whollykao finally ponied up the $ to try Jeni's! It's delicious, but I thought the Brambleberry flavor has too much stuff in it (too much crisp!) 4w
  •   thedanielrecord Don't forget to try dark chocolate! 4w
  •   jenlovesyoga I tried it when urban acres was giving it free mommas on Mothers Day. Super yummy. It's so rich, I found I eat less. So I think it's $$ well spent. 4w
  •   chantalalala @himynamesjen just for you 4w
  •   whollykao @noemiecw it was worth trying, and is def good quality ice cream. but if you make your own (using full fat ingredients), I bet it would be comparable quality. it took me like a year to work up to wanting to pony up the $ to try it though! 4w
  •   whollykao @thedanielrecord ah next time!! is that your fave? 4w
  •   whollykao @jenlovesyoga ah they were giving it out?! that's awesome! 4w
  •   thedanielrecord @whollykao it is! It's just just chocolate but it's super rich, like eating frozen fudge 4w
  •   noemiecw Lol I've been eyeing it every time I'm at whole foods. 4w

whollykao just posted this to my @estiemade account, so I'm sorry if you follow me on both and see this again! ---------------------------------------this is my a prototype for a ring-holder necklace. my sis wanted a necklace that would hold her engagement ring while she was in the operating room (she's in residency, and can't wear her ring at work). this is what I came up with. it could also be something you could wear when you go to the gym and don't want to work out with your ring on. thoughts? I want to make more, and am wondering if people out there would be interested/wear this. 1mon
  •   come_on_ilene Love it!! 1mon
  •   karenmdana Ditto! I wore mine like this while pregnant too! Great idea! 1mon
  •   amycmei That's awesome! How clever, @whollykao! 1mon
  •   kels_er That's awesome!! 1mon
  •   hernewleaf Very clever! I would wear one (I work in a hospital too) but I would probably prefer if the chain was a bit longer so when the rings were attached, I could tuck it into the front of my scrubs. 1mon
  •   sksurbina Awesome!! I'll tell Chris to get one next time I'm preggo...I missed my ring so much! 1mon
  •   achen4me ️ it! Very clever. How secure is the clasp? I would use it during the winter when I'm always putting lotion on my hands at work and don't like leaving my ring on my desk. 4w
  •   whollykao thanks for the feedback y'all! didn't think of the pregnant finger/swelling thing, but that's so true! And the clasp snaps on, and you have to pry it open w your fingernail to release the ring, so it's secure. thx! @dayvacare @karenjeanliao @karenmdana @hernewleaf @sksurbina @achen4me @come_on_ilene 4w

whollykao working on inventory for the etsy dallas Jingle Bash (this Saturday from 11-5 at Gilley's downtown). wish I was faster at making things, too 2mon
  •   princesshungry Ooooohhhh pretty! 2mon
  •   whollykao @princesshungry thanks!:) 2mon
  •   moultonatx I know the feeling (I'm sure you're doing great!) 2mon
  •   whollykao @moultonatx aw thanks. glad to know someone can relate! also...I think social media skews my perception about how fast ppl work - some jewlery makers are posting tons of stuff every day! so it makes me feel like I work extra slow, you know? 2mon
