Several years ago I happened upon the most captivating artwork at a show I was attending in Minneapolis. My soap booth was set up close to Lucky Nielsen's display and I kept wandering away from my own stand to get... Continue reading

We woke on Tuesday suddenly ready to be home. No debate, no hesitation, no disappointment. Just ready. We all felt the farm calling us back. So we hastily packed our things, cleaned the cabin, and set out for home just... Continue reading

Ssssh... don't talk about autumn quite yet. Summer is still in full-swing. It's only August. There are hikes to be had and treasures to be found. Patterns to write and dolls to be create. Berries to forage and adventures to... Continue reading

I think the most enthusiastic feedback I got on my recent kitchen remodel was about my snazzy Nikki McClure switch plates. I cranked them out in an evening and they were so quick, so simple, and so darn satisfying. My... Continue reading

Confession: I have barely canned anything yet this summer. I know. Weird. But I got really carried away with the canning last year - mostly jams and pickles of all sorts ~ to the point where we're still well stocked,... Continue reading

Kim! I'm so excited for you. I'd love to hear more. Shoot me a note if you want to share! The kids and I are dreaming of a trip abroad as well so I'd love to pick your brain.

What are the requirements where you live, Audrey? We're blessed to live in Wisconsin where we don't need to file credits. I wonder how you could work within the system where you live and yet reach for what your heart desires. I know there is a balance to be found - though it might take a hefty dose of creativity to make it come together.

That's the first step. The hardest. You've got it in you.

If you could put aside fear, and worry, and everyone else's idea of who you should be what would you become? If you could set down "should" and "can't" and "too late" and pick up hope and dreams and possibility,... Continue reading

Of course you can share. ~ "Rachel Wolf, Clean." seems adequate. :-)
Lovely. Thanks!

Can we get real for a minute? It's about my garden. And who knows. Maybe everything else that matters. You see, I went through a major deer-in-headlights phase with my vegetable garden this spring and I think I've come out... Continue reading

Hi Trina, It seems they are redesigning their store so the old link was bad. Here it is:

They were so simple! I dont have a tutorial but I bet with a little googling around youd find one. Basically I just used an X-acto knife to cut rectangles a bit larger than the switch plate cover (say 1 bigger on two sides). Then I centered the switch plate on the rectangle, held it down on the paper and cut an X where there were holes. For outlet holes I cut an X and then a few more slices so that there were 6 points or so for each side. Then I smeared the whole thing on the back with mod podge and attached it, tucking in the flaps through the holes and mitering the outside corners. Gosh. This could be a tutorial. Maybe I should write one!
Thanks again, Tree. I figured it out and filed a complaint. All the best, Rachel
