If you can remember back a year, I pondered the conversation I would've had with my younger self in the essence of turning a quarter of a century. A month ago I turned the big 2-6. Last year's birthday was really hard for me for a number of reasons I've already discussed. But I have … Continue reading Birthday shenanigans: Sip & Paint
*knock, knock, knock* "Heather?" Yes. I'm alive. Please know I haven't forgotten about you little bloggy blog of mine! It has been quite some time and in between work-outs, trying to keep up with my shop, working and trying to keep my social life at least a little bit afloat, I've spent the remainder of … Continue reading Holy crap, I just sewed a gown!
I woke up quite a bit before my alarm this morning and was feeling very energized despite the lack of fitness this weekend (talk about a huge slacker). Perhaps it was the abundance of people I got to see this weekend that made me feel super chipper. I had quite a lot of fun seeing … Continue reading DIY: Vinyl Mugs
Something I've learned while running an Etsy store is that your pictures tell the story. Your pictures need to accurately show the true nature of the items you sell. Mine? Were really not cutting it. So, I talked my sister, brother and his girlfriend into being my models for a day! And for some reason, … Continue reading Crafter, crocheter and now photographer?
Hello lovelies, it's been a while, eh? I wanted to share something I made a bit ago. I don't know about you, but I have accumulated a lot of make-up and brushes. I'm also rather obsessed with my monogram. I needed something to hold all my eye liners, brushes and mascara. When I came across … Continue reading DIY: Monogram Make-Up Brushes Pots

Just think about it the … Continue reading This is NOT who I am, this is NOT OKAY

But I hope you all had (or have if you're like me) a great Thanksgiving and celebrated all your blessings this holiday season! I'm very blessed to have each and every single one of you who read … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
We found out my cousin was going to be a Daddy recently and assisted his sister and my cousin, Courtney (featured here a bit), in throwing the expecting couple a baby shower! The both of them are quite the world travelers and have some amazing stories of their adventures. For the first year, Mommy and … Continue reading DIY: Little Jetsetter Baby Shower
We're hunkering down and preparing for Sandy. State of emergencies have been issued, people are running amuck through the grocery stores, people are buying the usuals (milk, eggs, water, gas)... and I'm sitting here eating and crafting. As usual. It's crazy to think that within a few days, there will most likely be no leaves … Continue reading DIY: Have a BOOty-full Halloween!
Last Saturday was the big party day for Michelle! After weeks of planning and preparation, it was a fabulously successful day but over far too quickly. Family from both sides came up from North Carolina, Virginia, etc to celebrate the couple and we partied in the humid Maryland air until we couldn't anymore. And, boy … Continue reading Country Chic Party: Neon-colored Mason Chandelier
