Last week I hinted at something coming from Pattern Anthology. Well today’s a bit of a sneak peek! Pattern Anthology made a video so you could get to know us a bit. We’d really love if you’d watch and share it with your friends! Oh, and P.S. There’s going to be a special pre-sale price [...]
I often have a hard time answering the question, “What do you do?”
I do many things. And I love the things I do. I primarily stay home with my kids. However, I also blog, I design sewing patterns for my own label, I run a currated pattern shop, I design for Pattern Anthology… But to the average person, none of those answers make much sense. If I share any of those answers I usually hear either, “oh how fun” or “how did you start doing that?” And usually theirs an air of confusion. But, those are the things I do.
And so I had a difficult time with my recent business cards. How does one put all that on a card?
Friends, I can’t tell you how exciting it was to write that. One room in my home that was touched by this remodel is complete. I wasn’t sure that would happen, ever. This remodel is two steps forward, one step back but we’re almost to the point where we can start unpacking everything!
I couldn’t be more thrilled with the powder room. I changed everything. Nothing that was there has stayed. New floor, paint, toilet, vanity, faucet, mirror and lights. But here’s the sad part. No before pictures. I know. I’m losing my blogger card for that one. But I’ve put together a mishmash of random internet photos to show you just how different it really is now.
We bought a house! It’s time to renovate and decorate. Come see what we’re doing in the powder room with this amazing new Delta Touch20 faucet. It’s the smart phone of the faucet world!
I feel like this blog gets neglected a lot. I rarely show off what I'm making anymore. I think things will slow down a little soon and I'll be able to write a little more. As I alluded to yesterday, I'm working on some big changes at Go To Patterns. I'll share those next week [...]
My kids haven’t been watching much TV lately but they play a lot of games on the ipad or their old leapsters. Right now they’re really into playing Life on the ipad. That was one of my favorite games as a kid, so I get it. Fun game. But is it so great that you should play it two hours a day? No, not really. Behold: the power of the screen time ticket! Give your kids tickets to use for screen time (ipad, video games, TV) to limit how much time they spend watching a screen during leisure time. Free printable tickets!
I love that color is trendy right now. Cheerful Spring colors are so much fun, especially if you live somewhere where winter is long and dark. It's easy to brighten your living space with just a couple pops of color. Fight your desire to pick out a couple floral pillows and call it good! 1. [...]
As Easter approaches I’ve been considering a table setting for an Easter Brunch. The problem is, I don’t usually do fancy. Table settings and centerpieces aren’t something I think about often. So I made a mock Easter table and now I need your help!
