Memorial Day Weekend

Hello friends! If you are in the states, Happy Memorial Day. We have the day off today, which is so nice. I don't know what to do with all this unstructured time. I simultaneously want to do all the things and do nothing. I realized that I hadn't had a proper day off (not counting… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend

New Weekend Routines

Happy Sunday friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Yesterday was Husband's birthday.  I made him a special birthday dinner of baked chicken (coated in spicy breadcrumbs, yummm), Parmesan and spinach orzo, and a cake! Side note, I have not baked a cake in forever, so it came out dry and the frosting… Continue reading New Weekend Routines

Going Inward

Today is my second wedding anniversary.  Last year we celebrated our anniversary in Seattle.  This year we'd been planning on another anniversary trip, but...well, you know how that story ends. This is a Studio MME kit (she's since rebranded as Poplush Embroidery and has retired her skylines/landscapes kits.) I purchased this kit from the Elliot… Continue reading Going Inward

‘Tis the Season

Happy Thanksgiving friends! This month has flown away from me and I can hardly believe it.  Work has been very busy and stressful. Lots of deliverables, lots of those ~hard-earned~ lessons about project management as I continue working through this steep learning curve. Can't I just skip the part where I make mistakes so I… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season

Nesting Season Commences

Hello friends!  I hope all is well.  I've been keeping busy with work and trying to lean in to the new surroundings.  Moving always requires recalibrating your routine and schedule, and I've been thinking a lot lately about what goals I want to accomplish at work and with my creative pursuits.  The days are getting… Continue reading Nesting Season Commences

A Rambling Crafty Update

Hello friends! I don't know about you all, but it's been a crazy week.  I love my job and my projects, but often in consulting, everything just kind of falls on your desk at once and it's hard to balance everything sometimes. So anyway. Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments on my… Continue reading A Rambling Crafty Update

A Crafty, Restful Weekend

Good morning friends!  It's another Monday.  Last week wasn't great, and this whole month has been blah in general - I will blame it on winter.  The blah week culminated in my pulling my back on Friday - ARGH.  I always find it hilarious that I never pull my back while exercising, but it always happens… Continue reading A Crafty, Restful Weekend

2018 Recap

Good morning, friends! As I type this, I am drinking coffee, have a knitting project on my lap (I needed a break from the llama amigurumi torso) and am wondering when the Twilight Zone marathon is starting (edit: it's already started, YAY!)  I can hardly believe it is already New Year's Eve. What a year.… Continue reading 2018 Recap

Vacation Coziness

Good morning all! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I've been on vacation all week, and it's been AWESOME. I really needed the break.  If I'm being honest, this time between Christmas and New Year's is my favorite part of the holiday season.  It's still festive but there's less pressure about Christmas, and… Continue reading Vacation Coziness
