I had the most awesome weekend. One of my favorite bands, Scattered Trees announced that they are disbanding & starting a new project (On And On). I was heartbroken, but when I realized that their second last show was right here in the 612 I flipped my shit, for lack of a better term. I remember the exact time & place where I first heard these guys & their music has meant a lot to me.
Miles Nielson and the Rusted Hearts opened for the show & as soon as my eye caught their clarinet & soprano sax they had me spell bound. I'm a sucker for true musicians & they did not disappoint. $20 later I was 2 CD's richer.
All I can give are a farewell & a warm hello to my old & new favorites. If you've been following me for (quite) a while, you've seen Scattered Trees before but my motto is Never Enough so here's s'more, in tribute to the old & the new.

Update:: I just realized that these videos may not work, but I promise it'll be worth your while if you follow them to youtube. Sorry bout that.
I had THE best 21st birthday ever! Every text & line dropped on my facebook made it special, so thanks guys!
Everybody should get to hit the sauce a little hard on their 21st birthday, don't you agree? Just incase you find yourself in a new city on a Friday, Saturday night or even a Wasted Wednesday or Thirsty Thursday, don't worry I got you covered.
I've been raiding the Budget Living section of Apartment Therapy's website. They are chock-full of DIY ideas over there. I think I've nailed these two down as my favorites. Follow the links below for the full how-to's. I'm itching to get around to making a contact paper laptop cover to hide all the dings my computer is sporting.
Internet gods, I need your help. I stumbled across this ensamble on Pinterest & I fell in love with it. Pretty much every one of these pieces is a basic staple of any closet, but mine has a notable lack of white shirts. I have no idea where to find a shirt like the one pictured. Help a girl out?
Guess who just opened her Etsy Shop?? This girl!! I am super stoked. Last weekend I decided to make myself a hammock chair just for fun, because I'd never completed a macrame project that big before. I fell in love with the finished product. Like seriously, I have not been able to take my eyes off of it for the last week.
As it happens my life took an unfortunate turn of events the week before. I suddenly found myself unemployeed & with a huge amount of time on my hands. When I got the hammock done I was on a crafter's high, reveling in the finished product. I was really let down afterwards, all I wanted to do was keep on creating.
I have posted about Etsy more times than I care to count, even saying that I wanted to open my own shop. It took me a bit, but last night I finally connected the dots!
