Listen. I know everyone thinks their kids are cute. I know they’re mostly just cute to us. But in the spirit of that (and the fact that I had zero desire to decorate the house for Christmas today & she got me into it), I’m going to record a few of our conversations […]
I have three or four must-see Christmas titles during the holidays. Love Actually, The Holiday, and The Family Stone are my absolute favorites. I’m not sure which I love the most, but each leaves me with a different feeling.
I leave Love Actually feeling hopeful and giddy, The Holiday feeling inspired and adventurous, and […]
Merry Christmas, friends…
from our wacky little family to yours.
Oh, and in case you want to know who you’re emailing/talking to/etc., here’s our amazing team! Back row from l to r: Lori, Matt, Shaunna (that’s me), Natalie. Second row: Julie, Kaitlyn, Adam, Amanda
I have been instructed by Amanda to tell you that she is in fact […]
There was just not much time this year. I’ll be getting our shop’s Christmas display pics up so you can see what we did in there this year (it really did look pretty magical!), but I just couldn’t pull it off before Christmas Day.
It all started with […]
I love every single part of the family get together’s during the Holidays.
Especially after the pomp and circumstance, when you all have a second to lay around on couches and in chairs. That’s when the magic happens.
There’s some sweet moments that happen during all that lounging and […]
To say this has been a year of blessings would be almost silly, in no way doing justice to the love, support, and community we’ve felt from you here and in our shop.

What is it about the holidays that just makes me more present?
Are you that way? I just find myself purposefully slower, savoring more, playing quickly and baking even quicker. I’m happier to put work aside to watch a movie or snuggle with some little person.
We were in such a […]
Good morning, lovelies!
I’m in official book-crunch mode, and have finished every single one of the 75 book projects (hear me roaring/squealing/beating my chest), and have moved on to writing the rest of the book.
Yes, that’s me: writing 40 tutorials in the last couple of days. My sweet mother-in-law is […]
While I know most folks are already breaking out the heart-shaped confetti, I simply could not begin a new year without sharing a few of my favorite Christmas memories.
There were loads of snuggles and squeezes…
The most lounge-y, restful vegging you ever did see.
Sometimes the simplest projects are the best.
I have truly done a 180 with our Christmas decorating…I used to have little figurines, and stuff in every room. And while I still love to add that special touch to most of our home, it’s much simpler.
It’s amazing what a sprig of […]
