I want to give a belated happy birthday shout out to my fairy grunge sister Jeanetta.
Monday was her birthday but we aren't celebrating till Friday so I figure I am good if I mention it today....(also I am going to throw in pictures of our latest Shoppe update while I ramble...)

Happy Birthday Girlie! You still look good - for a 33 year old!

(this is her modeling one of my Camp STORIA crafts....she is probably going to kill me for this!)

I am very blessed to have Jeanetta as a dear friend and kindred spirit. It is so fun to have someone who I can get crafty and thrifty with. Someone who can read my mind when I can't find the words, and who is the most loyal person, despite my tendencies to withdraw when I am in my deep-thinking or way-too-stressed-out modes. When I am ready to come back and rejoin the rest of humanity again, she is always there, waiting with a cup of coffee and some chocolate.

Having the shoppe together (going on 2 years in the fall, I can't believe it...) and being able to work on it together while living in the same state this past year has been a blast, (even when I haven't been.) I think that our friendship is like fine wine - we just get better with age.

It always amazes me how we can come up with the same or similar ideas without even talking. How much our children act alike (both good and bad, ha!) and how in the summer with all their freckles they even look related. I never could have imagined that our friendship would last this long or evolve the way it has, but I am so glad it has.


  1. Love all your goodies!!
    Happy Birthday to your sister!
    Great pictures!
    Have a great night,

  2. Lovely pics, nothing like having your kindred spirit so close:) Rachael

  3. Cute stuff!
    I was going to stop in your store while we were in Little Rock, but we totally ran out of time! Vacations are never long enough, are they? Maybe next time :)

  4. you couldn't have uploaded that pic of my butt in the small size could you.
    Thanks girlie! it's been a crazy ride but we still manage to hang on somehow. here's to the admissions staff at OBU.

  5. Nice butt Jeaneatta.
    That's so nice to have a gal pal!

  6. Wow! How did I miss that you also had a brick and morter store? I was oohing and ahhing over all of the store pics. Happy Birthday to your friend!

  7. Ya'll really are two peas in a pod! The shoppe looks great... have fun tomorrow.

  8. cute butt, Jeanetta!! :)

  9. Love this post. BTW, I'll take one of everything to go!! Especially the Patriotic goodies. I don't have one Red, White & Blue item in my house.

    Once you get stuck on pastels, it's so hard to incorporate the other colors from these great holidays.

    You go girl.... Keep up the good work.


  10. I love these pics Jerusalem. She might get you but they are cute pics! I love how you have the little embellishments on tags for sale!

  11. Will make it to the your store next time we are in town. The shop looks great.

  12. Love your Blog, sweetie, even when I don't have time to read it all ... like listening to a great song for the tune while only half paying attention to the lyrics, it's still fun!


  13. I went antiquing yesterday at the three-floor antique mall in Crown Point, IN, right next door to where Johnny Depp filmed some scenes for the new Dillinger movie last winter. Your photos reminded me of it, although your shoppe is much nicer (and more pink) than the mall ....


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
