J'adore Paris!

I think I did that right, I had two years of French in High school and two years of Spanish so I love to mix them together. Plus I was never that good at foreign languages. Anyways, whoo what a day, I had a drop off for a boutique and get this I get there, an hour from my home, to discover I forgot the jewelry when I left for work this morning. I have never forgotten the jewelry before. So thanks to OH he met me so I didn't have to drive all the way home.

Other than that I am so excited the Sweet Goodness Girls are hosting a spring swap, I love Paris in the Spring Time. Love it!

In fact I was just watching the Hills on MTV last night, I am so addicted to that show, not sure why, but I just love watching it. Anyways Lauren was in Paris last night for Teen Vogue, nice huh. I never got to travel out of the country for an internship. It was so fun to watch and see the city of lights. I'm sure you guys don't know this but when i was 16 I got to travel there with school for about a month and half. The best experiance of my life, would totally reccomend it to anyone esspecially artists though. Paris just has this feeling and ambiance about it, I was so homesick for oh about a month, and I think I spent more on calls home than buying things. Of course when it was time to go I cried, I just fell in love with that city. Sacre Coure, I think I speeled that wrong, but any ways they have the cutest market near the church and it is filled with artist and this one nice older man drew my portrait and it was just amazing, I think my parents still have it some where. If you ever get the chance, I say jump on it, I want to go back and hit the flea markets and eat at the out door cafes.

Another fun fact while I was there, I was so wrried about money, it was the first time I had to handle expenses for that long and I only had 1000 dollars, so I ate baquettes and nutella for almost every meal, except in NIce I had a lasagna dinner and it was to die for. I lost 20 lbs and probably looked the best I ever have. So ladies get out your credit cards and make that flight, and could I please stow away in someone's luggage? until next time!

P.S. special thanks to Fated Follies StudioFated Follies Studio who helped me correct my french for the title, I was always so bad with the verbs.

Happy Easter

Thanks to my sweet Easter Basket Swap partner Molly, I have these great images to share with you guys. Hope you all had a fabulous Easter. I enjoyed lots of good food, family, and even an adult easter egg hunt. I teamed up with my niece and we won. Yeah for us, we had 24 eggs found between the two of us. I am so glad my mom set it up, I miss doing that kind of stuff since I am now supposed to be an adult. Until Later!

Spring is in the Air

Well here is the pic of the lovely spring necklace and earrings I made. It currently resides at a boutique in Ham Lake at Majestic Oaks Golf Course for you Minnesotans. Which they have the best brunch out there if you ever in that area. I regress here are the pics and Renee is off to bed so I can read and try and relax. Oh and ignore the mess in the background I was getting ready for a show remember! Hoping that tomorrow will be as pleasant weather wise as it was today! Keep your fingers crossed.

Some New Pretties

Well here is the bracelet that I made with Jane in mind. Jane I promise I will email you tonight with pics!

I used the new camera at work and I lvoe it but I forgot what a pain it can be to take pics of jewelry. As you can tell with the too pics I was playing with using some different lighting the gold tone is actually the color in the first picture.

Anyways I will hopefully post some new pics of another piece tonight, alas I am at work on lunch and I must say it is so nice outside. It feels like spring today I think we might even hit 45 degrees. I know I can barely describe how wonderful it feels. I swear I am ready to run home and drag out the sandals already. Granted yes we are supposedly getting a nsow storm next Monday. I'm not sure if you all know this or not, but I love sandals, if I could I would wear them all year round, unfortunately since I live in MN I can't!

Oh well lunch is over and I should get back to work :( Alas I just want to run out in the open and feel the sun on my face all afternoon. Maybe later! Until then.

Hello Basket

Ever have one of those weekends, I had a show yesterday so I decided on Friday to sew, which I really don't know how, new table linens from some vintage curtains. I finished without finishing the edges which I am quite proud of granted there are some mistakes but they turned out real pretty thanks to some helpers at Joannes. Fast forward to Sat. no clean socks, so I stole some of Oh's and headed out the door, late, but with clean over sized socks. That is the type of weekend I have had last minute, car problems, I swear it is possessed i will be paying tomorrow to find out why the car is posses ed hopefully it will be cheap. In other happy news, see below.

Thanks to the wonderful Molly, I have received the coolest Easter Basket ever. She really did a great job, plus she was so on the ball she was already shipping hers, and I had only bought the basket. she even sent Lola her own goodies bag, which she loved the toys Molly was so sweet to send her. just check out the pics, Molly you did a wonderful job and thank you so much!

Other than that it has been crazy around here, Jane, you know who you are, I have finally made a bracelet in your color palette, I have some pics, but of course they are at work, so I will email you this week. I am so sorry it took this long to find the pieces, who would have known that gold and blue were hard to find together, or it is just that I was looking for them.

Anyways finished a show yesterday and am currently uploading some more vintage flowers to Etsy and then inventorying jewelry for a boutique drop off tonight. Then i think it is time for some laundry. Do I sound crazed a little in this post? Well i am so feeling like a maniac you wouldn't believe it! Until next time.

Okay blogger is being a pain and not loading my pics, I have been trying all day, and darn it I give up, I am off to bed, maybe tommorow I can share the beautiful basket I received.

Crazy Daisy

Well sorry I have been MIA seems to be a theme lately, I accidentally over booked myself for the next two months but the real problem happens this week. I have three events going on so of course i waited till the last minute and decided I needed to make a ton of new stuff. So I have been going full force for the last week or so. All will be fine, but I am still behind on taking photos of the fun mail I have been getting so sorry ladies I promise i will do it. I really do it just might be awhile longer still.

Other than running like a crazed women, I have been taking Lo to the vet, poor thing ended up with frost bite. So of course I feel horrible but I still can't believe it, she is never outside long. The vet was really nice and had to explain to me it wasn't my fault over and over. Apparently since she is so short she is getting wet or moist and having some problems with one nipple being frost bit. Still horribly embarrassed by my apparent lack of a parent. Plus Lo is pissed due to the Elizabethan collar she has to wear while I'm at work. But after a few days it is starting to look better and she is no longer licking it. Score for me. So it has been crazy as usual and I am falling behind. Here is too a fabulous week to all and hoping spring hurries it's but up in Minnesota!
