Handmade: The Messenger Bag
One of the best ways, I’ve found, to expand my creative abilities is to say “yes” even when that logical part of my brain is screaming “What are you thinking?! Say no! You’ve never done this before!” 
(Oh shush mind – it’s creativity, not brain s…

Make It Together : Pressed Leaf Wreath
Just a handful of weeks ago, I took the dictionary off my shelf and made an amazing discovery. There, tucked between the pages, were the most gorgeous pressed leaves.

This year I’ve been truly craving the Autumns I’ve grown to know and love over my years on this Earth, and finding…

Color Block Infinity Scarf : to knit and wear
I’ve moved a good fair bit through the years – different towns, cities, states, and countries – but I’ve always lived in places with four distinct seasons. This year, my first in California’s Bay Area, is a bit different. While natives would, I’m sure, argue t…

Tame the Mess! 6 Must-Have Creative Supplies
When I began crafting with my little ones it was pretty easy – just strip them down to their diaper and set them loose! But as they grew and wanted to do art more often, I knew that going clothes-free couldn’t always be the answer to taming the mess. For one, we live in the north…

A Time for Retreat
If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you’ll know that last week I had the good fortune to attend a four-day art workshop along the coast of Squam Lake in New Hampshire.
And many of you have asked for me to share my thoughts and experiences. But the truth is, I’m not sure that I can. Cer…

Crafting with Nature - Beach Mandala
Have you ever noticed that the most beautiful things in nature are impermanent? Rainbows, sunsets, blooming flowers, even old stately trees will someday fall. I think this is one of the most important reasons for little ones to be exposed to nature, to be able to explore it, notice it, and see…

Five Creative Tools for All Ages
I have fond memories of making and creating with my eldest, before his brother arrived. I remember afternoons in the courtyard, letting him dip his tiny toes into paint and make prints on large pieces of paper. Slow mornings with a batch of play dough, mixing and squishing and molding. Too long …

Why I Don’t Make Edible Art Supplies
I’ve noticed a new fad in the world of kids crafting – “edible” art supplies. Often this refers to a variety of paints, but can also include things like sidewalk chalk or play dough. And this new fad? I hate it. Truly. Every time I see a new post come out with an edible…
