Today was a little harder than anticipated

The Ordinary is Extraordinary

I don’t actually have a lot to say this morning. It’s a Monday, and my weekend ended up being kind of short. I spent all day and into the night Saturday making cards, which was fun but also made the relaxing portion of the weekend (Sunday) really fly by. I don’t mind, though. It’s shaping […]

Burning Out

Lately I have had this strong, undeniable urge to get out of here. I’ve been fantasizing about laying on a beach for days on end, blasting through good books and sipping margaritas. Even sitting out by the pool will do. Obviously that’s not possible seeing as it’s February, but I can’t shake this feeling that […]

Spring Style

I have been craving spring. I have a short tolerance for winter anyway, but lately we’ve been having beautiful sunny days where the air is almost warm enough to feel spring like – but I know it’s still a little bit off. I miss the long, light days, I miss the warmth of the sun […]


  Alison: Ah yes, the bachelorette party. This is probably one of the aspects of bridesmaiding (I think that works well as a verb) that I’m most excited about. I love planning parties, and I enjoy going out to bars, so this seems like a great way to combine the two.  I don’t feel very […]

Saving Time, Doing It All

One thing I’m learning as I continue my journey into being more productive is that I have a hard time settling down and focusing. It takes me a while to really get focused on a task, so it makes sense to me that any tasks I can do in big batches – answering emails, writing […]

Happy Monday!

I’m getting a bit of a slow start this morning, but I wanted to tell you guys about how I think David and I achieved the perfect Sunday. We woke up, ate a delicious breakfast, bummed around, and then went to a friend’s housewarming brunch. We got to see some people we don’t see all […]

Ready for the Weekend?

I know I am! My plans include a masquerade party, working on an exciting new project, a housewarming brunch, and some major coffee shop time. What are you doing this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope it’s great!    

New Desk!

For the longest time, I have been doing my more ‘crafty’ work at the kitchen table. It sucked. My supplies were scattered all over the apartment, making it impossible to quickly find things. Every time I finished up for the day, I either had to clean all of my stuff up, or just stare at […]

Freelance, Month 7

This is the first month that I haven’t played chicken with the bottom line of my bank account, and I haven’t worried about where my next job is coming from – because I already know. I feel like I’ve mastered what I have on my plate now, and I’m ready to grow. The problems I […]
