I have become a big fan of and all things handmade in the last several months. I guess because I wish I could be so crafty but I don't have the time right now with work and school. So, I'm happy to support those who do have the creativity and the time to make it happen.

That said, I have a few favorite sellers on etsy:


So fun!

And because I want to win (who doesn't like winning?), I'm going to promote a springtime giveaway on Factorygirlashli's blog. It's a giveaway with another new fave seller on Etsy, Twisteddelight (

Check them all out!

Did we get carried away?

Original Facebook status: Jackie is feeling really good this morning. What gives, Monday?

You woke up and inserted yourself into a high level, much sought after agents position before your second cup of coffee. What's not to feel good about?

So true. I had no idea what great things were in store for me today. Currently googling "goat stylists" to find the best in magic goat fashion.

They prefer sequins to rhinestones.

I'll keep that in mind but if rhinestones are the trend, then they're just gonna have to suck it up.

You really can't talk to the talent that way. They need to be coddled a bit. I suggest you brush up on your goat/people skills.

But I think we can both attest to the fact that anyone (or anything) who spends long stretches of time in Africa soon becomes dull to Western fashion sense. Am I right, or am I right? There are some topics these goats are going to have to trust me on.

My apologies to Dianne for deleting her comment from this convo....

Becoming Vegetarian

A little over three weeks ago, I started eating a vegetarian diet. It seems a little weird to think that I have not had meat of any kind in over three weeks. I haven't missed it. I've been having so much fun cooking veggie dishes from my new vegetarian cookbook and my Indian cookbook.

Today was Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies. I've been craving PB cookies for a week or so. I was going to use a regular old recipe that I had but alas, once I got around to making the cookies, no butter. I googled and found a tasty recipe at 101 Cookbooks. I recommend it.

I'm a Tropicana Juicy Rewards Insider!

Because I'm a Savvy Auntie ( I entered to become a Tropicana OJ Juicy Rewards Insider - and was selected!! One of 21 people.

I get 12 points toward the Juicy Rewards program (along with the ones that come along with the code underneath the cap of my Tropicana OJ in the fridge) to be redeeming for discounts off tons of crazy stuff. AND I get $50 to use towards trying out those things. Like a massage from Massage Envy. Um, yes please!

All I have to do is Twitter and blog about my experience with the program. No problem there.
