Setting your table for fall with Sunday Supply Co

Posted on November 24, 2014

**Photos courtesy of the very talented and gracious Rachel of Rachel Olsen Photography** Tricia and I are not only lucky to live in an awesome neighborhood filled with cool ladies who like to drink with us, but we also live in a really amazing town in Colorado that always tops the lists of “Best Places to Live”. The town is Fort Collins, Colorado and is home to an ever expanding line up of craft breweries and a quaint downtown area that we call Old Town. Old Town and most of Fort Collins has a very progressive Americana feel to it and large chain businesses are rejected in favor of small, locally owned operations. One such local operation that opened in Old Town Fort Collins very recently is Sunday Supply Co. Started by two of the cutest, and bravest, 20′something ladies Amanda and Kelli- Sunday Supply Co is a boutique that …

That Girl Kate  6. Sew Creative Blog  7. Petite a Petite and Family I went with the idea of embroidered Christmas t-shirts for my gang. This was a fairly easy project albeit not a fast one. I started out with some basic white inexpensive t’s from Target. I chose a font in the Cricut Design Space and created my words, “Merry” “Bright” & “Ho Ho Ho.” I cut them out with my Cricut Explore™ and I was ready to go! I used the negative space from the words as a template for my t-shirts. …

She’s crafty {Good Night, Sleep Tight Pillowcases}

Posted on November 19, 2014

Each year when Christmas rolls around my family and I have the discussion of whether we should exchange presents or not. Because when you reach a certain age giving presents gets more difficult, since most of us just go ahead and buy things we want or need. But nothing beats the feeling of finding the “perfect” something that you know will make someone’s day. One year my family decided that we could only exchange homemade gifts with each other. Being forced to think outside of my comfort zone ended up being more enjoyable than I would have guessed. That  year I learned how to make lotion, chapstick, granola, and almond butter- all of which were gifts I bestowed upon my family. And I learned that it’s easy to make all of the above, like way easy. This long ramble is to bring you to my point of this post- I …

It’s a Monday

Posted on November 17, 2014

Maybe you can tell by the lateness of this post it’s a Monday around here. Chaos reigned this morning and the project I was going to share with you did not work. I got up in the wee hours to make it happen for the post today but sadly my handy dandy old reliable Liquid Gold Leaf failed me. I guess there’s a first time for everything. So now it’s 10:05 I haven’t worked out, I haven’t showered, my little guy is on his second hour of Disney Jr. and all I’ve got to show for my efforts are hands covered in gold and a stinky, ugly craft situation in my laundry room. Damn. I wracked my mind to think of some amazing off the cuff project to share. No dice. Instead I’ve got some random thoughts (albeit not deep ones). Did you luck out with the Tom’s for Target …

Friday Five {Thanksgiving}

Posted on November 14, 2014

It’s the countdown to Thanksgiving – just another 13 days! Are you ready? We are gracefully bowing out of the Thanksgiving chaos for the second year in a row. Last year we took the kids to the Denver Aquarium for their Thanksgiving buffet. Let’s just say  that’s where you end up when you book late but at least the kids loved it. This year we’re going to attempt something a bit more grown up at one of Denver’s finer hotels. We’ll stay on in the city for the lighting ceremony the next night and have a fun, relaxed, happy weekend. I’m used to mass numbers of people cramming into my grandmother’s undersized town home – aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins and probably perfect strangers she pulled out the street thinking they were cousins. If I can’t have chaos and family around like that I’d rather go to the opposite extreme. …
