Pretty San Francisco sunset! We are the insane type of people who make a one night trip up to San Francisco the week that we are moving across country. Annnnd we aren’t fully packed yet. Ha! I didn’t get a chance to snap many photos yet but hopefully tomorrow morning before we head back to LA. However my eyes captured lots of pretty sights on the drive in over the Bay Bridge. Ughh I’m so going to miss California!! #sanfrancisco #sunset #california #imentertainingmyselfwhilemyhusbandisata49ersgamewithafriend #yep #wearecrazy

Wahhhh. Saying goodbye to Los Angeles is getting so hard you guys. Another tough farewell today. Griffith Park/Trails Cafe. Got a soy latte, “egg in a basket” (SO good!), and a lavender vanilla shortbread cookie. My favorites. I love you Trails! #sayinggoodbyetoplaces #losangeles #griffithpark #trailscafe #natureinthecity #nature #urbanpark #igersLA  (at The Trails Cafe)

Found this earlier while packing. An extra wedding invitation for our wedding. I handmade all of them using clear contact paper, whole leaves + real bits of leaves and nature, a tiny photo of us plus cut outs of printed text on recycled paper bags. Then I embroidered the edging. Thankfully it was a small wedding but I think I still made like 50 of them. It was a fun but lengthy process. Ah, memories :) #fallwedding #2008 #hasitreallybeen4years #packing #moving #indenial #weddinginvitation #diy #handmade #nature #fall

My cheap method of creating business cards. Repeat image- 3 across and 8 down (I use the free software Photoscape) and have it printed in black and white on 11 by 17 card stock at Staples for .40/page. Then just cut them out. That’s over 200 business cards for less than $5. Can’t beat that! #cheap #handmadetips #handmade #business #paper #diy
