special focus: creativity

my new how magazine came in the mail today. i loved the color and the focus of the magazine. focusing on getting creative & doing things with your hands. there were some great little how to's on screen printing, block printing and stenciling that have me tempted to pick up a few different kinds of paints and go to town.

since my water was shut off today while they did some work on the line, i figured it was a good day to explore some local boutique stores a shop lady told me about the other day. and lucky me, i found hoity toity. they have the coolest store. super cool shirts, jewlery and gifts! and you can shop their cute stuff online, too.

i mean, seriously are these squishy baby heels the cutest thing ever, or what?! i just want sombody to have a baby girl so i can get them as a gift! i just love finding cool locally owned stores to explore. this one is on my new list of must-frequent-often shops!
