Things tend to happen

A fun little announcement, friends! I've started writing an Arts and Crafts column in the New York Examiner.com. If you'd like, you can click there and can see my articles about making a pretty package for those sad, sometimes forgotten January babies and how to create your very own party in a box! A cute, easy embroidery project is coming later this week.

One of the goals I came up with while doing Reverb last month was to find some kind of fun side-gig in 2011, and lo and behold, this came about the last week of 2010. I think it's true what they say: once you put it out there (even if the "out there" is only in your own head), things tend to happen. Sorry for getting all The Secret on you!

Anyways, since I know you are all just dying for more Fresh Basil...now you can get an additional crafty fix twice a week!

Happy Tuesday, ladies!

  2. What great news! While it's always uncomfortable to "put yourself out there" as you said, this new side job demonstrates what happens when you do. Congrats!
