    Craft Swap IX: Holiday Cards Recapitulation 

    The final card arrived a month ago! I apologize for posting this so late. Similar to last year, I felt pretty loved over the holiday season and was impressed with everyone’s mad card making skills. This year Chris and I hung a string with two separate sections to make sure all of the cards would fit. Without further ado, here are the 2013 cards in the order I received them (if I can remember correctly):

    Keep Portland Weird 

    Best Friends

    Instead of doing our usual trip to San Diego this year, Chris and I flew up the coast to visit some of our favorite people: Laura, Sean, and Findlay! The weather this trip was fantastic. It didn’t rain a single drop, blue skies and warm sun the entire trip – I got to wear shorts! The great weather allowed us to explore the city by foot and helped us not feel so bad for eating like pigs.

    The Health and Beauty Brigade 

    Hello dear readers. I’ve had a special request to share some DIY beauty tips, so I wanted to take that opportunity to share my journey of mind, hair, and skin.

    "Hello, Findlay! You always look so adorable. You must tell us WHO does your hair??"

      Your skin looks great! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while and this all looks cheaper than actual “beauty” products. What are the health benefits of drinking cider vinegar every day? I just bought a fresh bottle for my coleslaw recipe and, well, have a bunch of it.

        The raw apple cider vinegar remedy is the most folk medicine-y thing of all this stuff. Supposedly just a small amount a day is good for things like regulating blood pressure and blood sugar, keeps you feeling full longer, and the acid helps restore pH balance. The pH thing interested me because that’s related to skin and hair health. When your pH is at the right level, your skin is working at its best. I haven’t used this regularly enough to say whether or not it helped me. But I do actually like the taste… I like to make a drink of it using 16 oz of water, a tablespoon of honey and tablespoon of vinegar. Maybe a splash of soda water too ;)

      Whoa Laura! Your skin & hair look great! I’m definitely going to try all of these out. I’ve never really had a problem with ache (even in my highschool years), but recently it’s been flaring up like I’ve rubbed butter drenched movie popcorn all over my face and chest. I was attempting to correct the problem by washing my hair every other day, thinking that my hair was the issue – now you’ve given me the tools and I know what to do! Thanks bestie. xoxo

      Man Laura – you have mad knitting skills. I love how huge your dad’s scarf is!!! Overall I have to say my favorite is your herringbone cowl, a-mazing. Keep up the good work and… you know… it just so happens my birthday is in March… ; )

      Beautiful work Laura…are you getting an alpaca now? I really want one…I have felted and it is hard work, you need to use soap with olive oil in it to keep your hands from chapping.

    Pay it forward with friendship. 

    For this craft project, I put together a care package for my long-time BFF who is completing her law degree and graduating in May. Law school isn’t an easy road, so I sent along some treats to help her through finals week. A big jar full of homemade chocolate chip cookies and a box of local tea sachets should do the trick.

    When you’re far from friends who you still retain a deep friendship with, you don’t really need constant reminders of how special your friendship is, but it never hurts to sometimes show it. ;)

      With treats like those, I’m sure she will ace her tests!

      What a cute friendship bracelet! :) Are those your famous Laura chocolate chip?

    Findlay, one year later 

    One year ago today we brought home Findlay, our furry, pointy-eared “child.” I wrote then about the first few things he was good at and enjoyed doing. I will give you an update of some of the things Findlay likes and knows how to do now.

      Love! Findlay – how you matured. It’s true, you are the best snuggler. :3

      Hi Findlay! I can’t wait to meet you.
