I’ve got a lot of nervous energy this morning. It’s quite a big day for me. I am currently on a bus to the Big Apple to be in the “tech section” of the audience for The Martha Show. I’ll be live tweeting and blogging this afternoon, reporting all of the fun things that will be airing on the show. I’ve long-loved Martha, so it’s such a thrill to be picked to do this. I’ll let you know when the episode goes live, but if you want to follow along today, be sure to follow me on Twitter!
Additionally, my newest project Umba Box (edit: link fixed) launched this morning! Umba Box is a unique monthly subscription service that finds the best of the best in the handmade world and sends it to subscribers each month. As popular handmade sites continue to grow (not naming names, but rhymes with Betsy!), I’ve had to spend increasingly more and more time searching for products that wow-ed me. Umba Box does the scouring for you. All you have to do it subscribe for $26/month, and wait for your handmade goodies to arrive in your mailbox each month.
The Hubs and I were at Ikea last week picking up some organizational items. It feels like I’ve bought so many, but somehow I still feel disorganized. While wandering, I saw a few cute succulents that I wanted to add a little life to our living room. I got it home and was bored with the plain pot,s so I decided to spruce it up a bit. I had some recycled sari rope (the shop appears to be currently sold out) that was just screaming to be used in a DIY. So I busted out the hot glue gun and got to work. Here’s how it turned out:
That’s it for now! Happy Monday, loves!
