We’re on ‘Oh My! Handmade Goodness!’

August 1, 2011

Jessika asked me to contribute a bit about our wedding to ‘Oh My! Handmade Goodness!‘ to finish up their month of ‘Celebrations’ posts.  You can read a bunch (um, it was hard to stop me once I got going,) about our wedding and decorations, and how we aimed to make the whole day kid-friendly.

Really, most of the tips and ideas could work for any kind of party.  So if you have a shindig coming up, go check it out, as well as all the other posts from July.

It was so much fun to write.  As always, thanks for having me OMHG!

Agh going a bit bonkers here.  Work is busy (YAY!) and I’m rowing at the Head of The Charles Regatta this Saturday in a “sweeps” (8 person) boat (another YAY!)  Thrilled about both, but its been hectic-making.

Thanks for the Etsy Treasury Love!

September 22, 2010

I’m happy to tell you, a bunch of my prints have been featured in various Etsy Treasuries lately!

For those of you who don’t speak ‘Etsy’:

The Treasury is an ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery of handpicked items. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme or just whatever they like. The Treasury is not intended for self-promotion, but instead to acknowledge and share the many cool things for sale on Etsy.

I wanted to list them here, as each one was beautifully curated.  Click on the images to purchase/check out the goodies!
