Around the house


right now... in this house....

we are enjoying our outdoor spaces regularly (finally)...


little girls are learning how to play games together harmoniously (even if they make up their own rules)...


a certain desk is once again a disaster...


this mother is enjoying her various trophies from the holiday...


working on a new stamp... from geninne's book "making an impression"...


constantly looking at this pile of fabric waiting to become blankets for the little girls...


noticing how this stack of firewood is finally remaining constant....


anticipating this remodel finally nearing completion...


a little miss pesto the farm kitty got herself a collar with a bell (hopefully a warning for our feathered flying friends... it seems to be working!!)...



this post is the first to have photos uploaded from my iphone... because a certain silly woman left her camera in the back of a car that her husband took to the airport... it should be back this weekend though... she is excited to see them both.

I have a bathroom that is torn apart right now so I can really appreciate a remodel that is done and looks so pretty.

I've been inspired by your stamp making, to try to learn to do it myself. I'm surprised at how easy the actual carving is. It's making the artwork that's difficult. (I am not an artist.) I don't think I ever would have thought to try it if I hadn't seen it here - so thank you! xo

tracey- thank you! it still has a way too go... and the really frustrating part is that it is going to look almost exactly the same as it did before but there are a few changes that have been made that i will really enjoy :)

meghann- i'm so honored to have inspired you to start! it is so fun, and so much easier than it seems. i struggle with the designs as well actually. most of my stamps have come from geninne's book, and any "originals" i looked online for inspiration... which really helps me... i need somewhere to start from... i can't create it all from nothing out of my own head.

nichole- thank you :) i enjoy seeing snippets of your world as well!

I think I will have to take a look at that book. I've had it on my wish list ever since I saw it here; maybe next time I have a little extra money I'll get a copy.
I've been working on a Flaming Chalice stamp to give to our minister when she leaves for her next congregation in a few weeks. Probably a little over-ambitious for a first stamp but I always seem to be working a bit above my pay grade in these things! xo
