Valentine's is just around the corner!

Some fun valentine's finds I enjoy!  I made this using the poster sketch tool...and now I'm sharing it with y'all seeing as I never get a treasury spot....

fashion statement

I'm a groomsmen (that's right...groomsmen! yay!) in my brother's wedding this summer.  And it was decided that I would wear a black version of the bridesmaid dress (which is actually super duper cute...go figure!).  I had a dress fitting this morning...and lucky enough for me the dress shop is only 5 blocks from my house.  So I, of course, just walked to the appointment this morning.
But, this is Minnesota.  It is winter.  It is 3F, -9F with windchill (-16C/-23C for all the non-americans and scientists) outside.  It is cold, but it is sunny...aka it's-not-as-frickin'-freezing-as-last-night-walking-to-my-car-after-work-where-my-nose-hairs-froze-within-30-seconds-of-being-outside.  So, like any good Minnesotan (nee Canadian), I wore thick wool socks this morning for the walk. Let me tell ya...nothin' says sexy like a cute knee length dress and wool socks.

Spice girls

I discovered a blog written by a friend of mine yesterday...and could not stop reading!!!  I have been a bit lackadaisical  on writing on this one, but I think I'm turning over a new leaf and I'm going to attempt to write more.  This is not a new year's resolution or anything, so I don't need to be penalized for having already failed, but I also can't write that often about crafting.  Not that it doesn't take up most of my spare thinking time, it does.  But mostly because who wants to read those thoughts?!?!  So, I've decided/been inspired to write more about my random musings outside of crafting...hence the slight change to the blog title.  Here goes....

While I was getting ready for my day job this morning I was thinking about my hair.  I love my hair.  It's short (longer than ears, shorter than shoulders) and kinda punky cute.  I used to have long hair (shoulder to slightly longer counts as long in my world) and cut it off about 2 years ago.  Partly inspired by a friend who I totally have hair envy of and partly because I needed a change.  The one thing I miss is being able to pull it back into a ponytail when I'm having a bad hair day...there just isn't that option with short 2 days ago, where I realized a couple hours into my day that oops! I had not completely rinsed all the conditioner out so the back of my head had this weird greasy feel to it all least it was soft.  But a ponytail would have come in handy...for that and for playing sports...short hair does get in your face.  If I was a spice girl, I guess I would align with sporty spice...although really I strive to be scary spice. Because come on, who wouldn't want to wear platform boots and leopard print pants!?!? Really.

Holy Crap....

I had an item make it to the front page of etsy!!!  How cool is that?!?!  The views on the item went from 5 to 150 in the span of like half an hour!!  So at least more people know my shop now!!  It's so hard to get a shop noticed in the sea of etsians...especially when I'm not exactly the best promoter...welcome to one of my new year's resolutions...

Ok, so this is the item...but I don't know why the picture is sideways...just turn your head to the right to see it properly.

And, I got a convo from somebody yesterday asking if I do wholesale on my wine maybe that will pan out into something too...although I'm still undecided how I feel about wholesale, but I guess I'll never know until I try.

Okay, I think I'll just ride high on these for a bit...
