Craft a Creeper

Craft a Creeper

For Luca’s Minecraft-themed 6th Birthday Party, we were looking for something that could double as an activity and a decoration.  I wasn’t finding a lot of simple ideas on Pinterest that didn’t require lots of supplies or prep time, so when this idea for creating a Creeper struck me, I knew it was exactly what […]

DFW Fiber Fest Wrap Up

DFW Fiber Fest Wrap Up

I had such a wonderful weekend!  For the first time since…I don’t know…before kids maybe?…I had a girl’s getaway weekend!  It was so exciting! My BFF Chrissy and I planned a little weekend retreat to check out DFW Fiber Fest in Irving, TX! We don’t live terribly far away (about an hour) so we didn’t […]

Easter Memories

Easter Memories

How was your Easter?  Ours was a relaxing day at home with family.  The kids hunted eggs no less than 3 times and they both loved it!  Isla was definitely into it this year, and Luca was a great big brother to leave the easy ones for her!  We like to put coins in Easter […]

61 Day Spring Clean Stash Down

61 Day Spring Clean Stash Down

I shared last week that all of my book samples are complete and I’m ready for some selfish knitting before committing to my next design project.  My Blue Sand Cardigan is coming along nicely (after a 30 row set back because…reading skillz, y’all) and now I’m energized to work away at some of my massive […]

Christmas 2015 Wrap Up

Christmas 2015 Wrap Up

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We had a lovely and relaxing time together and with family.  We tried to spread our gift giving out over the whole week as I find our kiddos get overwhelmed pretty quickly with lots of gifts.  We decided to celebrate Christmas Eve at home with our traditional […]

Christmas Crafty

It’s been so hard to feel in the Christmas spirit this year.  I think the easy thing to blame it on is the weather–it’s been downright warm in Texas.  Hard to feel merry and bright when you’re leaving the house in short sleeves and flip flops 🙁 We spent the rainy weekend inside playing games […]

Happy December!

Happy December!

Hello friends!  Can you believe it’s December already?  I have so much left on my to-do list and new ideas are cropping up everyday!  I’m about 1/3 of the way finished hand quilting Luca’s Confetti Quilt, so that’s a good start.  But my knitting is woefully behind.  I finished my Lace and Stripes Cowl and […]

Deck the Halls

I caved.  I totally did.  In my defense, I was trying to do something sweet for my husband, who doesn’t particularly enjoy putting up the Christmas decorations.  Since he was away for the weekend, I thought it would be a fun activity for me and the kids to put up the tree to surprise him […]

Let’s Skip Fall

Let’s Skip Fall

So I wrote last week about how I’m so jealous of all of you in other parts of the country and the glorious Falls you’re having complete with changing leaves, cool temps, sweaters, plaid and hand knits 😛 So I’ve decided to just skip Fall entirely and go straight to Christmas.  No…I’m not going to […]

Autumn Jealousy

Autumn Jealousy

Hello Friends, I’ve had such a hard time getting motivated to share here on the blog the last few weeks (you’ve probably noticed!).  I think it’s mostly because I’m just so bummed about the absence of Fall.  It’s been balmy here in Texas (which of course is no surprise) but this is the first year […]
