block by block

some days i can't get much accomplished, being a stay at home mom is both wonderful and maddening at the same time. when oliver is crabby, every minute of every nap is essential to getting things done, whether i need to work or try to make a dent in the never-ending pile of laundry. i've had to really learn to be efficient (a friend told me to imagine how much we could get done without a baby!) and i'm not only freelancing but also making time to work on projects that really inspire and excite me. i love this print not only for the great but simple quote, but also because mid-century modern and scandinavian design hold a dear place in my heart. see more of this fun etsy store here.

latex-dipped baggu

how fun are these latex-dipped canvas baggu bags at west elm??? i never NEED a new tote bag but these seem extra useful and durable and the pop of color is fun. i love baggu bags and their duck bags come in even more great colors since i blogged about wanting one three years ago. (is this a sign i need to just get one already? ;)

i sewed these little guys for finch's holiday time boutique and i am really happy with how they turned out. i have been wanting to design my own plush that i can easily reproduce so i took the time and made a pattern too. (though i'm still perfecting the limb placement, as you can see each one is doing their own little dance ;)

my photos have gotten a lot of likes and comments on instagram so i am really excited to make more. i always wanted to make a keepsake baby gift for friends and have already received a request for one, YAY!

calendar sneak peek

i am working on a calendar with my [extremely talented super nice] friend maeve again and i am so excited about the updates we're making for our sophomore attempt! (junior attempt actually, as we did a calendar with our friends kara and sarah two years ago...miss you!)

here is a sneak peek at some work in progress that may or may not end up included. it's so much fun making a million colorways, i don't know how i'll ever choose...

bobby pins

how adorable are these kate spade bobby pins??? i love that they look like a box of matches, the little red ends peeking out of the box are too cute! all of the new arrivals on kate spade are so fun...and good to know my [very similar] bright pink coat is totally back on trend ;)

no.6 clog boots

today was a rainy gray day, typical of autumn in copenhagen. i did work for a client (during somebody's generously long naps!) and laid on my stomach and people watched out the window with that same little.

i wore sweatpants (obv) but wish i had these cute no.6 clog boots to pair with them--they look so warm! and a jumping picture? i love it!
