St Ignatius Chapel by Steven Holl at Seattle University--Now That's Architecture

Holiday Anxiety!!!

I am excited to announce a joint venture etsy shop with my mom and I called Holiday Anxiety. When I was little I took holiday enthusiasm to a new level. I was the kid that woke up at 5 on Christmas morning, or my birthday, or a family member's birthday, or maybe even Thanksgiving.... I have always loved the special days of the year. I thought it was so wonderful to have designated days for celebrating and spending quality time with family. My family on the other hand had to put up with my over exuberant holiday energy and coined the phrase Holiday Anxiety. My mom is very patient and has always put up with the holiday excitement!!!! I think most people experience some type of holiday anxiety- whether it be positive or negative- everyone has a heightened sense of stress and joy around the holidays! Let Holiday Anxiety help you celebrate instead of stress! We will provide printable items- so even if you have procrastinated, you don't need to be anxious!

My mom and I will be providing printable and hard copy paper goods for all types of Holidays and even the special everyday events you need! We have a few items up- but please stay tuned for more great designs from Holiday Anxiety!!!!!!

Black Eyed Pea Salad and My Cooking Assistant Mr. Murphy

This Black Eyed Pea salad was very yummy! A combination of barley, black eyed peas, red kidney beans, green pepper....Cumin and Red Pepper flakes made it relatively spicy as well. Very tasty!

A little handmade gift for a friend...

One of my close friend's baby shower is this weekend! I knit her little one a purple sweater and hat with little sheep buttons. Their nursery is going to have sheep all over it and I thought the baby needed a matching outfit! I hope that she likes the little set. Mums the word until Saturday...when she opens it up!

This was a fun little cardigan that took no time! Knit in one piece from the top down with worsted yarn! Really fun and a great kick start to fall knitting!
