"Sense"-ational Sundays...

Our senses tell a story. I've committed to recording my 5 senses for the past week - every week - as an exercise to explore my sensory world. I challenge you to do the same. If you choose to do so, just blog your 5 senses every Sunday & let me know - I'd love to read along!

I SEE: *NEW* Twilight Buttons!

We've gotten SO MANY requests for new Twilight buttons to our shop I created 20 new images this weekend. We've also goal-ed ourselves to do 3 sets per book in the series {a small, medium & mega set}. Right now we have the Twilight set, Bella's Choice and The Dazzling Collection. We will have Jacob & wolf pins as soon as I put together the New Moon sets...

I HEAR: Mad World & Way to Normal...

Mad World by Gary Jules {the version from my beloved Donnie Darko} has been stuck in my head {as well as Marie Digby's version of Umbrella - ever since Andy switched it to "Angela-ela-ela-hey-hey-hey-hey" and sang it on the office a couple of weeks ago}. Also Meg {rock star} loaned me her new cd, Way to Normal. I've been particularly rocking out to The Frown Song, You Don't Know Me, Hiroshima & Effington. Also - I've been playing Rockin' the Suburbs...well, a lot.

I TASTE: Bulgogi

I went to lunch Saturday with my aunt & uncle and Meg-o and they introduced me to this too-good-to-be-real Korean restaurant that's so ridiculously close to my house I could walk. Unbelievably good, good, good! I can't wait to go back again sometime soon with Matt...


Those are the empty envelopes from this week...we made over 350 buttons in the evenings and over the course of the week BROKE and FIXED our button maker {thank heavens!}.

I SMELL: Red Wine

I spent a some soul-nourishing hours with Ashley & Kate this week. Before long, Ashley poured us all a glass of red {or maybe 2, or maybe that's just because I "did her the favor" of drinking her glass when she got up to chase after a little one - lol. No seriously, I'm not a lush, it's just with the careening kiddos, it almost spilled a dozen times - so my best solution on the spur of the moment was to eliminate the potential for disaster by eliminating the wine itself.}. I've only recently started appreciating reds {thanks to Jen & Pam steering me towards some good ones to start with}. So far, from what I've tried, my favorite has been a Pinot Noir called Wild Horse. It's kind of weird smelling & drinking reds after being anti-red for so long. I prefer cherry and peppery overtones - so if any of you have any red recommendations for me, I'd love to hear them!
