Another shot!

Well I'm back to try it again. New year, new opportunity. I'm terrible at this blogging thing. And by that, I mean that I'm terrible at actually blogging, because I blog every day in my head. But y'all don't have access to that now, do you? And its too bad, because my blog "posts" in my head are quite entertaining! 

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!  

Since my mom and I have been on a sewing frenzy the past week, we have made tons of little things out of scrap fabrics we had laying around. She made me these potholders for Valentine's 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.....
