Sorry I have been MIA the past week or so...I went to the Jersey Shore with some friends from college - it was a lot of fun, but I must have picked up a bug which has wiped me out the past few days. I'll try to post some stuff soon! xoxo

I posted about Jen's firepit yesterday, but I have a question about friends and weddings. I am a bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding and I want to get her something special for their wedding gift.

Do you do homemade stuff or do you prefer to buy from the registry? I am thinking of making her a quilt. I have an idea of what I want to do and what colors, but I am not going to post here in case she is reading;) Instead, I will share some of my favorite patterns:)

So what did you do? Homemade or storebought?

Great balls of fire...

I was visiting my very best friend Jen on Friday and she has a fire pit at her house! I didn't get a picture of it, but I loved it! It was the perfect place to sit and relax with a drink at 11pm when the sun had gone down and the fire burned bright. We pulled over chairs and propped up our feet and toasted marshmellows for s'mores. Soooo yummy....

I started planning my very own firepit...I like how simple the second one is in the grass, but I love the setup and chairs of the first picture.

Felting Wool

Have you ever felted wool? We're thinking about working with felted wool, but I think it might be too much to undertake. If you don't know what it is, to felt wool is to treat wool with hot water and soap to form a cloth-like texture.

Have you done it? Do you have any tips?

So I had a big post for Healthcare planned, but I accidentally deleted it. So instead, I am going to direct you to an article about the 5 KEY FREEDOMS you'll loose if the healthcare reform is passed.

Most important to me is at the end: FREEDOM TO CHOOSE YOUR OWN DOCTOR!!!

Obama's proposed reform has me running for the hills.

Trying something new...

So sorry for the sporadic posting. I am going to try to utilize the time setting for posting every day - each weekend, I will set up several posts that will post themselves throughout the week. Takes away some of the authenticity, but I just don't have time to remember to post during the week, lol. Let's try it, shall we?

I heart Etsy!

Great news! I made my first (and second, third, and fourth) sale on Etsy! Two were actually off Etsy, but they occured because they saw what I had to offer in my shop. Visit my shop to see what new items we have up for sale! I am really excited about this necklace - so cute!

Click here to see more pictures of this necklace!
