Fall Snapshots

My best friend's cozy guest room.

My best friend's birthday house party was loads of fun.

An amazing unicorn my friend gave me for my birthday! 
Made a most excellent addition to the bar cart. 

Kyle and Zoey watched back to back Star Wars movies while I cooked Thanksgiving dinner. It was the best Thanksgiving ever.

Craft fair at work, where I did surprisingly well! These big hearts are new. They are large versions of my heart pins, but meant to hang on the wall. I was surprised that I sold 4 out of 5 of them! I just placed an order for more wood hearts, and will be adding them to my Etsy shop soon.

The planters are also new. My friend Kristine built the boxes for me out of scrap wood, and then I stained, painted, and planted them. I LOVE the way they turned out!

New print!


Sometimes I want to make magical, psychedelic things in my sketchbook. And sometimes I want to make things that I would love to hang in my home. I would love to hang this in my home, and I hope you would too!

Available in a few different color combos because I just couldn't decide which one I liked the most! Right now I have 5"x7" prints listed, and I will list 8"x10" soon.

French Kicks


I used to download a lot of music, and sometimes it would be too much to actually enjoy all of it, so I would end up glossing over a lot of albums and they would never fall into my regular rotation. A few months ago, I decided to get comfy at work finally and load a bunch of music onto my work computer. I had my iTunes playing on shuffle, and "With the Fishes" by French Kicks came on. About halfway through the song, I thought, "Wait, this is awesome, what is this?" and ever since then, I listen to this album from the beginning to the end a few times a week. Cool story, bro.

Patchwork Edible at The OC Mix

The two pictures above are of items sold by Good Home Studio, a shop in Old Town Tustin, which I must go to immediately.

I bought the most amazing lavender caramel sauce from these people. So far I have only consumed it by the spoonful.

I bought a couple of cookies from Love Bites for Kyle and I to eat that night.

Desiree and her cute handmade items. I interviewed her last year.

My favorite ceramics by Andrea Luna Reece.

This homie knows a lot about tea and was a good sport when I asked him if I could take a picture because I enjoy his "old timey look." When it is hot outside, all I want is a big glass of iced tea.

Wish I had been there for 5:00 and 6:30.

This stuff by Barrington Blue is so awesome, but was a bit out of my price range for the day (it was either buy one pillow from her, or buy a lot of things from a lot of people). Her stuff looked like it was worth every penny, though. She makes everything herself from vintage fabrics. I must save up to buy something special from her!

Krista from Sisters of Summer, which was formerly Windsday Handmade. I'm liking the new name, it fits their vibe so much better. Plus, her and her business partner-in-craft, Kelley, are sisters!

Skinny Laminx Fabric Buckets


Last week there was a buy one, get one free pillow sale over at Skinny Laminx, and you bet your booty I took advantage of it. While I was browsing, I saw these neat fabric buckets that can be used for all kinds of storage purposes. But I super duper love them here as plant holders.
