Happy Monday Y'all!

The Man and I are going to Portland on Wednesday for a week! I'm so excited to visit home, I haven't been back since my friend Kalie's wedding in September.

This week I used Essie's Matte About You top coat and little rhinestones…

Happy - very belated - Valentines Day!

I love Love Day. I love showing people I love that I love them. love love love.

But seriously, I think everyone needs to stop putting so much pressure on themselves to make Valentines Day a romantic holiday.  For the past few years I've been sending valentines to friends and family as well as The Man, and it has felt wonderful.  This year I wasn't able to send out as many as last year, so if I missed you I'll get you in 2015!
I wanted to share these earlier but i sent them out late, and I didn't want to ruin the surprise for my few valentines.  But now that the USPS tracker tells me they've all been delivered I'd like to share...

I saw this post on Oh Happy Day a while back and loved the idea, so, as I do with her wonderful crafts, I took the idea and ran with it.
Instead of using flat paper cut-outs I made 3D origami hearts.  My first one definitely didn't turn out so well but after I got the hang of it it was really fun.  It's great when you make those last few folds and it pops into shape!

I used an upholstery needle to thread the glittery poof balls onto the bakers twine, and used fun washi tape with images of pins to attach the letters.
I used conversation heart phrases for the garlands, it was hard to pick out who should get what, but I think I made the right choice on all accounts.
The best part was as the weekend went by all my valentines let me know they got their package by sending me pictures of their garlands!
I love sending people fun mail! I think I need to do it more often! What's next?...Easter cards?...Or maybe Independence day cards! Yeah! America Mail!

I hope everyone had a fantabulous Valentines day weekend!

The Man and I are celebrating next Saturday (we like to skip the craziness of going out on the 14th). Normally we use restaurant week as our Valentines day date, but this year it was so early we totally missed it!
More Hearts Hearts Hearts!

doodle day

Whenever I have a free moment I try to doodle, whether it's using a pen, pencil, paint or pixlr.  So I thought I'd start a new weekly post called "doodle day" where I post a quick drawing: cute, funny, strange or otherwise.




Hello you!

We're almost through the week!
Just keep hanging in there:

HA! :)

mani monday ~ valentines nails

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
We spent the weekend shoveling our neighborhood, making brisket, and putting the last details on my valentines.

Love day is one of my favorite holidays to do nails for.
Hearts, hearts, hearts!!
This valentines week I chose to paint little love arrows. 
I loved the way they turned out but after 2 hours of shoveling snow and 5 inch thick ice with soaking wet hands my nails were a mess (all the polish just peeled right off-weird right??), so next week I'll show you valentines day nails part 2!

I'm so happy it's finally Friday!
This weekend is for cleaning, tidying, organizing and just generally turning our pig-pen of an apartment back into a home!
