I think I have shown this self-published cookbook before on the blog. I am too lazy to search it right now, but it deserves another post, regardless. I am still off sugar (except for very special treats, like birthdays, sometimes...

Between sewing for dance shows (opening is tonight at ACMA!) I have been sewing doll clothes. They are very complicated—with lots of fussy details and complex shapes. I love it so much. Sewing for dance I often use stretch fabrics,...

We recently went to Kauai and was magical. We all love it there so much. We were staying on the south side, far away from the water damage and flooding from last month. This photo was taken at Shipwreck Beach....

I felt out of practice reading daily this winter. I always have 1 or 2 books I can go back to I haven't finished, but I wasn't reading a book that I was into. Part of it has to do...

Even though it's cold here and has been for a few weeks, my middle child wanted to stop by Zero Degrees to get this wacky sundae. It's not near us at all (Hillsboro) and it's a tiny little place, but...

I was getting ready for a costume design meeting this week and was wishing again that I could easily print all my pins from pinterest to show. There are so many reasons why having actual printed images is valuable to...

Lydia and I are studying Inca history but took a quick unrelated break after lunch to make some of these wands. The internet is full of tutorials for these. We watched this one. They are so easy and so fun....

Last week, before we had to start back to our crazy schedules, I took all three girls to the Portland Art Museum's Laika exhibit. We have to go back and see it again (kids under 17 are free!) it was...

We got away for a bit right after Christmas and went to Silver Falls. They have heated cabins we have stayed in before. You still have to cook outside and there is not plumbing inside (a short walk to a...

We are madly making holiday gifts around here, it's so fun to paint, glue, assemble, and pack. These unpainted wooden bowls were turned into little salt cellars with some pink Himalayan salt and a little spoon. They look nice unpainted,...

Here's some books we loved this year. I have grouped together Delia's and Lydia's first (they are 10 and 13) and Sadie's is the second group (15). Some of these titles are heavy. There is so much out there in...

The holidays came fast this year, I usually have this list up before now. This year, the girls seem much older. At 15, 13 and 10, they are into different stuff than previous years. My 10 year-old is still into...

We had a lovely Thanksgiving, but it seems like ages ago. I am in the middle of it sewing-wise, one show down and two more to go and then some time off to get ready for the holidays! There have...

These mini-pies were made by the girls a bit back and I made extra dough, so I am hoping they will make more for next week. They were delicious. We are having a small low-key Thanksgiving this year with my...

I have been making these on the weekends and eating them during the week. I originally made them to entice my daughters into eat salads more. They are cute and I think Instagram worthy, which a big deal with them....

In the evenings we have been streaming old movies. This is usually while I am putting my family to work hand-beading 22 tiaras for a ballet piece at The Portland Ballet (tickets are on sale now!) This is The Curse...

These are nutter butter cookies dipped in white candy melts. I saw this here (actually on instagram, but I can't find it now) and we had to try them. Candy melts are pretty horrible in every way and we can't...

It's a crazy costume shop around here. I am working on 3 shows right now— all happening before the holidays, so my whole family is helping. There are some very good beaders in the house, so that's outstanding because we...

I started and finished this in August when we were on vacation. I'm starting to amass a stack of small stitched items. I used to always finish them as I go, in either hoops as wall pieces, or broaches, or...

I have been getting crazy working on my dollhouse. There's a story there, about my dollhouse, but I will save that for later. It's never been finished and I am finishing it now, slowly, and it's so fun. I've had...

I got back from Iceland 2 nights ago. It was amazing trip although it was ill-timed—during the first week of all our activities, which require both parents and grammie for driving. When I am gone, it's pretty impossible. But it...

I've had two amazing drinks on heavy rotation this summer. Both were copied from ones I had bought, a Hibiscus Iced Tea from Tea Bar and a Lavender Matcha Milk Tea which was a special at Maplewood Cafe. My homemade...

I took down our needlework wall and have been working on this plant wall for a few months. It's still evolving. The wood panels came from craft warehouse and I glued various items to the wood to make little homes...

I'm not sure how hot it is here today. My phone says 102°. It feels about 115°. We have no AC. At all. Long story, but our windows don't easily take window units and central air is a big "thing"...

We learned about Paul Klee's puppets recently and they were new to me. They were mentioned only in passing, in a video or a book, I can't remember which, but he made them for his son. I am completely obsedssed...
