Fun Things on a Lazy Day

Fun Things on a Lazy Day

I’m off work today for President’s Day (thank you, Mr. Washington). The kids have been at Nana’s house since yesterday, which gave Chris and I time to: A) Play golf B) Have a super fun date night last night (Y’all, I wore heels AND red lipstick!) C) Work on Gracie’s big girl room We’re moving Gracie over into a different bedroom because her current room gets so much direct sunlight that it is steamy hot all day in there. We figured we’d take this opportunity to set up her big…

It’s All in the Details

It’s All in the Details

I am not a details person. It’s a flaw. I see big picture. I see end results. I’m not so great about seeing the details it takes to reach that end. Which is why I’m not a great party thrower. Wait, let me take that back. Chris and I love to entertain. We have fun when we do and we hope our guests have a good time, too. What I’m not so great at are the details that make so many parties and events really personal or memorable. You might…

B’day Party Goody Bags – Kiss Labels

B’day Party Goody Bags – Kiss Labels

Admittedly, I am about as creative as a box of toothpicks. I appreciate creativity. I admire creativity. But I look at something creative – even simple things – and think, “That would never have crossed my mind to do that…” All of this is to say that my love of Etsy makes me FEEL creative. I can buy these DIY kits and spend 10 minutes on a little project and suddenly I feel like a creative genius! That’s what happened when I saw these adorable little Hershey Kiss labels on…

Etsy Day: Sew Divine

Etsy Day:  Sew Divine

You know you’re a blogger when you hear about something cool and the first thing you think is, “I can’t wait to blog about that!”  That’s totally what happened to me a couple months ago when my mom told me about this idea she had for an Etsy Shop. If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, then you know that my mom is as creative and talented as it gets.  In fact, I’m pretty certain the reason that I can’t do creative projects to save my life…

Etsy Day:  The Broward Patch

I am super excited about today’s Etsy Day profile.  I have been pinning after one of Jennifer Daniel’s custom camera straps ever since our photo shoot with Jenn Hopkins.  Jenn (the photographer) had the most adorable camera strap on her camera and come to find out it was custom made by another reader of my blog, Jen Daniels!  So many Jen’s!  So many camera straps! (See Jenn’s cute camera strap?) So imagine my happiness when I started exchanging emails with Jen (the strap lady) and she said she’d like to…

Etsy Day: Sassy Glass Studio

Etsy Day:  Sassy Glass Studio

A month ago, I invited any MC reader with an Etsy shop to send me their shop information so that I could start profiling artists every few weeks on my blog.  I was totally unprepared for all the emails I got!  I had no idea I had such creative readers out there!  I had a really tough time picking my first Etsy Day artist to profile but, in the end, I kept going back to this one beautiful glass bowl I saw when I was first looking through everyone’s shops….

Etsy Day!

Etsy Day!

My name is Katie.  And I am an online shopper. It started when I was pregnant and was too tired to drag my huge belly around from shop to shop.  I started shopping online from my couch in my yoga pants and it was like the Heavens opened up and the angels were singing down to me from on high. (To the tune of the Hallelujah chorus, please) IN YOUR P.J.’s! You saved monnnney!  You saved monnnney! WITHOUT WEARING A BRA! You saved monnnney!  You saved monnnney! It was amazing….
