Save the Date design ideas.....

Wedding planning is really fun but its hard to narrow down style/color from all the inspiration out there! I am working on our wedding website and I have made good progress on the invites. I need to pick a color theme however for the bridesmaids dresses and a tartan to tie it altogether.

NYC is calling me.....

I really miss NYC. We have been considering moving back for some time now as California just isn't cutting it. I think in the summer/fall I will check out some possible job opportunities and look into apartments in Manhattan as opposed to Brooklyn.

Floor Loom is Complete!

It took almost ten hours but we got there!! It was really satisfying to build my first floor loom from scratch, and I mean scratch! The numerous parts came and required sanding and oil treatment before assembly. The great part about the building process is I no longer feel intimidated by any part of the loom and can easily adjust, fix the mechanisms now with full understanding of how they work. I am so happy to finally start weaving!!

Moules Frites

I have been trying to get into seafood more lately as I have always felt I was missing out on a huge range of amazing food. Well I was right!! My hubby made me Moules Frites last night with a side of flatiron steak and it was amazing! I was so surprised to actually like the mussels who knows what I'll try next!
