Happy Weekend


our thanksgiving for two

I hope all of you American readers had a very full Thanksgiving! Seth and I had our own little Thanksgiving for two, well technically it was 1 1/2 since Seth has been recovering from the pesky Flu, but it still called for pretty table settings nonetheless. Also, yesterday I learned it’s always best to make your own turkey while living in Texas, unless you’re cool with the possibility of picking up your Turkey only to realize that it’s practically BBQ style. #texasliving, sigh… happy weekend!

Craft Night


craft night with sugar and cloth

Thank you so, so much to everyone that came out for the craft night at Langford Market! It was a total blast (plus there were mini cupcakes, so how could it not be?)! I absolutely loved getting to meet regular S+C readers, it made my whole month, I can’t wait to do it again. For those of you not so close to Houston, how about I swap you a craft night teaching for a plane ticket and cute place to stay(seriously)? Deal. Until then, maybe I should start doing video DIY’s so you can join the fun, what do you think?
