Happy Memorial Day

A piece of the majesty that is the US. This is right outside where I grew up in Keeseville NY, the beautiful Ausable Chasm. Thank you to our Veterans past and present for defending everything we love in the States.

Upcycle Jewelry Boxes

Upcycle Jewelry Boxes! Super EASY!

My family amasses large amount of boxes with store brands on them- by switching them a bit they are perfect for using with my own jewelry line.

What you need:




Paper Punch

(this is a scrap from my cricket, scotch glue stick, and the punch is a Martha Stewart Punch)

Trim the paper- and glue it on the box- DONE :) You can add ribbon, rhinestones, stamps, the sky is the limit.

En Vogue

Did you ever put together an outfit you were just so darn proud of? I did! To the Left is a cute little number I put together out of my closet for my dear friend Danelle's wedding (also pictured is my other BFF Jocelyn). Belting may be my favorite trend ever and it saved me from a OMG I have nothing to wear moment. Have you had a style triumph lately?

PS- this pic was taken by the very talented Kristy Akey from Kristy Mae Photography if you need photos in the north country she is your lady. She has a super discount for a lucky bride on her facebook page right now too!

My 1st Rubberband Ball

My desk was piling up with rubberbands after cleaning out a file so I started my 1st rubber band ball. What do you do with extra office supplies?

The Latest Book to Bite Me

Have you been bitten?

I'm a sucker for a vampire read and the latest in the Sookie Stackhouse series is out :) Dead Reckoning - Charlaine Harris's books are like candy sweet, not too long, and fun to enjoy. A little harlequin meets sci fi. These books are also the series that the HBO show True Blood is based on.

I'm a few chapters in but it won't be long until I'm done!

What are you reading?

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

How are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo?

The DH and I are pretty low key, maybe we'll sneak off to Moe's for lunch :) Or I'll make tacos for dinner....decisions....
