Friday Faves- What I Want Edition

Today I'll be sharing 'Just A Little' rambling assortment of my wants, wishes, and desires lately.

#1 Tombow Dual Brush Pen: I've been trying my hand at lettering things lately. Mostly for fun, although I decided to add a few prints to my Etsy shop to see if there was any outside interest in them.  Right now I have this Faber-Castell Pitt Brush pen, and it's ok, but I don't feel like it is super fluid and can't get the downstrokes as thick as I would like. I've been reading blogs and reviews and the Tombow seems to be a pretty well liked choice. I've yet to pick one up, mostly due to the fact that none of my local craft supply stores sell this brand. I need to bite the bullet and just order one online already!

Here's a peek at some of my current practice:


Switching gears to a fashion desire:

Spot the common item in these cute outfits


Did you figure it out? 

#2 Converse - I know these are nothing new, and possibly I'm just being influenced by the current trendiness of them, but I'm pretty sure I NEED some in my life. Soon. 

As I get older I am finding the need to be pickier about the shoes I wear. I need support, I need function. But I still need cute! (What gal doesn't?)

I tend to wear pretty comfortable, yet polished looking outfits on the daily.
 I would wear any and all of the above outfits any day of the week.
I love to be comfy,
 but I just don't feel my best when I'm wearing yoga pants and a frumpy t-shirt all day. 
Therefore, regular sneakers are in my closet for  workouts and yardwork only. 
I wear flats or sandals all. the.time. but I've been finding a need to wear something casual on my feet without wearing actual tennis shoes....

Enter my desire for some converse kicks. 
I'm thinking white? But my oh my how I love grey, too.

(BTW, love the blogs of those last two women)

Totally Random- but everytime we read this Pete the Cat book I think of my desire for white converse and how they might not stay so white. 

We love Pete the Cat around here, and apparently he has some lessons for a mom that wants white converse to learn, too ;)

#3 Ampersand Pillow - I think this would look nice on our bed, 
 currently we have all white bedding that needs some accessories.
 Roy might think otherwise when he has to move another pillow to get into bed at night!

I'm on the fence if this is a good one to DIY or just go ahead and buy.

Burlap/Linen Fabric + Fabric Paint + Freezer Paper + Pillow Form or Batting + TIME

or Just $$$ and wait for UPS ;)

I'll keep ya posted.

Not sure who will win in a down and dirty test of changing diapers, washing dishes,
 mopping floors and general mom duties. 

But I want to look polished doing all those chores without constant chipping!

I love the look of polished fingernails, but I'll admit I have given up the fight since having kids.
Actually, I gave up the fight pre-kids when I was a Veterinary Tech.

Miracle workers or all hype? 
I'm not sure which to try first. 

#5- A Beach Vacation- Need I say more? 
I'm going to go ahead and say this one is a total wish that isn't going to happen anytime soon,
 but a gal can dream!

Warm sand, blue water, a cold margarita in hand. 

I'll drift off to sleep tonight with that mental picture!

What do you think of my wish list? 
I'm sure we could all use a little of #5 during these last weeks of school!
