I starting making this knitted patchwork cushion cover purely because I wanted to attempt intarsia knitting on a project that wasn’t the huge massive blankets I normally commit to making. I even had plans to donate it when it was finished or to give it away to someone who wanted... Continue reading

Thanks Deborah :)
Love the Koalas they're also so chilled out. Much cheaper than a few hours of shopping that's for sure!
Safari in Africa is my ultimate bucket list item! I was so jealous of your trip!

[Rug: World Market; Owl pin: overstock.com; Sundress: Nordstrom; Game of Thrones playing cards:Timevoid on Etsy; Cardigan: H&M; Dog-print fabric: Jo-Anns; Flats: Target; Shorts: J-Crew] Online window shopping is so much less damaging to my bank account than actual window shopping because I usually manage to talk myself out of buying...

On the last afternoon of my trip of San Diego, the conference wrapped up early and we had about 9 hours to kill before getting the red-eye back to Columbia at 11 pm that night. As soon as I’d seen the schedule (weeks in advance) I knew exactly how I’d... Continue reading

Thanks Kathy, I was lucky that the lighting was actually good for once in my living room!

Super late post going up today because poor Typepad has been down for a large portion of the morning and I wasn’t organized enough to have a post written last night. The last few days I’ve been so busy with work that I’m bring a lot of work related stress... Continue reading

I’ll admit that I’ve been finding it a little difficult to get back into the swing of things after travelling the last 4 weeks. Starting back into work on Monday of this week I suddenly realized that it was nearly a month ago that I left to go to Ireland... Continue reading

Was it really only two weeks ago that I shared my current knitting project? – it seems like so much longer. Even though I’ve been knitting needleless while in San Diego for a week I’ve still managed to make some fairly decent progress since then. I've completed the front and... Continue reading

It must be so scary as a one-woman business to think about upping the numbers to 2900! I think it's funny that you were worried about things not selling, I knew when I saw the first letterpress print that if I wanted a "made by Elise" product I'd have to jump on it. I wasn't surprised at all that they sold out so quickly I was just delighted that I was one of the lucky ones that got one. I bet there's a ton of people hoping that you'll re-launch the products next year - it's a great business model and I couldn't be happier for you!!

Couldn't agree more - best feeling ever
hee hee thanks Sarah!
Thanks Kathy those are the ones I'm most proud of!
Oh yea I really enjoyed Park Avenue - thanks for the rec!
I know what you mean - I would have happily headed off to SeaWorld without ever thinking about the whales themselves just because I would love to see and Orca. But no way would I go now. I'll check out Man on Wire this weekend thanks :)
Those are fun nicknames - my friends tried to call me Marty for a while but my Dad's name is Martin and that's his nickname so it never stuck.

I;m so glad I planned the zoo trip in advance because it really was the only moments of the trip to San Diego that I managed to stop and get any downtime in at all during the week - crazy!

I know that always gives me a giggle - I refer to you as Australian Kathy :)

I’m back! After a whirlwind few days in San Diego from which I needed the entire weekend (and then some) to recover from, I’m finally back catching up on my favourite blogs and of course updating my own with the hundreds of photos I took in San Diego. Although in... Continue reading

I was trying to decide the best place to hang the 3 new prints I recently purchases (I’ll share them next week once they’re in frames and hung) when I realised that somehow over the last year I’ve managed to accumulate a pretty substantial number of DIY painting and pictures.... Continue reading

Anyone who’s read this blog for even a short time will know that I quite enjoy binge watching TV-shows on Netflix but every so often I get really hung on watching documentaries. Netflix has a surprising number of really good, thought provoking documentaries and I thought I’d share with you... Continue reading

Wow, thank you Claudz for the Sunshine Award! I’ve been following Claudz’s blog for a long time and I get incredibly jealous of her beautiful photos of life in Johannesburg and of the safari trip she went on – that’s a big bucket list item of mine but until I... Continue reading

It’s been a busy few weeks and the next few weeks look set to be just as busy again. I’ve barely gotten my suitcases unpacked from one trip before I have to repack them for a second trip – this time off to sunny San Diego for a work conference.... Continue reading
