Stashbuster Resolution (#1)


I love yarn.

This revelation should come as no shock to those who know me. However, I do love. I love yarn. I love buying yarn. I love making things out of yarn. yarn.yarn.yarn.

However, I have two giant tubs and many little baskets FULL of yarn from projects that I've done. And it's driving me nuts. So New Year's Resolution 2011 #1. I'm not buying any more yarn in the month of January. I need to put this yarn to good use. When January's done, I'll show ya'll the projects I've done with my stash o'yarn. And (hopefully) what little yarn I have left.

take that Pottery Barn!


Don't get me wrong. I love me some Pottery Barn. I really do. But c'mon. They were selling a NOEL sign for $150.00. Yeah. You heard me right. 150 bones. dollars. whatever. That's ridiculous.

Even more ridiculous.....

They are COMPLETELY sold out online. You know what that means, right? People were actually buying the sign for $150. A lot of people. So many people.

I'm appalled.

But also inspired. So my friend Melissa and I decided to make our own. And viola!!! Look how awesome it turned out!!!

best part--we did it for under $10.

Thank you Hob Lob for having these awesome wooden letters. Thank you Gorilla Glue for be oh-so-sturdy. Thank you Martha Stewart for your glitter. Thank you Pottery Barn for your outrageous prices--that will be extremely profitable for me!

And thank you Father Christmas for your season! :)

sorry for the quality of pictures. I cannot find my camera cord, so I have been forced to resort to my iPhone has my sole picture taking device. :)

inspired by angels


did anyone else watch the Victoria's Secret fashion show last night?? well I did. and besides it making me feel like a fat lard and me vowing to myself never to eat again...I was incredibly inspired!

in fact, I was watching it with one of my best guy friends and by the end of the show, I had him saying "I bet you could make that." or "I bet you could design something like that". ahhhhh, creativity. You never know when its going to strike.
I completely fell in LOVELOVELOVE with this outfit!!!!! Not even kidding. That sweater is by far one of my favorite things I've ever seen (but not in rainbow colors). guess what I'm making next??????? (one in gray, black and white...and maybe with a hood).
