monday night…

Without a doubt, my FAVORITE thing about Christmas is Christmas Cards.  I have always loved making them… but I definitley love getting them. I have received quite a few, and I put them all up on my magnet board and I leave them up forever. Ok, I will admit… I don’t care what the card […]

TIM HOLTZ

Seriously… yesterday I got the biggest TREAT!! Emily and I drove about 2 hours north to Prescott, AZ and spent the day with Tim Holtz… we have been trying to get together for like 2 years now… I am always complaining to him that I need some instructions since I never can stand and watch […]

sunny AZ!

72 degrees never felt so great to me as walking off the plane in my own hometown after a little visit to -18 Minneapolis. I have to say, AZ rocks this time of year…it’s gorgeous! For those of you who guessed the ONE and ONLY Cathy Zielske is who was making me dinner… you were […]

the forest

here is the overall shot… it’s hard to take a good photo of the whole thing.. it’s really not much different than last year… just a few new additions… it does make me happy! (see below for more photos)

It […]

back to work

Back to work. LOVED my 4 days of off-ness. LOVED it.  I was the ultimate lazy. I didn’t do anything that I really had planned to do. and you know what, I am ok with that. I went to bed early and I was calm and I rested and I think that was exactly what […]

friday night

This week flew by! And next week is thanksgiving. Hello- that is a SCARY thought! Not only because it’s inching closer and closer to Christmas, and Christmas stresses me out. but because I have a lot of really serious deadlines. By that I mean, I am really supposed to be taking them seriously- here in […]

just stuff.

I can’t believe it’s already wed. I mean, seriously, I blinked. Last night we did our last store visit of the year. We were at this cutest store called “Lucky 15”. It really is a find. Meghan, the owner has a real flare…and she has some really cool stuff in there. I love how she […]
