Purr.. and a Blog Sale?

Happy Halloween, friends!

I decided to go up to Nashville for the weekend and visit the BF. She had some church-friend Halloween parties on her list, and she so kindly invited me up. She is a "speechy" too, and totally rocks some AAC equipment. 
As you can see, we decided to  "theme" it. Fighting crime all nite long. However, she makes a more convincing Batgirl, than my Wal-mart Catwoman.

I was unpacking last nite, and gave my closet a double take. There are several items I have that still have tags on them, tags pulled but never worn, or worn maybe once, that I KNOW I won't get around to wearing. I am toying with the idea of a blog sale.
Let me round everything up, and let you know!

Birchbox Bandwagon

I'll let you in on a little secret.
I take a quiet pride in the fact that I am fiercely independent. I march to my own beat. A doer and a thinker. Not easily influenced.
 It's also a flaw.

However, if you give me ANY sort of beauty product review, feedback on a product, persuasive story, samples - Bam!
Total Sucker.
I will fall for it every time.
AND buy two.

SO that's why after TONS of consideration I am joining Birchbox. Eeee! So excited!

What it a Birchbox? A samples lover's paradise. Fun stuff without the guilt.
Essentially, it's a pre-selected box of high-end beauty samples that comes right to your door, EVERY month, for $10. Kinda like a magazine subscription, that you can cancel at any time. You fill out a brief beauty survey, they pick out items for you, and it's mailed to your hot little hands.

Yes, I realize this is sounding like an info-mercial. It's not. I won't be getting Ginsu knives and a free Snuggie with my purchase. I've seen a few friends with their Birboxes, and the packages always look so lovely. Girly and lovely.
So lovely, in fact, I am nabbing the picture off the website for you to see.

These are just some the types of products you could possibly get. I think you get 4-5 a month, and even can get full size bottles.
Good stuff, right?

You've Got to Hind Your Love Away....

Sometimes it is perfectly acceptable to hide. Put a blanket on your head, and hide.

I've come home with a case of the aches.
Either I REALLY "worked it out" at step aerobics ( gurrrrl, I can work some "step-touch now) or the flu is whispering my name.

I wish I was crafting. I wish I was DIY'ing.

Tonight it's me and the blanket.
And a Robitussin induced coma.
Sniff, sniff.

Oh, the Power of Technology

Holy smokes, you guys are going to love this!

I was tooling around today, and somehow found out that Goodwill (yes, THAT Goodwill) is....

Now how on Earth are they going to manage that?

If you are familiar with the eBay format, this seems to be very similar, using the same auction format. However, after looking at the prices, shoooo weee. They seem a little steep. I don't think I will use it much, but it might be another resource to find "hard to come by" items!

Good Luck!

Whoops A Daisy..

A little sewing help, please.

I am sewing along, and then all of a sudden it's a RAILROAD of thread. Then, it goes back to smooth, even stitches. What's the deal?? I am not zooming fabric thru, nor have I rigged my bobbin wrong.

"Sew" annoying...

I had to.

Sugar Loaf

Ahhh.. finally.
Fall Break.
One of my favorite-est times of the year.

Every year, about this time, some of my dearest friends and I pack up a car and head to her family's cabin in the Heber Springs area. It's a weekend of laughter, squeals, red lipstick, staying up late, inappropriateness, and fun.

This year was no exception. Radiating strength and inner Girl-Power, we decided to pack up our old-school Timberlands and try to hike a local mountain mound, Sugar Loaf.


It was a real hike-walking up trails and then actual climbing the face of the rock.
It was a beautiful climb!

I promise I have 2 arms.

When we reached the summit, I was struck by how blessed I really am. So in awe of the glorious things the God has given us.

The Gang coming down from the summit. So thankful for them!

Is it just me, or is there an INSANE amount of chevron popping up in stores and in home projects?? Maybe I'm just dreaming it, but I see it everywhere. Beautiful, crisp, clean, classic stripes.

For your viewing pleasure, take a look at some of my recent faves:

Fully jumping aboard this chevron train, I've recently started a "chevy" project of my own.
(chugga- chugga- choo-chooo)
 A HUGE project.
Something that seems WAAAAAAY beyond my skill level.
It might take a few weeks. 
Or even months, depending on how much reality TV I watch patience I have.

Needing a smidge-of-a hint?
Well, ok.
Just a quick looksie.

Have you guessed it?
That's all you get, friends!

If It Ain't Broke..

You guys know the saying.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Remember this post?

Soo.. I made another one. This time it's gray/camel/ black snow leopard- tiger print-ish.

 Yes, this officially makes me dorky.
Dorky with a snow leopard skirt.
Boo yah.
