Knock your Lights Out

This neat lamp is lit when upright and turns off when knocked over. The interaction with the pin is learned almost automatically, when a person tries to upright the tipped lamp. Perfect for the bowler in your life, or for the sporty kids' room.

Feeling Fresh!

These clips are so smart! I always need more clips to keep food fresh, and these help you remember when you opened the package! These are small enough, you could even set one and throw it in your makeup bag to remind you when to throw out your makeup!

These cubic placecard holders will fit any decor or function. I'm envisioning a wintery white and silver tablescape. Heavy to avoid tipping, and shiny to catch your guests' eyes. Bon appetit!

Got Milk?

Hi everyone! I just wanted to leave a post to apologize for being MIA the last few weeks. School work has really increased lately, and research time, AND I think I may have figured out what I want to do my thesis on (maybe!) and that will take even more research (has it been done before, funding, timeline, etc.)...

I'm planning on taking a little bit of a break here for the next few weeks as well, until Thanksgiving break or so. I'll still try to put up the occasional post, but I know that without regular posting a lot of people stop visiting, so thank you if you still stop by every so often (I'm pretty sure I'm down to only my mom and my boyfriend, and people that keep google searching the color pink and end up at my "Jason's Room Redo" post). I also know that without me visiting your sites and leaving comments, there isn't much motivation to come by here.

I hope you all had a great Halloween (I know I did!) and I hope to see you around soon!

Also, when I come back, PPR might have a whole new look/feel. I'm feeling something different...
