I’m chuckling a bit at my last post. I’m not usually one to overburden myself, and I generally settle into a nice rhythm of craftiness, laziness, and quality family time during the holidays. Not this year! I decided it’d be fun to have this be the year of handmade Christmas gifts, which did turn out … More Why I need a vacation after Christmas vacation!
So, here’s the thing about me and creativity: I have long been certain and professed openly that I don’t have any.

I meant to say last time that yes, those are my lilies up there! I know it’s full-blown summer when they bloom; they’re my favorite, and that bright yellow color, especially, makes me seriously giddy. I love that set of bulbs, specifically, because I planted them three summers ago when we were putting our old … More Busy, busy bee
