Emma, thanks for the earnest & heartfelt post. There's a lot of wisdom in those four lessons. xo.

this almost made me cry. so thoughtful, so sincere. THESE are all the things people need, not blankets and expensive frilly outfits your baby will end up wearing once and then spitting up all over & ruining forever. and ESPECIALLY the thing about cleaning up without asking. that's the best.

Thank you Jill!

thank you so much! I was thinking about this comment last night & it's so funny that you mention I have "captions" in my work. I learned design by working on the high school yearbook, and for years I worked as a textbook designer. a lot of captions in both of those things! maybe it's just a habit I've acquired without realizing it.

thanks Julie! I'm notoriously bad about wallowing in my problems instead of just *doing* something about them, so I always find it helps to try hard and make real changes. and I always recommend art or journalling when it comes to personal stuff... just the act of thinking about a problem while creating something makes me feel more calm and peaceful.

ha! our pool from the last few summers was a hand me down from a neighbor and it was GROSS; we just threw it away at the end of last summer. I JUST bought this one at Target last week so you're not out of luck yet! It was little but only $10, so even if this one gets gross I won't fee bad about throwing it out.

thank you Robyn! I don't know how many more of these I could write since everyday is essentially the same, and lots of days are much more boring, like "I was really tired so David watched TV for way too long while I took a nap." :)

thanks Kimberly! I considered just saving it as a draft to keep for myself to remember, but once I got to the end I realized I might as well just post it for everyone to see.

this post made my heart ache (in a happy way!) it just brought back so many deep memories of my childhood. i grew up in south dakota and we went to a lot of festivals like this: a strange mix of traditional Native American activities, plus trinkets and root beer and carnival rides. i bet your kids will treasure these pictures when they're older.

thanks Leah! I feel the same way, I'm drawn to color, but am cautious about using it in my home or my art. The funny thing is, I actually dress pretty colorfully and always wonder why it's easy for me to combine colors in my clothes but not other places.
thanks Kimberly!
ha! great timing on this post. I've been acquiring more houseplants recently and yesterday was out and about looking for new containers for some of them that have grown. i just couldn't find anything I liked, and I thought "i wonder where Rachel finds her plant containers, she always has great ones." ;)

i just found your blog recently (i think via on a comment on Kelly Purkey's) and wanted to let you know how much I enjoy it! i like your take on Project Life. I live outside of Chicago in the suburbs, but I was a city girl for a few years, and lots of what you write about brings back those memories for me. it's fun to read!

i saw a spread from this book on pinterest and I immediately had to come and see the rest of it! what a FUN book. i really like the way you use embellishments: it adds a lot of style but isn't overwhelming. i've been considering using a Handbook for a sort of modified Project Life (keeping up with weekly spreads is just not for me) and seeing this book sealed the deal! It gives me so many new ideas to try.
