. I hope to get back there one day - I love all the historical aspects of the town. Hope you had a great weekend and have a great week!
How is the summer over already?? HOW??? I feel like we just got out of that horren winter (side note: i heard through the grapevine that the jet stream moved, and we're in for winters like that ALL THE TIME NOW??????? i'm moving to costa rica.), and here we are... Continue reading

Hard to believe another week has gone by. Has it been as rough for you as for me? I don't even know why it was so exhausting, but it was. Happy Hour on Thursday night with some of the greatest people in the world, my band staff friends, was much... Continue reading

I have a lot of patriotic graphs in my stash. A lot. This one I've been working on here and there as I completed other bigger projects, just to keep me sane, since I picked a larger count fabric to do this on. I love doing anything patriotic. In fact,... Continue reading

Great tips! I also love traveling solo. I will definitely have to check out Airbnb for my next trip! My uncle told me about it a while ago, and seeing the success you've had with it, too, makes me want to give it a try for my next adventure.

I felt the same way about Naples, Italy. I never really warmed up to the city while I was there. I don't know if it was the people, the time of year I went, or what. However, I fell head-over-heels in love with Florence, which may or may not have been because it reminded me of Southern Spain - Cordoba, to be exact - which is my most favorite place ever. I also loved Sorrento and Rome, and a little town called Orvieto (the cathedral there was made with both black and white limestone, so it's striped!), but Naples? Eh. I'll pass.

It's hard to believe, but it's about to be mid-August. Summer is winding down, and I've only made it to the beach twice. Tragic. I do love Sundays, though. For some reason, they're less chaotic than Saturdays. At least for me, anyway. Sundays are for catching up on summer reading.... Continue reading
