We had such big plans for 2020… a trip to Japan that our kids have been working and saving for over a year now (it was going to be our first real family vacay!), a homeschool field trip to DC, several gigs and conferences I had are canceled, and the kids are severely missing their […]
Handmade with JOANN
I have HUGE news I’ve been keeping since the beginning of the year… JOANN chose me as a Handmade Hero! Pinch me (no wait, don’t…I don’t want to wake up). I can’t even begin to tell you how humbled and honored I am to have been asked to be featured in their handmade with JOANN […]

One day I would love to know what it feels like to put my vacuum away. Vacuums should be designed to look like a decor accessory, because mine is always out…and yet, my floors never stay clean for longer than a few hours a day. I’m serious, I rotate the vacuum between rooms, one day […]
