blog sugar & sugar money

Photobucket

i have a secret to tell you.

i am going to BLOG SUGAR (sorry caps hatas, they are needed right now) in september. in other words, i am leaving new york all by myself to go to southern california to hang out with awesome, goldy women, eat cupcakes and talk about blogging all weekend. HELLO, BEST WEEKEND EVER. again, with the caps. sidenote: this will be my second time leaving my boys for an overnight. call me a homebody, don't make. and you may insert the ugly cry into my life on september 23rd, which will promptly be followed by happy dances of freedom.

the fact that i am going to blog sugar may not be an actual secret because i did shout it out in a facebook status and put the i'm going to blog sugar button on my blog. but, i'm pretending it was a secret and this is my official blog announcement so whatev.

if you do not know all the details behind blog sugar you best go check it out. my super sweet, super funny, super pretty, super sleep-over-loving friend rachel is the brains and beauty behind it all, and this year will be better than eva. for reals, you need to go.

and here's another annoucnment, this one was really a secret until now.

Photobucket

i made a shop to help homegirl (that would be me) get from new york to california. plane tickets are expensive you know. so, i signed up for a big cartel shop. i used the free option, obviously, because i am so cheap resourceful, click on over and check out my pretties. as if you can't check them out right here in massive collages because the cheap option only offers one photo per product. yeah... about that.

whenever i have time to make pretty things to sell, to contribute to my blog sugar savings, i will. but, i cannot commit to anything serious. sugar money is the name of my shop, i hope you enjoy it. i am so creative aren't i? and if the name sugar money rubs you the wrong way, fret not, i am not a street lady at night. just selling some wreaths here, people.

you do need an easter wreath, don't you?
you are coming to blog sugar, aren't you?

happy monday! hope it's sweet like sugar.

  1. love your wreaths! good job on all of them. i sold my first wreath on etsy when i was out of town. i was over the moon. i hope you don't mind that i am sort of copying, because i too, am going to blog sugar and need to save some dough.
    and since i'd rather NOT work at payless (though i have an unhealthy obsession with shoes) i'm going to make wreaths..maybe headbands, too? or hoop art? yay for crafts!

  22. first of all, those wreaths are adorable! i half-made one but just can't seem to sit down to finish it!

    second, how/where/what did you use to make your header on your shop website? i remember you saying you don't have or use photoshop, but that is super cool/cute, and you seem to know a lot of easy and quick shortcuts to making things that look hard! :)

    thanks! hannah.

  25. LOVE the name of your shop. And if I werent trying to do the same thing(raise money for a ticket) Id be buying one of these fabulous wreaths!
    Have you figured out accomodations yet? Theres so much to work out...plane ticket, rental car?, accomodations. It has the potential to add up really quickly. So off to my sewing machine I go to make some bags:)
