Overcommited; BUT happy. :)

Hello beautiful friends!
I've been 'slaving away' making new jewelries, getting ready for Holiday shows, among other {{REALLY COOL}} things i'll blog about later.

In the mean time, i just wanted to  C E L B R A T E  that i finished my WHOLE to do list today!!! And now i get to RELAX some and go hang out with friends, until tomorrow when the CRAZINESS ensues again.

Thus, i had a few moments to take pictures of HOW freaking COOL my hair looks today! to the post office to mail some orders! HOORAY!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
I hope you get a moment to enjoy the SMALL THINGS!

love and smiles,

Trees make GREAT accessories!

On the front page of Etsy just now, i found Oktak; a super cute coin purse and bag shoppe! This one, by far, is my favorite, but she has TONS of options you should see. :)

Have a nature-istic creative day!

FEAR in blogging.

Blogging has been uber hard for me, but inspiring as well. After taking Holly's Blogging You Way class, i've gotten a better grasp of the blogging world, but i still deal with the anxiety i've always felt with it. :( 

But tonight, while reading the 'up up creative' blog, [a creative business lady i both admire and feel inspired by] i noticed this little GEM in her bio;

"... a post-partum depression & anxiety survivor. if you found me because of that, definitely read through the archives, reach out and say hi, and more than anything else just hang in there"

...and i suddenly felt less alone in this blogging world, knowing that it's okay that I'm suffering through a lot of things in life, in general, and even MORE...that's it's OKAY that I'm SHARING it with all of you. 

My MAIN goal in my life is to inspire, and i do hope, by sharing my life and my struggles with all of you on this blog, that one day someone will read my blog and think 'hm...i feel less alone in the world too'. 

I hope you've had a BEAUTIFUL thanksgiving week, and i look forward to writing more openly to ya'll soon.

I hope you have a LOVELY thanksgiving folks!

Meeting Bakerella!

Meeting Bakerella; a story of happy inspiration

Last Saturday i had the PRIVILEGE of meeting Bakerella at my local Barnes and Nobles. 

She briefly told us about how 'Bakerella' started, and let us ask any questions we wanted. She was so lovely, and so was her mother [who was her photographer that afternoon]. After she talked to us, we all got to meet/greet her, have her sign her book, and take pictures with us. Granted, in mine she wasn't looking at my camera, but her mom got a picture of us that she will hopefully post on her Flickr account. 

It was SUCH a pleasure, and I'm so glad she finally came to Orlando to meet all her lovely fans in our area. [and a few other cities within two hours! a bunch of ladies DROVE hours to meet her!]

A couple weeks ago, some friends and i made out on 'easy' version cake pops. They don't look NEARLY as good as Bakerella's, but they tasted WONDERFUL. :)

It was a great afternoon, and very inspiring. 
I hope you had a GREAT weekend too!
smiles to you friends,

thinking about paint.

Thinking about painting; and how very much i miss doing it.
I don't understand how i can enjoy doing something so much, and yet, feel... trapped and overwhelled at the thought of it.

Maybe this weekend i can try picking up those brushes again and take them for a spin! 

I'm hoping i'm not the only one that feels this way. :D

Have a lovely day!

Decor8: Blogging Your Way!

Hello internets! 

Just checking in.

I recently signed up for Holly's [from Decor8] class, 'Blogging Your Way', and am REALLY enjoying it thus far! 

Since i was in NY for most of it though, i didn't FULLY get to experience and take the time i would have liked to for the class. 

BUT so far it's been pretty great. :) 
Have you taken any cool classes lately? 
I'd love to hear about them!

Beds, Bedding and how i WISH i was sleeping right now.

Man....i'm still at Barnes & Nobles, try to get things done, blog, etc, and i'm FALLING ASLEEP. It's quite terrible. 

SO...since i have BEDS on the brain, i'm figured why not blog about them right? This top one i would love to have be my room, i LOVE the way the light shines through, and the the layers of cozy bedding.

The rest of these beds i realize are children's bed rooms, but i find them so cleverly decorated, and inspiring. I would TOTALLY sleep in one of those rooms as well. :D

I'm hoping to catch some great ZZZ's tonight.
I hope you have a RESTFUL day!!
