I had my first item featured on the twitter of MyMom'sbasement.

It was for their handmade holiday hotlist! Very exciting.

Check out their etsy shop here. Lots of fun handmade jewelry and prints. It feels great to be connecting with the handmade community.

Out on a limb.

I have officially opened my first etsy store.! I am very excited to see where this will go. I am starting with some small creations and hopefully I will find my nitch in the handmade world eventually!

I also have decided to sign up for Free People's Winter Craft Shop! I am excited to create a gift for someone else, who I don't even know, just to make them smile.... This will be neat! What a great way to get my feet wet in the crafting world. woo-hoo, I am excited!

New Season New Home

So, Zach and I have finally moved into our first home! :) Well not technically ours...we rent, but it's still great!

I will add some photos soon. But right now we are still in unpacking mode.

Let me tell you, we have a LOT of stuff! It doesn't help that I am an artist and have way too many supplies and then on top of that have a ton of my work from college and then all of our books. We have soo many books.

This is a great test for the future. Our future bought home, we will need at least 3 bedrooms! One that can be solely dedicated to my art and books.

Also we need much more closet space - 2 total closets (no coat closet, and no linen closet) is not enough.

But we are learning and it is so great that the inside is almost all brand new. The whole house was gutted and redone with new drywall, cabinets, bathroom fixtures, everything. It is great. And our little Boston has a fenced backyard, and we have a great big deck to entertain...all we need are some chairs. Above everything else, I have a 5 minute commute to work. Literally. This is a great change from the varying times of 30 mins. to 1 hr and 30 mins. that it took me in the past.

All in all, home sweet home.

six months and counting

6 months down, 60 years to go! we have enjoyed our lives together so far and can't wait for what is to come. i am hoping that this can become a way to share what is going on in our lives and also sort of a creative side project for myself.

we are beginning to reveal the simple joys of life, discovering how we should be caring for God's earth and learning how to create a heaven on earth for others.

this may sound cheesy, but some of that comes in the creative minds and designs of others. little things like a small clay flower pot, an abstract painting, or a simple idea of how to recycle something creates inspiration and helps make life a little more enjoyable. what else can make those things better? experiencing these things with others...
