Holiday Photo Diary

Painting progress: Glitter and finishing touches to her little peppermint wonderland.
 So many little faces in the studio.
Hot chocolate!  
 Pretty Mab Graves Christmas card from my beautiful friend and Editor-in-Chief at beautiful.bizarre. Thank you, Danijela! I love it!  
 After a long day of last minute Christmas shopping, this was my snuggle time view. 
 Calorie free goodies and antique polkadot mushrooms trimming our tree. 
We had a wonderful Christmas filled with love, happiness, and complete silliness... there was also a lot of kitchen dancing to a musical soap dispenser that Alex and I confiscated from Mom's house. I'm so grateful for every cherished moment.

The Leather Satchel

When Gail from The Leather Satchel Company contacted me with the amazing opportunity to choose a satchel of my choice to review, keep, and love forever I practically fell out of the chair. I'd been lusting after one of these gorgeous bags for the longest time, because while it may sound a bit unconventional, I thought it perfect for gallivanting about the sculpture park with my trusty writing supplies  swinging idly at my side. So like a springboard into the sea of opportunity, I leapt at the idea of writing about how much I adore the vintage aesthetic and sinuously detailed structure that creates an effortlessly downtown sophistication.
