How I spent my Friday . . .

I know it may seem unimpressive to anyone who lives in a cold climate, but this is a big deal in the south.  I woke up Friday morning to a blanket of snow and it was amazing!  It didn’t last long.  By afternoon, most had melted away.  But it sure was nice …

I’m on Etsy . . .

I have loved Etsy for a while.  I have made many purchases from other artists and designers and I have become friends with some of them.  It’s a great community.  So, I have decided to offer some of my products on Etsy in order to provide an outlet for people …

Credit where it’s due . . .

I receive tons of catalogs in the mail.  It started when I was in college when I wanted mail so badly that I would fill out every card in magazines or other catalogs just to have something waiting when I made the trek to my mailbox.  Over the years, these catalogs have …

I should go to bed, reason #457 . . .

I have about three orders that I would like to ship out in the morning so I’m awake at 2:30 am listening to Kelly Clarkson and pondering America’s fascination with the Sock Monkey.  Sock Monkeys seem to be everywhere lately.  Grown people love these things and I just don’t get …

The loss of a friend…

Wednesday night, I suffered a great loss.  This loss sent me into a panic I haven’t experienced in a LONG time.  I wondered aloud how I would ever recover.  My cousin Kesha offered condolences and told me of other people in my situation.  None of it helped because I needed to mourn the …

My Trip Home….

A few weeks ago, my mother hosted the first party in her home since Katrina.  I absolutely HAD to make that trip.  There was no way I was going to miss this party AND it just happened to be Super Bowl AND Mardi Gras weekend!! C’mon people! I had no …

I had a plan….

I went on vacation recently back home to New Orleans and then to visit my cousin in Houston.  My plan was to tell all about it when I got back a few days ago.  Unfortunately, since my return, I caught a wicked stomach virus thing that has wrecked my system …

Thanks friends!

To everyone who sent me well wishes on Write Robinson’s first birthday (which she shares with Oprah, not on purpose, but damn coincidental for anybody who knows I worship her), my sincerest, heartfelt, and overwhelming thanks.  It was January 29th, by the way.
