thought flurry


altered wine box (wine not included)


8x8 collages on stretched canvas


new postcards!


morning....

so here I am, after taking yesterday "off" to celebrate my one week wedding anniversary with my bubs...and by celebrate I mean, take care of Scribble who is slowly but surely getting better, though I think his medicine is making him a little "slow", having the traditional one week of marriage meal of macaroni and cheese and dessert at the Dairy Queen, and then....SHOPPING, not fun shopping just shopping.

we needed a vacuum.

so there you have it, a slice of wedded bliss.

As I sit here and type I keep thinking, what to write, what to write.

Do I obsess over America's Next Top Model, do I talk about the obsessive "man crush" my bubs has on Billy Zane???

(that one I think I should wait for a celebrity letter for)

Or should I blah, blah about what's new in my shop, well that one you can see the photos of, so there is no need to go into details, right? I mean you can go to my shop and see details.

No.....I think importantly I need to talk about this....I have spring fever.

yup, sad but true.

This week is a rare and sunny one here in Columbus, so with the sun, I have lost all desire to work, I just want to nap lazily and have lemonade...sit on my porch swing and wear skirts and walk to Starbucks....

Yes, those are the things I want to do, sadly.....we of course have no money for this life of leisure I am craving in my soul, the wedding and surrounding expenses to a toll, and now it's back to the "grind", OK...I am not complaining my "job" is a dream...making pretty things in my studio and getting to visit with my puppy on my breaks.

Oh, I am approaching my 2 year Etsy anniversary!!!!

Can you believe it?

I will be sending out a mailing early next week but wanted to tell all my loyal readers first....I will be holding a contest with a giveaway.....plus I am doing a 20% off sale in my shop, just write "anniversary08" in the message to seller and wait for a new invoice before paying.

Wedding bliss isn't much different than regular like, huh? lol.

I love, love, love that wine box. It's just gorgeous. Would make such a pretty gift.

I have spring fever too. Now if spring and life would just work with me.

beautiful wine box and postcards.
Congrats on your wedded bliss.
glad scribble is starting to feel better.
Spring Fever sucks. I so desperately want to go down to Savannah but have no money to do so. Come on tax rebate!

Love the wine box, J! And preemptive congrats on your impending anniversary. Wow, time flies.

I've got a bad case of spring fever right now, too. It's going to be hard when I have to go back to work.

Hooray for your two-year Etsyversary! Wahoo!

I'm ready for Spring-like activities too, even though mine wouldn't involve wearing skirts. Ha! I'm not much of a skirt-wearer. They would, however, involve Starbucks drinkies. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

Give Scribble a hug for me! I'm glad he is feeling better.

xo,

KB :)

Love the wine box!

The weather is finally getting warm here, so spring fever is finally setting in. Up until yesterday I felt like it was still the dead of winter, so I'm definitely ready to get out and enjoy the warmth!

Happy anniversary! My boyfriend and I are celebrating our 1 year dating anniversary this weekend... it's exciting, but boy does time fly.

Congrats on both your wedding and your Etsy anniversary!

I wish I had Spring fever. We really don't have Spring in Florida. It's generally 10 months of 90 degree weather with unbearable humidity and maybe 2 months of 80-degree weather, and then maybe-if we're lucky-dips down into the 40s.

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!

Hooray!

I think your one week anniversary sounded magical because sometimes the most mundane things in life can be magical.

No Spring fever here. It goes from kind of warm to wicked hot so there's no real transition. You do go through the summer burn though, when the 110 temps just make you want to curl into a coma.

I LOVE the wine box. Totally and completely.

I really want a new vacuum pretty badly. That makes me feel old.
