The leaves are changing

The holidays and I have a very love-hate relationship. I love buying gifts, decorating, and visiting family. While absolutely hating traffic, waiting in lines, and family members not telling me what they want for Christmas (cough cough Mack). So I shall spend my days attempting to make gifts (Oh yea, did I tell you I'm doing a "Handmade Christmas")! Hopefully every gift will be handmade, except for select few, meaning all the men.

Dinner Party : Hot Pot Style

So our amazing friends Matt and Claire (who live 2 hours away) came down for the holidays. It was so sweet of them to think of my lifestyle to bring an entirely vegetarian hot pot. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the meal.  I was pleasantly surprised with the array of vegetables and different types of tofu, and hope that this tradition between friends continues.

Semi Studio Tour

 Every crafter has to have a space that is just for them, to be inspired, to work in or to just relax. When looking for houses I knew I had to have a studio (and so did Mack). It has been "in progress" since we moved in, and I'm sure I'll never be fully done with it. So here is a small glimpse at OhSo Studio!


(No visit to my studio is complete without Canary trying to get into stuff. )

P.S. - with the holidays getting closer and closer I may not be able to post as much (sad face) BUT! I will try to post more from my phone and take some pictures every now and then of the amazing inspiration that has been coming my way!

There are times when a relationship is hard, you feel like everything is bursting at the seams. There are times when it is normal, nothing interesting, same old same old. Then there are times when it thrives, when there has been no higher point than the one you are at now, this was tonight. I always know how important he is but sometimes it hits harder than ever, how much he means to me, how strong he is for the both of us,  these moments make me so glad I found him. I try to let him know how much he means to me with handmade things (cards,doodles, shadow boxes) or just stopping time to tell him I love him. He is a man, most men don't ever know what to say (and although he is guilty of this too) he really comes through when I need him most. He is my inspiration, he is my air, he is my everything, he is my rock.

Im gonna wreck it!

Last Friday we went to the Drive-in again! I had so much fun and was so excited to see Wreck-it-Ralph and Hotel Transylvania. Mack and I have been so excited to see Wreck-it-Ralph since Disney, when they had a exhibition up. Mack being into old school games, was eager to see what characters where to be included in the movie. He was happy to see characters from Street Fighter and Q-bert. The movie was really awesome and lived up to the standards of Pixar and easily will have the legacy Toy Story has.

October is gone, as you can see it took me a while to admit it. I love October, it's sad to see it go. However,  November is here and with that a new segment I will be doing every month, I will upload some Instagram photos that highlight the month. (Since this is the 1st time the layout may change month to month) (From top left to bottom right) : 1. Canary and Boots admiring our new coffee table. 2. An amazing vintage camera I thrifted. 3. A Mickey Mouse pumpkin at Disney 4. Our mantle all dressed for the Halloween. 

A special thanks to : Pugly Pixel for the tape strips pattern:   http://www.puglypixel.com/2011/02/17/free-clip-art-tape-strips-patterns/

I love thrifting, I mean who doesn't! One of my favorite places to go is right over the 13th Street bridge from Downtown Augusta, SPCA Treasure Chest. Mack and I happened upon this place after an eye appointment one day. There were a couple of women talking outside, one of them holding open the door. Us, loving adventure and new things decided to stop in and I immediately fell in love. Glassware, animal supplies, clothes books, furniture , household appliances (we got our washing machine and Macks studio couch here) and so much more! Going in every week or so we've gotten to know the staff pretty well, they are all so sweet and I find myself wanting to go just to catch up with them! Not only are the prices great but all the money you spend goes to helping animals! If you would like to donate,  .adopt, or shop the store is located at 519 Georgia Avenue in North Augusta, SC.

The Wall is back.

This is one of my cats, Canary. She would appreciate it if everyone held in there while I get my inspiration back, because the Wall has come back.

I loved Halloween this year, since we have the house I was able to pass out candy as a home owner!! After a whole whopping 10 kids we went with my mom and other sisters to trick-or-treat. I had so much fun, but my least favorite part is that Halloween is now over, but we always have next year! Plus I am super excited the other holidays are coming up, I already hear Christmas music!
