If you already purchased, you should still have access through your account on the shop site. When we add to or update courses past students still get to take advantage of that—one of the ways we work to keep adding value to our e-course program. If you don't see it in your account, email the customer service team for the shop site and they will get you taken care of. :) -Emma

Hi, friends! Today I am REALLY excited because we are opening back up our course, How to Write and Pitch a Book Proposal, written by our friend and literary agent, Lindsay Edgecombe. This course was originally launched in April 2014 and after re-evaluating, adding some new images, sprucing up the text, and just generally giving this course a few updates to make it that much better, we are excited to...

Pretty decorative boxes are one of my favorite things to have around the house (usually in little groupings with other candles or figurine type things). A lot of the time though, I love a box or container, but I'm not sure what to actually store in it! It occurred to me that most decorative boxes are actually the perfect size to be a jewelry box, and with a few quick... Continue reading

Yes! That was one of the ones I liked! His face is a longer and oval in person instead of round, smaller mane, and didn't have ears, but I liked how they constructed his loop mane compared to some of the others I saw :) Laura

Sometimes the closest I get to some spa time is the 5-10 minutes I slip away to take a shower while the kids are napping. It's sacred time, people! ;) Lately I've been trying to think of ways to make shower time a "treat yo self" experience. Yummy smelling shampoos, fancy masks... but recently I've been loving these little DIY shower melts. The peppermint and eucalyptus (with a touch of... Continue reading

Aw, Amanda! It's not easy to get out there as an introvert (take it from me who is one!) but it's worth the time and energy to find some other mamas around—I swear! Hope you find some gal pals soon to support your journey! Congrats to you! Laura :)

Let me start off by saying, Laura and I have been planning each other's baby showers for no less than three years now. So it's a dream come true that this stage in our lives is finally here! I wanted Laura's shower to be a day she would never forget and that would reflect her style as much as possible. So I filled the house with pink (not hard to... Continue reading

I appreciate the four seasons we get where I live, but I LOVE warm weather. So I am stoked along with all you spring/summer lovers out there. But one thing I run into when the weather turns warm is I become less motivated to turn my oven on. If you're the same, good news—I've got some no bake cookies to share with you today. These cookies are chewy with a... Continue reading

While we are still kind of a long way out in having our nursery ready to go (picture nervous emoji face here), it's been fun getting to start on some DIY projects that I can add into the space once we get all the big things in place (like this cute unicorn photo holder). Another idea that I was on the lookout for was a fabric lion bust to add... Continue reading
