It's Friday, I'm In Love...

Total fluff post today because it's the end of the week, no one wants to really work, it's a long holiday weekend, I'm feeling lazy, so let's look at some eye candy I've been admiring via Pinterest (follow me @ pulpsushi) Source: cathkidston.co.uk Even though I don't sew, I would find a neat purpose for this basket.

Meet Rachael from LOTS, she shares her experience of being a transplant from the UK living the US (Michigan). It's interesting to see how our culture is observed by a person from another country. Check her out, she's a sweetie! LOTS is a mish mash lifestyle blog - one capturing the life of an English girl who moved to the US for love. I've always called it a mish mash because I hope it reflects my varied personality and tastes.... Read more


Book Review: Handmade Fabric Flowers

Today I have a guest post from Moe at Five Sixteenths, she's been here before. :) I've been getting a little backlogged with the book reviews so she's kindly helping me out. I"ll be sharing some news about Moe next week, until then take it away Moe! Hey there, it's Moe again from Five Sixteenths & I want to share with you a lovely book on handmade flowers! When Marilyn popped this book in the mail to me, I expected... Read more


Added a couple of things to the shop today. I got Buddhas, flowers and bugs! =) This is my second scarab necklace, I love those little things. Slowly trying to stock the shop for the holiday season. I like to have a lot on hand. I mentioned last week that I was taking off this week. Actually, just taking off from my full-time job. Unfortunately I'm not going anywhere, another staycation for me. Today I am home alone and just... Read more


It's not often I come across a blog where I feel like I can really relate to the person. I enjoy the blogs I follow but I'm usually older that most of them and I'm not a parent so I can't share in the mom-related stuff. When I discovered Grits & Moxie I thought "Woohoo! I can be friends with her!!!" - and now we are. :) She has great taste in eyewear too. Meet Jennifer! Hi! I'm Jennifer...just a... Read more


A Day Of Anniversaries!

Last year, I wrote a post about August 25th and all the craziness that goes along with this date. Relationship anniversary, heart-surgery anniversary, and a death anniversary. Pretty crazy huh? My boyfriend and I have been happily un-married for eleven years now. I don't have any secrets to being in a successful relationship, it's actually not easy at all. It is a daily uphill battle, that's the reality to making a relationship work. It's not ever going to be perfect,... Read more


Today is an extra special Friday because I'll be off from my day job all of next week. I'll still be around doing Pulp Sushi business but I don't have to worry about my crazy commute and being at work. Hooray for some R&R! Mike is taking a few days off too, can't wait! He tweeted me this picture the other day, I melted. Yesterday I was simply floored when the folks at Coastal.com posted this quick video on Twitter... Read more


Today I'm bringing you two book reviews on a similiar subject: Felting! I learned about Needle Felting a couple of years ago and it's pretty fun. I don't do it too often. I've needle felt beads and charms for jewelry pieces. It's more than just tabbing felt with a needle. There are many different technqiues to use when working with felt. The Complete Photo Guide to Felting by Ruth Lane covers that. The Complete Photo Guide is an overall instructional... Read more


I started reading Crystal's blog Billie Jean not too long ago and I absolutely enjoy it. A great balance of lifestyle, fashion, and nostalgia. Crystal describes her blog as being about life as a wife, mother & entrepreneur. Sharing moments of her life with her daughter - Tory, husband -Joey & tidbits of their home. "I love vintage dresses, my antique family heirlooms & shoes. I do also love making jewelry & I have a shop on Etsy, Billie Jean... Read more


The skull braclets weren't the only things added to the Etsy shop this past weekend. I snuck in a couple of other items that may be your thing if you're not into the spooky stuff. Click on images for details. You can never go wrong with flowers and lockets. :) Also wanted to post another reminder that there's still room for advertising in September. My ads are through Passionfruit and you can purchase a small or large space any time... Read more
