Today’s post it brought to you by the letter ‘S’ …

Am I the only one that struggles with coming up with a post title? I sure hope not. It’s especially hard when it’s a ‘catch all’ post like today’s is. I try to be clever, but I’m guessing it comes across more as goofy than clever, but whatever.

I made these cookies on Thursday. I am in *love* with them … they are my new favorite cookie. Good thing it made a small{ish} batch and I could give some away before I

S is for Sparkly {Shellac} Nails

My bestie was in town for a very short visit this weekend and we had just enough time in our Friday afternoon plans to sneak in a manicure. I normally don’t do manicures as I see it as a waste of money. A pedicure, yes … because it lasts for weeks and weeks. A manicure, uhm, let me think … $20 so they can chip the next day? … no.

S is for Sparkle Saturday

{My sister, me, my bestie}

A bunch of my favorite girls got together to walk in the Women’s Fitness Celebration {which happens to be the largest all women run/walk event in the U.S.} on Saturday morning. It was a BEAUTIFUL day. My sister and I ran the race while the rest walked. I had a goal to run the 5K in under 30 minutes. Well, I’m giving the credit to my Team Sparkle skirt, because I clocked in at 28:48. My PR {Personal Record} for a 5K.

S is for Samples
I’m up to my ears in pattern pieces and fabric. Sewing, sewing, sewing for Robert Kaufman’s L.A. Textile booth. Things might be a bit quite around here the rest of the week as I’m under a tight deadline.

S is for Holiday Shopping
With under the holidays quickly approaching {seriously, did anyone else gasp when they realized Sunday marked 3 months until Christmas?!?} I’m going to be sharing my “Handmade Holiday” specials for 2011 later this week or early next week.

S is for Shop for Sharlie

I have to mention this again. Whether you’re interested in my ‘Feather Pillow Dog Bed‘ tutorial or not, please take a moment to stop by the shop and see if there is a way you can help out Sharlie. You can read two touching posts here and here. There is matching incentive right now … so your donation will go even further through tomorrow.
