I’ve seriously neglected the internet lately. I hardly update anything anymore, before the shop moved locations I had nothing better to do but be online…Lately that’s not the case at all, I’ve been in hands-on mode with store projects and personal craft projects, leaving very little time for online therapy. So I have a new [old] goal of blogging more [yah, yah, yah...]. We’ve been doing a lot of cute stuff at Butter Toast lately, and I’ve been a very bad girl about not blogging about anything. Please forgive.
I would personally like to invite you to enjoy my dear friend Ashley Eaton’s blog, Merry May Handmade. She is the newest member of our Butter Toast team after she opened her own crafts-and-more shop, Merry May Handmade, within Butter Toast. Ashley is a much better blogger than myself or Jasmine, so check her blog for updates too! I’m hoping to get some guest blogs from her in the near future, so stay tuned
I didn’t bring any of my many craft projects to the shop today, or else I’d probably be working on those versus blogging (oops.) So of course, I’m day dreaming about all the cute things I want to make in the future….Here’s a small taste of the million things I constantly have my mind on.
Click the images for sources.
This would be mighty cute along side of all my newly pink-obsessed home decor and wardrobe. I’ve felt quite girlie lately.
My crochet work is not up to par yet, but I do hope to create something this beautiful someday….And once I can rid my sewing machine fright, I want to make use of all of my vintage fabric I’ve collected over the years!
Beyond cute, enough said. This may even be in the realm of my crochet ability.
This flickr user included a pattern for this cutey, and I have all the right colors at home. This shall become my Saturday night project, I can’t wait!
I promise to snap some pics of upcoming projects and share. I NEED to get better at this blogging thing.
Ta-ta for now. xo

Looks like somebody is craving sweets today….
Special Thanks to Silvia Leite. Most of the images used came from her “Tea Party” album on flickr. Her crafts are incredible, and so delicious looking!!
I’m about to close up shop at Butter Toast today. I’m thinking I need a pit-stop for some sweets on my way home. Teehee.
Ciao for now <3

Just a little CUTENESS for your pretty eyes on this lovely Wednesday afternoon.
Please forgive me for the short post. Life has been crazy busy since moving the store (For those of you who don’t know, Butter Toast has joined the ranks of the Roosevelt Arts District here in downtown Phoenix: 908 N 6th St, Phx, 85004). I will be trying my hardest to keep up with posts here in the near future..
P.s.- I want EVERYTHING from this shop! UBER CUTE.

I’m looking forward to continuing this Blast from the Past series for-ev-er….there is so much out there that I miss, and as I age the list of rad things that used-to-be will continue to grow. Ah the memories.
A few games I hope you will remember (and hopefully some you still play!):
Every little girl's favorite game <3
THE original mystery game.
So fun!... even if I sucked at it.
Survivial of the hungriest!
I STILL play this game religiously.
Set up for this game took longer than playtime, haha.

The 80's will never die.
Ta ta for now.

Tis’ a small collection of the faves that got me through childhood.
Trolls! Trolls! Trolls! In every color.
I could still play with this all day long.
Retractable hair to style. Fave!
I can't bake, but I'm sure I could impress the boyfriend with this baby.
My boy cousins would only play Barbies with me if they could use the New Kids on the Block dolls. Teehee.
Itty bitty Polly Pocket (I was an only child, haa)
The inevitable schoolyard game.
I'm still unsure how this became a toy fad, but yes, I had some pogs.
My ultimate childhood toy: SKIP IT!
It’s concluded that my new Blast from the Past series greatly hinders my work productivity– All I want to do is reminisce on how fantastic being a kid was. I could google image search my life away remembering all the cool shit we used to do/have/love. Such a fine line between work and play…
Ta ta for now. Xo.

Since I’m trying oh-so-hard to blog more, I decided to take a few snapshots of fashionistas and fashionistos that strolled through our boutique this past First Friday. I meant to get this post up on Saturday, but in le crazy life (crazy-busy) nothing gets done on time.
Seth sporting a Butter Toast blazer.
Caleb & (I know I know his name) looking hipper than hip.
Jasmine looking pretty, per usual
Awesome boot man.
Awesome boot man & his stylish friends.
The always stylish Bam & plaid coated friend.
Hot & sexy Butter Toast shoppers
Crazy cool phone purse lady.
Eddie & Derrick in all their awesomeness
Robert of Java Magazine & friends. Please note the fantastic handlebar stash.
The drinks started flowing and the photo taking came to a halt. This weekend was full of fun fashion, this is just a glimpse of how hot downtown Phoenix can be.
Yes, I’m behind on blogging. And yes, there will be another installment of Blast from the past tomorrow <3
