Happy Birthday Katy! {and my Lille Dress}

I know I have been insanely quiet around here, so much has been going on, I just haven’t had time to post (and frankly my computer has pretty much not been unpacked in weeks.) We have left Korea, fit in a Hawaiian vacation as a stop over on our way to the US, and spending…

A Witch and a Plague Doctor {Halloween 2014}

    Since my mom was visiting, I made her a Halloween costume too! Because she grew up in Africa, she has never had a real Halloween costume, so it was fun making her one! She wore the witches hat that went with Emmie’s costume last year, and was a medieval style witch. I made…

Halloween Decor {just a couple years late part two}

If you didn’t see it, here is my last post, in which I paper mache’d some skulls for my front entry way, I used the same technique for my mummy, head, with just a few added details. Here is my mummy head… Pretty scary/awesome right? My kids named it Nana as a joke (not so…

Halloween Decor {just a couple of years late}

I know I am a bad blogger, we have been so busy lately I haven’t even cared! We have my mom in town right now, which has been so fun, and literally as she flew in to Korea to meet us, we were flying from Hong Kong, back to Korea, from an amazing whirlwind trip…

Painted Bedside Tables

  The last time I was in the US, I was shopping on websites like Shoppok and found 2 bedside tables for only $12 a piece, (even though I didn’t live anywhere near the seller, and couldn’t take them back to Korea with me,) I just couldn’t fathom leaving them there when they spoke to…

A Tale of Two Quilts {pinspired}

I have been a little quiet around here, because I have been trying to get some stuff done, before I go out of town for a couple of weeks (I’m leaving for the USA to go see my nephew tomorrow!) so real world issues have taken over my blogging time 🙂 I have Korean souvenirs…

Guest Post From My Mom! {pattern weights}

My mom made some really great pattern weights a little while ago as presents, and I LOVE them (and use them all the time.) Anyway, I asked her if she would share the secret to her fabric weights here on the blog, and she very kindly sent me photos of the whole process!  So here’s…

I have fallen off the planet!

So I may have not fallen off the planet, but I have TRAVELED around the planet! I just got back a few days ago from an eleven day trip to the states! I didn’t even have enough time to be jet lagged, so I saved it all up and am twice as jet lagged now!…

Four Generations {photo of the day}

We have been home for a week now, and I still feel wiped out from the trip! We were traveling for more then 24 hours by the time we got back from Peru to the house, and I wasn’t feeling amazing for a few days from a migraine that I had gotten our last full…

Many Happy Returns of the Day!

Today has never been a day that has stood out to me as the occasion on which a little groundhog decides how much more winter there is; my whole life, today has stood out to me as the birthday of a most singular lady.  When I was a little girl, we could say anything and my mom…
