linen jumpsuit

I started making this linen jumpsuit at the end of July for a wedding, but I didn’t have time to finish it until a couple weeks ago.

My littlest love turned five last week and we celebrated with a simple birthday party. Her requests were balloons, drawing party, and a scooter. Thus, it was a Friday night party in our bedroom.

weaving and macrame love

by maryann moodie by cold picnic by emily katz It took me awhile to try loom weaving (I wanted to make sure I really liked the looks of it and not because it was trendy), but once I did, I fell in love. I started doing macrame a few months ago, and fell in love with that too. Yep, they are both big trends in the craft world right now, but I love the texture in them and the different ...
