    I'm not sure where to start. Part of me wants to share this, but the other part of me is hesitant to. I've been really worried about our teenager the past few days. I go through these cycles of worrying, being sad, and then getting really mad. I

  • Forever 21 Cardigan
    on Feb 5, 2009
    I bought this cardigan online from Forever 21 a few weeks ago and I love it! The price has actually gone down even more to $11.99. It comes in navy blue and red, and I bought the red one. I've worn it over a lacy cami because the lace shows underneat
  • Loving Looks
    on Feb 4, 2009
    I thought this article which I found on was quite interesting. It outlines the ways children show how they love their parents through different stages. My heart absolutely melts when baby Mon-Chi-Chi looks into my eyes. It usually happ...
  • Jewel of India Bracelets
    on Feb 4, 2009
    I absolutely love this bracelet pattern. Not only does it use herringbone stitch, which I've always found very satisfying to create, but it looks like something you would find the women in the mountains of Rajasthan wearing. I got this pattern from t

  • Supernanny!
    on Feb 3, 2009
    I think we may have found the 2nd best person to Supernanny! I love watching that show because she has hands on techniques that seem to be very useful. I say "seem", because I haven't had the chance to try any of them yet. Our teenager, Pri
  • Antique Crystal Earrings
    on Feb 3, 2009
    I made these earrings day before yesterday. I used 20 g square brass wire to create the ear post as well as the links. I like the antique look of this wire, and thought it went well with the brown coloring of the beads. I used 3mm by 6mm faceted rond...

    We just picked up Princess-pie from a Sunday afternoon birthday party. As soon as she got in the car she said "can you turn up the volume?!"What? What happened to "hello", "thank you for picking me up", "I had fun at t
  • Parallel Chain Necklace Tweaked
    on Feb 1, 2009
    Here is another necklace that I made based on the parallel chain necklace design. I modified it, as you can see in the photo. I used stainless steel jump rings- 7mm and 3.6 mm sizes. At the point of the triangle, I attached 3 black glass beads and 3...

    on Jan 30, 2009
    Our "skater-girl" childcare provider was much more impressive yesterday. As soon as I walked through the door, I heard her chatting it up with our Mon-Chi-Chi. She was holding Mon-Chi-Chi in her arms and Mon-Chi was looking into her eyes and s

    on Jan 29, 2009
    I thought I should post an update about how our childcare situation is going. I was very hopeful in the beginning, but slowly, some concerns are starting to emerge. Surprise...surprise. Like I said...we used a website called to find nanny/ba...
  • Finally finished!
    on Jan 29, 2009
    Here are some photos of the parallel chain necklaces that I created. I gave this necklace to my friend, Chris, because she fell in love with it the very first time she saw it. It's made out of smaller jump rings than the next necklace, and I used bot
