This week in pictures and life

I know I’ve been slacking off a bit lately with Thanksgiving and such, so I thought I’d post an update with pictures! I decorated for Christmas, turned the office into my work space, and made a hat and scarf set for etsy! It’s actually for real people, and fits an adult, […]


I hope everyone had as great of a thanksgiving as I did. We went up to my in-laws and I brought Zucchini bread and chocolate cream pie for dessert. We chatted with friends and drank sparkling cider and went around the table and shared what we were thankful for. Looking back, […]


I recently launched a fan page for my etsy store, so if you’ve been there and like what you see, make sure you check it out and become a fan! Also, my sister in-law featured my article on The Box on her review site, the pickled wookiee.

I’ve joined with hundreds of people selling things on Etsy today. I’ve been sewing and preparing things to put up for a while,  and today I officially launched. I have three items up there right now, but I’ll be making more in the days and weeks to come. In the mean […]


Often times I find myself feeling like a little kid overwhelmed in a great big world – I don’t think my height helps. I realized lately that more often than not I’ve been living in fear. It’s paralyzing, it’s cowardly, and it’s no fun to live in. I’ve had it with […]


Every year I wear the same costume – a colonial dress my grandma and I made from a Felicity pattern about 4 years ago. I love the squared neckline and the lace accents and the blue flowered material, I almost feel like I’ve stepped back in time (except not really, because […]
