Happy New Year, everyone! I love that January 1st brings with it the feeling of a fresh start. I can't even tell you how excited I am for 2015. Though 2014 was crazy, I think 2015 is going to be even crazier - in all the best ways! Lots of life stuff happened this year.… Continue reading Here’s to 2015!
Read This If You Want To Take Great Photographs. Awesome title, right?! I've been meaning to write one more post in the SOS Photography series, but it's been a busy month with my parents in town. Not only have we been tackling projects like reupholstering an ottoman, but we've also been making headway on our kitchen… Continue reading Photography: Composition
What a great month for me to run an SOS Photography series. It seems photography has been on so many others' minds as well! I mentioned Jenny of Cashmerette's tips earlier in this series, and then this week I've seen posts from Oonabaloona suggesting we have fun and get low with our shots and Heather Lou of Closet… Continue reading Photography: Posing for the Camera
If I'm going to do an SOS series on photography, it's hard not to talk about the behind-the-scenes gear. We can try to have more fun in the right lighting when we take our blog photos, but we have to take them with something. The camera gear you use is a matter of both budget and preference. I… Continue reading Photography: Camera Gear
I have to admit that I've had very little time this week to think about this week's SOS: Photography post. I was so motivated last week when I posted about smiling for the camera, but then life got in the way this week. So, this tip came together quickly through a conversation with my husband last… Continue reading Photography: Lighting
Last night I was reading a few pages in the baby book What's Going on in There?: How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life. I started it ages ago, but these days I only seem to be able to read about three pages a day! The few pages in question… Continue reading Have fun when you take those blog photos! Or, flex that orbicularis oculi!
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm pleased to announce that my husband and I welcomed a darling daughter into the world last week. Yes, despite the fact that the vote was for a boy by a small majority, 14 to 11, she turned out to be a little girl! I guess I'll be needing to finish that… Continue reading It’s a Girl! // Resewlution: Keep Sewing with a Little One
Last week I introduced my desire to get started on my new year's sewing resolutions, or "resewlutions" if you will, right away before I'd lost that new year, clean slate feeling (and before the impending arrival of the little one, which I'm sure is going to slow things down around here!). I was so impressed… Continue reading Resewlution: Connect with the Seattle Sewing Community
Okay, so we're just about two weeks into 2014. How's everyone doing getting started on their new year's sewing resolutions? Or, should I say, "resewlutions"?! Getting a good first tackle on those resewlutions is something I want to focus on this month. I'm throwing it into the Science of Sewing thing I started last year since… Continue reading Resewlutions
It's the last week full week in April, which makes this my last post on Cotton. For now. There's so much to learn about this versatile fabric that it's hard to imagine ever truly having a last post about it. This week I wanted to focus on one of the final steps in the making… Continue reading Cotton: Narrow Machine Hem
