Showing Some Etsy Love

I wanted to post links to some of my favorite Etsy sellers so that you guys can order some of their awesome goodies!

Kim is a super cool, really friendly girl who makes amazing resin jewelry. I have two of her necklaces and several rings and love them all; the quality is wonderful, and her designs are so colorful and pretty!

Stephanie lives just outside of Paris and makes some of the most detailed, realistic polymer clay food jewelry and doll house miniatures that I've ever seen. Her earrings are awesome; I have cake slices, croissants, vanilla ice cream cones, and soon, French baguettes!

Sue makes some of the best smelling bath and body products that I've found. Y'all know that I love foodie scents and am very picky when it comes to what I think smells realistic and what doesn't, and Sue's stuff is almost always on the mark! Her prices are great, her turnaround time is quick, and her products are high quality (I really like her perfumes and her scrubs). Her Frosted Pink Cupcakes is one of my favorite scents (surprise surprise!), and scents such as Berry Sublime, Thin Mint Cookies, Sweet Treat, and Cotton Candy Twist are awesome too. Click on "Profile" on the right hand side of the screen to see the full list of products and scents she offers.

Most cupcakes are happy and carefree. Some, however, start hanging with the wrong crowd and before you know it they're dying their frosting grey and wearing black sprinkles. Each 12-3/4" x 16-3/4" x 5-1/2 faux canvas bag features eight good cupcakes and

Cute, Sturdy Bag

Pros: Cute, Roomy, Durable

Best Uses: Carrying books

I love this bag! It's sturdier than many reusable bags like it, and the design is hilarious. I like taking it to the library to lug around my books, and its size makes it good for light grocery shopping too.


My Review of MALT SALT

Originally submitted at Perpetual Kid

Nothing like a shot of Malt Vinegar to liven up those fish and chips! Except for the soggy mess you are left with...! Take a stand against soggy fish, fries and anything else you pour malt vinegar on with Malt Salt, the world's first malt vinegar flavor

Pretty Yummy!

This stuff is pretty good! I love vinegar on veggie salads in the summer, and this is an excellent way of getting the vinegar flavor without getting overly sodden veggies. The texture is very fine - powdery actually - so it absorbs quickly. I might like it to be a little stronger, but I do enjoy it a lot.

Most Sugary Dessert Creation Ever?

There's this girl who does a weekly column on Serious Eats (one of my favorite web sites) that focuses on a dessert creation she's come up with. This week's submission is... well... fascinating and disgusting! It's such a sugar bomb, such a conglomeration of artery-clogging decadence that I had to share it with you all. Behold, the Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict. I mean, I loved Cadbury Creme Eggs (back when I could eat them without threat of blood sugar revolt), and the component parts are solid, but combining them all together in one dessert? I have to think the recipe creator wasn't really serious... right?? Anyway, enjoy the fat/calorie/sugar fest!

Austin and a Whirly Pop

I got this lollipop for Taylor, but I had to take a few pics of it before I gave it to her... then I got the idea to put it next to Austin and have him "pose" with it. Hilarious!

Snowy Pictures!

I'm so slack - I just now uploaded the pictures I took of the snowfall we had last March onto my computer! I kinda forgot about them, given that they were taken on another memory card than the one that is typically in my camera. I absolutely love all these shots, so much so that I submitted two of them in a contest where the winner gets their winning photo put onto a really nice canvas (cross your fingers!). Here are my favorite shots from the snowfall (the top two are the ones I entered in the contest).
