Fan Friday #83

I love how my new blog design compliments the colors of the things I am interested in.  I am just so in love with this design.  I feel like this post would have looked so out of place in the old design....I've actually felt that way for a lot of my posts.  I know I keep saying I but really this year is about defining myself online.  So far so good!  Here's what I'm loving this week:

It's a little late, but these wrapping papers from Toffee Magazine are awesome!
Purchase issues in the shop or even just these lovely papers!

All the knitted/crocheted things in this post.  I want to cover everything in yarn!

This image on the front page of Leif.  I am in love with simple black & white right now.  That's the main reason why the STUDIO site is all black & white.  So simple!

Link Love
++Alycia's board Bitch Please, This is Impossible or Just Plain Stupid is my favorite Pinterest board of all time. ++

++ I love the layout & design of the blog In Honor of Design.  It's bright & inspiring but not overwhelming. ++

++ Lesley of Pretty Little Pink Things shared her favorite books of 2012.  I love reading but have a hard time settling on a book.  The last series I read was The Hunger Games series & I loved it but I can't find adult-ish books that I like.  Maybe 2013 will change that. ++

++ Katie of Muddy Pup Pottery traveld to NYC for NYE.  I am so jealous! ++

++ If you've got a little Christmas money left over, Just Lovely Things has awesome hair accessories & shipping (to US & Canada) is only $5! ++

++ This Monthly Calendar Round Up over on Dream A Little Bigger has me swooning.  I love calendars...heck I just like planning.  All of the ones mentioned in the post rock! ++

Hope your weekend goes well! I'm not sure what we're doing but I know that today is devoted to finishing some collections/suites in the stationery shop.  I have a bad habit of having too many ideas & not enough execution.  Then...maybe...finally.....I'll code it right to look better!  Happy Friday!



  1. I love all of these. I decorating my (almost!) home right now and it's mostly black and white with random pops of color. I couldn't be more happy with how clean it looks.


  2. Adult-ish book I'm reading right now: Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin. Definitely an adult book, but about Alice in Wonderland.

    As a fellow planning/calendar lover, I'm nuts about that calendar round-up. Thanks for pointing it out.

  3. these are all beautiful! Just popped over from the blog hop!

  4. i really like your blog look! haven't been by in a while... it's subtle but so lovely!

    off to check out some of these links - happy weekend! :)
