Happy New Years!

I thought I was going to do a 2011 year in review post, but I got bored with that and decided just to move on to the next year which seems so much more exciting than this past one, right? I know everyone and their cat and dog has posted this video, but it's wonderful....

Happy New Year!

PS It's my 29th birthday today, so look forward to a post about my day! Ciao!

Dolly Parton vs Maple Syrup

Today is Friday Saturday, and I totally missed out on Fill in the Blank Friday....
It's been a rough day, but yesterday was good so I'll fill you in:

1. The husband and I ate at Cracker Barrel and I had french toast. They give you these mini bottles of maple syrup, which I totally took home with me.

2. We got pretty much all of our Christmas shopping done!

3. We wrapped presents all night while watching Harry Potter and Edward Scissorhands.

4. Clint got me a Pillow Pal raccoon for Christmas that I named Twinkie. 

5. I finished all of Princess Jellyfish, and it was super funny and cute!

So I plan to forget Friday ever happened and keep on truckin with my week.

PS I keep hoping Cracker Barrel will have awesome Dolly Parton stuff, but they never do and I'm always disappointed (but the maple syrup is yummy!).

PSS My sister is at the hospital trying to have a baby right now. I have to work, so I can't be there. :(
Another why working in retail is sooo not fun/cool.

That's What She Said Sunday

I'm hungry, but I'm too tired to make any food. But I did just eat a million cake pops and now I feel sick....this is what you should tell children when they want to stay up too late. It's just a like a re-run of your least favorite episode of your favorite tv show....

PS I love ugly Christmas sweaters. I have a whole collection and I am not ashamed.

For Sale: Something Cute Wants to Come Home With You!

 Say hi to Sherri.
I just listed my first actual doll for sale! Last year around this time I didn't have a job and I made several dolls that had funny shaped heads as gifts for my nieces. I have lots of fun making and designing them. I'm hoping in the future to add more details and outfits you can buy. I also really enjoy making up funny little stories and names for them. Although I am a novice sewer, I feel like the more I make, the more I learn.

Please take some time to check out my etsy store! I appreciate it!

Gift Guide & Trends I Love

I was browsing the WhoWhatWear site, and noticed a few things that were right up my ally.
This gift guide was made for me, well obviously the super rich me....but anyway, super cute.

I'm really loving the torn jean and rolled hem trend that is going on. I think it's super cute and shows off your shoes.

SJP is rocking some awesome bright tights! I love this color! I've mostly been wearing grays and blacks, so I think I need to branch out a little.

What trends are you loving?
Any fun gift guides you like?

That's What She Said Sunday

Do you do any holiday baking?

On My!

This week I have a couple of spectacular things to share:
 I purchased this cute Peggy bag from Kara's Clearance sale today!
 I can't wait to snatch up one of these cozy hand stitched pullovers from Stuff Kara Made.

 The other day I got a message saying my print was featured in a treasury! I was super excited!

I really loved this canvas print from Kellie Rae Roberts.

What are you loving this week? Anything spectacular happen?

Today is for PANDA Sweaters and Puppiness

Today I am trying to enjoy the little things because I know once I get to work it will be a tad stressful...but I'm trying to take it all in stride. 
Things that have made my day so far:
waking up and turning the Christmas trees on
making coffee and drinking out of my Christmas Cindy Lou Who mug
being able to wear my PANDA sweater (pic above)
Loki trying to steal my pink uggs (he likes pink things)

What is making your day today?

Fill In the Blank Friday: Hello December

1.   The holiday season is     a time to savor all the little moments that make life happy  .

2.   Snow makes me   excited if I don't have to get out in it. Lubbock drivers freak out and its just insane. And PT Cruisers were not made for ice/snow      .

3.  The best comfort food to eat when it's cold out is    soup and french bread and later hot cocoa    .

4. Winter is the best time for    snuggling with pups and husbands, while watching things on netflix and knitting  .

5.  I can hardly wait to    do this DIY Christmas wrap from Create Loves! I got some Martha Stewart glitter paint, because my presents need some sparkle!   .

6.  When it comes to holiday gifts I prefer to     do DIY gifts b/c I like making everyone something cute that I made with love, instead of giving them something made in China that will be put in the summer garage sale .

7.  If I were to rate my excitement about the holiday season on a scale from 1-10, I would say I am at about a     4,possibly a 3. Sadly I've been super stressed with my promotion, and want to be at work less and less but have to be there more and more. It kinda puts a damper on my holiday spirit that I don't get to make gifts this year or spend much quality time with family. I did put on some Christmas music in my car, and I have lights on my trees (still no decorations), so I think that's a start.  .
