the week in photos.

we have all [basically] made it through the first week of 2013. and guess what? I’m still optimistic about this being A GREAT STINKIN’ YEAR.

I’m ready get back on the job search horse. [because I said eff you for awhile]. I have bigger & better plans for my blog. I’m excited about growing {TwoCoins Etsy Shop}. and [J] & I moving into our own place, so I can decorate, dammit! [danger: this blog will make a hefty shift toward DIY when that happens. I will send out a forewarning. promise!]

in other words: I better not waste any time ..I have a lot to accomplish. so without further ado ..

it’s friday!

also known around these parts as: the week in photos.

[J] & I have opened our very own etsy store!!!

TwoCoins_EtsySquare

[emphasis on [J]. he’s the creator. I’m the assistant-ish].

it all started with a custom wedding gift we created for our friends. I am more appreciative of personal/meaningful gift giving. so we put our brains together & [J] concocted a gorgeous, custom made print. I died when I saw the finished product. it even received a few happy tears from the bride. mission accomplished.
