Aloha! We just got back from an amazing 8 days on Kaua'i. Pete and I went for our honeymoon 18 years ago and it's changed, but not that much. At that time, I never would have thought I'd be back...

I made mounted more postcards on wooden blocks for a gift. These cards are illustrated by the lovely and talented Emily Martin and look so sweet stacked up together. They are double-sided, like the first set I made. I used...

I finished the Stopover Sweater! I'm so happy I did this KAL. I hope to do more KALs—it was very motivating. This is blocked and ready to wear. It grew a whole bunch after blocking, which I was told it...

We pass by a cafe almost everyday called Honey Toast Cafe. They serve honey toast. Very straightforward. They serve other tasty items as well, but it's the honey toast we go in for. I had never heard of this dessert...

I am deep into bang out a sweater, my first KAL and my first sweater knitted in the round, bottom-up with a yoke. I have done a few top-downs, but not a bottom-up. I was successfully able to join the...

We have been making some more charms around here. These were made for valentine's day to give away. The larger hearts were made into magnets or brooches. I love making these, they are really relaxing. Sometimes. Sometimes, they are maddening,...

I made this arrangement last month. I forgot how pretty it was. I am trying to do at least one arrangement a month, if not every two weeks, using Trader Joe's flowers, or items from the yard. So pleasing. This...

I am thrilled to be starting a knitalong as of today. It's Bang Out a Sweater Knitalong by my two favorite knitting people in the whole world—Kay and Ann from Mason-Dixon knitting. It's my first KAL and I am starting...

I've been making onigirazu lately and can't seem to get enough of them. They are perfect for leftovers. I know they were a thing a bit back, so the internet and a friend in-the-know tells me, but I only just...

I made this salad as a side dish to grilled sandwiches this week—the girls weren't into it, but Pete and I devoured it. I love caraway seeds and how they smell when they are toasting. The recipe I used was...

Theses polymer clay charms were made sometime in the last 3 weeks. I tried using a little glitter on the macarons and it just made them look dirty. They are also a little too thick, but I still love them....

I am still going through my craft room, slowly, making gifts and projects from supplies I already have. I have so many "special" items tucked away. I don't have enough wall space to show all the framed art I have...

I'm not sure how I ended up watching the floral arrangement class on Skillshare. I was thinking about flowers I needed for an upcoming party, had just bought a beautiful arrangement for Grammie for Thanksgiving, and thought "I could do...

I have been collecting vintage Christmas bits and bobs for a long time now. A few years ago, I tried on a new craft/art mantra— use it. I tend to squirrel away precious items and then I don't use them,...

I packed up some of the charms I made and tucked into gift boxes. Now I can't stop with the buckteeth. I'm trying to control myself. These designs were all from various tutorials online. So much fun. I did learn...

I stitched these little gifts last weekend. They are framed in 3" hoops. I didn't stitch them in this size hoop though, it's too small to work with. To finish them, I glue a felt circle on the back. Then...
