Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm 20-something crafter, active explorer,  and memory keeper, currently living in New York City.

It is freeeeezing here, and my mind is constantly wondering "Why didn't I move to California again?". Just kidding.......But seriously. The Snow Miser has worn his welcome, and the sad part is I don't think it's even close to being over.

A couple fun and interesting things from this week:

  • I found this shop, The Tiny Collection, on Etsy when I was looking for candles, and I loved it. It's so simple, so cute, and they have so many options! I ordered the Pine Cones candle, and it smells amazing.
  • You may have heard about this earlier in the week as it swept the retail sphere, but C.Wonder is closing! My all-time favorite sweater is from C.Wonder, and their cloths are just so great. Although, a little overpriced - hence the store closings. It's crazy to me they didn't even try to do an overhaul strategy tactic to see how they could be more profitable. Instead, they just completely shut down the brand. It's a really interesting case study on starting and maintaining a business, especially a brick and mortar clothing store.
  • If you don't know by now that my favorite blogger is Elise Joy, then you probably don't know me that well. But hey! Better late than never to learn a little something, right? Well, Elise has a weekly podcast, Elise Gets Crafty, which has been running for almost a year. It's really great to listen to if you're into running a small business, goals, creative thinking and action, etc. It sounds just like a fun, informative phone call between two people - Elise and her guest of the week. Podcasts are the new booming digital medium, in part thanks to the wildly successful Serialpodcast, so it will be fun to see how this medium evolves throughout 2015.

In other exciting Friday Finds, I found my flight to Paris in February! We are officially booking flights for work today. While I will be there for work, I will get a full day, night, and then half a day to roam Paris by myself. I haven't been since 2008, and honestly, I don't remember much of those 3 days. I love Kelly Purkey's guides for Paris, but I'd love any tips and recos for what to see, eat, and watch in Paris, from you!

Have a great weekend!
