One of my favorite things about moving to Kentucky is living with a librarian. This means my sister takes my books back and picks up new ones for me whenever! I'm living the dream, you guys. Since I do live with a librarian and have absolutely no excuse to not... Continue reading

I have a real love-hate relationship with New Year's Resolutions. I love the possibility but I hate the mega high expectations (and 9 times out of 10, in my case, the eventual letdown). That never stopped me though! I'm hopping on board the One Little Word train this year and... Continue reading

Hello again! I decided to take a month long break from blogging in February and ended up taking off 9 months + deleting my entire 3+ years blog history. And, damn, it feels good to start over. I don't have any plan for what goes here. There is no end... Continue reading

I love that blanket!! Thank you for the chance to win it (it snowed 6 inches in Iowa last night so it'll definitely be put to good use here!) I started reading your blog about 4 years ago. I had moved from Iowa to Nevada and had NO IDEA what I was going to do with my life. I started reading your blog and a few others and got so inspired. It's still the blog I look forward to every morning and I save it until the end so it's the last one I read- please excuse the super nerdiness :) One of my favorite posts this year- and I'm sure I'm not alone here- was the How to Tackle Huge Projects. I'm a big idea person and a trying to be better detail/ action person and this really helped. Thank you so much and I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

I love the look of this + I SO want to make a joke about it being a nice day for a white weaving (I'm 94% sure that if Billy Idol were to remake White Wedding, this is what he would sing about) Oh! And the archives look great!

Love this so much! I think it's so fascinating to see different people's different motivations + strategies when it comes to business. Also, as someone who works making kits at a quilt store, I can tell you- people LOVE kits!

I would love to print all of the photos of my family! We're not all living in the same place anymore and it's hard sometimes! Having more photos up would make me so happy!!
Oh my word, the things I would do with all of that washi!! Thank you so much for the opportunity! Now I'm going to go fishtail braid my hair. :)
You AND Kate?! What a great week for baby announcements! Congratulations!!
