Basic Grey ♥

Ok, so everyone who knows me knows that one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon is shopping for scrapbook goodies at Scrapbook Star. And if, for whatever reason, I can't shop in person I like to get comfy in front of my computer screen and shop online. And if my budget is really not looking so good and spending money is simply not an option, I browse the internet for sneak peeks of soon-to-be released new products.

Yesterday, I stumbled across the new releases by Basic Grey. And let me just say that I am in love. Madly, passionately, deeply, truly in love.

The Ambrosia line is my favorite by far ... butterflies, whimsical damask patterns, bright and bold bohemian colors. PERFECT for autumn pages!! The Eva line comes in second with its pretty pinks and feminine swirls. The Granola line comes in third for me. There are 5 new lines in total ... count 'em people, FIVE ... and I can't wait to see them in real life.

If you haven't checked them out yet, you can visit the Basic Grey site

Summertime ....

... and the livin' is easy.

These are my awesome red shoes from Steve Madden ... aren't they awesome?! So bright and lovely, they just make me smile. Unfortunately, they're *really* uncomfy and they give me blisters so I probably won't be wearing them much. But I just love looking at them in my closet !!

How has everyone been? I can't believe my last post was on June 13th. I've been a very bad blogger, I know. I've just been crazy busy enjoying my summer vacation and I haven't really had anything interesting to share. I have been working on some fun pages, though, and I'll post those up later this week. I also ordered a TON of Amy Butler fabric and I'm determined to sew a purse by summer's end. (Stayed tuned for updates on my sewing adventures ... last time I tried to sew anything, my mother accused me of trying to break her machine!)

Here are some other random things that have happened since we last chatted:
1) I've become a vegetarian.
2) I love etsy more than ever. Seriously.
3) My blog has been transformed, thanks to Francesca - aka web designer extraordinare.
4) I discovered the BEST restaurant in downtown Montreal ... a hidden gem called il Cartile.
5) I'm trying to become a Flickr expert, and failing miserably. Any tips on how to use that awesome site would be much appreciated.
On that note, I'm off to enjoy tofu hot dogs. *yummo*
