worked on a DIY jewelry display case shared by a very crafty blogger. I'll post more on this soon!
Made and ate endless holiday treats...
and discovered the magic of making gingerbread houses/villages. If you have kids (or kid-spirited adults) in your household, this might be one the best $5.99's I've spent.
My parents served as blind judges and inspected our houses for structural integrity and decor. First prize went to brother Ed (an engineer, so it wasn't really fair), Nick came in at a close second, and lil' brother Schuyler and I tied for sloppy thirds. Ed is leaving soon for a semester in Stockholm, Sweden - any readers who have visited or lived there, please share any "must do's" or "must sees" !
PS - I did stop by the Ann Taylor Factory store today and left empty-handed. There was tweed overload and I tweeted some cute skirts that were around $40 after discounts. Everything was 40% off and they do ship to homes (see my Ann Taylor shopping tips). Prices were not great for the quality, plus AT and AT Factory sizing runs generously, so someone my size would need to get alterations.
