Shower Curtain Poll

don’t worry, I spelled the title correctly! I meant poll, not pole, 🙂 as this is all about asking for help in deciding what I want to make for my shower curtain, not how to put it up! I just bought this fabric for my shower curtain, And It just arrived and is beautiful! (and…

Paneled Master Bedroom Wall

Today while shut in our apartment due to Osan Airbase being on lock-down in preparation for Typhoon Bolavin, Paul and I painted the “paneling” onto our back accent wall.I love the effect, and even in person it’s hard to believe it’s just paint! We took photo’s of the process along the way, so I will…

Success/Failure?

I’ve been stinking it up/productive here at home lately, so I’m not entirely sure what to say about what I’ve been up to. I started knitting Isaac a sweater 3 days ago, and I thought I had the gauge down, and it turns out not so much. In other news, the body of PAUL’S new…

Knitting Thoughts

I tried my hand at cable knitting for the first time the day before yesterday, and finished my sample yesterday, There are a couple of bigger loops that I am going to try to block out, but all in all I am happy with it. I think I am going to try to knit Isaac…

Anthro Knock Off Sweatshirt

Earlier I showed y’all a picture of this Anthropologie, shawl collared sweatshirt, I decided I wanted to make one for myself, but I wanted to start with one for Emmie, since I am doing back to school clothes for her right now, and I wanted to test the pattern on her first since it would…

Anthropologie Inspiration

EDIT: after writing this post, I had a complete change of plans come along, Emmie wanted to make an american girl doll dress, and Isaac wanted to make a hooded t-shirt out of fabric he picked at the LA fabric district – so no shawl collars or dresses for me today! (I like being flexible…

Potential {photo of the day}

We went shopping for school supplies today, and every year I am struck with a distinct sense of potential as I look into the cart and see all of those crisp and fresh supplies waiting to be used to help expand the minds of my not so little (anymore) ones.  I’m not looking forward to…

School Days!

First things first, I wanted to thank everyone for their votes during the open auditions for Project Run and Play! I can’t believe how many of you voted for me (I am deeply touched, and slightly embarrassed by the effort so many went to to vote for me! – I’m looking at you, everyone who…

Potty Talk {photo of the day}

So the bathrooms in Peru prepared me in unimaginable ways for Korea, as there are holes in the floor here too! I am an old hat at them since we hiked the Inca trail, but poor Miss Emmie was NOT prepared for what is lovingly called “the squatty potty” by the Americans around here (everywhere…

Eating at E-Mart {photo of the day}

We went out and about on the train the other day and visited a local store called E-mart (sort of like Korean Walmart). We walked around and perused the merchandise (I’m not going to be buying many clothes while here – I’m way to big and tall) and after a bit we found the food…
