Where have all the Lisa's gone?

The NY Times asked, "Where have all the Lisa's gone?" about 6 years ago.

Who knows? But you can get this cute new disc, that I'll be wearing tomorrow, in my Etsy shop.

Pure sweetness.

I seriously can't STAND the sweetness!

Family mash-up

How can I make good use of all of my fonts and tell a story?

The family mash-up necklace!

In this pendant, you can see where Edwin and I met, where he proposed, when we were married, the names of our kids, mine and Edwin's monogram, and the name of our little family - all in a 1" diameter.

To-do lists

I always joke that I need to tape things to my forehead to avoid forgetting them (ok, staple). I guess Lila had the same idea, when she peeled my to-do lists off the back of my phone, and stuck them to her forehead!

She proceeded to go down the list - first she payed the bills.

Then, she got confused at "pilocarpine experiment," so she ate the phone.

Hey, that wasn't on my list, silly Lila!

After a mildly frustrating day (to put it mildly), what a treat to open Etsy and see my "Composer Series" collar stays on the front page!

Nothing like 40 new hearts to brighten a day! Thanks, Etsy.

We ventured to the Renaissance Faire this weekend. As expected, Ronnie loved all the costumes and even belly danced with this gypsy.

Lila enjoyed the fare.

And Ben was taken by the knights, ravens, jousting and sword fighting.

Everything was so royal, I made this hand stamped pmc crest pendant.

Be sure to check out Edwin's royal cleverness here.

So fancy

I am having so much fun with my new fancy script font.

It has such an old world, baroque feel to it!

San Francisco Fog

So this is what they mean when they say San Francisco can get a bit foggy?

Edwin took this from the Moffit ICU, where he spends way too much time saving lives and such.

Preparing for Halloween

Somebody has been working on her best ghost impression.

You can imagine how many walls she has been bumping into, but I don't think she'd be too happy if I cut eye holes in her favorite blankie!

It's here!

Super fancy super script font.

Doesn't it look like it was written with a feather quill pen?

Spooky spiders

With Halloween quickly approaching, it's a good time to talk about spiders! Every morning, we have an intricate array of webs around our staircase from the previous night.

You can imagine how excited our little Spider Man was to find this life size web at the park.

Here is Under Her Charm's limited edition Ben inspired Halloween spider necklace.

Get it in my Etsy shop!

Ronnie brought her dress up bin outside for play, and Lila wanted to dress up too!

More PMC misAdventures

This poor little guy ended up with an eyebrow piercing.

That's only slightly better than the toe piercing this guy ended up with.

Maybe I should think about investing in a pmc class. . .
