Maddy received her box o’ Xmas/Valentine’s Day goodies, so I can share with you the surprise prezzie I popped in for her! It’s a super cutesy wutesy Valetine brooch and hair clip. It has a ton of heart-shaped and regular shaped beads and cabs all over it. I will definitely offer these before next Valentine’s Day, and maybe even just soon/whenever, cuz I think they are a sweet little way to say I HEART YOU!!!

A few days ago, I got my hurrr cut by Jules. We were trying to figure out how long it had been since I’d gotten it cut, but it was definitely time, and my head feels so much less bulky and shaggy! We didn’t change anything major, but I think I will probably want my bob back in the summer! She also said she would pretend not to notice the giant chunk of bangs I had cut out of my head on my own. DOH.

Today we drove to Sacramento with the doggies to visit Hairy’s family and his new baby niece. I didn’t take pictures, though, cuz I’m sensitive about posting pics of other families on my blog. I did snap a pic of the cardi I wore, though.

I clearly can’t let go of the Valentine’s Day spirit!

It’s from Forever 21. Hearts hearts hearts!!!

Oh! For those who don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook, I also uploaded the popcorn garland pattern to Etsy, as well as the electronic/PDF version of my Sugar On Top Mini book. I will be making more of the actual mini book as well (gotta pick up my copies from the copy place!) and putting them on Etsy, but you can save a few bucks by assembling your own if you buy the PDF ๐Ÿ™‚

Check it out!

Just a note: this doesn’t mean I will start posting patterns for everything under the sun!!! I think for now, I only intend to post the occasional pattern for projects I know I probably don’t want to sell finished products of myself. For stuff like the cupcake coffee cup cozies: I’m still making them and selling them, so I probably wouldn’t post the pattern just yet. I’ve already been fielding a few questions like these, so I thought I would just bring it up! ๐Ÿ™‚ But I WILL be sharing a VERY cute coffee cup cozy pattern with you guys via a SUPER rad magazine that I adore. I will let you know when that is out!

OKAY! Stay tuned for Monday! I will be announcing a pretty cool giveaway with a fun new item, and there will be 10 winners! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The awesome girl who cuts my hair is also kind enough not to give me hell over my self-cut hair. And I always promise that I won’t do it again. And then I always do.

    Cutting your own hair is just too much fun!
