To my dear sister, Virginia

Virginia is my middle sister (I'm the baby of three girls, Audra being the oldest). She had Moses 6 months ago and has been working hard to make his life wonderful by putting him (and her husband D'Arcy) before herself. She took a step back and realized what she wanted for herself was just that-herself! She wanted to own it. She wanted to be herself. She wanted to break through barriers. So she started to do it! Audra, Virginia (+Moses in tow), and I jumped in the car in Austin and got Virginia's nose pierced. It looks awesome, and it started something. I wanted to help her by putting together an inspiration board of what her look, her style, her sass, encompasses. Yesterday she did a major purge in her closet, and she feels like a new woman! Go Virginia! I'm also working on a soundtrack for Virginia, but haven't quite finished it yet. This is the first of many inspiration boards for her :)

Window Shopping

That's what I'll be doing for the next 40 days and 40 nights...


let's be honest, I will ALWAYS be window shopping McQueens. Especially because the prices will probably skyrocket after the recent news of his demise.



I am a bit curious, who is the reader from the Netherlands? I am dedicating the post to you today, because I am just baffled by the fact that I have such foreign readers!

How Tuesday: How to Make Edible Valentines

I had to post about my project last week for Valentine's Day!
I got this idea from Snippet & Ink's tag. Granted, mine do NOT look as pretty, but it never seems to happen that way :)

1. Buy a good pan. I found my heart tin on
2. Buy a good cake mix. I chose Duncan Hines red velvet---and it was great for a box!
3. Buy writing icing, I chose red to make them look
more like conversation hearts.
4. Make a glaze icing. I found mine on I also got food coloring and made different colors in different bowls.
5. Cut the tops off the cakes. It's easier to ice when they're flat! I also waited a full day to ice them so I made sure they were extra cool.
6. Icing... This was the hardest part. The easiest way w
as when I dunked the cakes into the icing bowls.
7. Put the cakes into the fridge to make the icing harden a bit.
8. Write on the cakes with your writing icing! Now, if these weren't so tiny, I could have done this better...but I tried!!! :)
