5 Secrets to More Color at Home

Happy Weekend!


I don’t think anyone could be happier it’s the weekend this week than me. You see, I hopped right off a plane on Tuesday back in LA and right into a hospital bed. Oh yes, it hasn’t been the typical crafty week for me, folks. Without getting into all the crazy details, I’ve always been borderline anemic and it seems that anemia decided to show it’s nasty face in full force this week, so I’ve been getting treatment and getting better for the past few days. When you’re self employed and stuck in a hospital bed for a week it’s not ideal. When I stop, my business stops. So while I focus on my health, I apologize if posts are a little sporadic next week. Luckily the hospital is well equipped with wi-fi and while I can’t get crafty from here, I can type! I need something to do, there isn’t enough confetti in here for my liking!! And no donuts on the menu either. So here’s some weekend links for ya. I hope you all have a healthy and relaxing weekend, and I hope to be coming to you all from a healthier, Halloween-ready state on Monday!

  • Brittni

    Jeff is the sweetest for bringing that piñata to you in the hospital. I hope you get to go home today and have a nice, restful weekend.

  • Alison

    girl! feel better! I’m SO sorry! Ok but will you please watch some Grey’s Anatomy for me? If you don’t have NetFlix…who doesn’t have Netflix? email me and you can use mine! Then make a sparkly venn diagram of all the differences and similarities between your visit to the hospital and an episode of Grey’s? Just a thought? Lots of love and healing thoughts your way!

  • Jamie

    Oh no! I hope you’re feeling better Kelly! Still, look at you all bow-tiful in the hospital. Why am I not surprised? Jeff’s a sweetheart for bringing you a piñata (even if it wasn’t confetti dipped) Sending you healthy thoughts! xo

  • Joy

    Oh my gosh, Kelly! I hope you’re feeling better soon. It looks like the hospital tape is coordinating with your bow and piñata – how did they know? 🙂 Take care of yourself, gorgeous girl. xoxo

  • Jeanine

    A well wish from Canada to you!
    I too live with a “compromised immune system” daily. Our summer was plagued with serious illness, unfortunate circumstances, & more illness I am just beginning to take steps forward from! You are not alone! Your fellows are rooting for you and sending you bunches of get well supports along the way 😉 Rest Up & whack a piniata when frustated with beng stuck in bed! I know I wish I wouldve had one at times in hospital this summer myself!! ;D
    Look forward to your swift recovery!

  • Claireabellemakes

    Feel better soon lovely!

    I love how even though you are in hospital, you still wear a bow in your hair and have a piniata by your side 🙂

  • Kendra

    Feel better soon, Kelly!
