I mean seriously. You just made my life so much easier. I'm so excited about this one I had to come right in and blog about it, crappy photo quality and all. As far as life-changing pins go, this is... Continue reading

A little over a month ago, my sweet funny little old man Ted left to be with his Original Person forever and ever. I always realized this was just a stop on his way there, and find much comfort these... Continue reading

I just want to thank all of you who said such kind things after my last post. The comments here on the blog, on Facebook, and in personal messages really mean a lot. I'm touched by your response and just... Continue reading

I'm going to go out on a limb here. If you know me at all or have been reading this blog for a while, you know I am rather guarded when it comes to my personal life. I'll share bits... Continue reading

Flipping back through my sketchbook a bit, I came across this little tidbit from a couple months ago: Funny how I'd already forgotten this. How many of us do this to ourselves, and even if we realize we do it,... Continue reading

I shared that photo from my first morning in the new studio on Facebook the other morning, but then this happened: What's in here? Oh look, a feather. Sweet. Oh hey, look over there. Gotta run. Buhbye. Happy Caturday everyone. Continue reading

You've seen bits and pieces of my studio before. You may have seen it on my Etsy About Page, I've shared shots of it here, as part of a blog hop, in various interviews and articles, most recently in Labor... Continue reading

As I've mentioned there have been big changes around my house. One of those changes has been the addition of a new family member. And today is his birthday. Well, sort of. He's been here a month now, so I... Continue reading

This is something that's been in the works since last summer, and I have been absolutely dying to share with you all this time. But then when it was published, I was deep into a heavily introverted hibernation state so... Continue reading

Hey there! Have you visited the Henry Glass blog lately? The most recent Desire to Inspire challenger, Julie Cefalu, created some amazing pieces using my American Dreams fabrics. Go check out the whole post for more super fun and inspiring... Continue reading

Hey there. How've you been? I've missed you. I realize it's not atypical for me to disappear from the blogosphere for months at a time so you probably didn't even notice I'd been away. I do tend to get super... Continue reading

So how often does this actually happen in real-life: I'm here at the computer and take a peek at Pinterest while waiting for a big file to upload. I see something that looks good, get up right that second, make... Continue reading

Ok, I can't go on without first admitting to you that I didn't make up my New Favorite Phrase: it was said to me the other day by my clever friend Sue. I warned her I was going to steal... Continue reading

I don't know about you, but every year I get a little bit more annoyed than the year before at the term Black Friday. Maybe it's the fact that this time of year I'm constantly bombarded by overbearing advertisers leading... Continue reading

Hey there! How would you like a nice little $10 coupon to use in the Etsy shop? Today I'm (finally) launching into this whole holiday season thing with the first little giveaway (yay for giveaways!). Just go to my Facebook... Continue reading

Leaves are turning colors and falling, the air is crisp and cool. Bright little green moments like this are fewer and farther between, so let's soak them in while we can: Molly agrees. Continue reading

I'm always going on and on about how this is my happy place. Today I thought I'd share just a few of the things that make me happy when I'm in here: Supplies and books, my Granddad's hardware drawers, and... Continue reading

Yup. Those of you who know me personally already know that as a weird super-private introvert I entered into the world of social media sort of kicking and screaming a little. Ok, a lot. I've dipped my toes slowly and... Continue reading

Did you know about this? Well, you should. I didn't, until the kind and talented quilter Maria Tavey Umhey shared with me this gorgeous quilt she just finished (click to see it bigger). This particular quilt was created in memory... Continue reading

The newest member of the family and cute little old man of the house isn't so sure about change, or travel, or a lot of other things for that matter - but he is pretty content with the pace of... Continue reading

I realize that the price for spending my birthday away from civilization is that I'm going to have to make my own birthday cake. To be fair, I should add that if it were important to me, Husband Guy would... Continue reading

Every morning we were at the beach, Molly and I would look for stories in the sand. Stories about where the waves had been. Stories about who else had been traveling through it or even flying over it. Then we... Continue reading

There was more small driftwood on our beach this month than I remember seeing in a long, long time. A gazillion tiny canvases waiting for tiny paintings. At least that's how I see driftwood. Every day the tide would cover... Continue reading
