TrickORTreat! Halloween Sale!

Dearest friends,

 

It’s that time of year again…  When it’s normal to walk around with fake blood on your face and plastic vampire teeth in your mouth.  When fishnet stocking companies rake in the millions.  When fake tombstones take the place of plastic flamingos in your neighbor’s yard.

That’s right.  It’s the perfect time to start watching “A Nightmare before Christmas.” It’s…Halloween.

 

I love how on this holiday, we can rejoice together in our weirdness, and let go … Read the rest

Mother’s Day Sale!

 To Mom:

Where do I begin?  

My mother has played such a huge role in my life, it’s impossible to find the words to express my gratitude.  

She’s shown me how to be a supportive friend, a caring sister, a loving daughter, and a joyful human being.

Her energy always amazes me– when I feel like crumpling onto the couch, she powers through to get. it. done.  

And what would life be like without the sense of humor she passed Read the rest
