madelocalmonth: COLOR

         #madelocalmonth day 8: what’s my favorite color? ALL OF THEM! 🌈 but especially purple. 💜 I can’t resist the urge to make everything purple. Or violet, lilac, periwinkle, raspberry, mauve, maroon, lavender, heliotrope, grape, orchid, fuchsia, magenta, eggplant, amethyst, indigo, thistle, plum, every possible hue and shade of purple. Even my kids are dressed in purple, haha!

Introducing our brand-new Natural Birch Wood Ornaments!

I'm so excited to share these brand-new ornaments! They're just finished this week and I think they came out beautifully! We already have them hanging up in our windows at home.

You can check them out on my website!We also have lots of other beautiful goodies to keep in mind for the coming holiday season (gorgeous hand-printed scarves are so perfect for this time of year!), and will be adding more special new products...

I’m grateful to be juggling creative work and parenting at the same time, even when it’s hard to fit it all in. My favorite parts of the day are: -drinking milky coffee in the shower. -quiet craft time with Hattie while Sadie takes a nap. -outings with the girls: children’s museum, farmer’s market, zoo,...
