Hi everyone,

Sorry about the lack of recent posts. Jocelyn and I were both really busy over the holidays with our families and hit burnout stage by New Years. It was nice to take a little break and spend time with our friends and families but we will be back this week posting. I have some great new products to tell you about and I am working on a new contest that I will try to have up early this week.

We hope you all had a great holiday! Let us know if Santa brought you any great new products.

Erin & Jocelyn.

Had to share…


Erin was talking earlier about the snow, and she’s so right!  I love the snow, but when I have shopping to do – it’s a nuisance more than anything!  I took these pictures this morning when I woke up.  We’ve gotten a couple more inches since then!

Another thing that’s really annoying is I have 2 presents being shipped to me that I bought online.  Last time I checked the packages were stuck in Utah, so it’s likely they won’t make it in time.  So annoying!  Portland hasn’t seen this much snow sine 1968, so we’re definitely not used to it.  I’m not sure how anyone does it every year!

Merry Christmas!


New Contest!

Congratulations to our contest winner Marianne! Stay tuned for more contested coming soon.
