I’m over the moon with these personalized journals and notebooks from Minted. I had a very hard time picking just one to feature on here, there are over 200 amazing designs. At $16, even if you personalize it, this is an amazing gift idea for just about everyone.
I’ve been reading up on Dayton Fashion Week (DFW) lately, and I was bowled over when I found out that one of their charitable partners is Hospice of Dayton! I am so impressed that this event will be benefiting such an amazing local charity.
I would love to join in the fun [...]
At work, I use Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. multiple times a day, sometimes for hours at a time. If there’s one thing I wish I could do sometimes it’s slide letters this way and that because of the deplorable kerning you get from these applications sometimes. Here’s a game that allows you to do just [...]

I’ve had my eye on the jewelry designed by thealteredchain on etsy and decided on The Little Gold Nugget Necklace for [...]
Now that I own a house, I have something like 9 rooms to decorate and furnish (see the Apartment Flood of 2011 for more information). This has proven to be a daunting task to say the least. It’s particularly hard for someone like me who hates making [...]
