One of my favorite traditions at Christmas time is to make an ornament for each of my children. Originally we purchased ornaments each year, but over the last couple of years I’ve switched to giving them handmade ornaments, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back. I love the idea of these little bits of love moving on with my […]
If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a delightful and extremely active boy in your life. He’s curious and smart and if you ever turn your head for even a second he’s climbing the curtains or dumping flour all over the floor, or any other number of mess-producing activities.

Six more days to go! I’ve got to tell you, friends, this project has been much harder than I anticipated. I began designing and stitching the patterns in August and I’ve worked almost exclusively on this project since then. That’s a long, long time for me to work on a single project. (Admittedly, it’s not my only project I’ve been […]
