This time of year I love to send out cards of gratitude to those I love. Even though we thank them all year it is nice to put some of those things to words every now and then.

Every time I get a package from Evalicious, I get excited. Her little stamps, embellishments, stickers and new wood veneers are just adorable and the perfect accents to any paper crafting projects. I decided to do a single sided pocket page featuring Jack (surprise!) at 13 months. I mixed in my latest collection, Stitched, but you can really use anything from your stash with her […]
I’m constantly amazed at the kindness of creatives. You may remember this post about Buster. Several days later, I saw this on Instagram and was so touched by the incredible gesture and caption. Then I got this happy mail a few weeks later:Thank you SO much Olya! You’re incredibly talented. PS – For those of you wondering, Buster continues to do better every day.

Though it’s not huge, Jack’s playroom is a big part of what keeps our sanity in check around here. It’s a room dedicated just for his toys and he can play and make messes as he pleases. Though every once in a while, it’s nice to arrange things a bit and get the cars out of the oven in his kitchen, books back on the […]
