Some snippets from my life lately…

For a while now I’ve been going crazy for kraft! Last year I started offering gift wrapping in kraft boxes… tie them off with some lace or twine and they’re adorable! When I started going to markets I wanted to come up with a fun way to up-play some kraft bags, so here they are!
And here they are in action! Yay for kraft!
My mom made this recipe for me a few weeks ago and I fell in love! She got it here. I ventured out and made it tonight, so I thought I’d share. Even if you’re not eating Paleo, you should try it… it’s seriously amazing.
What you’ll need:
So, first mix everything together except for the meat and unsweetened barbeque sauce …
Stir well, add meat (I used beef, but you can use turkey, elk, bison, etc.) and mix together (I use my hands). Form the mixture into loafs (I do 2 so I don’t have to cook it as long). Spread sauce evenly over the loafs. It calls for unsweetened barbeque sauce, but we like to use this organic chili sauce. Combined with the chipotle seasoning, it gives it a nice bite! Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Cover cookie sheet with tin foil and bake for 90 minutes. Viola! Delicious-ness for everyone!
This is my bi-monthly round-up of Instagram photos! I’m enjoying finding new filters and photography apps! I recently discovered “Afterglow”. What are your favorites?

I can’t really call it a “studio” because that sounds really fancy and legit (which mine is not) and I can’t really call it an “office” because that sounds too official. I just call it my workspace. I love it… which is a good thing because I spend a very large portion of my time here!
This is where I keep my completed items… that way I don’t have to make them all to order. It saves me A LOT of time!
And this is my view… it’s so much better when the trees are green and the roses and lilacs are blooming and my potted plants aren’t empty. I’m not complaining though! I do love to look out my window a lot!
So, there you have it! Have you done a post on your workspace? If you have, leave me a comment with the link… I’d LOVE to see it!
*I originally published this post in September, 2011. I’ve updated the photos and where I’m at today, but this is my story.
A little background on myself: when I was little, I used to play games with my brothers like “school” or “grocery store” or “library”. Of course I was always the teacher or store clerk or librarian. When I was a bit older and we were able to buy a computer, I played games like “Zoo Tycoon” and “Sim City”. I was also the QUEEN of lemonade stands in our neighborhood. We didn’t just sell lemonade, we were a full service snack and lemonade stand. I even used to do my brothers’ school fundraisers for them! All of this to say that since the beginning of me, I’ve had a passion for creating and selling. I love to access the creative side of my brain. I get antsy if I can’t create something… anything. At the same time, I love selling things… I’m not a “salesperson” per se ( I could NEVER sell cars or magazine subscriptions), but I get excited when I can offer a product that people want to have. I believe that anyone that wants to have a successful business needs to have both of these attributes, or have a partner (or something similar) that compliments one or the other.
