a few things...

First, a little housekeeping... I had heard some rumors that Google Friend Connect is going away, but just kept putting off thinking about it. I finally paid some attention and come March 1st, GFC will cease to exist. If you followed my blog by clicking "join this site" on the sidebar to the right, I'll no longer have you as my follower. :( Some of you might follow me in a reader. That's wonderful! But if you are a Blogger person who follows blogs through GFC, there is another way.

I'm asking you to go to the top left of my blog and click "follow," it's right there:

That is the built-in Blogger version GFC. They call it followers. Why the followers and the widget GFC version aren't the same, I'll never know.

EDITED TO ADD: I added the "followers" widget to my blog. It looks exactly the same as GFC. Scroll down and look at the right-hand sidebar to follow me. :) 

Or, if you'd prefer, you can like my facebook page. I'd love to have you! I am planning on keeping that more updated and hope to have a little giveaway pretty soon!

Second, I had planned on writing a couple pre-valentines posts for you with a couple tutorials and another awesome cookie recipe, but my plans have changed. Unfortunately, my Grandmother is very sick and I am going to be with her and the rest of my family for a few days. {Don't worry - I'll still post the cookie recipe soon!}

But I'll leave you with what I did last year...

I made these fun fabric bags to deliver my valentines treats. They were fairly easy to make and went over really well! I know lots of people who are re-purposing them to hold and organize items in their bags and purses. I actually use one to hold my small contact solution bottle and lens case.

I'm sorry if it gets a little quiet around here - I'll try to keep you entertained while I'm away. ;)

And I'd appreciate it if you'd send some positive thoughts our way.

xoxo, christa


  1. Okay weird... I don't have that bar on my screen. Grr. Blogger is making me so angry lately....

    1. Krysten, hover your mouse where the "bar" should be and it pops up. I couldn't see it either but put my mouse there and it popped up.

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your grandma! and I like your FB page :)

  3. Whoa! I didn't know about the "followers" widget being separate from GFC! That's good to know! :) I just decided to put my facebook like box on my blog since I update it more than the blog!
