Cinco, Cinco de Mayo

My friend Katie started selling the cutest Cinco de Mayo pins in her etsy shop. They are the cutest little things ever. Guess who she chose to be her models?

E is for...

EMILY! She's coming to the KC this weekend to visit me. She hasn't been here since September (for my bday) and a lot has changed in my little house between then and now. 2 rooms got painted and rearranged a bit AND I got a fancy new couch. We are going to High Tea at Mitzy London's tomorrow and then going to see "The Runaways" Sunday. Aside from that, we will probably hit up some food joints, maybe do some shopping, and sip on bubble tea. Yes, KC has a lot to offer the weekend traveller.

Laura sent me this little blob of happiness. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

I have a thing for cute play houses

When I was little, I always dreamed of living in the A-frame play house we had in our backyard. I had it all planned out. All I needed really was a really long phone cord to reach out there so I could stay in touch with my friends. You know, since 6 year olds have such active social lives. No need for a fridge or a bathroom. Just a phone- that's all I needed. I ran across this picture (and many other wonderful shots) here and was flooded with memories and inspiration. Just thought I'd share:)

Badge of Honor

My friend Jessica recently had me make a badge for her sister to wear for her bachelorette party. I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to see pics of it in action.

Easter Basket Swap!

My friend Em organized an Easter Basket Swap this year. It was like a Secret Santa Gift Exchange but with Easter Baskets. Get it? Good. Moving on. It was a little stressful designing a basket for a fellow designer to be given in front of a room full of designers. I ended up having a great time putting mine together and went with an aqua and orange color scheme. Yesterday the 13 girls who participated met at lunch time and exchanged baskets. Em provided a bunch of desserts (she is an amazing baker!) and we all sat and ate our lunches. Then it was time to get down to business. We went one by one and gave baskets to the person we each made them for. It was so cool to see what every one did and how much thought went into each basket.
The basket I received was so freaking cute! It was garden themed and she included all of my favorite candies. Everything was nestled in a cute green watering can!
My friend Katie made a basket with a green color scheme and included this little guy. She made it! I love his ears.My friend Amanda made this little slice of heaven. It was filled with so many different Easter candies that I think I got a cavity just from looking at it.

The swap was a great time and I really hope Em plans another one for next year. It really got me in the Easter spirit!
