How exciting! Sounds like a good place to get your chill on. Will you investigate for me if non guests can use the photobooth? I'm coming to la Quinta mid April and have my heart set on a good photo strip or two.

Awesome. I just scrapbooked yesterday with some friends for the first time in a long while. I pulled an old picture out (four years old) and decided to scrapbook it with thoughts from today instead of as if it just happened. That was eye opening to me. I love the different perspective looking back on older photos. Have fun!
Toggle Commented Mar 23, 2014 on hello :) at there was this one time...
I just love your blog so much. Looking forward to the new kits, my girls are into their "babies" and it's the most darling thing. Of course my daughter loves her baby she calls "my newborn" that is a horribly ugly precious moments doll from my childhood. I've actually had people shutter when they look at what she's cuddling. So I make lots of tiny clothes, by request. Perhaps she could be convinced to add a cuter member to the family in the form of one of your dear animals. I love that you're in Portland. I'm in Salem, and quite often I look at your blog on dreary days or very tired days (I have a non sleeping 19 month old) and remeber things actually are quite nice. I also dress much better in my head. I had a moment of panic when it got sunny, spring is the hardest for me to dress in. The rain, the layers, the cold, the sun. It confuses me. Plus it's so much more fun to dress the little ladies...

I love these tops. I've been wanting to do dresses like this but I don't think I can pull it off breastfeeding. If you do, tell me how!!! It's one thing I've missed in the last 5.5 years of breastfeeding. My "style" has take a direct hit. Totally unrelated: our library has a table where you put magazines you're done with and you can grab ones others leave (all free). I left a taproot there, basically turned around and it was gone. Hope I made somebody's day! :)

I had to look because I thought we started our blogs at the same time (a time when people didn't know what blogs were if I remeber correctly!). And yup, I'm nine on March 7th. Love that I got to get to know you because of this blogging thing!

Love it! These are the kind of projects I need too, because rare is the more than one hour block of time. Love the little photo bomber above too :)

Love the color. And I love winter more as I get older too. Snuggling up with babes reading, knitting, cookie baking. I love it. I love those books too, with the transparent pages, we have a bunch. We just read A Nest Full of Eggs and put out bits of wool for our bird friends. Hopefully we'll see them using it soon; a sure sign of spring!

Yay! What a food surprise to see you're updating! I meant to tell you in my email (or maybe I did?) that while I haven't been updating much I do have a (private) Instagram: squeekie23 if you're on there. If not I'll be expecting more posts... You know, with all your free time. :)
I'm working on the same thing right now! My first stranded project: I'm so glad you linked to that site. No I had not heard of it and now I want to knit the cowl they linked to with triangles, looks awesome.

I have to do these handpies, they seem like such a yummy winter food. If your yarn is breaking lots (and wool) it is possible the moths got to it. I'm trying some stranded work myself and my problem is twisting stitches. I think I need to you tube it.

Yes, yes, yes. I have a whole post written up about this, just need to add pictures to it and hit publish. I did 2012 complete, minus some embellishing I'd like to go back and do, to replace the post-its with stamped dates, etc. Last year I decided I didn't have time, and in July Tuesday said something cute and I wanted to record it, but not on a full page. So I just started in the middle. I did all of July, and stopped. Then I did all of December, super quick, throwing cards and pics in with rounded, square, whatever corners. That is my take this year, do whatever. Busy week? Can't do it? Just skip it. Jump in when ever. I have a ton more thoughts on this, you'll have to check out my post when I get it up!

My thoughts exactly. Love the story. Wish I would have done something like this. Next year!

We're going to be flying into Palm Springs on April 23rd, and leaving the 27th. Not sure of the plans while we're there, but if I can swing it I will for sure come see you. Dude we have to craft together someday... have to!!!

Love these. I just popped over to your blog to grab your monthly highlights link, because that is something I'm adding to my resolutions. Here's to new starts and good goals... And maybe I'll see you in the new year?

How long does raw milk stay good for? Do you have to use it up/process it somehow right when you bring it in? Or can you save it up a bit? I'm thinking of some frontier life poems and stories where the women had washing day, bread making day, etc. maybe you need a designated ice cream making day :)

I've never hand stitched a quilt, but that makes me want to! My local shop has a modern hand quilting class, wanna take it with me? :)
