You thought I went missing, didn’t you? (…plus, check this out!)

I really am still alive!  I know, I can’t believe how long it’s been (since I posted last) either.  In fact, I can’t believe Christmas is over.  And that tomorrow is New Year’s.  Does anyone else feel like Christmas should be this week?  I think it was the late Thanksgiving that threw me off……but my head can’t wrap around the past few weeks, that seemed to have played out in fast forward.  Boo. 


Anyway, I hope your Christmas was beautiful.  And full of warmth.  And loved ones.  And yummy food, of course. :) 


And tonight?  I hope it’s just how you like it.  We normally keep it low key… if you’re like us, I hope you find some rockin’ cool videos at RedBox to rent.  Ha! :)


And yes, I’m totally back in the swing of things tomorrow and have a fun post (with giveaway!!) that you won’t want to miss!  It’s all sorts of crafty!


I’m also pretty excited about lots of new projects and ideas that I have stored up for 2014.  Oooooooh, can’t wait!!

. . . . .



In the meantime, I woke up this morning and noticed a huge sale going on over at Pick Your Plum today.  I think they must have tons of this stuff and are begging people to take it out of their warehouses because the prices today are CRAZY!!  Most stuff is under $5 today…….and most of it is lady’s items. (sorry boys!)  Super cute tops, scarves, necklaces, leggings, hats, etc. And then a bit of washi tape, metal containers, and so on.


Just a whole lotta cute, cute, and more cute.  Yep, 40 items are listed for today.  Wow.


I mean, come on….Tear Drop Necklaces for $3.99? Rad.




Or how about these darling Kid Hats for $1.99!!  I’ll take one.  Uhhhh, in all 5 colors please!




Or, oh gee, I kinda need one of these All Season Bags for $3.99…… all 4 colors!!




Oh, but wait……….these Chiffon Tanks are only $3.99!  Yeah, you read that right!




I’m not gonna lie, I bought all of the items listed, plus a few more.  I couldn’t help it. :)


Pick Your Plum……you make me so happy!  Your deals shock the socks right off of me.  Every. Time.



Okay……..see you tomorrow. :)

    Super cute stuff. I’ve been having a problem lately adding a comment to your blog posts with several comments. The page has to load ALL the comments before I can get to the comment form to add my own. I have found this particularly difficult with giveaways. I have tried 4 times to add a comment to your quiet book pattern book giveaway, but it has been taking several minutes to load, and I never have time to wait it out. Could you put the add comment box ahead of the other comments made? I know nothing about html, so this may be harder than it sounds–so no worries if it is! (I think craftaholics anonymous has it set up the way I’m talking about if I’m not making sense.) :)

    Just love the quiet book idea! Followed a previous post where you showed how you made yours and put the idea on my list of things I want to do. Now with the opportunity to get a “how to” book, I want to make three Quite Books, so each of my granddaughters gets one. I am thinking that each one will be unique to the interests and age of each little lady, like the 3 year old will have more of a princess theme, my 5 year old granddaughter loves to build things and put things together, and the 1 year old can have more exploration, like the sock in the laundry basket page you show in your blog. I know this project will definitely be guided by love, my love of this project idea and my love for three little granddaughters. Thank you.
