Babies & Books (aka Kate Middleton and Marisa become magazine BFFs)

So this happened... You know, me and Kate sharing the same gossip-y pages of Life & Style this week!!  I call it the "Babies & Books" issue!!

Life & Style - New Dress A Day - Pregnant Kate Middleton

I was giddy with excitement to see the book featured in this issue - sandwiched between Kate Hudson's fave Edie Parker purses (which are oh, so dreamy) and Katrina Bowden's fave Dentyne Gum (well, "Sweet Breath" is a pretty fab headline...) with the Duchess herself on the cover.

Aside from the love from the weekly mag, I also got started on this holiday puppy...

It's a plaid and velvet party going on!!

New Dress A Day - Vintage Dress - Holiday Plaid!

I began working on this piece before (...and after) taking off for a lovely night in San Diego, crafting, meeting readers, and talking thrift stores, at the lovely Kettle Coffee & Tea in Escondido!  A full post featuring all the fun - a tutorial on the vintage fabric ornament we made and a ridiculously delish recipe for one of the treats we devoured - will be featured soon.

New remake comes tomorrow!
