Oh, I'd love that kelly green! It'd be the perfect bag for all my travels after moving to Germany this summer!
Oh parsnips are so good; do they get sweeter like carrots the longer they are in the ground? Yay on the first harvest of the year!

Image Source In January I wrote about wanting to let go of fear, and to live in the light. It's all about cultivating the life I want. Over these past few months, I have been working towards that and wanted to document my progress here. Now, these are the steps... Continue reading

Not much happened this particular week, until the weekend trip we took. I decided to feature the trip on this two page spread. The 4 x 6 journal card comes from Studio Calico's Sugar Rush kit, and the transparent 3 x 4 comes from the Blue Note kit, also from... Continue reading

Hi Elise! I really like the podcast so far. One thing that could be helpful to listeners is to have a show notes page for episodes, that way any sites mentioned in the interviews (like the blogs Sarah mentioned) could be linked to. Just an idea ;) Great work!

Sorry for my absense this week. Life has been swamped. Now that April is here, we're three months away from our big move to Germany. Three. That may seem like a ways away, especially since the weather is still cold and there's still snow on the ground, but it's really... Continue reading

Awesome collections, I love the woods and teal!
More lambs! So much fun. I can't wait to see pictures of lambs frolicking. Though I adore the Brönte theme, I'm with Harper: Swizzle and Lemonade! Also I love the fifth photo. Emily looks so proud, showing off her babe.

Oh, I love it all! The new washi is great, and I love the typography of both too. I will take one of everything!
Yay, lambs! Thank you for sharing! Well wishes to all the beings on your farm.

Love the layouts, I am leaning towards photo-centric ones as well. Penelope looks like your mini-me! Also, there's nothing better than seeing hubbies holding babies, especially your own! :)

This week I finished my research paper (YAY!!!!) and then got the itch to start projects. Maybe it's the free time for a couple of days, or maybe it's the NEED for spring to be present. Maybe still, I've been bitten by the knitting bug. Whatever the reason, I've started... Continue reading

I haven't been posting about my project life progress, because I put it on hold. I didn't have a spot for my stuff, so the way I would work on my album is to lug my album to either the floor or the coffee table. If I chose the floor,... Continue reading

Mother Earth sure has a sick sense of humor. Yesterday was the first day of Spring, but you would've never thought, if you were here. It was cold (20 degrees) and rainy/icy which later turned to snow. It's the kind of day that chills you to the bones. No matter... Continue reading

How right, Ezra is! The lambs will come soon. Also, applying that same logic, this winter *will* go away eventually... right? Could Emily possibly have two lambs coming? She looks doubly wide!

Through the hubbub of the weekend, I was able to whip up another sockhead, per request of my daughter. She picked out the yarn: Handmaiden Casbah in Woodland Sprite. I love, love, love this yarn! It's soft yet robust. It's lofty yet dense. It has great stitch definition, and the... Continue reading

St Paddy's is a favorite holiday of ours. Coming from an Irish family, we celebrate St Paddy's all year long, but it's fun when the rest of the country joins us. My great-grandfather was born in Ireland, and his middle name was Patrick. After he married, he dubbed St Patrick... Continue reading

I completed Jack's sock head just in time for his birthday. He is my orange guy and he chose the perfect yarn from my stash. It's Yarn Pirate in Spooky, and it suits him so. I love how vibrant this yarn is, especially during this bleak and gray winter. With... Continue reading
