So, I’m back on the crafting train! I’m in for the long haul with this really cute vintage tea-cup inspired cross-stitch (that doesn’t look like much in the photo, but will be awesome)
So, I’m thinking once I’m more comfortable with stitches that I’ll start making my own patterns. It’s really just pixel art if you think about it.
Anyone have pattern making program recommendations?

I’m so excited! I snagged my ticket for BlogPodium earlier this afternoon.
For those who don’t know, BlogPodium is a one-day conference for design and lifestyle bloggers. There’s a good mix of bloggers that attend from interior design, to parenting to photographers. I had a wonderful time last year, so I’m très excited for some of the new things for this year’s event. I’m most excited about TWO keynote speeches and the hands-on learning!
I love that I’ll be able to apply the knowledge I learn from conferences such as this to my professional life too. I really do have the best job.
Want to come with me? Tickets are available at www.blogpodium.com
Flags for days at Value Village. Ryan and I hit up Value Village quick on Sunday and sifted through other people’s crap. I came out with a pretty cool super hero t-shirt.
BBQ hangs on Saturday set this weekend off in the right direction. I can’t say I would hate if this weekend happened more often.
These are my bros. The boys. The men.
This is me (left) and my girls. The ladies. The women.
I should probably also note that we were kidless this weekend. It’s really not something that happens often. There’s usually always one hanging around, so having the whole weekend to ourselves was quite the treat.
We’ve also found out we’re MOVING! I’m actually pretty excited about this move. We’ll be able to make this place more of a home. And we won’t have to worry about pesky landlords. (which for me, is the biggest plus!) I’ve already planned a week off to do a few little upgrades to the house, so whoever wants to join me for a painting party is more than welcome!
Anyone have any tips to make this move fairly painless? Help!
Ladies (and some gents) do you feel as overwhelmed by Pinterest sometimes? Because shit dude, I certainly do. I feel completely inadequate compared to these Pinterest moms. I can’t keep up, so I feel like I’ve given up.
Maybe I just need a kick in the butt.
(note: Grammar police. Please tell me if I used the right effect vs affect, I actually just brain-farted and I have NO idea)
I’ve known for a long time that I’m not like most girls. I haven’t been dreaming about my perfect wedding since I was a little girl. I don’t want the white picket fence and the two storey house in the suburbs. I don’t want to be the perfect cook/baker/kid juggler/house cleaner/baby maker/stay at home mom.
Well, if I didn’t know that before, I can be absolutely certain of it now.
I forgot what day my anniversary is. WHO DOES THAT? For boys, this probably isn’t a big deal. But I’ve lost like a million girl points with this one.
Well, at least I’ll have some sweet lemon tartes from the local french bistro for dessert tomorrow… 6 days early.
So, I made an appointment to get another tattoo. To say I’m excited is not nearly enough. I’m THRILLED!
Ryan and I booked some time with Franz Stefanik. We’ve both been following his work on Instagram and Tumblr for awhile now. His style is right up my alley. I’m thinking I’m going to get something tea related, or budgies. I haven’t 100% decided yet. Here’s a few of my favourites.
So, I’m trying to finally upgrade my wardrobe beyond jeans and tshirts. I’m currently super into cardigans and button ups.
Here’s an idea of what I’m into today. This fashion thing is kind of fun.
