Taking Stock

Lots of construction going on at my mom's house, but check out the awesome new deck!

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot.   Making: my way through 2 weeks worth of emails. Cooking: something for dinner tonight, no idea what yet as I need to go to the store first. Drinking: my morning cappuccino. Reading: emails. I finished the book I was reading last night. Wanting: a week of vacation to recover from my trip, haha. Looking: at my poor desk plant that was neglected while I… Read the rest ⇒

5 Things Friday

5 Things Friday

1. I am having a shoe dilemma. Specifically, a wedding shoe dilemma. I want to wear comfy, no-heel shoes in a shade of purple that matches my wedding colors. I’ve bought 3 different ballet slipper possibilities. One was the perfect shade of purple, but had toe cleavage and fit a bit shallow all around- felt like it would fall off easily. Those got sent back. One fit perfectly, but the purple was a bit off and I feel like the… Read the rest ⇒

5 Things Friday

1. The boy (fiancé!) and I had a walkthrough at our wedding venue with their coordinator yesterday, and picked out which areas of the Villa we’re going to use for our ceremony and reception. Verdict: outdoor ceremony on the Lakeview Terrace, indoor reception in the Chapel (it’s called that but is not actually churchlike, thank goodness). Plus she walked us through the timeline for the day and little details we need to think about as far as who’s in charge… Read the rest ⇒


Covers Reimagined

You guys know by now that I am a fan of reimaingings – of fairytales, of famous posters or art, that kind of thing. Combine that with my love of books, and you have a new series and passion project over on my design blog: Covers Reimagined, where I’ll be doing my take on new covers for some of my favorite books. First up is a sci-fi classic and it is live as of this morning! You can click here… Read the rest ⇒

2015 Shop Charities

2015 shop charities

Last year, one of the things I decided to do with my shops was donate a portion of proceeds to a different charity or cause each month. Over the course of 2014, between the shop proceeds and my own contributions, I donated around $400 to worthy causes. However, dividing that up between so many different groups meant each group didn’t really get that much. This year I’m changing it up. I’ll still be donating a portion of shop sales, but… Read the rest ⇒

Bits & Pieces

Bits & Pieces

1. Three-day weekend coming up, woohoo! And then once next week is finished, I have a little two-week staycation/break from work scheduled so I can turn 30 in peace and get some much-needed down time. To say I’m looking forward to it would be an understatement. Anyone want to hop in with a guest post for the blog while I’m away? I’ll schedule probably TTT and maybe a book review, but blogging will be sparse those two weeks (Oct. 20-31)…. Read the rest ⇒

Double Down

The AC Vent

Today, I officially become a two-blog gal. I used to have a blog on my freelance site, but it went dark a while ago because I just didn’t know what to write/how to blog/how to keep up with it. I feel like writing Dragonflight Dreams the last few years has taught me some of that, and I actually have ideas for it now. So I’ve brought The AC Vent back from the dead. You can find it here, if you… Read the rest ⇒

5 Things Friday

1. The puppy is high maintenance for the next two week. She got herself an ear infection, and also apparently dogs get seasonal allergies just like humans do. So we have an ear cream, a special shampoo, prescription pills and Benedryl. And most of those have to be attended to twice a day. Yeah. Fun times over here. Sienna is not loving it. I keep telling her she’ll love it after her ear and itchies are all better. She remains… Read the rest ⇒

Busy Little Bee

Gold Clover on Green Tee by Dragonflight Dreams

Now that the craft show is past, I’ve been attending to a lot of the other to-do list items for my shop. First up, I’m finally getting photos of the made-to-order shirts on an actual person! Witness: Yeah, that’s just me wearing them. I never know what to do with my arms. I only have photos of the size mediums I had printed so far (note to self: always print a size medium for the example shots for made-to-order shirts),… Read the rest ⇒
