I’ve been working in two worlds all week. On the one side it’s business as usual: blog projects, freelance work, Pinterest obsessions. On the other side is a completely new venture that I can’t wait to share with you. I’m fiddling with a new logo, researching website “stuff”, filling a secret Pinterest board with tons […]

worth 1000 words: marbles on the table

I believe this week’s slightly crazy tilt is a perfect match for the Marbelous table. Do you see all the marble channels? I just love the humorous and unusual designs from Collection Ontwerp.

Another week has past. I don’t feel like i have much to show for it – and I think that’s just the beginning of how Fall and Winter always feel for me. Between the added school and extra-curriculars schedule, and the weather, things fly by without my knowledge. Somehow in the summer I don’t stress […]

In my dream home with the endless budget, there is an old-fashioned attic painted entirely in white with fancy dormers, lots of play space, and a couple of these leather swings by Fritz Hansen & Louis Vuitton.

I’m currently sitting in the middle of Northern Wisconsin getting cozy with Fall, the forest, a big bike race called the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, and vegging out with my little family. It’s our annual Fall “vacation”, and we have all these silly little routines that I love to death. From where we eat, to […]

worth 1000 words: a castle & a concrete printer

I really want to meet this man, his 3D printer, and his 3D printed castle. What do you think it would cost to “print” one of these in our backyard? Read more about it in my local paper, the Star Tribune, or the more detailed 3Ders.

Well, folks, Birdie made it through the first week of school. In one piece, without any major tantrums, or forgotten lunches. And it sounds like she only ran around trying to kiss the boys twice. I guess that’s an acceptable amount in her eyes, but I’m not sure the boys would agree. I feel like I […]

I’m trying to embrace Fall, but not having much luck. Maybe this Twilight Fox Print from Little Paper Planes will help?

School starts next week, and my little baby will officially be a big kid attending Kindergarten. In so many ways I am so not ready. But the universe has decided to throw me a couple of curve balls that are ensuring that I will find a way to be ready. As one opportunity ends, a […]

Heh. My husband would probably hate this, but I think it’s absolutely positively hilarious. Would your baby daddy wear one? Would you? Corripapa design concept via Gumdesign.

Sometimes something happens and your whole view of your little world shifts: you realize how lucky you really are, in comparison to all the crap that happens out there. I’m ending this week in a bittersweet but grateful mood. I’m happy for my little family, my little career, and the sunshine afternoons with the sweet […]

worth 1000 words: smart girl

I was talking with one of the older dancers at Birdie’s dance school today, and she told me how impressed she was with my little girl at the spring recital. She told Birdie: “You’re small, but you’re smart.”. And then she heard Birdie repeating later: “I’m small, but I’m smart.” That’s right sweet child, and […]

Parents of 5 year olds, I’m at my wit’s end. My usually confidence, ebullient, social little girl is suddenly suffering from the worst case of separation anxiety. She claims she wants to spend all of her time with me (which can’t possibly be true) and spent the first part of dance camp today (at her favorite […]

I could really use a little bit of the peace and solitude this midnight forest offers up. See Sonia Poli and more at All About Paper Cutting.

What a strange week it’s been.  I spent a large chunk of it trying to create the perfect photoshoot filled with cherries, lemonade, Indian colors, and French rustic touches. It was a blast. I’ll tell you more about that some other day. Plus,I  finished up some logo sketches for a new client, and drew aardvarks […]
