Money Woes Turn Happy!

Books Are Fun! Reading Is Cool!

My crafty pal Jen of Naughty Secretary Club just emailed me to let me know that she's doing a book signing at Make on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 3-5pm. She doesn't want only her parents to show up (c'mon now, she's a crafty legend!), so let's show her some Big D love and show up in droves!

Check out her blog about the event HERE.

And her book HERE (but wait to buy it at the signing, if you can make it).

I managed a book store in college, and let me tell you that book signings are really a lot of fun - esp. when there are cupcakes!

Front Page Treasury

Etsy.com has a program where users can create "treasuries," or collections of their favorite items sold on the handmade marketplace site. It's usually v. competitive to snag a spot, but I managed to get one a couple days ago. My topic of choice was Peacocks, and lo! and behold! When I wasn't looking, Etsy admin chose my treasury to be featured on the front page. Yay me! And yay! to all those peacocks I chose.

Thanks to my pal Patricia of Karma Crochet for telling me about it and making me a screenshot. Click on the pic above to see it large and in charge.

Wrapping It Up

One of my favorite blogs is calling it a day. Craving Anthropologie was started back in 2005 by a woman named Jade who loves the sophisticated urban-chic store almost as much as I do.

As most good things must come to an end, so too does her blog, which chronicles the latest offerings from Anthropologie and praises them to the sky. I'll miss you Craving Anthropologie. Perhaps I'll fill the gap with an Anthro-loving blog of my own...
