In honor of the upcoming holiday season, I’m bringing two of my favorite makes from last year to the blog. I meant to write these pieces up last year as some of my first blog posts (can you believe it’s already been almost a year?!?!). But in the craziness that is the post-holiday period, they
Okay y’all. I’ve given you ideas about small crafts that you could make for other people. I’ve told you what books to buy for everyone (including yourself!). And today?

Okay, y’all. You’d better appreciate today’s post, because I had to interrupt my second watch-through of Stranger Things 2 to write it! Seriously, I’m obsessed, and I am definitely in love with Steve. No spoilers, but I didn’t love his character last season and this season he melted my heart! Anyways, why you’re really here
Did you guys see that a brand new expansion pack for the Kalle Shirtdress came out yesterday?!?!?! I’ve been thinking for months that I would love to add sleeves to some fall Kalles. I’m so excited to get to making some amazing plaid shirts — maybe. If I feel like plaid matching, that is. In
It’s been hard not to wear my flannel Lola pants every day. My extreme need for cozy pants this fall has been based on a few things. One, I work in an archive. That means my office is constantly, like, 62 degrees to make sure our materials are stable, and that is so cold, y’all.
I’m kind of on a wall hanging kick over here. It’s taken me a long time to really set up my living room. Just as I finished unpacking all the boxes in it, our service elevator broke. After a few weeks, it was finally fixed, so I finally ordered my sofa and had it delivered!
