A Sweet Surprise!

I baked these cookies, a recipe I got from my annual cookie exchange and sent them off to Rance’s mom, Anita for her birthday. Of course I had to package them using orange baker’s twine. Then, I made another drawstring bag…this time using fabric that Anita got from her trip to Senegal. I hope she likes this little sweet surprise!

Just for Fun…

These are for my cousin Kim. For those few days out the month when you just don’t want anyone to mess with you, just put on this little Angry Period pin! Haha!

Favourite Things Lamp

I can’t stop thinking about this lamp by Chen Karlsson, a design studio based out of Stockholm, Sweden. Its simple, beautiful, and personal¬† since the little cut-out allows you to put any one of your favourite things inside. I am in serious covet mode right now and I can’t find any info on where to get one of these things!

A birthday present for Nolan!

My nephew Nolan turned one this weekend. We celebrated big time with him with lots of food, cake, cookies, and even one of those big inflatable jumpy houses. For his present, I bought him a couple of organic cotton tank tops from H&M (so cute!), and added some cloud pins on them. The gray sad cloud for when he’s having a bad day, and the white happy cloud for his good days. These were inspired by the cards that Lisa sent me awhile back. Both tank tops went into a drawstring bag that I made following these instructions. Really simple and easy to follow. Happy Birthday Nolan!

Mom’s Day Cards

Mom’s Day is this Sunday and I think this is the first year I haven’t scrambled last minute to make her a card. My mom is a fabulous cook so the last card with the laundry line of oven mits is for her. The extras are for Rance to give to his mom and grandmas. All stamps by Hero Arts.

Noodles!!!

So much noodles this weekend at the San Francisco Chinatown-Northbeach Noodle Festival! Passports in hand, we each sampled six noodle dishes, all super yummy. I inhaled the asparagus ravioli so fast, there is no documentation of it. From the top: penne arriabata, pad kee mao, tomato sauce chow mein, buddha’s delight veggie noodles, and pad thai. Belly full of noodles = happy.

Uppercase Magazine

I finally ordered a two year subscription Uppercase Magazine starting from issue number 3. I can’t wait to see them in my mailbox. I don’t know why I waited so long to subscribe, but when Lisa sent over the discount code for 10% off, I jumped at the opportunity. (sorry, I think the code has expired). Happy Weekend!
