Gifted Magazine

Creature Comforts blog is one of my daily reads.  I was eagerly awaiting her online Gifted Magazine gift guide when she announced it a couple of months ago and it has finally arrived! I was so excited that I flipped through the entire issue, making mental notes of items to buy/do further research on.  There is literally something for everyone.  Click here to browse.

Hopscotch Model

My coworker Casidy surprised me and the other Covet gals with some beautiful pictures of her daughter, Miss S, who is featured in the current line of adorable clothing from Hopscotch Designs.  It's her first time modeling and we all think she is a natural!

Versace for H&M

Versace currently has a collection at H&M which consists of some great dresses.  I'm not typically a fan of Versace's over-the-top, color-packed designs, but I do like these dresses.

Holiday Guide - beautiful styling

With blogging what it is today and the world detaching themselves from paper, it allows us to see beautiful eZines and guides from those we may have never come across.  Check out Emily Henderson's (winner of HGTV's Design Star) gorgeous Holiday Guide on Issuu.  Wonderful ideas and beautiful photos. It's porn for the crafter!

Cresent Rolls

The holidays are coming!  It's my most favorite time of year.  The other day I was catching up on my DVR and caught a cresent roll commercial.  It's truly amazing what one can do with cresent rolls.  Here are a few of my faves.
