Lindsay Lohan hosts SNL

You guys.

These SNL skits from Lindsay Lohan’s recent special had me cracking up.


I’m aware that homegirl got some Rose McGowan-style plastic surgery done. But relax. She’s back on track, trying to figure some shit out … maybe we could just ease up on her lip-job.

Whatya think?

friday die edition #7

I may or may not have freaked out on Alyssa recently when she told me the weekend after this weekend is Thanksgiving. Oops. I did. The seasons, you guys, I swear.

For now, enjoy the latest things that have made me want to die from jealousy.

Apparently, the weeks are only made up of Fridays now… Here’s a couple of posts I wrote elsewhere this week if you want to catch up:

geek out: kind of a mess

by lizzie & isaiah on September 9, 2011 · 7 comments

In the process of trying to find a new name for ourselves and rebrand this little shindig, my friend Alyssa (Kind of a Mess) mentioned she had a project on her hands as well. She wanted to redesign her blog and a couple of other things – the only thing we ended up doing was help her redesign the blog.

So she came over. Well, first we went out for gorgonzola burgers. You remember our gorgonzola burgers. We were on a time crunch of one day – a few hours – most of which we spent gabbing about everything from family to how jealous I am of a few envy-inducing gigs Alyssa has been able to work out.

We worked on this little ditty with her. She so sweetly talked about the process of working together here.

Have I told you I’m not good with compliments? Isaiah once complimented me when he lived in Vegas on the phone – when we were still friends – and I balled myself up in the front seat of the car and kicked a spider-crack into my windshield. No lie. My parents suspiciously said, “I know you said a rock hit the glass, honey, but this looks like it’s bubbling out from the inside…”

Here I am again, with a 90-degree crick in my neck from embarrassment, trying to type. A reverse gush-fest is coming soon, because you should know ALL about Alyssa and how she freakin’ fascinates and delights me. But not now. Because now I’m kind of an awkward mess. Get it?


geek out: jewel’s shoes

by lizzie & isaiah on August 17, 2011 · 6 comments

I found Mama’s Sauce a while back. They’re a rad letterpress and print shop started by three Italians in Orlando. You should know them, because, you know, they’re awesome.

They recently submitted these classic, charming invitations they made for recent clients. They’re awesome, yes? Yes. They also designed Save the Dates for the same couple and I love that they’re in a completely different style than the invitations:  authentically old seeming (not “vintage”) letterpress postcards.

But, for now, back to the invitations. The chick has these yellow shoes, right? She loves them, right? You would too. Mama’s Sauce designed these around her sunny shoes.

Right? Their blog is full of inspiration and recent projects they’ve completed and honestly, it just looks like a fun place to work. As if that weren’t enough, they took the time to explain paper quite a bit – which, if you’ve tried shopping for paper anytime, is a delightful rarity.

“Keep the roof on” lithograph Remember when I mentioned a while back that I embarrassed myself pretty bad when I started blogging and did the whole, “Nice post! Check out my blog!” comment on the first post I read even kind of related to weddings? Yeah. Well, we did a similar thing when we started [...]

geek out: etsy finds

June 22, 2011

So far, I’ve only made two purchases on Etsy, but a few things lingering in my favorites are tempting me quite a bit to put away a quarter of a check every month to devote to Etsy purchases only. I could claim I’m really into supporting handmade art! I want to save the universe! Damn [...]

geek out: jessalin beutler

June 15, 2011

I came across Jessalin Beutler’s shop on Etsy a couple of months ago when I was in an, “EVERYTHING MUST BE GEOMETRICAL” phase. It hasn’t worn off yet with a lot of things and every time I look at Jessalin’s shop, I get a flutter of geometry love in my heart. Jessalin makes hand-painted and [...]

geek out: blue eye brown eye

June 8, 2011

I like the sound of the word apprenticeship, but I suppose you can call it a second job. I started working for/learning from Lauren of the Fort Worth letterpress and stationery shop Blue Eye Brown Eye. Meet Lauren: Blue Eye Brown Eye came to my rescue when I was looking for letterpress classes in Fort [...]

geek out: no one will ever believe you

Bill Murray will deny all these stories. A blog about the completely fictional account of the audacity and balls of Bill Murray as he interacts with the general public. My favorite, Bill Murray and the Perfect Sandwich, and the only evidence you should need to check out the site for yourself: I had finally found [...]

geek out: wtf from the past

May 25, 2011

The past is fascinating. My mom took me to New York for my 19th birthday. We used to take regular vacations together and it wound up being one of our last alone. Ellis Island was my favorite part of the trip, where we saw my great-grandfather’s signature on the ship’s manifesto. He was only 8 [...]
