Mixed Media

May 6th

arrived same day

Yesterday I received both of these in the mail and couldn’t help but laugh at the irony. Something tells me I’m not going to burn 320 calories at lunch by enjoying the Bon Appetit cover article.

Who burns 320 calories at lunch? Not this Phoenician. I can tell you that it is in the 90s here this week and we’re sweaty driving to lunch, much less going for a walk or workout this time of year.

On the flip side, the postman also brought me two rocking new Amy Butler patterns. Giddyup. I can’t wait to dive into these!

Why yes, this will be my new summer tote. Can’t wait!

P.S. If you are a Phoenician and interested in meeting this crafty gal, she is going to be at the grand opening of the new Blissful Living Studio in downtown Mesa on Saturday.
{I hope to make it post SheRox, but timing and energy levels are questionable post-tri.}

  4. Wow, I’m out of the loop somehow and didn’t realize there are new Amy Butler patterns out. I need to hop over to her site and see what she’s up to lately. Thanks for sharing this, Kelli.

    In terms of the food magazines, my head sees me as svelte woman, my stomach says, “Feed me…now!”.

  5. P.S.

    I quick hopped over to Etsy and purchased both patterns ($12.95 each) from MyShabbyChicCottage.

    Thanks again, Kelli.

  6. Wow, those patterns are great. I must have been under a rock because I had no ideas new Amy patterns were available.

    As long as we use portion control, everything in moderation (even dessert) my friend 🙂

  7. Oh my! A laptop cover? What a cute idea! And, that tote is super cool (the self-confessed bag-a-holic that I am!).

  8. What a cute bag! I can’t wait to see yours 😉
