I just can't wait until it's here (March 1) . Two of my favorite things will finally blend together. I'm not a huge fan of pink, so I'll have to buy the other pieces.

It's finally here, sort of! Today I started an Etsy page for our new line of handmade accessories called nineteen/eighteen! I'm not exactly sure of the future of nineteen/eighteen because it's still new to me. I'm going to continue to make those lovely cowl scarves and hand crocheted accessories, but I'm sure plenty will come in addition to that. I have a few talented friends that may be making things for nineteen/eighteen as well. I'll keep you all updated in the months to come on the development of this line. But for now, enjoy. Shop Shop Shop nineteen/eighteen!

Day 19

I'm beginning to crochet these lovely cowl scarves to sell in the store. They should be available in a few different colors. But it takes me a while to hand make these, so most likely there will only be one in each color. Soon Soon Soon, I promise!!

Talented Friend!

One of my best friends, and former college roommate, Brooke just created a new line of REALLY amazing skirts (shown above). They're not for sale, nor has she even named her line of clothing. But once she does, I'm definitely going to start selling them in the store! They're all so adorable, I can't even decide which one I like the most. Maybe the skirt with the creepy cat heads! Anyway, congrats Brooke. Your work is amazing. Now sell the dang things!



Meg 365

I started a new project on 1/1/09 called Meg 365. I've decided to take one photo that represents each day for 365 days. I'm sure you've seen these photo projects before, but I've never done one and I thought this year would be a great year to do! CLICK HERE to check it out. 6 days down, 359 to go!

NYE: Mitten Party

Last night for new years I hosted the 1st Annual Merry Mitten New Year. This is a mitten themed party honoring Christmas and New Years. Everyone had to wear mittens the entire time. It was so much fun. My friend Sarah and I made a mitten board game. When you drew a card, you would have to do a task that is extremely hard with mittens on! Oh good times were had. I'm hoping to have this party every year. Calling it the 1st annual was slightly sad.
