Lovely monsters, Happy 2012 to you! We hope that everyone enjoyed a peaceful holiday season and are looking forward to a year of new adventures and memories.

With resolutions and forward thinking for the New Year in mind, after much thought, we have decided that we will be moving on from Green Eyed Monster in the coming month. As of February 1st (exactly two years from when we began writing here), we will no longer blog in this space. We have so enjoyed sharing with you but have reached stages in our lives where blogging in this capacity is no longer possible or makes sense for us sisters. HOWEVER! Ash has a personal blog over at Blog a la Cart where she shares a variety of musings and images of her life and inspiration – and she will be fusing her DIYs, tutorials, and design inspiration from here, over there! This way her interests will no longer be divided and she can devote appropriate time and energies to one niche of the Interwebs that is just hers. We do hope that you’ll continue to follow her there. Over the month, we’ll be transferring all of the Green Eyed Monster projects and tutorials to Blog a la Cart – and Ash will continue to share fresh ideas and tutorials in that space. Also, be sure to update your social media followings by tracking Ash on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram (username: IGalaCart), Pinterest and via RSS. Green Eyed Monster’s FB and Twitter will be defunct by February.

Thank you for all your support and love, monsters. We hope to hear from you as we embark on this new stage.

THE WEEPIES {tunesday}

All That I Want by The Weepies is one of my favorite songs to listen to at Christmastime. There are subtle jingle bells in the background and they talk about boats – how could I not love it?! If you don’t know The Weepies, another favorite of mine is Gotta Have You. You can purchase more songs and full albums here.

“Out in the harbor, the ships come in, it’s Christmastime.”


CULTS {tunesday}

This one will get stuck in your head. I definitely find myself humming or singing the chorus.

You can purchase “Go Outside” here.


It may be all the egg nog talking, but I’m officially announcing that I will be tackling a DIY project a day up until Christmas.

I’m drunk on holiday spirit!

It’s a DIY DECEMBER! Like an advent calendar of crafty goodness. I’m starting with today’s post, even though we have yet to hit the final month of the year, as there’s a chance I’ll miss a day or two in the coming weeks. Regardless, my goal is to cook up 25 days worth of handmade goodness for all you monsters. Some posts may not be tutorials, but updates on various handmade holiday gifts I’ve got brewing. Either way, you’ll be able to find all the project here.

WISH ME LUCK. Lord knows I’ll need it!
