I’m heading off to College Station this weekend to visit my alma mater for the first time since graduation. I’m quite excited. What are your plans for the weekend? Anything fun for Halloween?

Next week: much more from me, its been quiet on the front this week.

I’d like to leave you with this, just because:

As an aspiring entrepreneur and dreamer of having my own handmade-inspired business some day, I’ve really been trying to tap into local talent and events. I wanted to share two upcoming events, one sponsored by Etsy Dallas, that look like great shopping opportunities!

First up: Jingle Bash

Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash

Jingle Bash is sponsored by Etsy Dallas and will be on November 21st from 1-7pm. The website advertises: free admission, full bar, music, great food, indie shopping. Um, I’m there!! Rumor has it that they give killer grab bags out to the first 50 customers so I’m thinking about getting there early to snatch up one of those!

Second: Dallas Flea

The Dallas FleaThe website doesn’t give much information as to the details of the event, but The Dallas Flea will be held on December 5. Local screen printer Dowdy Studio will be in attendance, according to their Etsy site. I’ll definitely be attending this event, as well!

With the holidays coming up, these events are sure to provide ample gift options for all of your beloved ones!

Ages ago I saw these first two dresses on a website and they’ve stuck with me since. Aren’t they fabulous. I just think they’re wonderful, whimsical, out-of-the-box dresses for a bride that would want something different.

How to have a happy birthday

This is the cover art for the children’s book, How to Have a Happy Birthday, A Party Cut-Out Book from 1960. Isn’t it fantastic? Seeing as it is the day of my birth it makes me think, what is the recipe for a great birthday? Mine? Friends, family, Olive, and lots and lots of food that’s bad for me.

What’s your favorite thing to do on your birthday?
