Bryant Typography Graph Wall Calendar.

Yes, yes, yet another calendar! I just can’t get my fill. This time it’s the Bryant Typography Graph wall calendar that I’m in love with. It’s the overlapping type that does it for me.

Happy New Year Bunting.

New Years is a tough holiday to decorate for in my humble opinion. But I’m absolutely loving this sweet Happy New Year bunting from hello handmade. Purchase the template and make one yourself – you still have time!

So true, yet so difficult at the same time…


Christmas List.

Did you get everything you wished for this year? What was your best gift?

My favorites…
• a cushy new down comforter
a little k necklace (in silver)
• money for my Fence Fund
I Listen to Bands that Don’t Even Exist Yet poster
The Big-Ass Book of Crafts
• Miss Sixty black pea coat with red detailing

The Daily Eat: Amaretto Cake with Raspberry Filling.

You can’t go wrong with almond flavoring. You just can’t. Especially when it contains alcohol like this Amaretto Cake with Raspberry Filling.

Budweiser Holiday Commercial.

Budweiser’s holiday commercial is one of my all-time favorites. Enjoy! (And prep yourself for some delayed holiday cheer via me!)


Monday Goodness: Merry Belated Christmas.

I got to work at 7:30 and had to spend only two hours working off someone else’s computer before my beloved MacBook showed up via FedEx (and sporting a new screen and logic board)! Seriously the best Monday of the year.

Yet I still have mixed feelings because…
… I didn’t get to share my last few days of
Gift Lists
… I didn’t get to wish you all a timely Merry Christmas
… I didn’t get to get any work done while in PA

But at the same time…
… my hard drive arrived back to me intact
… I had a lighter carry-on on my 6:00 am flight back yesterday
… belated Merry Christmas wishes are nice none the less

Merry Belated Christmas!

I hope you and yours had a lovely little holiday. I’ll be sharing more about mine a little later on.

My Macbook has been hijacked by Apple for a few days to have a screen transplant. Which throws a big ‘ol kink in my posting for the week. As in it’s going to be non-existant until I get my baby back in 5-7 business days. And oh yeah, there’s a holiday in there which means even longer. One word: awesome.

Off to be Grinchy…



I can hardly resist these Strativarius sugar tablets! First, they’re sugar which I have a hard time saying no to. Second, look at those colors! Third, I love the idea of “break off as much as you want.”

The Daily Eat: Butternut Squash Risotto.

Risottos are awesome. It’s that simple. And this Butternut Squash version has so much potential!
