Time and time again I’m reminded of the beauty in simplicity. Don’t get me wrong – I love a complex, gorgeous, time-consuming project as much as the next girl….but those aren’t the ones that I end up coming back to over and over again. I’m much more likely to return to a simple, sweet,

If you knew me in person you would know that I am terrible at keeping secrets…..terrible may even be an
Once upon a time, a little inkling of an idea entered my mind. The idea was full of promise, but also filled with challenges. As time passed, I continued to come back to the idea over and over again. It was an idea I simply couldn’t ignore. I’m not usually one to write such a demanding pattern….I
