My goal is to keep this blog up now through the semester. I think I've got the hang of law school for the most part, and can now afford myself the luxury of doing other things that are not school related. Specifically: baking and crafting, the things I love! (I also love to shop, but my West Texas town is lacking in that department, and well, so is my bank account.)
Over the break I have started (but not yet completed, of course) many crafts! From placemats, to coasters, to Valentine's day garland, the wheels have been spinning! I cannot wait to share them with you!
But first, I simply MUST show you these Kate Spade towels I got last week! I'm pretty much obsessed with Kate Spade. She was my first "designer" purse when I was in 7th grade, and my 16th birthday cake was a Kate Spade purse cake. To stumble upon these towels totally made my day!

I cannot wait to use them in February! I might even find a way to use them as center pieces on my table. And yes, that is another new obsession of mine: table scapes! If only I did not have a roommate that preferred paper plates or school themed tableware over beautifully draped tables with more than a spoon, fork and plate. I long for the day I have a dining room that I can leave set for "unexpected" company complete with table runner, placemats, chargers, dinner plates, salad plates, wine glasses, water glasses and multiple forks and spoons. Someday.....
