Happy Birthday Bake Sale Designs!

I recently had the pleasure of working with a really talented designer, Rebecca of Bake Sale Designs. Today she sent me the MOST over-the-top generous goodie box of stuff that I couldn't believe my eyes!! THANK YOU REBECCA!!! She makes the cutest ever mustache bags!! And her flower pins are all so super retro and colorful, I want one in every color. The best part is, she reuses fabrics she finds at thrift stores. What a great concept.

Anyway, I helped Rebecca announce her birthday blog contest and first year of business with this press release. I hope it makes her super famous.
Visit her store, support her second year of business and I wish her a very happy birthday.

Loving you is easy cos you're beautiful...

Well, the hubby and I spent our second anniversary traipsing around the country. Chicago was our last stop; we visited Pumpkin Girl-in-law and The Bean (pictured using my anniversary gift fish eye camera). I have to say, in all seriousness, that America truly is "the beautiful." We visited Davenport IA, St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville, Bloominton IN, Chicago, Madison, Eau Claire and lots of tiny towns along the way. Ah, refreshing!

Not much going on in the crafting world. Pumpkin Girl 2 and I have been working on these, though. Never again will you need to hand-write every darn thing you need on your list! They come equipped with lines for you to write in the amount you need or simply check off that you need something. Each list has the basics (bread, toilet paper, etc.) and are tailored to the type of cuisine you typically eat - this one for latin-inspired cooks! More to come!

It's feeling quite like fall in the air. I think we're in store for some home cooking and sweater time! Yikes, can't believe it's already here!
