Window shopping Wednesday

I'm trying a little something different this spring to give me a little boast of creativity in my wardrobe.  A blogger I follow, Alison @ Get your Pretty On is offering a Style Me Challenge for spring.  For 10$ she provides a shopping list and then outfits for 3 weeks.  I figured I couldn't go wrong with this for that price.  I can't wait to see what different kind of outfits are pieced together.  I'll keep you posted once it starts.  You can check it out on the sidebar if you're interested in joining in.

I didn't spend much time browsing online this week.  Shocker.  It was one of those weeks.  What I did do instead was indulge in my sudden onslaught of craftiness.

A couple weeks ago was my dear friend, Candace's 35th bday.  Another milestone birthday celebrated with our friends.  For our 30th we went all out.. and I can somewhat remember our 25th, oh that Sangria.
I'll go ahead and let you figure out which one was 5 years ago and which was 10.

Now, for the 35th bday of lovely friends, I'm making them each their own piece of art...actually I think I may have done this for all the 30ths as well...a painting if I remember correctly.  Each picture will be different, obviously, but this is what I came up with for Candace.


I was extremely pleased with the outcome and can't wait to get to work on the next birthday gift for the next birthday girl.  Then I spent some time daydreaming where I opened my own Etsy shop and made personalized gifts for other girls, looking to spoil their most treasured peeps.

Here are some of the ideas I have been dreaming about:



And as soon as I get this house spring cleaned, you can bet ya that I'll be at some of these projects!!!
