reading / grow your handmade business by kari chapin, the book that k got me as one of my christmas gifts. i had my first etsy sale this week (jan 1, actually!) and i’m feeling super inspired to continue improving my design skills and business sense in this new year.
loving / for my 20-something female readers, this list of 21 things to get you through your twenties. i love the idea of focusing on building a closet full of quality staple items versus buying just whatever’s on sale.
missing / my little sister. after over a week together at christmas, it was hard to say goodbye for now. crossing my fingers that she’ll be coming to college in nebraska in 2014!
a few fun links from around the web:
the coolest, most unique gift idea i’ve seen in awhile. this man wants to gift his girlfriend an hour-long conversation with another person who loves food + travel as much as she does. foodies apply here! (and it’s paid)
i might be a little late to the game on this one, but this onion article about mumford & sons is hysterical. too good.
