1280x1024_Nobly dared

  These past few weeks have been a little insane for me – in the best way possible. I’d been scheming and dreaming away to start designing more patterns and things for the home – and with a little courage and work I released my very first pattern collection. Hubby and I always dreamed of […]

great books for summer fun

Hi friends! We made it to France alive. Alive being the key word here. Ha. I was afraid of the flight with 3 girls, but it was actually a breeze. I was going to scream victory….until I realized that the hardest part of this trip is actually to deal with 3 jet-lagged little girls on […]

beautiful covers and great books

They often repeat themselves in our conversations because, the truth is, we love a little craziness. We could, like many people do, say “ha, what’s the point, these dreams will never happen”, brush them off to the […]

{Inspiration} Words for strangers


Ready for a little inspiration today? A few of days ago I was going through my favorite blogs and some pictures on Designskool caught my attention. These were pictures of little friendly notes on tags that were attached in strange places. Places where you really didn’t expect them. Someone’s bike. A wire fence. “Call your […]

When I grow up


When I first saw this poster on A Vintage Poster, I thought, maybe I should get it for my lovely girls #1. But then I thought, heck, I’m just gonna get it for myself. Because it’s always good to think about your dreams when you “grow up”. No matter how old you are. Oh, and […]
