she's crafty

I don't consider myself too crafty, mostly because I'm very impatient. But, gimme a can of spray paint and IT'S ON! I didn't want to throw out my cute white pumpkins so I did what anyone addicted to gold spray paint would do. I sprayed those bad boys and made my very own Glamman or Snowkin or Glumpkin:)

I thought he looked kinda creepy without a mouth so I added one...

coulumbus, j t'aime

A few weeks ago I traveled with my hubby to Columbus to catch Ray LaMontagne at the Palace Theatre. We decided to make it an overnight excursion. We love Columbus and I'm determined to convince him to move up North! Isn't funny how a city a few hours away can have a completely different vibe to it?

I meant to bring my camera but since I waited until the last minute to pack I totally forgot it:( Usually when we are there we wander around the Short North district. This time we explored German Village. Before the concert we ate at G Michael's Bistro {our meal was delicious and the service was great!} and I spotted Pistacia Vera, a cute dessert boutique, as we were searching for a parking spot. Funny how I can spot a macaron from yards away in a moving vehicle:) I treated myself to a few that night and the next day on our way home I stopped in to buy a box to take home.

We also managed to fit in a visit to the Wexner Center for the Arts  to see the Annie Leibovitz exhibit(amazing!) It runs through Dec 30 and if you're near Columbus please check it out!

Not bad for a 24 hour excursion;)

These photos were taken a few weeks ago, the beginning of the month I think. It seems like ages ago-winter felt more like autumn, Christmas still seemed like it was far enough away that I could get everything done. Literally, the world was a different place. But here we are on a sobering Monday, things still need to get done- presents need to be purchased, package need to be wrapped and I have a stack of cards that need is different, but, surprisingly the same.

*i don't really let my political flag fly in this space, but if you are so inclined please take minute to sign this petition to urge our government to seriously consider new gun control legislation. thank you
