maybe the best day ever?

last night i worked until 9 am (geez, i know. but i have a lot to do these days!). i woke up a few hours later and mr. larson brought me a latte. we finished up some shipping (making sure our packages will all arrive by Christmas), had sushi, spent a considerable amount of time online (unusual for me, as of late… but, i have much catching up to do this week)…. actually i think i was at Big Momma's (coffee) for 5 or 6 hours working online. got one more latte to go for mr. larson, came back to his studio and he played a song for me. then i made tea and popcorn and we watched "being john malkovich". then i went back to work for the evening. i guess it was the most perfect day ever. i have a few pics to share. first, our ridiculous/amazing holiday family portrait… 


and these:



eeek! it's 5 am and i have an appointment with my woodworker (oh yes…. building loveliness for my new shop!) in the morning. 

Ok.. one more, check out Rachel's new holiday house tour at CafeMom. Her house is full of eye candy and lots of pink for Christmas! I love it. Oh, and she displayed this poster that I designed (actually, she's the only one who has one. I made them for my new store windows!)…..


nightnight. XO. elsie

  • Aaaw, your holiday portrait is insanely adorable.

    And oh my gosh; your new hair is love.

    There really is no other way to put it.

  • Love the photos! Sounds like you are having a busy but happy holiday season – how wonderful! Can’t wait to add Jeremy’s album to my itunes library!!

  • Aren’t extensions fun? At first I thought it was maybe the ring on your ring finger and I was thinking, ooh, Christmas came early for someone.

    LOVE the unicorn. I might have to make myself one.

  • thanks to you working so hard we already have our package from your etsy shop….my daughter will be so excited!


  • Coolness abounds at your house!

    Been doing some holiday crafting of my own – some gift tags and such – check em out on my blog – plus a fun giveaway! Tis the season for giving and all!

  • Love the new pix! You are so beautiful! Being John Malkovich is my Number One Favourite Movie Ever! I could watch it every day if I had to. xXx

  • wow how cute is that Christmas photo! You and Mr Larson make the perfect couple! I am off to buy his new album now ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am ditto on the hair!!! Have been thinking for a while how gorgeous it looks! Any tips? lol

  • Love the photos, they are super. I got my Larson Cd in today’s mail and am going to pop it in the CD player in a few. So excited he’s on itunes now too. Going to check out Rachel’s tour and I love that poster.

    I can’t wait for the opening of the online store. If I were closer I’d shop in person but love the power of the internet. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Have a great day.

  • I loooooove the extensions! Your hair looks fabulous!

    Thanks for always being an inspiration <3

    Happy holidays to you and Mr. Larson (got the CD!)



  • If I could buy you a full 24 hours for Christmas, I would.

    Maybe I’d get you two of them. One for work and one for play.

    You’re the bombest of them all. And the most kind.

    Love you,

    Less Dude, More Scrapbooking.


  • thank you SOOO much everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

    gosh. you are sweet.

    oh. and for the last comment from Terri,

    i’ve said this before and i will say it again a million times if i have to…

    this is a personal blog. i write about whatever i feel like writing about. i hope that people will enjoy it and come back often, but i don’t write it to please one certain group of people and if i did have to choose just one group of readers to please it would probably be my family.

    you have a right to your own opinion, but please don’t forget what kind of blog this is.

    P E R S O N A L.


  • Your Christmas family portrait is BEYOND adorable.

    Your blog is a right treat, thanx!


    {{Merry Christmas to you and yours}}

  • OMG! you guys are, like , the cutest couple ever!

    Love the hair, love the antlers, LOVE the puppy!

    Happy Holidays, Elsie!
