My love list (Part 1):
I'm thinking about giving up my almost daily latte.
Not necessarily forever, but at least from now until my next birthday (May). I'll putting the money I would have spent into a "happy birthday to me" jar. I get some "surprise" birthday cash and hopefully kick an unnecessary habit in the process.
I've now done a handful of craft shows and I've discovered the key to a great craft booth setup
Seriously. The night before setup I charged my iPod (yes, it's old, but it works), I even uploaded some new songs. I also realized that my set-up playlist is almost the same as my workout playlist. *shrug*

So.... I JUST found out that there is a National Stationery Show that's apparently been going on annually for the last 68 years! Why have I never heard of this? An entire convention filled with prettily designed paper products

Do you listen to NPR? I do.
Do you miss Neal Conan yet? I do.
Once a month I do a artist profile/interview with a California based artist for the California Crafters' Club of Etsy Blog. This month I got a chance to profile the amazing Astrid of AnAstridEndeavor who's also participating in the Martha Stewart American Made Contest.
Here's a peek at some of her work:
As anyone who follows me on Instagram knows I like to play with earring color combinations.
