Look at this creative project from Jocelyne Grivaud. I think her idea is genius because she put a playful spin on these iconic works of art using an equally iconic figure that is unexpected yet well known to all. Enjoy!!

In a few short weeks, I need to pack up the house and be ready to move while not actually being here. If that didn't make sense to you, don't still doesn't make sense to me! I will be working and making trips back home on the weekends but I feel like I need Santa's little helpers here to pack up while I am busy at work. I feel a bit overwhelmed but I know things will get done somehow- they have to! Have any of you moved recently? Any tips?

this is what I feel like

this is my goal...any volunteers?



Whether you believe that Valentine's Day is a day to show your love or that it is a big Hallmark is still coming in a couple of weeks!! My mom always gave us cards and little gifts on this holiday so I can't help but celebrate it. I think it's fun to celebrate with friends or a significant other...any reason for sweets and fun decorations right?!

Look at this cute sugar cookie bracelet from food + words

How about some heart shaped balloons!

who doesn't love s'mores?! 



Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!! As I sit here, I cannot believe another year has passed. So much happened in 2011 and I am getting ready for another big change in 2012, I will be moving back to San Diego this year. I have settled back into my hometown of Fresno and it will be bittersweet to leave my home. I have been going through a reflective phase lately so I apologize for my silence/ lack of posts :). Here are some fun things I ran across!

Check out this cute way to measure out spaghetti noodles!

I wouldn't mind whipping up some pancakes with this tool

This is a great little gift idea I love how delicate it looks
