Haha! Says the woman who was once going to walk a cow home on her own because she had no trailer!

So lovely. Over the years your list of sponsors has been such an inspiration for me. Both for mindful, beautiful shopping for our home and gift giving..... and to support businesses who believe in supporting writers (and artists and dreamers......) Happy gratitude and Thanksgiving to you & the family. xo~

Yesterday sort of ran away from me. I had a heap of errands to run and braved the grocery store in pre-turkey-day-plus-pre-first-big-snow-of-the-season chaos. This meant there was no milk, toilet paper, or cream cheese. At the register with my giant turkey, the cashier balked at the price and made sure it was right. Yes, I told her. And I'll be...

It was amazing! I had a very successful day at my booth and the kids had the best time ever! I will certainly apply again next year. The children's activities were incredible! It was our first visit to a Waldorf event, even though we've been Waldorf inspired learners for years.... what a gift to my youngest two. Their eyes lit up visiting the building.... it was magical :)

How fun is that tote!!! Such a good idea. Sophie would want me to do her bunnies. For sure. Might have to get some transfer paper for the printer…… 8 weeks?!?!?! I can’t wait!!

I am smitten with those bees too. Though I am certainly biased ;) Thank you for the sweet words. I am so happy they came out well!

A few weeks ago I shared an album of images on facebook asking for help to choose some images to get made into notecards. I then ordered cards, envelopes, and plastic protective sleeves.... all from different places. I was nervous something would be the wrong size..... but as things began to arrive over the last few weeks my worry was... Continue reading

Just once. I think it would be too hard to dry them out. It is a bummer to toss them…. so I cut mine in half and throw them in the compost! You could make drawstring style bags! But that was a bit more intense in the sewing department…..

I’m looking forward to sharing them :) Trying to keep them easy for my fellow oh-my-goodness-it’s-three-days-before-Christmas-procrastinator friends out there. These can be whipped up in under an hour!

Thanks Alexa! It seemed like a fun idea to share some easy holiday gifting ideas. I’m hoping others will leave links of what they’re up to as well….. the more the merrier :)

Good for you! One of these years I will remember to start much, much earlier. A friend of mine writes a list of gift ideas during the holidays for the NEXT season and then starts after the new year. So smart!

That boy is so funny. They are usually crafting up some big scheme (aka mess!) while I am sewing in the studio. As long as they aren’t fighting and the kitchen stays clean, I am a happy mama. And yes to paint! Our kitchen was sort of cantaloupe orange…. and is now white, plus the yellow over the tan in the dining room…. everything feels brighter cleaner and freshened up!

So true about the paint! We’ve got a few rooms down and it makes so much difference for so little money. I went with the blue/grey! It looks really lovely with all those prints :)

Pssst..... I don't want to alarm any of you. But do you know what today is? Six weeks until Christmas. Well, six weeks and three days to be exact. I usually notice it's almost Christmas sometime around December 10th. And then I'm trying to pull together a whole lot of handmade gifts and I'm running crazy getting things ready. It's...

The words were perfect~ And that potter's bench is amazing, right? He's got me beat a million times over with his creative mind. I'm good at precise and careful sewing.... he just dreams things up. It's pretty awesome ;) The kids gifted a lot of the pots and used them.... so a few got broken. The little ones hold jewelry or tweezers in the bathroom. We keep it all too!
