Knitter in the Wild: Go Wild in Las Vegas

My recap of my Go Wild experience is a little behind because I had to take a quick time out upon my return to finish grad school. That’s right, peeps, I am officially done! Mini wave in celebration of me! Now that I am back to only having the day job to work around, I […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Cricketmas Finale

Merry Christmas,  everyone!  Today is my final advent calendar post.  I am looking forward to returning to the regularly scheduled programming of the blog filled with pictures and finished projects, but this month has been fun.  The advent calendar palooza was filled with surprises, even if it was a challenge to post every day around […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas

It is time to open up the final package of the Simply Gilded advent calendar. From feeling the packaging,  I knew it wasn’t going to be washi, so I wasn’t all that surprised when this super cute and adorable key chain popped out. I like the various charms used, the only thing missing is a […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 12

For the last day of 12 Days of Burton, So Berry Busy gives us a whole kit! I appreciate that the kit incorporates many of the characters from Burton movies into one place.  I like that it has date covers, full boxes, lots of quarter and half boxes, and a weekend banner – all of […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Cricketmas Day 1

I could tell by the shape of the package as I felt it, today’s Cricket Paper Co envelope was not going to be stickers, but for the life of me I couldn’t even guess what it was.  0erhaps that’s because I am not a pin collector,  because after I opened it, it was fairly obvious […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 11

I think today might be the last roll of washi in Simply Gilded’s advent calendar.  I have felt up all the packages, and tomorrow’s does not feel like a roll, so when I opened today’s I wasn’t sure what to expect.   Would it be an intricate pattern like the swans or stars?  Would it be […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 11

Today’s package from So Berry Busy made me smile.  When I bought the 12 Days of Burton, I think I assumed that each day would be themed around a specific movie, but instead the packages seem a bit more random, which has made predicting the contents hard.  For day 11, we have products inspired buly […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: Simply Gilded 12 Days of Christmas Day 10

I know I continue to gush over the packaging for Simply Gilded’s advent calendar, but it is just so pretty.  I have been thinking about doing advent calendar style gifts for friends next year, so I wonder if Irene will tell me her source. Today, SG gives us more washi, this time in the 5mm […]

Advent Calendar Palooza: 12 Days of Burton Day 10

So Berry Busy’s artistic talent truly amazes me.  I hope Blaine knows how talented she truly is.  Each say that I open the package in the 12 Days of Burton box, I am always delighted. Today, Fang is on a dashboard, goes down the rabbit hole in homage to Alice in Wonderland,  and celebrates the […]
