So, as you can see, I've made some changes here on the blog. I've been hesitant, for obvious reasons, but when I looked at the page there was so much that wasn't true anymore. Inspired by the fall, a transformation seemed in order. I hope it pleases :)

And for those of you waiting to hear about the family experiment, it was a bust. But that's okay. It was my own fault. I wasn't prepared enough. I promise to give a full report when it actually happens. In the meantime, I will give you a hint. It involves the question, how many "necessities" can we live with out for a week? Scary? I know.

We have been busy making things, which you all know is a favorite pastime.

pumpkin butter
bundt cakes
Wee Folk Felt Dolls inspired by this post
 our first ever corn husk dolls
 leaf piles
more bundt cakes
and pumpkin puree

See, loads of fun! It really has been quite wonderful. I love doing things like this as a family. Speaking of family, I wanted to share my sister-in-law's, sister-in-law (who is also my dear friend) Liz's etsy shop, While PJ sleeps! She is a new mama and an incredible artist. She has been making these unbelievable pictures using paint sample swatches from the hardware store! Her work is amazing so please check out her shop and spread the word. 

Lots of Love :)


  1. Only in CO could you be in a leaf pile with no shirt on. I love living here.

  2. I have tons of leaves in my yard...anyone interested in coming to Seattle!

    I love all the projects. You are very busy; is that a sign of nesting? Love you, xoxo

  3. Okay, first I would like to compliment you for being such an inspiring parent who always thinks outside of the box and who makes it all look so easy. Next, I would like to COMPLAIN to you for being such an inspiring parent who always thinks outside of the box and who makes it all look so damn easy!!! Sheesh! I feel like such a slacker!


  4. The blog looks so beautiful as always, I am so happy when I see you in this space! I love everything you have been up to, just wishing we were neighbors! xoxo

  5. How beautiful your blog is! How beautiful your family is! Thank You!
