She Did It Again

Chandler of Anagram Press is so amazingly talented. She just released another broadside and I ordered this one immediately. I love the image, the colors, the quote. Can’t wait to hang it up in my office so I can see it everyday. More info here, and you can order one here.

Got Time?

We were at our friend Kim and Chris’s house the other night and spotted her new, awesome clock! It’s similar to this one, but dark silver, rather than orange. (On a side note, someday I’m going to post about Kim’s house because it’s absolutely amazing!!!) Anyway, she found this fabulous clock on Etsy shop All15Designs. […]

Second Birthday Party

This weekend was Daughter’s second birthday, so we had a party! We chose a flower theme, maybe with the distant hope that there would be tulips coming up? But no, we got another dumping of snow last week, so there were still a few inches of the white stuff on the big day. If nothing […]

Holiday Fabric Wine Bags

Happy Halloween (a few hours late)

It was a fun Halloween. We dressed up Daughter (flower) and Dog (bumblebee) and handed out candy. To six kids. Just six! We bought six bags. You do the math. Oh well. Guess that’s why we bought our personal favorites. Oops. Also – the Yoga Bag Giveaway is complete…. (drumroll, please)… Jenna Z, you were […]

Yoga Bag Giveaway!

photo by Melissa of The Linden Tree My favorite little shop in South Minneapolis, The Linden Tree, asked me to make some Yoga Bags to sell a few weeks ago. I took the challenge, figured out a pattern, and brought a half-dozen to the shop a week later. I’ll be adding a few more to […]

The Jenny Bag

Introducing, the Jenny Bag! I originally made this bag for a coworker named Jenny. She knew I was sewing like crazy and asked for a simple bag to hold just her wallet, iPhone and chapstick. She wanted something to sling across her body so she could be hands free when chasing her three boys, walking […]


Made from 100% cotton, they’re 16 inches square. And they’re going in the shop this week. Patterned fabric on one solid, solid on the other. You need a new set this fall, don’t you?
