every now and then...

i remember how once upon a time i had a friendship with the piano.
well..i still do! kind of. but now, life has replaced my time to play and enjoy what once made me so happy with a schedule that, if im lucky, grants me with a few hours of sleep. (note: i take full responsibility for that schedule! one day i will realize that i cannot take on the world and every job in it at the same time.)
however...we reunited today. i loved it! its amazing how fingers just remember where to go. its good to be back.

i know, i know...

the last three (including this one) posts have been the same posts as my photo blog. So its kind of like a cheat post. Sorry! I promise this will be the last one in the series. :) On that it is:

Upcoming Utah Photo Sessions!
I will be in Utah in the Salt Lake/Provo area from November 10-November 15.  So...if you or anyone you know living in the area would like a photo session while I am there, here is your chance! Perfect chance for a family Christmas photo, baby pictures, engagements, you name it. However, spaces are limited, so act quickly! Please email me for any questions, and for further information, as well as to secure your spot.

See you soon!!

my corner

of the October Fall Boutique will consist of:
1. Quilts:

2. Aprons:
for Mama baker and Little baker!
3. Skirts:
note: there are about a million more skirts that arent finished yet (i ran out of elastic) I also ended up with a lot of left over material so decided to make some little girl skirts as well.
aannndd of course some jewlery to mix it up.
I have a tendency to bite off more than I can chew on a daily basis. I dont know when I even found time to do any of this sewing!! (i never even thought i would learn to sew)
But somehow i did..and i am so excited for the boutique!!

Also at the boutique will be Little Penelope Lane's headbands, Pumpkin Seed's baby items, The Shabby Shack, and many, many, many more awesome vendors!

so if you dont have plans on Friday, October 15 or Saturday, October 16...Come!

Wednesday, September 1, 2010


can you believe it?? because i'm having a hard time believing that summer is over and September is here. 
i have mixed feelings. 
at the start of each new season, i always (always always) think that that season is my favorite. In December, i can list 1001 reasons why winter is my favorite...come March, there is another long list why i like spring the most. Summer can obviously hold its own when it comes to reasons why its the best.
and although i am in denial about summer coming to an end, today does mark the beginning of a new season. so i thought about all the reasons why fall is my new "favorite season." (for the fourth time this year.)

1. the colors. i love the dark and golden colors of fall.
2. pumpkin scented and flavored everything! (candles, bread, pies, and on and on)
3. the idea of crisp air and leaves changing and the need for boots and scarves. i say "idea" because lets be real...i live in california.
4. baking. baking. and maybe some baking.
5. apple cider!
6. the holidays. back to back from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas. There is always something to be excited about.
7. and lastly...the family. fall and winter always seem so cozy and family-filled and happy. 

so there you have it. seven reasons why fall is my "favorite" (ha!) season.

here's to you, september!
