Ok, I am doing a huge project for my families and since none of them read my blog I am safe to spill the beans HA!

For the past several years I have been working on my ancestry which created a full-blown obsession with Geneology. So, for Christmas I am making the families geneology posters. I thought about doing a family tree but after discovering over 12 generations I decided go with geneology chart (versus the family tree which generally only show up to 3 generations).

I am on just about every day looking up census, military and newspaper records and hoping to come across some pictures especially after seeing these lovely inspirational pics:
Which I read about here.
Pictures from here.
Using I can easily upload all of the ancestors straight from
Here are a few other options as well:

Felted Pillow

Felted Pillow
I just found this adorable tutorial for making a felted pillow on Etsy's How-To

Favorite Things - Etsy!

Favorite Things - Etsy!
I love people's hand made stuff. Here are some of my recent favorite sellers and/or items that I thought I would share with you all from Etsy :)
  • Camias Shop - lots of really pretty elvish-looking jewelry

  • DNTX shop - Cutest bicycle handle bar bags :D which are also convertible to a hand bag.

  • Adorakable1 - First, I love the name! She has these cute novel covers... I have an issue with really bad vampire novels and teen vampire novels. I am not ashamed... but I hate it when people try to read the cover on my books riding the bus.
  • I just bought these crochet cuffs from whiletheyplay and a slew of patterns from her.
  • Seraart - Oodles of vintage reconstruction items with a Steampunk look sometimes <3
  • Gorjuss - I have these prints from her
