Good{will outlet} Friday #43 ~ Inspired by Buffalo Jeans

The early bird gets the worm...unless rain has been falling every day for a solid week.  At that point, worms are scattered all over the sidewalk and the birds can sleep in.  However, that saying does ring true for Goodwill Outlet Center

Gift Wrap Wednesday #10 Cloud Paper

Soooooo much rain!
Today's gift wrap idea is inspired by the big, fluffy clouds (that also happen to be full of rain) in the sky above my home.  I love this simple handmade gift wrap for Spring (wouldn't a baby shower gift look precious wrapped up this way?)

April Showers

Things have been... interesting in Grand Rapids this week.  You could say we've had a little rain here - maybe a few more inches than in years past.

Gift Wrap Wednesday #9 Rainy Day Roses

The booming thunder and torrents of rain out there can mean only one thing: it is officially Spring.
Until the flash flooding dies down in my parking lot, let's just celebrate the change of seasons indoors for now.  As we wait patiently for those budding May flowers, let's make some of our own for cheerful packages!  For a quick rainy day project, put together a few cupcake wrapper roses to top girly gifts with.

Colorado Road Trip

Last month, Patrick and I went on an awesome road trip to Colorado for my sister-in-law's baby shower.  We spent a lot of time in the car (thanks to the massive winter storm that rolled through the Midwest just as we did), and saw all kinds of fascinating places and things.  I've been meaning to post the pictures for a while now, and I guess today is the day.
