Holidays = Excuses to Make Stuff

Oh dear, oh dear. My trip to San Francisco this past weekend has resulted in super sleepy eyes every day this week.

It was well worth it, but still, no bueno! Sleepy eyes and a sore throat to boot. What the heck. But, being the positive person that I am, I can say that the one (and possibly only) good thing about being so sleepy is how my sleepy state makes everything seem really funny. These spontaneous bouts of silliness I am experiencing are definitely helping me with a new blog project I am working on with a friend of mine. It’s going to be fun, informative, but mostly just ridiculous.


Vintage 4th of July Palette from COLOURlovers

Hey! It’s a holiday weekend?  Yeah it is! You and I both know that crafters love nothing more than a good holiday. Holidays = excuses to make stuff. For realz. For the past few years I’ve been aching to dress up as Uncle Sam for the 4th of July. I just might attempt it this year. Last year I was let down by the always reliable Party City. No 4th of July decor WHATSOEVER. What’s up with that, Party City? I shouldn’t be going there anyway. Bad Tati!

But, don’t you love this color palette from COLOURlovers? I wish our flag was made using these colors. Sorry America! Please don’t stone me for my blasphemous opinions.  I really do love our country and our colors… but sometimes, we get a little too cheesy with our patriotism. This 4th of July, let’s be patriotic in a classy way. Eh? Yeah? We’ll see what happens.

I’m so excited for the 3-day weekend! Yes, I am excited to catch up on sleep, but also just to get things done… and post the results! I’ll be kicking this weekend off with dinner with a friend tonight (I am Maid of Honor in her wedding, so I’m excited to talk about her upcoming pre-wedding in Vegas and lots and lots of other wedding planning things). Two of my cousins are flying down from Alaska to visit the family, so I’ll be seeing them on Saturday, yay! And, Sunday I will be spending quality time with my Orange County ladies. Time in between will be spent between web projects and sewing projects. Ugh! I can’t wait for the weekend to begin! Happy Thursday everyone!
