I heart NY.

I was finally able to fulfill one of my life long dreams of visiting New York City this past month and I did it with the ZINK hAppy team to talk crafting, printers and bui-ness. Crafting aside, I have had an infatuation with New York City from the time I was a little girl.  The minute I stepped off the plane I was star-struck.  It was like meeting a celebrity for the first time…I did far too much big-eyed, OH-MY-GOSH, flapping-hands.  As much as I tried to play it cool and act like I was a native New Yorker it was so obvious I was just an annoying tourist.  Seriously, I couldn’t take enough obnoxious selfies in front of everyday, New York-y things like taxi cabs, steaming sewers and landmark 5th Ave stores that I couldn’t afford to shop in.  Half way through the trip I was starting to get on my own nerves about how pathetic I was probably acting but I just couldn’t help it.  Get a load of this ah-mazing city!

Charging station options.

This is becoming a problem…


I realize this picture looks like a plea for an electronics intervention.  I feel a real need to explain myself but it’s really not what you think.  Two of those I-pod clunkers have been deemed for use on long vacation car rides only and the other phone is being phased out since I got my new Windows phone.  The other two phones…are…um…well…  all right, ALL RIGHT, bring on the intervention!

In the meantime, I’m searching for a way to tame the cords.

Do you have a charging station that you care to share? I’m shopping.

I’d love it if you wouldn’t mind taking a moment and liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram! Mahalo!

"I Touch"-ed It.

I finally found it. Jake got mad that I gave up looking so he gave me a little help. It was hidden behind an engagement picture taken of us in the year 1999. Pretty sweet…thanks Love!

I just can’t figure out how the heck to work the thing.
