Saturday Inspiration~OUCH!

On Tuesday I finally got braces. I've waited long enough ... They'll be coming off right before I turn (GASP!) 40. But I can't believe they hurt this much. Here it is four days later and I still can't eat. Maybe it gets better?
Any advice?

Anyway, here are some sites that have made me smile (with my new braces!) this week:

~ Nostalgia Organics~

This week Elea Lutz (founder of Nostalgia Organics)
is our Fabulous Friday Artist on WWC.

She has a line of all natural soaps and aromatherapy balms.

Aren't they cute?

I can't wait to try each and every one!

Her soap sacks even come packaged in a limited edition fabric sack with a label that unfolds into a sewing pattern!
Here's an example of the pincushion pattern:

I've got quite a list ... I love handmade soap! And wouldn't it be cute to put one in an Easter basket? Especially for me 'cause I can't eat candy ... HINT.. HINT :)


I LOVE Peeps (or Peepers, as Emma calls them!), So when I saw this peeps garland project on

I knew I had to post about it.
Dana has all of the instructions on how to make one on her blog
Plus, she's having a giveaway where you can win one of your very own!

Head over and comment for your chance to win! Good luck!


Is this not the most GORGEOUS necklace? Doesn't it just scream "BUY ME PAIGE". "You just got BRACES, You NEED a pick-me up"! Can't you just hear it? I sure can! I found it at

Susan of Paperhill has the most lovely treasures! And not only that, her things are very reasonably priced!
Her blog, is one of my favorites. Very inspirational ... You'll want to add it to your blog roll for sure. Oh, and guess what? She's going to be a Fabulous Friday Featured Artist!
What a cool job I have....
Meeting all of these wonderful people ...

And speaking of wonderful people,

Now I'm off to drink the rest of my dinner ...
Have a great weekend everyone!
