So before ya'll designate me as "extra" for celebrating my birthday all month long, I just want to let you know that I'm turning 25. That's right- it's a milestone year. I'm a quarter of a century old! And I'm a year from being kicked of my mom's insurance, and I really should be in … Continue reading It’s my birthday and I’ll party all month if I want to….
Hey, everyone! Hope you're doing well and making it through March. Can you believe April is just around the corner? February dragged a lot, but this month is just FLYING!

Happy Monday, my fellow unicorns! Hope you're able to stumble around gracefully after the loss of one hour of sleep. If you don't know, I frequently donate items to my alma mater's production of the Vagina Monologues.

If you follow me on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), you may have noticed an abundance of pink last month. And not the usual hearts and flowers associated with Valentine's Day, but a little something more.....(re) productive. February is generally centered around couples in love, but it's also the month of V-Day. And no, I'm … Continue reading Power to the Uterus
Wow. Has it really been 10 months since I last posted? It seems like so much has happened and I'm not even sure where to begin.
Hello everyone! Taking my idea from last month with Donatello, I have decided to revisit another old pattern that I found when I was just learning to crochet. These are "Pop Tart Cats." I made them for a feline loving friend four years ago for her birthday. Honestly, most of my crochet went to friends … Continue reading #ThrowbackPatternThursday : Poptart Cats
