Kind of a busy Sunday for us. Birthday party in a couple of hours for a wee friend of the chubkins and then we need to go grocery shopping. (I know it’s not that much, but most Sundays we never change out of PJs, so running around is a big deal on Sunday.)

First, though, I wanted to share some fun Etsy finds. I haven’t been paper scrapping much lately…it kinda fell by the wayside in the wake of my digital frenzy. But that is about to change. One of my all-time fave paper scrappers has some goodies for sale there and I just had to snag some. I love the block project. How fun is that?!?!


I also snagged a mini album kit that is absolutely de-lish. You can grab Kristina’s goods HERE.


I actually had the pleasure of meeting Kristina at CHA. I use the term “meet” loosely, though, y’all. I seriously think she recoiled a bit as I approached. I was the human equivalent of the sappy, happy-go-lucky Labrador retriever who has yet to sniff you but knows you have a doggy treat hidden in one of your pockets. As soon I got control of myself and gave my little intro, she warmed up and was all smiles. She was so gracious. I think I said something like “I’m a bit starstruck!” to which she replied something like Oh, stop! Stop!!” I love it when people are just totally cool and chill. When I got back to where Meredith and Hollie were standing, they totally teased me and called me a nerd. I deserved it of course.


And then I stopped by my ultimate fave paper scrapper‘s Etsy shop and picked up some bling for my 2 new paper projects.


I found tons of other cool yumm stuff. Some of which I bought and some I thought you’d like to take a gander at. I snagged this ultra cool piece of linen from matatabi.


And even though I didn’t grab any of these from brookerpie, I thought you might like them…I think they’re adorable!


And last, but not least, my new fave to rock to: Sia


I love her silly lyrics and her voice is really dreamy and folky. One of my fave songs is Academia.

Here’s an excerpt:

I am a dash and you are a dot
When will you see that I am all that you’ve got
I’m a binary code that you cracked long ago
But to you I’m just a novel that you wish you’d never wrote
I’m greater than x and lesser than y, so why is it
That I still can’t catch your eye?
You’re a cryptic crossword, a song I’ve never heard
While I sit here drawing circles I’m afraid of being hurt

She’s like Amy Winehouse, but kookier and more peppy. Love that! So, that’s about it for today. Gotta run and purdify the kiddos for their party and then restock pantry. Ciao, all! Happy Sunday!
