Stupid 30-Day-No-Shopping Challenge!   I love Etsy though, if you want to splurge- (meaning, you can unlike myself) do so with an amazing small-business owner that crafts her own goods.  I truly believe that a few treats once in awhile will help your frugality goals in the long run.  All work and no play is not good- but at the very least, enjoy some Etsylicious eye-candy 🙂







Dainty shaped soaps and guest towels are no longer for Grandma’s guest room.  These colorful soapy confections are great for a new generation.

Okay, so now we know how average we are with our cellphones and our grotesquely excessive water usage- what are you going to do to make your weekend and your life above average?

An AMAZING handmade valentine from my bestie!

The snow in Chicago is finally melting- not being able to use the sidewalks was getting pretty old!

These little baddies are my newest O.P.I. colors:   You Don’t Know Jacques!, MyOwn Private JetLincoln Park After Dark (Matte).  I am obsessed with “My Own Private Jet” and “You Don’t Know Jacques.”

This picture doesn’t even do this gorgeous hand-painted yarn from Uruguay justice- in real life the colors are bright and vivid.  This is done with about 48 stitches on size 7 needles.
