  1. DIY Up-Cycled Sweater Pals


    November 15, 2012 by Emily

    Right now I’m purging my closet of all the clothes that will never fit me, aren’t flattering or will never come back in style… and I will be the first to admit that usually I hold onto clothes well past their prime, so my purge pile is huge. While most of this will be going into charity, there are some items I just can’t bear to part with because even though they may be worn out or I look awful in them, they still hold a lot of sentimental value.

It’s his go to comfort food, and since it’s cold season in Baltimore he’s been craving the spicy aromatic dishes.

    Every time we want Indian we order some take away, but alas, Indian take away is full of dairy which is a big no-no for my stomach and after I looked at my most recent bank statement I said “no more!”  While most cuisines I’ve managed to get the swing of, indian has always been a little scary to me, but cravings took over so I grabbed my spice box and started figuring out our house favorite; Chicken Tikka Masala, to fit our budget and our diet.

    November 5, 2012 by Emily

    I fell in love with screen printing when I was in college, I loved being able to alter plain clothes with my own designs…but once I left my well equipped art college my options for screen printing got pretty small… however, my desire to personalize my things has not gone away. So I got crafty and improvised!
