New Sponsor: DarlyBird

I am happy to welcome Darlybird as a sponsor. This website has lots of goodies I want but of course I’m drawn to the party section where I want to buy milkglass cake plates and party daisies.

Sale at Arch

My favorite art/gift store is having a massive sale this weekend. Everything in the store (except for Gocco supplies) is 25% off. Arch is a place I recommend for even tourists to stop if they have time. It’s that special. Paul and I stopped by last night to pick up some supplies and I’m planning one more stop there this weekend before the sale ends.

Straw Source

You can get paper stripey straws that come in four colors for $3 from a company called Kikkerland right here.


A sweet little parasol company. {It is surprisingly hard to find cute/cheap parasols.} The pricing is in Canadian dollars so it comes out cheaper.


Paper Mart has some really cheap grosgrain ribbon, I mean REALLY cheap. {I’ve professed my love for Paper Mart ribbon here before.} I just stocked up for some of my upcoming projects.
