Shamrock Potato Printing

Shamrock Potato Printing


Poor St. Patrick's Day. While the other holidays are having crafty fun with egg dying, jack-o-lantern carving and cookie decorating, St. Pat's signature activities involve drinking and pinching. Searching for something a little more creative, I checked my favorite sites and the wider web. The results were extremely lacking in inedible Irish fun; a certain craft goddess's mega-site lists exactly 11 St. Patrick's Day crafts, and two of them are food. So after considering the many holiday icons (pin the pot of gold on the rainbow, anyone?), I turned to the potato. [...]

Heart (and Arteries) Valentine


Blood and guts are SO not my thing. In fact, my friend in med school just calls blood the "b word" when talking to me about her current rotation in surgery.

Invitation Pockets

4 Jun



Back when Greg and I were planning our wedding (and crazy), we decided to save the extra $2 per invitation and make 175 pockets from scrapbook paper... ourselves. Pre-made sets didn't come in the color we wanted and we're all for cutting corners (and corners and more corners). [...]

My future sister-in-law just marked the end of her second year in optometry school with the university's white coat ceremony (yay, Michela!). [...]
