Origami Crane Garland

I finally got some time to work on a new project that I've had in mind for months now! :) I thought I would branch out and do something weird instead of painting... Although for sure I need to make some more time with that too.

Newspaper origami cranes, made from newspapers from the weekly newspaper where I work. They're fun to do and I especially enjoy folding them from our map page. I have one hanging alongside the curtains at the window by my desk but they could look pretty anywhere.

Mix & Match Cards


I just added a new thing to my etsy store where you can buy cards with your choice of designs on it, it's a pack of 10 cards and you can choose up to 10 designs. I thought it would be a fun mix-and-match type thing.

And also, I just ate a whole little carton of raspberries. Yummm!

San Diego Wild Animal Park

IMG_5890

I went to the Wild Animal Park last weekend for a friend's birthday! It was fun and I love that place. We got a year pass- seemed very cost effective to get a dual pass since it was $10 off and only a little bit more money than if you bought two single-day passes. Plus, you get to go to the SD Zoo with the pass as well which makes me happy.

Don't ask me why the Wild Animal Park has an enormous yellow balloon, but they do. This is also one of my favorite photos from the trip!

I love the Wild Animal Park, because I've always felt like that's how zoos should all be. The animals have so much room to live in, they have plains and they can socialize and interact with other species like in real life. Tiny cages in zoos make me so sad, but I love to see the animals.

This guy was really asking to have his picture taken. Who am I to say no? He's very pretty.

My camera has no zoom whatsoever (I'm about to get a super-awesome-mega-DSLR though!) so this is the best shot I could get of the lionesses sitting on the jeep. Aww.

I'm in a Treasury!

Created by fellow etsytwitter team member, MySassyGlass. Some cool finds for mother's day in there, I love all the deep reds and happy pinks (as always, I think I'm particularly color-obsessed in general)



I would love any support & clicks you can give it! Click the image to go to the treasury page. :) Being in a treasury is always so exciting.

EtsyTwitter Team's cute shop of the week :)

I really like this week's etsytwitter shop of the week! Bellflower Textiles (see her blog here and her etsy shop here) uses such cute bright colors and I especially love those oranges and blues together as in the pillow pictured here. And I would love to have one of those puppy coffee sleeves. And a real puppy. Those two things, and I will be a happy girl!

If you haven't heard of the etsy twitter team, its a really fun team for those who like and use both twitter and etsy, and we recently got our own flickr group too which is really fun to look through. There's tons of team treasuries every week too which is always really fun, so if you're interested you should check it out. :)
