How to Be Hip

This weekend, my family went to Luce for dinner to celebrate my mom’s bday. The restaurant just got its first Michelin Star. It was pretty num num, and all the plates were really pretty!

Since I’d just gotten back from Vegas, my mom told me not to sweat her bday prezzie just yet, but I wanted to sweat it anyway!!! I thought it would be yummy for Hairy to whip up a lobster bisque!

We went to Ranch 99 before meeting everyone for dinner to procure our lobster.

But apparently my mom also had a birthday request: zipper danglies! She wanted cherries, lemons, and grapes. I said, “That’s a LOT of purse danglies!!!” and she said, “Yeah, that’s what makes it HIP!!”

I’m still working on the grapes, and then these guys will get felted. And I will be soon sending a re-fill to And I have to finish up my taxes. And I’m also working on a fun 5-part project to be revealed in about 2 weeks….here’s a sneak!

    So sweet! Btw: When will your book come out? Will the gingerbread pattern be in there?
    And are those zipper danglies hard to make? (they were crocheted, right? I’m such a dork πŸ˜› ) Because right now I can only crochet things like scarfs…
