I love this series, but this is the first time that I ever wanted the end products (both of them)! Okay, maybe I also wanted the swants. Oh, and the turkey cakes. Oh hell, the stegosaurus hair, too.


The Stolen Paint Swatch Christmas Tree was pretty inspiring for me. I'm comforted now that the useless Pantone swatch books in my house have a possible festive life beyond taking up valuable shelf space and propping up wobbly tables.

...HAM wins, though. Hams down.@y


True story: I was in a shitty mood and moping about my boring evening when I had a feeling that maybe, just maybe, there would be a Just the Tips today that would make me feel better. Here it is! I even brewed myself some coffee to go with the ganache that had bigger plans but I'm just eating out of the pan to enjoy while watching.
Thanks Katy & Katie!!!


Just the tips is my favorite thing on the internet. Thank you for bringing indescribable joy to my Tuesday. I feel that the HAM sign is something that might actually exist for sale somewhere. I also feel that I would buy it.


The descriptions of why Home Depot is uncomfortable made me laugh so hard. "It's not cause we don't know what wood is!"
