cake and kate spade

i love kate spade just like the next girl. she is creative, different and style moving.
she has used cake in her live colorfully campaign before.

they commissioned Ely Kim to do the January Red Collection. It is fabulous, it is amazing, it is yumilicous.

oh what a day

that is all i have today. it is cold outside, i don't feel like working and i have a headache the size of the earth (yes that big!).
i like winter, but damnit snow or something! stop being cold with no reason to stay at home.
i am working on doing some weekly features. i want to do something different - just haven't had that "ahha" moment yet.
can't wait for the weekend...cause we are going ROLLERSKATING! hopefully by then, this headache will be gone. if not, i probably should be worried that my brain is falling apart inside my skull....eek!

today's music video is one of my favorites. it makes me always hits a key with me.

Look where I am at this month!!

i decided to sponsor a few blogs this month. i have not done this before - so if you are coming from one of these wonderful blogs!! Thanks for stopping by. I will have items in my shop soon - I am working on new prints and will have them posted in a couple of weeks.

Lindsey is totally awesome. We met through Elsie's blog and online classes. I was hoping to finally meet her last year at a weekend in St. Louis - but I ended up being in Las Vegas for Kinect training. Maybe next time!

what a process

for some reason it takes me forever to post a blog entry. i am such a perfectionist so i go into too much detail. maybe i should start limiting my entries to 2 pictures or something so you can at least have a little. i swear i have like 30 half way finished entries that i forget about cause i am 1. scatterbrained 2. impatient 3. get bored too easily 4. forgetful

i am still working on the 2010 in review post cause i was not organized with my pictures last year at all. i have them in like 5 different places!

so to hold you over. here is a little something from sunday when i went antiqueing with my lovely friend skye!

photo by me (will be available on etsy soon)

hello everyone!
one of my goals for 2011 is to blog more and to showcase my photography on a more frequent basis. i am going to be back tomorrow with 2010 review. i will also post my black eyed pea bean dip for everyone. in the south - eating black eyed peas on new years day will bring the year with good luck. we have made just beans before - but last year i did a dip and made another one today.

both the boy and i are going to be making a list of 20 things to do and 11 places to visit for 2011 and i will post later this week.

hope everyone is already having a great start to their year! i hope to be around a little more and make time for all my web lovelies.
