Ten Things That Defined This Decade In My Life + Business

    1. All of the things that made me weird growing up are now the things that make our life and business. I was the kid making up plays, gathering the neighbors, writing poetry under a tree (no one needs to read those), writing songs, designing clothing and randomly calling the airlines to see how much it would cost to fly to California. Being a creative kid in a small rural town can be hard. Sports were king and …

Hot Toddy Kits | What We Give Our Neighbors at Christmas

  We are surrounded by some pretty incredible neighbors but with all of the acreage between our homes, you have to go out of your way to connect and to see one another. That is probably why we are all out here and I would guess that most of us out here like having that privacy. Can you say introverts unite? I also think we are so lucky to have six incredible families that surround us that we get to …

This year I am wrapping gifts in vintage French linens but you could also use yardage of any fabric you have on hand or use vintage linens. Vintage napkins are very generous in size and will be large enough for most small to medium sized gifts. I wanted to share my sources for the gift wrap materials I used in our latest Holiday …

Live Tomorrow! Less is More | Watercolor Animals with Lexi Grenzer

A life that is lived is what I saw when I was first introduced to Lexi Grenzer. I saw an artist capturing her day to day life through watercolors, a teacher finding ways to make painting and creativity approachable, a woman connecting always with her family and the world around her through good foods, home and gathering. Her love of life is what first captured my attention about her. I am so thankful that Lexi said yes and that we …
