Back home again!

Hello, dear readers, wanted to let you all know that I'm back home again after 15 days of traveling in France.  Whew!
I'm back in Portland and am looking forward to getting over my jetlag and back to my normal life things--blogging, here I come!  I hope to do some fun new tutorials soon and share more involved projects with you, and of course I need to get back to the sewing machine!
I also am happy to reopen my Etsy shop, and will hopefully add some new things to it soon, too!
Here I am at the Trocadero in Paris, just one of the 1,000+ photos I have and need to go through before making a fun slideshow for my family...
It was fun, but it's good to be home!


  1. Oh Paris! I am soo jelouse!! I hope the trip was wonderful!

  2. Welcome home! I love Paris and am so jealous ;-)

  3. Welcome home! I'm looking foreward to your comments and impressions on the fashion in Paris, and to see if you've changed your mind about that at all.... ;)

  4. Welcome back!! So jealous, bet it was tons of fun! :)

  5. Hoping to make to paris sometime soon! welcome back!

  6. i spent a month in paris when i was 17 (uh, like 17 years ago!)

    the trocadero was our hangout...all the rollerskater boys would do shows and stunts there and we would just spend the days fun!

  7. I'm headed over to France in less than two weeks---it will be my first visit. I'd love to hear more about your trip! I'm worried about jet lag, what to wear, what kind of shoes to bring, how to order from a menu when I don't speak French, etc. But excited! I even refashioned a tshirt (comfy) to take along as per your inspiration.

  8. Paris is one of my favorite cities! I've been there several times and hope to go back again. There is always something new to discover in Paris
