I’ve been dying to get my hands on something of the little animal print style for a little while now. I kept waffling about getting this fox shirt from anthro. (sold out now) But the price tag just didn’t jive with my frugal sensibilities. But lo and behold…the chance to make my dreams came true when someone from eShakti contacted me (ya, little ol’ me) about doing a blogger review! eShakti is a website that offeres custom sized dresses, tops and skirts and also specializes in bridesmaid dresses.
I jumped at the chance and immediately was drawn to this fun bunny dress. I loved the pattern, and I also loved that it was in black and white, that meant more options to pair with tights or cardigans and wear it all year round! I opted to customize the sizing instead of picking a standard 4 or 6. You just pick your measurements in inches from the drop down (below are screenshots from the website.)
You also choose your height (above) so that on the next step, when you choose length, it will hit where you want it to! I choose above the kneewhich, as you can see, that’s exactly where it hits.
Goodness, January is almost over! To say 2013 has been off to a hectic start is an understatement. But in spite of the craziness, I made some new art for my mantle over the long weekend.
I got a baggie full of stamps at a estate sale several months ago and have had them sitting in a jar ever since. Time to make some art!
I was inspired by…pinterest. blah blah. I know. Originally form Sweet Paul.
I liked it, but I wanted to change a few things, first off. I had all colors of stamps, not just one, I also wanted some kind of border, and I’m not a huge fan of the overlapping. I really liked some of them and wanted each one to be seen, rather then blended together.
So I took my stamps. and the first thing I had to do was separate the stamp from the paper ( I really wanted the stamp-y edges) I used a blow dryer on hot as needed, since the stamps were old, most didn’t need much coaxing.
As I separated them I arranged by color (I love how order by color gives such a calming organizational look)
This was a blessed year for us here at the Randall Household. Lilu’s third Christmas and little Ein’s first!
We woke up early Christmas day and opened our stockings with our two friends. We gave Ein and Lilu their bones then too. We got lilu a huge bone and (as we predicted she would) she immediately started trying to get it out through the doggie door
Once she saw it didn’t tfit (and trying a few more times, even checking the the doggie door was clear) she eventully turned it around and got one end in
We thought she could do it, but…just like the little monkey and the bottle, she wouldn’t let go and even with the bone longways her head wouldn’t fit too!
