hello all! I’ve moved on over to Tumblr. Follow me here.
How was everyone’s christmas break? Mine was awesome, I finally got to have my very first white Christmas and it was such a nice change fromt he mid 70s weather I usually experience during the holidays. This year I really tried to buy mostly handmade gifts for my loved ones since it’s so much better for the economy and there’s just such a nice feeling that comes with receiving a personalized handmade item that doesn’t compare to something store bought. For my newest little niece I purchased a handmade doll knit by Grace over at Done by Digits. I even had the pleasure of meeting Grace personally at Patchwork when the show came to Long Beach. As soon as I came over to her booth I fell in love with the lovely dolls she makes an knew I had to order one. And so Grace was nice enough to help me create an adorably ethnic little doll for baby Bella. Isn’t she just adorable?
And back to work today as well. Trying to recoop and get settled back into life. Be back after a short commercial break.
Happy Holidays all! I’ll be off in the frozen land of Washington, DC for the holidays this year to celebrate with the boyfriend’s family. And oh man am I excited, have I mentioned that I’ve never actually seen real snow? And did I also mention that DC has been experience a flurry of blizzardness (yes. it is a word.)? Anywho I wanted to wish all of you who celebrate a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I appreciate that you take time out of your day to visit me and to comment on all my little happenings :)
I’ll meet you here in January! Hope you all have a happy, healthy 2010! Cheers!
Last week my seester and I FINALLY finished up her Save the Dates for her upcoming wedding! yayyyy!! I designed them and we cranked them out at home on her printer and had a mini assembly line going to get them all in the mail. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. The smaller cards have the hotel info on them an I thought it’d be cute to use some embroidery string to tie them up along with the save the dates themselves so all the guests received a little mini package of information. Yay for seester’s wedding now on to the invitations themselves!
