Looks wonderful! We'd make a good quilting team - I have piles of quilt tops and loathe sandwiching & quilting. But I love hand binding so there's that. If I were rich and famous, I'd have all my tops sent out for professional quilting. The girls are sure to cherish these forever.

The tape wall is a great idea. I wonder if it will stick on our textured walls... it's something I'd like to try because I change my mind so often.

The book turned out fantastic. I wonder if my almost 5 year old would like this. Worth a shot. Thanks for the code!

Thank you Elise! This is wonderful. I like how the white paint seeped under the letters a tiny bit. I'm working on lots of gallery walls all over our house, and this print will be perfect for either the playroom or my son's bedroom. Can't wait to print it out. I think I'll make one that says "Follow Your Arrow" to go on our arrow gallery wall too. Good vibes for your big decisions! Thanks again.

Thanks Jacee! I was at Ulta yesterday and noticed the It cosmetics line, but didn't look at it. I wish I would have. I saw the Yes To Grapefruit stuff at Target, but it's all on super clearance at both of my stores. They didn't have my color left, and I figured it must be getting discontinued. I ended up getting Juice Beauty CC Cream at Ulta, which is actually recommended by EWG. I'm not sure I love it enough yet (just wore it for half a day) to keep it, so I'll check out your recommendation!

I was going to ask the same thing. I was thinking of making a rug like this as well. What kind of needle are you using (question for both Naomi and Elise)? I need to look into it more, but maybe there's a better type of needle to use instead of a universal. Perhaps a denim/heavy duty needle?

This is a timely post for me, as I've recently started making the switch to products with more quality ingredients. I have been using the EWG Skin Deep database to help me choose and it has been really helpful. If a product isn't listed there, I can still use it to look up the ingredients. I'm obsessed with Egyptian Magic cream for my face moisturizer. I have (had?) oily skin but since using this (and alternating with Josie Maran Light Argan Oil depending on how dry my skin feels or if I want to apply makeup right away) my skin drinks it up and I don't have oil slicks anymore. I think it has to do with balancing out your oil levels so your skin doesn't produce as much. I just switched from Maybelline Full & Soft mascara, which I've used since they introduced it back in the day, to LOVING Mineral Fusion Volumizing Mascara (found at Whole Foods). I used F&S so long because all other mascaras irritated my eyes. The Mineral Fusion does not irritate my eyes and it looks so good on my lashes. Maybelline tests on animals, which is so unfortunate. Animal testing just so people can look pretty just seems so shallow and wrong. I'm looking for a tinted moisturizer or CC cream type product with a good amount of SPF, a deodorant, and a body SPF, so I'm eager to check out the links and suggestions. Thanks!

I definitely remember the Whole30 Egg Rut. I love eggs, but relying on them for Whole30 makes them so monotonous. As for oatmeal, I haven't tried this, but I've heard that it's wonderful: http://againstallgrain.com/2013/01/04/banana-nut-porridge/ This might be totally out there, but I have a few popular paleo cookbooks I am getting rid of (a result of KonMari). If you're interested, I'd love to pass them along to you. Just let me know!
