Happy Birthday To Me...

Holy crap, I am 23 today! Eeeeeeek. Just had to share how cute Etsy is: when you log in you get a little welcome message wishing you a Happy Birthday! Can you find me? I am on there twice, with my seller and buyer account!

Also when I got in my car this morning to go to work, I found this waiting for me!!! The new Yael Naim CD!!! Hubby put it in my CD player for me so it started playing as soon as I turned on the car! He is so cute! I have been listening to it all day at work! Check it out if you haven't already, its great! She also sings in Hebrew.

I have to show off the other stuff I got as well: an awesome Slash T-Shirt that I have been wanting forever! I love Guns N' Roses - what can I say?! Oh guess what I heard on the radio this morning? Dr. Pepper has offered Axl Rose a deal that if he finishes his CD "Chinese Democracy" which has been in the makings for 17 years (!), they will give each person in the United States a FREE can off Dr. Pepper! How awesome is that? I am not a fan of Dr. P but the owner must be a pretty dedicated fan of Axl Rose!!!

Also I got an awesome Hello Kitty easter basket filled with my favorite candy - which means it was all Reeses's Peanut Butter cup related, and these earrings!!! AHHHHH! I love Tokidoki, and I love even more that Jake knows exactly what I like! Yup, I think he is definitely a keeper! Thanks babe!

He is throwing me a Hello Kitty themed party on Saturday, so I will keep you posted... It snowed today so not too sure how its gonna work out but we'll see!

She's Here...

Yay, yay, yay, yay!!!

My Blythe is here!!! I can't believe I forgot to write about her! I haven't thought of a name yet. Help me? She is the "Magic Wand" edition. She is a little magician and comes with a dove to pull out of her top hat and cards to do card tricks with. She's already pulled a few fast ones on me. She likes to move around - and no, I am NOT kidding.

I Love My Husband

I have to show off what my hubby made me! I wanted to make a business card or a post card that I could put in with my finished orders... Just something pretty to look at with all my Etsy and blog info - and he did it - and totally surpassed my expectations!!!

What do you think? I am trying to convince him to open up his own Etsy shop. He also did my banner. Tell him how cool he is so he joins Etsy!!!

Brooches - Badges - Pins

Finally after what seems like weeks and weeks, I finally finished photographing, cropping, editing, and listing my new pins!!! I made these in a spurt of desperation. I had so many pent up ideas in my head and I needed to let them out. I am not really sure why but I am incredibly satisfied with the way these turned out. I truly think its the colors. I am so sick of winter, everything is so ugly, and dirty and these just came out so cheerful!

This is my Navy brooch, because it seems nautical to me for some reason. Plus I have a new obsession with mustard yellow and I think that navy blue and green are phenomenal. I am a nerd. Who uses words like "phenomenal"? Oy...

This one is The Ribbon pin, has a ribbon tag on it. I know, I suck at life. But focus on the part that he is completely happy, not the part that I have not one ounce of literary creativity in me!!! Also, I don't know why I insist on calling them hims. Weird...

This is my Owlie brooch. I love him. Mostly because he is mustard yellow (again with the yellow!) and because there is an owl on him. Yes I am obsessed with owls, I know.

You can go see the rest HERE

Touched for the very first time

Eeeeek! First blog post ever! Ok, I can do this...
For those of you that don't know me, my name is Maura. I am 22 years old (23 on March 27th!). I am a HUGE procrastinator, so I hope I stick this out! I'm not really sure if I want to keep this purely Etsy related, or if I want to add personal tid bits, so keep posted to find out what I decide! Just too forewarn you, I am obsessed with cuteness, and this blog might want to make you puke. I am known for that. Not in a bulimic sort of way but in a "Oh my god, that is so freaking cute I am going to puke!" sort of way - so get a bucket just in case!
Hmm, what else should you be warned about? Oh I hear I am not as funny as I think I am and that I have horrible taste in music. Also, I am ALWAYS right. Ok that's it for me, for now... Oh yeah and this is me:

I am married to an awesome dudesky named Jacob. We've been married for a year and a half now. He plays in a band called Black Eyed Susan: (That's his 2nd wife, its ok, we have an understanding). He pretty much drinks coffee, plays guitar, eats and watches TV. Yeah, we live a pretty exciting life...
