Noteworthy // 1.17.2014

I'm not sure what happened to this week. I worked on a few projects, handled a few duties for school,  and suddenly it's Friday again. It's one of those weeks where I've been productive, and yet, I have nothing to show for it. So you'll have to trust me when I say that there will be some new projects up on the blog next week.

One of the projects that I'm working on is for an exciting new craft product that will be launching at the end of the month. I'm not going to give away too much (boo! I know…) but I'm pretty sure it'll catch your fancy. Watch out for the post next week.

I've also put together the boys' Valentine's Day cards. Like last year's versions, they're candy-free and fun. I'm still tweaking things here and there, but I'll be sharing them next week as well. 

In the meantime, here are a few things that caught my eye this week...

This "how to watercolor series" by Elise at Grow Creative inspires me to create. When things quiet down, I want to go through her tutorial and learn some new techniques. If you haven't discovered Grow Creative yet, go pay a visit. Her blog is inspiring and packed with eye-candy.

We've mowed through all of the holiday goodies and, after three weeks of being "good", my sweet tooth is calling out for something. This clementine quick bread just looks and sounds divine.

I feel like we completely skipped winter here in Southern Cal. However, I'm not bragging. Although temps have been unseasonably warm, we're also in the 3rd year of a serious drought. We live in a fire-prone area, so these hot, dry winds always fill me with dread.

That said, we're probably one of the few areas that can start wearing the latest Spring fashions that are now popping up in stores. Here are a few pieces that caught my attention.
