I started sewing when I was very young. We’re talking pillows and blankets for my barbie beds (which I happened to construct out of shoe boxes), hair scrunchies (they were an 80’s thing in case you don’t know) and, eventually, I worked up to pillows and curtains for my own bedroom. In our previous homes, […]

A few weeks ago I was looking at West Elm’s new market and came across some adorable wooden drink coasters. They reminded of the logĀ slice ornaments I created for the One Item Project Challenge and, luckily, I happened to have some pieces of wood left over giving me the idea to create my own. Not […]

Holiday Countdown Planner {Week Six}

Holiday Countdown Series 2013- weekly plans and free printables to keep you on track.

A belated Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends! Can you believe December is just around the corner? It’s pretty hard not to notice when the yule log channels show up on TV, outdoor lights pop up more and more with each passing night, and the malls get crazy. I think I’ll try to stay away […]
