a few notes.

*Hello, Hello, Studio Calico's June kit is now up for preview. The Project Life kit is a particular fave. *Reflecting on this past mother's day...man, I am so blessed. *Strong coffee got me through this week. *Still pulling the LLP paper pack together. The center is a little preview. *Coconut fruit bars, flip flops, picnic on the deck...spring has been so good to us this year.

happy weekend friends. xot

friday faves

A few things that inspired me this week. 1. I'm a fan of "where I stand" selfies. I really want to recreate this one with the map I just scored last week. (pin) 2. This one is really REALLY good. There's so many of us in the ultra competitive crafting world. Surely we need a little bit of that competitive spirit to light a fire under our asses. I'll be the first to admit that I am a competitive person, not so much to "beat" the other person(s) but rather to spark that energy to do my best within myself. But when it comes down to it, there's room for all of us. (pin) 3. Shanna Noel's PL spread for the Bluegrass reveal makes me rethink my whole game plan. (pin) 4. Pops of color on neutrals grays and muted whites. LOVE. This is what I've been trying to achieve in my own home for years. (pin)

Happy Friday ya'll! Tina




Something I keep telling myself this year. It's soooo hard but it has to be done. Let it go, move on. It's Friday and I'm shaking all those negative vibes off. Who wants that kind of sh*t for the weekend?

time: 7:55 am weather: windywarm (kind of nice to walk out in a hoodie). drinking: my first cup of joe. eating: nothing at the moment but I may whip up some heuvos rancheros after this post. thinking: of all the ideas I want to put into action for the LLP shop. It's slow going but I think it'll be worth it in the end. needing: a haircut. badly. loving: brush scripting. have you signed up for Kal's class yet? kind of obsessed at the moment. loathing: that this coffee is not helping.

happy weekend! xot

girl loves friday

Happiness today? Let's see. First, it's Friday. Gotta love that. Second, the sun is out and it's suppose to be like this all weekend. Third, I bought the first round of plants and I'm ready to get my hands dirty ( a Memorial Day tradition) Forth, New Paislee Press Press Plate in the shop. It'll be 20% off through the weekend. Better yet, it's free to Paislee Press Facebook fans.

Fifth, I just picked up a new Canon Selphy printer at a garage sale for $25. Couldn't pass that up.

Sixth, LifeLovePaper is having a sale too! All stamps are 10% off starting tomorrow through Monday (ends at midnight) coupon code is MAY2013. starts tomorrow 12pm eastern.

AND I've got several NEW digital releases that'll be in the shop tomorrow as well. Pretty excited about these.

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! xot
