• Free Christmas Labels •

Another free download! These little gift tags are perfect for your neighborhood gift exchange. Put one on the homemade goodies you take around. Choose from either the round hang tags on page 1 of the PDF, or use page 2 to print directly onto 2X4" Avery labels (Product 8163). Sorry I didn't have it finished a little sooner. If it's too late, save it for next year.

< Inaluxe >

I'm getting really into this whole giclée thing, so I'm extra excited when I discover the grear and affordable art that this makes available. Look at these great pieces (only $35 each) from Inaluxe, an Australia-based shop. Keep in mind these are not printed on canvas; they just look like they are. I'm going to be presenting an extensive line of art on my Etsy shop that is giclée printed on actual canvas. If you are interested in having any of my work printed on canvas, just let me know!

free shipping

Just thought I'd share: Carter's and Osh Kosh are offering free shipping on all orders today only.

From Rikrak.


Alright folks, the waiting is over. The fear. The doubts. The sheer laziness. I finally made my own yogurt.

Some facts:
1: it worked.
2: 2 quarts cost less than $2 to make*
3: it was easy
4: I have eaten it and am still alive
5: I had all the required equipment on hand
6: it was delicious

*(I get milk for $1.99/gallon)

I'm just putting this out there to plant a seed of encouragement for all of you still eating nasty tasting, sugary, overly packaged, expensive, American yogurt. This is not an attack on you personally, just your yogurt. I have been shoving it down, too, though I am not at all ignorant of what good yogurt can be (you've been to Europe?). I kept saying I was going to start making my own yogurt, but I just kept putting it off. But after watching our recycling been overflow with little tiny Activia and Tillamook cups (I am SO sick of rinsing those things out), I thought, "Enough." This isn't one of those activities that Martha Stewart puts out there as domestic simplicity and then, after using up half your Saturday, spending $89 on supplies, and trashing your kitchen, you realize it just wasn't worth it. This is actually super easy. I used this recipe by Crystal Miller (just don't add as much sugar as they say; way too much).
