Edible Crafts

For some reason when I was little I ALWAYS asked my mom to buy Hamburger Helper. To my knowledge, I've never actually had Hamburger Helper, but I was apparently really convinced by the commercials. So when I found the recipe for Tempeh Helper in Appetite for Reduction I had to make it!

Tempeh, noodles, peas, and some vegan cheesy sauce and I was eating for 4 days straight. No lie. I ate this shit all week and loved it.

New Items and Thriftventures

If you check into my shop with any regularity, you may have noticed I've been posted more and more Vintage Finds lately. A few of these items have already sold and I'm excited to share more and more with Etsy browsers. Here's a bit of a shop update!

Check out my Etsy shop to see more.

I've missed thrifting, collecting vintage, and the hunt of a good find. Many of the items that I've sold on Etsy are pieces that I've had for many years even through elementary school. There used to be a street in my old neighborhood named Antique Alley where my friends and I would bother the thrift shop attendants as 10 year olds tend to bother everybody. Right down the street from our apartment in Allston is a lovely little gem called Urban Renewals where I wet my vintage whistle.

My best find of the day where a few gently loved books for only 99 cents! They will be perfect for the children's art programs I do on Wednesday afternoons at the Clayroom.

And here's a little sneak peak at a few things (mostly all vintage) that I picked up and look forward to sharing with you soon!

Movie Monday Answer

Last week's Movie Monday answer was Clueless! We finally had another winner who has chosen the carrot necklace as their prize. Here's a few images based  on my clues to refresh your memory:

This week, I was putting together a few images and it felt very inappropriate considering recent world events. What happened over a week ago in Japan is so horrible I could only look at enough footage to know that it happened and I had to end it there. I can't watch the news, I can't read articles about it, I can't do anything. It's just too horrible. I decided the right thing to do this week was feature a selection of wonderful Etsy sellers who are donating portions or their profits to Relief to Japan. Some of these items are a mere $10! Only $10 for Japan and you still get something in return.
