Home is Where Your Mom Is, via Moglea
Well, really, isn’t every day Mother’s Day?
This week I will be doing all kinds of posts relating to MOMS!
Day 1: Cards.
Why would I start the week with cards, you ask? Well, for those of you a little further away (or if your mom enjoys mail), so you have time to choose and send a card before next Sunday!
Also, for the tattoo-lovin’ mommy:
Get your card in the mail soon, and join me again when I chat about Mother’s Day printables and crafts!
As all fantasy nerds are, I am so thrilled that Game of Thrones is back. I was so excited that forgot to share these house sigils I created via Join the Realm last week. I couldn’t think of really anything profound or cool, but hey, I still had to do it – I could probably make a dozen more!
Roughly translated, it means: “I shall find a way, or make a way.”
And Bill and Ted, because obviously.
“As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.”
The message is not so much that the worms will inherit the Earth, but that all things play a role in nature, even the worm. -Gary Larson
I need to make these flexi-straw worms very, very soon.
It’s time to set fire to 2012! 13 is one of my favorite numbers, so here’s hopin’ 2013 is full of adventure, mirth, fizzy drinks and tons of smiles. I may seem a bit over-the-top, but when it comes to sparkle, I say subtle is the key. What do I mean?
1. Create an easy confetti launcher with a balloon and a tiny paper cup. 2. A gold-rimmed coupe glass is a sure-fire way to get some sparkle to your lips. 3. An invite or well-wish card via Paperless Post (or for me – a new desktop wallpaper!) 4. Some subtly glitter dusted brogues. 5. A photobooth corner covered in sequins and a smile will be all the sparkle your party needs!
Bonne Année, Amis!

The “Esky” Covers:
For those not familiar with “Esky,” he is Esquire’s little mustachioed mascot.
I will put a page break here, because the next photos are semi-NSFW.
