Here’s a peak at what’s new.
It’s winter time, which for the past few years means it’s knitting time. Something about the cold dreary outdoors makes me pick up my knitting needles and go to town. The thing that makes this winter different than the rest is that I didn’t stop at 1 or 2 scarves. No, I got downright obsessed and have made over 10 so far. I made one cowl / infinity scarf out of soft pink alpaca yarn and I was hooked. Since then I’ve been buying all different kinds of yarn and trying out different sizes of needles to get a little variety.
What has your crafting obsession been lately? Or any new winter hobbies?
I’m excited to announce that iPhone cases & cards from my Etsy shop are now available at Gleeful Peacock Mercantile in Tulsa! Their grand opening was this past weekend and they’re now open Tuesday – Friday 11am – 6pm, and Saturdays from noon – 5pm. So if you’re in the Tulsa area, go check it out!
Here’s some of the amazing handmade goodies you’ll find there:

I’m happy to announce I am now selling card + envelope sets on my Etsy store. The new additions will also be available at the Holiday Marketplace in November – including a lineup of holiday cards.
Here’s a peek at the new cards.
Today it’s only 60 degrees! And it’s raining. That’s a far cry from the sunny 110+ weather we’ve had here in OK recently. I believe summer is over and fall is officially here, or at least near…
Homemade caramel apples are a fall must – so easy to make and so delicious.
Poor Eber, he loves a brisk fall morning to run and play like a mad dog, but he’s nursing an injured paw. Paws unfortunately take a long time to heal.
With a new season comes the urge to reorganize & redecorate. Even in our last house, my desk has always been facing a window. The other day I had just had enough and needed a change.
And of course, this blank wall has to be decorated.
I know, I know, those cork boards look dumb all clean and unused. But I have been far too busy to tack anything up there since I put this up. Side note : you know you’ve been on the internet too much when you describe your cork boards to your husband as “pinterest boards, but real”.
Want to see a super quick before & after?
I thought so.
Before: A pair of matching frames with water damaged prints from the thrift store.
After: Matching cork boards with weathered white frames.
Bam. That’s my kind of DIY project.
I have some exciting projects in the works – both design related and for my Etsy store. There’s also a craft fair coming up in November that I will have a booth in. Here’s a couple teasers.
I’m excited to say I’m now selling printable invitations & cards at my Etsy store!
