Is it any wonder with this new bout of beautiful spring weather that I might be in the mood for something minty fresh? I might even just put a pitcher of mint and lemon on my counter just so I can stare at it.
Of course, right as I say this we’re getting our first thunderstorm of the season followed by a cold front. Guess I’ll have to rely on Etsy to keep the spring vibe going for a few days.
I’m somewhat obsessed with time, both how little there is and how often I find myself wasting it. In fact I’ve convinced most of my time is wasted and that’s why I was instantly drawn to these letterpress prints by Alyson Provax.
Maybe I need a few as a reminder that I’m not the only one who spaces out, dwells, and can generally just be lazy. Maybe that’s ok?
OK so…. I went missing this week for anexciting reason… I designed and built a new desk for myself. I am so stoked and finally have the space I’ve been dreaming of to actually get some offline work done.
I still have a few finishing touches to add before I share it with you guys so look for that tomorrow or the next day. In the meantime I figured I’d go to Etsy for one of the items on my list which, as you can see, is bookends. But now I have another problem… which ones?
Which ones do you like? Need more? Head over to Knob Creek Metal Arts for 80 more options in bookends alone! I think it’s the cannon for me.. but then I see the beaver with the tree and I’m lost all over again!
I am sick. Or in other words: A lesson in why a blogger should get some posts ready in case of emergencies. At least it gave me some inspiration for this week’s Etsy Wednesday… get well cards!
But it’s me, so they’re all funny or slightly inappropriate because the last thing I need to do when I’m not feeling well is take things seriously.
Finally, the long awaited return and revamp of Etsy Wednesday! I’ve missed it so.
Erin Tyner’s Half Awake series of photographs is… awesome. They’re miniatures shot in handmade landscape dioramas, and I want every single print (especially the tornado).
Words can’t possibly explain how much I love Mini-Eco’s printable gift wrap (among other things! What a great blog!)
Thanks to one of my favorite funny gals on youtube, Grace Helbig of Daily Grace, I’ve decided to seek out the hilarious, and oh-so-cozy looking kaola onesie she sometimes wears. I had no idea I’d come across that and so much more…
There’s something really special about choosing a new interesting ornament for the tree every year. I particularly love picking a strange one (like #6) or one that needs saving from a thrift shop.
What kind of ornaments do you have? Traditional? Do you get new ones? Let me know!
Etsy cures what ails. Click on the delicious finds to get to their shops.
Today was that total wasted day of the month where I find myself curled up in the fetal position. And now that I’ve successfully turned off any potential male readers, let us move on.
I’ve also been researching how to set up an Etsy shop (hello… finally?) because the job hunt is freaking killing me and I have to do SOMETHING… ANYTHING. Not that I actually plan to make a living off of it, but a girl can dream and there’s lots of room for dreaming when you spend the majority of your time LOOKING FOR A JOB.
Have you seen this incredibly daunting post?
It’s a bear. The links and information just keeps going and going and going. I think I’ll do a little more reading and then just test the waters. For me, the best way to learn is by doing. Time to do.
So, wanna buy a pretty photo?
