Current Pincushion Situation

Moving my sewing stuff out of the guest room closet and into the master bedroom has been a game changer! Even more than moving the noise further away from the nursery, I think having natural light and cute storage has made the biggest difference. I was so afraid of clutter driving me crazy that I’m… Continue reading Current Pincushion Situation

Birchboxes Everywhere

I’ve been a loyal Birchbox subscriber since 2012, and I still love using up the sample sizes of beauty products I would never think to pick up by myself… and even though I’ve been paying $10/month over the past few years, having a subscription has drastically cut down on my impulse buys at the drugstore… Continue reading Birchboxes Everywhere

Time for an update!

Project Pinterest: Vinegar + Dish Soap = Clean Shower

You may remember my previous experience with vinegar – lackluster to say the least, and I questioned Pinterest’s claim that vinegar is the cure-all for every little thing.  But now, I’m a believer.  Vinegar really can clean! This pin claims that a combination of vinegar and dish soap cleans the shower better than any store-bought… Continue reading Project Pinterest: Vinegar + Dish Soap = Clean Shower

Vintage Recipe Box + Index Cards

One little line mentioned on the Oh, Fransson! blog gave me this idea for organizing and tracking my quilt projects. “Another finished quilt. Another WIP card off the wall! (Yes, I really do have a bunch of index cards on my wall.)” I’ve been looking for some kind of way to keep track of my works… Continue reading Vintage Recipe Box + Index Cards

A Few of My Favorite Things: May Books

I love my new May Book! I’ve seen a lot of bloggers raving about these customizable organizers, but honestly I thought they would be too expensive.  I decided to splurge on myself for this year’s planner…. and discovered it wasn’t much of a splurge at all!  Durable canvas, hand-sewn binding, with tons of options for… Continue reading A Few of My Favorite Things: May Books
