best of 2011

Are you tired of annual round-ups yet? Well, here’s my take on our year in review….

Although blog writiing wasn’t consistent for me in 2011, I’m loving getting back into the swing of creating these last few months. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about 2012 and my plans and goals for both my family and creative life — who doesn’t do some goal setting at the start of the new year, right? I guess the hard part is keeping track and sticking to them! I’m looking forward to a fresh start, are you?

september round-up: owl-be-with-you

So I’m a little behind with my September roundup post, but life just gets in the way of posting some days. I know you know what I mean!

To celebrate Fall, I’m still loving all-things Owl, and added my tribute to the OhCanada Etsy team Treasury Challenge for October. Last month, my fingerless gloves were featured in the winning treasury challenge and even made it to the Etsy front page — my first! Isn’t that a hoot?!

P.S. have you discovered habit blog yet? I’m totally loving and being inspired by these women every day!

august roundup: back-to-school retro picks

Last day of August thoughts are back-to-school ones, as I get K (and the rest of us) prepared for her first day back to class next week.

:: getting back the early bedtimes (for all of us!)
:: getting used to thinking about, preparing for and actually packing lunches 5 days a week
:: getting back to thinking that my girls are growing up way too fast and wishing we could slow it all down!

A roundup of some back-to-school items with a vintage, retro flare that I’m coveting right now.
