Ok so I am a bit of a sap. I do like romantic comedies. This one I watch whenever it plays on the Hallmark channel. It's called Personally Yours or at least that's what they call it when they play it. The only photo I found is titled Wilderness Love. I have a feeling that was the first name they came up with until it was thankfully voted out. It stars Valerie Bertinelli and Jeffrey Nordling. It's about a divorced couple who have three children living in Alaska. This is an amicable divorce although the two are so clearly smitten with each other, one wonders why they divorced in the first place. Anyway the wife moves on and starts dating so the kids decide they should help dad to move on as well by putting his story in an Alaskan dating magazine - without his knowledge of course. The scenes following are so funny it is worth the watch! The dad finds someone to start dating but that ultimately makes his ex worried. Ok, so it's a bit of a formula but it really is pretty funny. For what it's worth, my husband actually started watching this with me and got a kick out of it. Hope you will too.

I have been busy working on new pieces and of course my infatuation with Jane (Austen that is) continues. Here are my Jane Austen note cards that chronicle the banter between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. They are a set of six 4.25 x5.5 cards printed on thick smooth paper stock.
Each quote is set in the silhouette of each character. What do you guys think?

This is a new category for me. All my friends know that I am a movie/television junkie. Heck I just love a good story whether its a novel or a movie or a television series, I am there. So I figured why not share in this passion since I delve in it quite a bit. And yes I am a bit late as this post should have been up yesterday but nevertheless here it is. First up, my guilty pleasure on Monday nights is Hart of Dixie on the CW. I absolutely love this show! It stars Rachel Bilson and a few other beautiful and talented people. She plays a doctor from New York who after a number of circumstances ends up in small southern town. There is no shock value just good 'ole storytelling. The town has it's quirky characters and little mysteries and lots of flirting! Did I say the guys are, well, a bit easy on the eyes? Also the clothes are divine. You can see more on Hart of Dixie's wardrobe here on this posting on StyleWithBenefits.com by Becs. Hope you check it out!

My quest in the new year is to organize my home and my business. I am still working on my home but I did come across a great website to help with my business. It's called handmadeology.com. It is owned by fellow Etsy owner Timothy Adam (above). He's been very successful running his business and has paid it forward by sharing his tips with other entrepreneurs on his site. Let's see, we are in our second week of January and I have literally been scouring over information everyday so far. He also has many amazing talents contributing to the site so you will come across a plethora (always wanted to use this word) of helpful information. I have been asking myself why of why oh why didn't I come across this site five years ago when I first started on Etsy? But that's ok, it only means I was meant to find it right now. I hope you'll find it too. www.handmadeology.com

This is an ode to my first love - my dad Gordon! He was a cool cat back in the day. That's him on the far right. The year was 1964 and he was hanging out with his buddies on top of Blue Mountain Peak in Jamaica. Cool, right? He's no longer with us but his spirit is definitely here.
