glow’s 5th birthday breakfast in bed

I think I’m going to get kicked out of birthday breakfast duty because Ben totally knocked it out of the park for Glow’s 5th birthday. I was at the Michaels Makers Summit on her birthday, (we celebrated right before I left) and based on what Ben produced, I think he should be taking over blog duties. Clearly, you can see that Glow very much loved her little spread. Of course, her favorite part was Yoda made from a pear. A ...


michaels makers summit at carmel valley ranch

I had no clue how the Michaels team would top last year’s summit, but they certainly did. The backdrop this year was at the gorgeous Carmel Valley Ranch, and I was not prepared for how amazing it was all going to be.

Immediately, I felt a little ...

This is my first go at a jumpsuit and I’d like to make another, but with a ...

I made a poster and got an engineering print of it made at a local copy shop, picked up some multi-colored balloons from Michaels and taped them all around the bed (the packaging said nothing about mustache faces on them, but we rolled with it), and ...



This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness… I had a great time at this year’s Michaels Makers Summit. There’s so much to share from it, so stay tuned for a post coming soon. Pinned this cute outfit, but especially love the unique basket bag. If you’re wear an 8 in shoes, please get these vintage wooden heels. I ordered Maryanne Moodie’s book, On the Loom: A Modern Weaver’s Guide, and can’t wait for it to come in. Ben and I have ...
