It's closed for maintenance right now but unfortunately the Ready Jet Set kits sold out a few days ago.
Hi Elise, I'm way behind on the cool gadgets and still use a really old Big Shot machine. Works just fine for me and super easy to use:

I am undeniably, inexplicably addicted to coffee. I realized the other day that all my clothes smell like coffee. I love it. Besides the taste + the jolt, I really enjoy being in coffee shops. That's where I work the... Continue reading

Hey there Jen, that is a great question! When A Beautiful Mess announced their Kelly Moore camera bags I was drooling - they look amazing. And a laptop fits in there too!

I've been talking about pouches, bags, suitcases, and now comes my favorite totes. For a while now I've been toting around a tote bag instead of my purse, especially when traveling. It's much easier to carry my laptop in, along... Continue reading
