weekend wrap-up

family christmas card

Today I’m sick.  Not with Lupus, that kind of fun is every day.  Today I’m sick with the regular nonsense people get sick with in the Fall.  So, when I talk it sounds like this:

I’b stuffy. And I’b running a fever.

*cough, cough*

Pause for dramatic effect.

Anyway, all kinds of cool stuff happened on the interwebs this week.

Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. Emily :

    Hope you feel better soon! Great picture! For some reason, I stopped getting your blog updates (but they’ve happily returned) and missed that you’re writing on Baby Center. That is so cool!

    • Allison :

      Oh, I’m so happy they’re back. And BabyCenter is a lot of fun. Great content!

      Thanks Emily!

  2. Lissy :

    I just discovered your site. I’m excited to take a look around.
    I hope you get better soon.
    I also deal with stupid Lupus.

    • Allison :


      I’m happy to have you! Thanks much, and I’m sorry to hear about Lupus, it’s the absolute pits. PITS!

  3. Dina :

    hope you feel better soon.
