Sparkly New Year Color Palette

Giltter New Year Oysters Color PaletteMy favorite things all have to do with the sea: walks on the beach, snorkeling, swimming, uni, tide pools, fish tacos, sand in my toes, waves, sailing, and oysters. I’m not one for resolutions, but I do think I could get on board with more ocean in my life in 2012.

Have a sparkly New Year!

happy new year

Happy New Year, everyone! Many many thanks for reading my little blog! I am truly thankful for your support, warm wishes and sweet comments. I have some fun things planned for 2010, but I must admit that due to a bad cold over the holidays I am quite behind … but stay tuned and you’ll see some nice improvements to the blog over the next month! Thanks again for all your support, and have a wonderful 2010!

decorate: violet swallow queen ornament

I have a serious soft spot for Christmas ornaments. I’d keep them out all year if I could (and, honestly, I DO keep a few out on my desk all year). Some people (i.e. my husband) think I have a serious problem. I like all styles: handmade, glittery, modern, rustic, vintage, felt, embroidered. Throughout the season I’ll be posting some of my favorites, like this gorgeous handmade ornament by The Night Jar.

The Violet Swallow Queen holiday Christmas ornament is a print of the artist’s original work, which she affixed to a wood heart and decorated with German glass glitter. She’ll inscribe the back of the ornament (free!) for you to make it a dear heirloom. It’s available here on Etsy for $18. Also on my wish list:the violet swallow queen print would look great in my soon-to-be-painted bedroom. Swoon.

new on etsy: glitter christmas ornaments

I heart glitter, and so does my mom. We spent some time over the holiday weekend decorating ornaments together for her ETSY shop. The wood ornaments are completely covered with super fine glitter. We had so much fun! Please visit her shop, SainteBeatrice. Merci!

inspiration: do something about it

do something about it print by orange beautiful  • photo by Vallentyne Photography

One of my favorite things in my studio is this Do Something About It gocco print by Orange Beautiful. The glitter E’s were a Christmas gift from my mom last year. It’s a nice reminder that you are responsible for your own destiny. I firmly believe that you make your own luck.

I, and my entire house, are glittered top to bottom, but I did manage to finish making glitter christmas ornaments for the handmade ornament exchange over the weekend!

handmade holiday ornaments


Since I signed up for a handmade holiday ornament exchange a few weeks ago I have been trying to decide what to make. I’m not quite sure what I’ll make yet, but I’m fairly certain it will involve glitter! Last year I made a 3-d paper snowflake, and I may do that again. Or perhaps a paper cone filled with candy. I’d love to make some felt animal ornaments, but I think that would take too long and I need to make a bunch. Do you have any other ideas?
