it has been a long time since i have posted, and i still haven't gotten anything together on the picture book blog. things have been beyond crazy in my life lately and i apologize! things should turn around mid october for me and i will try to get my blogging in order once again. for now check out gemma's awesome illustrations.
i am going to work hard over the weekend to get the new blog set up. i've received a great response from people who would like to be involved. please send your name and e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org so i can contact you with further details. this is going to be so fun!
yes, ladies and gents they are finally here. last summer during my internship with fossil i was able to sneak a peek at some prototypes of the men's footwear, but the women's shoes were still in the design stages. take a look here. i want this pair of boots...cough...cough...christmas present...size 7.5 or 8 ....cough... cough
this past saturday i threw a baby shower for my wonderful sister-in-law, jen. everything went wonderfully! her friends are some of the nicest people i have ever met :)
here are some pictures she took at the shower (she is a wedding photographer, of course i let her do the picture taking)
today we are celebrating five of our nieces and nephews' birthdays! our gift to them is a trip to a rangers game in august, so to give them something to open and hold in their hands today, I made these little goody bags of peanuts and cracker jacks with a tag in the front explaining what it is for. Although my suspicions are that my three year old niece will be clueless about the game, but be totally excited she got a bag of treats :)
our guest room furniture at the moment is comprised of a box spring, a mattress, and a metal bed frame. if you are in a similar bind here are some headboard ideas that you can pull off for cheap!
find two pieces of plywood at a hardware store and stain away
use wallpaper or a block of color to create a headboard
cover a couple of canvases in fabric using a staple gun and mount above the bed
