Screen Printing Party

Or class...class is probably a more appropriate word, even though it was so much fun!

We took the class at Earth Cadets, which, yes, I've mentioned before.  I just love and respect the company & products so much.  As soon as I heard she was starting classes, Karen & I signed up.  And we were not disappointed!

Krissy, the owner of Earth Cadets, was so sweet, knowledgeable and creative!  And just overall helpful.  She had a bunch of screens and ink (?) colors set out for us to choose from and it was free reign from there.

We were there for two and a half hours and time flew by!

I mostly focused on a onesie (for my friend who had a baby girl early Feb.) and, strangely enough, muslin, which we had for practicing.  I'm planning on hanging it up, but I haven't quite decided how yet.

When I finished my onesie, I ended up with a line, that wasn't necessarily supposed to be there.  I was like, "meh, no big deal."  Krissy took one look and suggested using a paint brush to make the line another eucalyptus tree.  Sure why not!  And now it looks like it's supposed to be there!  I love it :)
the eucalyptus tree on the left wasn't supposed to be there...but you'd never know ;)

Later, Krissy posted some of the group's pieces on instagram.  Check out the eL stop bag that says, "This is Grand."  One of the other girls in the class made that one and we were all in love.  I showed my co-worker this photo today and she immediately pointed it out and said she would buy it.

P.S.  Attend your own screen printing party!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…


I said when I turned 30 in January I was going to start using moisturizer.  Now, 6 months later, I can say I've kind of achieved the goal, but not really...

I have a moisturizer from several years ago, which I received as a Christmas gift.  I used it off and on over the years, mostly off.  I've probably used it more this year than ever before, granted the bar was very low.

I don't like it though.  I don't like the smell or really how it feels either.

Then I heard True Botanicals released a lower-priced Basics collection designed for younger skin, technically for people in their 20s, but whatever.  I decided to try their hydrating oil (the smallest one) to see if I am able to be consistent with use.

First impression: I'm still figuring out how much to use, but I love the smell.
