Zelda Character Zipper Pouches

I’ve been meaning to share these for a few weeks now. This was one of those last-minute projects that I was SUPER excited about, rushed to get done, and then didn’t end up being so happy with. I messed up the sizing on a couple of my pattern pieces, so they didn’t come together quite…

{Etsy Love}

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 These little watercolor paintings amaze me. I love that they are in embroidery hoops, and the details are stunning. I’ve been wearing headbands a lot lately, and I just love this print. I’m a sucker for terrariums and this crystal shaped glass box is killing me. Cutest Jayne Cobb ever! I love everything about…

Project Juniper USA

One of the many, many, MANY things I love about Juniper is her love of learning. Or I should say, obsession with learning. It’s her favorite thing. After dinner, sometimes we’ll sit in the living room and ask her what she wants to learn about. She’ll think real hard for a minute and then say…

September via Instagram

Seriously, I feel like I say this every single month, but September was CRAZY busy! Between work, work, kids, dentist trips, and more work… things were just nuts. I’m really hoping for a more relaxing October. Never in my life have I been one to enjoy Autumn (just because it meant Winter was coming. Bleh.)…

365 Days Outside > 327-332

Day 327 After dinner we sat on the deck swing for a while and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We talked a lot about how it will be autumn soon. Juniper is REALLY excited about jumping in leaf piles, she talks about it every day! Also, Halloween is an exciting topic. Day 328 I came home…

A Painting for Tee

I am terrible. I’ve had this painting done for WEEKS and I haven’t mailed it off yet because I keep thinking I want to make some more little handmade goodies to go with it! (Tee won my giveaway a million years ago.) Next week I’m going to get into Crafty Bootcamp mode because there are…

Fantastic Illustrations

You all know I am in love with George Alexopolous, his work never ceases to impress me. Once I received that first illustration of us sitting on the bench, I just knew I had to order another one. The bottom illustration was a birthday gift for one of my best friends and he NAILED it.…

Event Recap

Oh my goodness, last week was CRAZY! The big trip to St. Louis went really well. I didn’t figure out how to shoot in full manual, but I did learn enough to take some pretty decent shots at the event. Of course, I took the ‘take a million photos and at least a dozen of…

365 Days Outside > 320-326

Day 320 While we were in Connecticut, we went to Silver Sands beach with my sister and a whole bunch of littles. Oh how I’ve missed the beach! Needless to say, there is no ocean here in Missouri.. The kids both LOVED the water, which was nice and warm. It was the perfect beach day.…

365 Days Outside > 313-319

Day 313 Today was not exactly a pleasant day outside. There was lots of crying and complaining, just one of those days. I figured I’d post it just to show you all that this challenge is not always peaches and cream! We got a Christmas catalog in the mail, and Juniper said “I want this,…
