    I don’t care what they say but I think Beyonce caused the blackout at the Super Bowl so yea, we can blame her for channeling Nemo to visit NY too. Heck, she’s prolly responsible for half the global warming the way she ‘wastes’ resources. (Ouch, that one hurt.)

    So onward, upcycling soldiers….we have to take up the slack for Beyonce!

    P.S. Love the sweater pillow and the LP cupcake stand!
