In a Pinch Greeting Cards

A couple of years ago I bought this cool box of 25 random greeting cards from Costco that always came in handy when I forgot to pick one up for a special occasion. I’ll admit, they weren’t the cutest cards… in fact some I never used because they were so ugly…but they sure were convenient. I really missed having them once I ran out, and so the other day I decided to put my own little spin on the “card in a pinch” idea. This one I think is much cuter, and it will cost you under $15!

Craft Product: Silhouette

First off, that word is really hard to spell. Second, does anyone have a Silhouette machine? Third, do I need one??? This thing seems pretty bad a$$. It’s basically an electronic cutting tool that can create almost anything you can design on your computer. And not just on paper! According to their website, you can use it to cut vinyl, cardstock, fabric, heat transfer material, and more. It’s definitely an investment, with their two models ranging from $199-$299. So my question to those who have it…. Do you use it enough to make it worthwhile? Or

Best. Gift. Ever.

I spend a LOT of time in the kitchen. It’s probably my favorite room in the house, but no matter what I’m doing in there, I can’t deal with silence. I often bring in my laptop and throw on some Hulu so I can catch up on my favorite shows while cooking, cleaning, etc…. but the screen is super small, and at this point, probably covered in food. Ew. So this year for my birthday, Tony did something very special… When we first moved in, there was a clock high up on the kitchen wall. It was old and dirty,
