I just bought this... pink of course! It's a gorillapod and is a bendy tripod. I hope it works, if not I'm sure I will find it amusing. It kind of reminds me of that small bad alien from Transformers.

Frenzy the Transformer (I placed a convenient arrow as to not confuse Frenzy and Shia LeBeouf)

Happy Birthday, Belli Button!

My friend Dana's daughter turned one today...I present Miss Bella Marie Bail (wearing a Mandizzle headband. :) )
We took her out for an exciting first birthday lunch at Panera. She chose to put a sock in her mouth. It's her birthday...she could do what she wanted!

Cleveland Handmade Challenge: May Flowers

I am a member of the amazing Cleveland Handmade Team, and some of us are participating in the "May Flowers" Challenge where we each submit a design that reflects the challenge theme. I submitted one of my "flora" headbands. Please visit the link below and vote for your favorite. I won't be mad if you vote for me. :)

Take some time and look around the beautiful shops. There is a ton of talent in Cleveland!

Hey, Big Pup

I was having a weird night (almost overdrawn in my bank account...went to deposit money at the atm and they were out of envelopes/went to return the too-small pants I bought on Saturday...left them sitting on my dining room table...bought the correct sizes anyway (didn't help the bank account situation) etc.)

Anyway, I walked out of the craft store where I had to pick up some things (it was only $13, but still didn't help my bank account) and I saw this big fella in this little car. It was so adorable. I know you can barely see him with my camera phone pic, but he (or she) was a pretty Great Dane, and cheered me right up. :)

So, what did you do this weekend?

This was the first weekend where I haven't had some sort of work event going on in a few what did I do with all of that time off? (Note: If you are looking for excitement and crazy stories, you may want to stop reading now.)

Friday (After Work)

*Watched Slumdog Millionaire

*Watched Nick and Norah's Infinte Playlist


*Went to Donato's with Scott and stuffed my face. So delicious.

*Went fabric shopping and made everyone in line angry because I had so much stuff for the lady to cut.

*Returned a shirt at the mall, and walked out with 2 pairs of pants, a shirt, 2 tanks, and a scarf (all for under $70 or $85 or something!) This was the first time I've purchased clothing for myself in MONTHS (basically.)


*Watched the Bulls/Celtics game (kind of.)

*Went for a quick trip to the grocery store to get a few items (so I say, $101 later.) Literally haven't been there in at least a month, either.

*Watched Slumdog again

*Enjoyed a delicious Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Bar

*Watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall

*Made headbands until 6:00am


*Made headbands ALL day

*Watched the Hawks/Heat game (kind of.)

*Watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall again

*Watched lots of reality tv

*Talked to my Mom on the Dad got on and told me that I needed to turn it on TNT to watch the amazing movie that was on. I later found out that it was Stomp the Yard, haha.

*Made a promise to myself that I would go to bed by 11:30pm (the time is currently 12:20.)

Now, that I've completely bored you - please let me know what fun you had this weekend! :)
