I had a busy day yesterday. I met with Bev from Flamingo Toes for several hours while we worked on this year’s SoCal Social. I sat in traffic on the way home, quickly changed clothes and made it to my exercise class, then hit my local Vons grocery store on the way home, desperately hoping […]
My new favorite thing: SnapBox Prints. Perfect for gift giving.
We all love photos, right? Do you frame the ones you really love? I do. (I even use them for my holiday decor…) We all love our phones too, right? What about Instagram? Are you an Instagram junkie? I am! (You can follow me here, by the way.) Have you found that some of […]
Why you need The Big-Ass Book of Bling… even if you don’t make jewelry.
A few days ago I shared a wrap up of the SoCal Social blogging event. One of the highlights of the event, both this year and last, was that the amazing Mark Montano joined us as our guest of honor. Me, Mark and Bev from Flamingo Toes at last month’s SoCal Social. If you aren’t […]
Turn old shopping bags into gift bags. A paper craft DIY.

Wallpaper For Windows solved a marital dispute. (Truly a versatile product!)
Handsome Hubby and I have been butting heads over our garage. Not only about whose mess/clutter is on whose side of the garage, and who has more crap than the other, etc. but also about the windows in our garage. I hate that you can pull up into our driveway and see what is inside, […]
Paper Projects: Homemade Gift Tags
For someone who doesn’t scrapbook, I sure do a lot of paper projects. I like to make my own homemade gift tags at Christmas. I can’t help myself. Each year I say I’m going to just use the ready-made type, and each year I wind up making my own anyway. (It’s a sickness really…) Paper […]
Linguine with Clam Sauce.
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carapelli for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I am Italian. I rarely cook with any oil other than olive oil. Not only does it lend a better flavor to your food, it has healthy fats, anti-oxidents and helps to control LDL (bad) cholesterol while raising […]
